Hi Troy,
\015\012Don't know if this will work with your Dell, but on my Averatec, I had to do the following.
\015\012Go to Start>Right click on My Computer and select Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, and Device manger. Click on + by the Network Adapters. Right click on your wireless, Intel or Broadcom wireless adapter, and click on Advanced. Findd the Minimum Power Consumption and make sure it is disabled. If you have a Power Management tab, click on it, and uncheck both boxes.
