    Things to look at to see if the Connection enabled

     

    When you run Finding System Information remove your product ID what do you see under network adapters?

    What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

  • viswa46,

     

    I am not seeing your wireless card in the list. Did you recently reinstall the operating system? If so, how?

     

    If not, the wireless card may have come loose. Try looking at the instructions HERE. Take the wireless adapter out and reseat it, soo if it helps.

  • Check this!!!

    hey i had the same problem while installing Dell Wireless WLAN driver...But i figured it out why does it happens...You need to install the correct chipset and the correct driver. If the chipset is of lower version and the graphics, audio and wireless driver is of higher version, it occurs. So the best solution is try installing the latest chipset. Hope this will help you coz it helped me !!!

    Good Luck
