RE: Inspiron 1545 - did not see Internet from WiFi

Hello,

I tried looking at the image you linked but it's so small, and low resolution, that I could not make it out even when I enlarged the page.   What wireless network card do you have in the system?  

According to your message it sounds like wireless is turned off in your system, either through Windows 7 or in the BIOS.   Here is a quick explanation on how to turn on (Enable) wireless in Windows 7.  Here is a link to the online setup guide for the Inspiron 1545.   Page 9 of that pdf explains how to Enable / Disable wireless.  Try it and see if that works as well.  

To better help me troubleshoot this issue please right click on my Dell Todd username and send me a private message with the Dell Service Tag of your Inspiron 1545 system.  Please keep all troubleshooting discussions here on this public thread so that others can see what is discussed.

Hello Todd,

I wrote to you private massage 2 days ago, please check it.

Unfortunately non of your advice helped me, either turning on wireless in Windows and turning on network connection using keyboard on Inspiron. I have no idea even how to start solving my problem. Maybe you can have some others advices? Or anyone who read this topic.

Tlen777,

Did you recently install/reinstall the operating system? If yes, did you install the Dell System Software (if applicable) and the chipset drivers first? If not, the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

Still using Windows 7?

Thanks Rick for answer, and sorry for my late reply - i trying to figure out what's wrong by myself.

I don't remember order of driver installation. I can't install some drivers, and dell program to diagnose problem so it starting to be annoying.

Take a look at this screen, maybe it will help

Tlen777,

I can't remember if 14.3.2.1 has the correct drivers or not. Try...

Installing My Wi-Fi Technology

And see if it installs.
