Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

I am using Dell D600 with WINXP SP2. It detects the wireless network but it is unable to connect with it. I have tried all tools available on dell site but nothing worked.

 

Can anyone suggest a solution to this.

Re: Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

Are you running with any security on the wireless? If so disable it and see if it will connect?

Temporarily disable your firewall/av and see if it will connect that way

Boot the computer to "Safemode with network support" and see if it will connect there.

I have tried all, NO FIREWALL, NO ROUTER SECURITY, NO ANTIVIRUS & SAFEMODE WITH NETWOK SUPPORT.

The problem is same, It detects a network but can't connect.

Re: Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

Starting to think that perhaps the card is bad.

Try running this WinSock XP FIX Just download it to you desktop and run it.

Also check in device manager to make sure that the adapter is showing correctly and with no errors next to is.

Tried the WinSock fix, but the problem is still there. Any other bright idea.

Re: Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

Remove and reinstall your wireless drivers. Make sure you router has the latest firmware.

After that would suggest  a new wireless card.

Re: Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

If it can see the wireless network, it is almost always a configuration problem (though it is occasionally a hardware problem with the card).

 

Is MAC address filtering enabled on the router you are trying to connect to?  If it is then you will need to add the MAC address of your wireless card to the list of allowed adapters.

Re: Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

I have tried reinstalling windows and all drivers. Actually its an Intel Centrino Machine with 2100 Network Connection Wireless Card.

I have tried drivers from Dell & Intel itself, have tried many configurations but of no USE. Then have read an article that sometime its due to Accesspoint or router (compatibility issue), so now I am trying to find a USB wireless Lan or a router to prove the theory.

 

Anyway thank you all for the help and if you find any info on this problem please let me know. The wireless router I am using is Zyxel, and my own HP Pavilion is working fine with it.

Re: Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

I'm having a somewhat similar problem with my D600. It has a Dell TrueMobile 1400 Dualband WLAN card and was working fine until I got a virus. I had to reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and all the drivers. I now get very inconsistent performance. Sometimes it connects just fine and other times not at all. Right now it is sitting next to the wireless router and saying low signal level, status unknown. Now, a few minutes later, it's fine with good signal strength. I'm pretty confident I have the right drivers installed so I don't kow where else to look.

Re: Wireless LAN Problem in Dell D600

when you reloaded the drivers did you follow this sequence of reloading them

When you look in Device manager are any devices shown with either a ! or X next to them
