Something very screwy with my machine. I have a Latitude E6410, Windows 7 and an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6250 AGN wireless adapter. The Windows 7 wireless bar shows up in the bottom right with an "X" over it. The blue LED wireless light just above the keyboard is on. So I go to All Programs > Intel PROSet Wireless. On my XP machine I had a utility there. Now my only choices are WiFi Advanced Statistics, WiFi Event Viewer and WiFi Manual Diagnostics. When I run the Diagnostics, it goes:
Hardware Test: Passed
Driver Test: Passed
Radio Test: Failed (Software radio is OFF)
I checked device manager, and my adapter is enabled. If I right click the wireless icon with the X, I can go to Troubleshoot Problems. It searches for a moment, then brings up a windows that says "Turn on wireless capability". So I select "Apply this fix". Then it brings up a window saying "Troubleshooting was unable to automatically fix of the issues found and these are the detailed msgs:
Wireless capability is turned off: Detected
Turn on wireless capability: Failed
Tried reinstalling the drivers, but no luck. Any ideas what I should do??
Welcome to the Community. Please check if the Wi-Fi Catcher is enabled in the Bios. Press F2 at the Dell Logo it should take you to the Bios, move down to wireless, and check if the Wi-Fi Catcher is enabled. If disabled, enable it and make sure to save changes and exit.
Let me know if that helped.
