I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop and I am unable to view an wireless connections. I turned on the WiFi signal using the F2 button and was unable to even view any available WiFi connections. I usually see at least 6 different secured WiFi connections (including my WiFi). I also used Dells PC Checkup and found no errors. I installed all the network devices recommended based on my Dell Service Tag. I also did the Windows Update and installed all of them. I am open to any suggestions. NOTE: I purchased a Dell Inspiron 1545 after my same model stopped working after my motherboard got fried. I bought the used one and transferred only my hard drive to the new laptop. All the tests/actions stated above was done for the new laptop after I had put my hard drive in the new laptop. I am having trouble picking up any WiFi connections and new devices by Bluetooth. When I got to Dell Wireless it tells me there's no wireless adapter or it is enabled.
