Having problems with your Dell Latitude D620 Notebook ?

Wireless connection won't work at home

\015 I just got my new laptop. The wireless connection works just fine at work - finding my office network as well as 4 others within range. But when I go home, it doesn't find my wireless network at all. Says no networks in range. (And, yes, I confirmed the wireless is working - that's how I'm sending this right now.) \015\012\015\012My wireless network is using 802.11b, which is the same at the office.\015\012\015\012I've checked the settings on my home computer network connection and they all seem the same as the laptop.\015\012\015\012Why wouldn't it even FIND the darn network?\015\012\015\012TIA.\015

Answers :

I had this problem once and it was being caused by my wireless entertainment speakers. Changed the channel they were broadcasting on and it was fixed immediately. The wireless transmittors for other electronics will sometimes your signal to your computer.
As you can use the router to connect to the web, but your laptop is not reporting it, it could be the router is set to not broadcast its SSID, personally I always set this to be true to stop anybody picking up my router if they are nearby.\015\012\015\012The way to check that would be within the administration of your router, it will either have an IP address of url to go to to log into the admin side, then depending on model, but most do, there will be a section for the router's wireless options, one of which will be to broadcast SSID, if it is unticked, tick it and apply, your machine should then find the router via a wireless connection.
