Hi Rewaj,

Please follow the below steps to resolve this issue:-

  • Make sure the distance between the system and the router is not more than 30 feet.
  • Change the wireless channel and change ‘Roaming aggressiveness’ to ‘Highest’. Following are the steps:-
  1.  Click on ‘Start’ and right click on ‘My Computer’ and click on ‘Manage’.
  2.  Click on ‘Device Manager’.
  3. Click the + sign to expand the ‘Network Adapters’ entry.
  4. Right-click the wireless adapter and click ‘Properties’.
  5. Click the Advanced tab to configure the advanced settings.
  6. Click “Roaming aggressiveness and change is to “Highest”.
  7. Also, click on “Wireless Channel” and change the channel to ‘11’.
  8. Check if the issue is fixed.

I will recommend you to uninstall and re install wireless driver in case the issue is not resolved:

  1. Click on ‘Start’ and right click on ‘My Computer’ and click on ‘Manage’.
  2. Click on ‘Device Manager’.
  3. Click the + sign to expand the ‘Network Adapters’ entry.
  4.  Right click the wireless adapter and click “Uninstall”.
  5. Once done, click on 'Start' and click on 'Control Panel'.
  6. Click on 'Programs and features'.
  7. Look for Dell wireless 1701's software; right click on it and click on 'uninstall'.
  8. Restart the system and click on the link to re install the driver: http://dell.to/TKf8Ni 
  9. Click on 'Download File' and select 'Single-file download'.
  10. Click on 'Continue'.
  11. Click on 'Save' and save the driver on the desktop.
  12. Right click on the driver from the desktop and click on 'Run as administrator'.
  13. Follow the on screen instructions to install the driver.

If the issue still persists, update the BIOS:

 Note: Please save any unsaved data as your system will restart automatically after updating the BIOS. Disconnect all the external peripherals like printer, camera, scanner, external hard drive, flash drive etc. Also, the battery should be charged 10% or above.
