Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2650 Notebook ?

The computer is not recognizing the Linksys wireless card. When the card gets plugged in, it lights up like usual, but now the computer is not recognizing it at all. It used to appear in the bottom right corner with my available networks. Now, nothing appears. Any assistance you can offer would be much appreciated.


Answers :

That the Card sees another wireless router tells me the Card/Adapter is receiving properly and if
\015\012configured properly it should also receive your network router.
Receiving another Router simply means that your Card is set to its' Channel. Therefore the problem is
\015\012probably configuration. All wireless devices require this for a successful connection
1. Use the same Network name (BSSID)
2. Use the same Channel
3. Use the same Password and Encryption
4. Set for the same wireless Network Type (Infrastructure or Peer to Peer) The terminology often
\015\012changes.
\015\012For Windows -- Open the "network connections" Page
Select "Create a new connection" to open the "Connection Wizard"
Choose " Connect to a Private Network" then Continue
\015\012There is also this route to connecting to your Network if config is correct.
Control Panel -> System -> Computer Name -> Network ID
\015\012Lastly there is this route
1. Remove the D-link Card's Software via Add & Remove Programs
2. Remove the Device/Card Adapter, if it is external
3. Install the Software and Card Adapter in accordance with the D-Link Instructions.
More often than not my clients have turned their wireless connection off accidentally, which may be a switch or hotkey on your computer. Other solutions may be: If you were using Linksys' software to configure, you may have removed it from startup. The drivers could be corrupt. A virus could disable it. The router is not transmitting or settings were changed there, preventing you from connecting with current settings. Generally in any situation, removing all software and drivers, rebooting, and (obviously from another computer) download the newest drivers from linksys' website, and installing those will most likely do the trick. (You will have to re-add connections you previously had, so if it's a secure wireless network, make sure you have the key.)
