I have an insperion 1520. I recently had a lot of problems with my computer so I reformatted my hard drive. Everything seems to be working fine except my wirless. My computer finds my network and says it it connected and the signal is excellent but I cannot get onto internet explorer. The start page comes up but it tells me it cannot find the web page. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I think I did.
Can you see anything with Mozilla Firefox
I tried the IEFIX but apparently I do not have the right disk. I used the one I got with my computer. I am able to get onto IE if I hardwire the computer to my router. It is just when I try to get on with wireless. I am going to load Mozilla with the hard wire and see if that will help.
One other thing is that the little computer icon on the bottom right of my computer has an x on it even though when I check my Dell wirless icon and it says I am connected and the signal is excellent.
Could be a driver issue with the red x and may be affecting things. What virus protection are you using and is it updated?
Did you insert the Vista disk and stop it from running. Start, all programs, accessories, right click on command prompt, left click run as administrator. Type
sfc /scannow (space between the c and /)
Hit enter and it will check to make sure your Windows files are intact.
