Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Link to connect to wireless network does not work

\015 When I scroll over the bars where the internet is connected it says that there are wireless networks available, I also just installed my new router, and when I click on the link to connect to a wireless network it does not do anything. It worked before and now suddenly nothing happens. Please help!\015

Answers :

\015\012Make sure that the router is broadcasting your network (This is the SSID). If it is you should see the name of your network (make sure you change the name from the factory default). If not you will have to log onto your router (http://192.196.0.# number is specific to your brand of router. Should be in manual.).
\015\012When you log in under admin you can go to wireless tab and look for SSID broadcast. Make sure it is set to yes. If you have a power setting, make sure it is set to 100%
\015\012If you still cant connect you will have to run the network wizard that comes with your router again. Make sure to write your network key down (some routers are case sensitive so be sure to take that into account).
\015\012If that doesn't work, check the security levels, as it might be set to a higher level that does not accept new connections.
\015\012I hope this helps, if you have any other questions just let me know.

Try uninstalling your wireless device on your PC. Then reboot. It should automatically reinstall your wireless card after the reboot.
