wireless network unavailable

  • My wireless network connection suddenly became unavailable marked with a red x. I am running Windows 2000 Pro on my inspiron 2500 laptop and using a truemobile 1300 wireless adapter. Any changes that I submit to my modem are detected in the site monitor as changing chanel etc but the link status still shows No netwrok available. I can see my network listed in the available networks but can not connect because of the network connection issue. I called Belkin for help since I am using one of their wireless routers G and they told me to try to change to the Windows utility rather than using the Dell wireless utility but could not find it under the wireless networks tab of the Dell wireless utility. Any suggestions please on this issue.
    Thank you in advance.

  • Do you mean that your wireless card under network adapters in device manager shows up with a red x as disabled. If so right click on your wireless network card and select properties and then you can enable it from that page at the bottom. To get to device manager. Go to start control panel/system/hardware/device manager and click on network adapters.
