\015\012Dell has a software called Dell Utility in the Programs. Look for the same and look for Radio on /Off check box. Sometimes the radio tends to turn off automatically because of which you may not be able to connect to internet.
Hi\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. This is happening not due to a software issue but due to hardware issue. The physical connections inside your laptop on the WiFi card are loose. Or it may have happened due to a loose connection between the WiFi card and motherboard. Try and open your laptop and check for the physical connections inside the laptop. Please see this disassembly procedure--\015\012

  • Turn\015\012 off the laptop. Make sure the laptop has been shutdown completely and that\015\012 the computer is no longer plugged into a wall outlet. Remove the battery.\015\012 If you have recently been using the computer, wait at least 3 to 4 hours\015\012 before disassembling it to reduce the amount of static discharge.

  • Remove\015\012 the keyboard panel. Pry off the strip of plastic located directly above\015\012 the keyboard. This piece is covering several screws attached to the\015\012 motherboard, and removing this first is the easiest way to get to the\015\012 motherboard components and the cooling fan.
