I have Dell Inspiron 6400.
I re-install Windows Xp Pro.
I installed all the latest drivers.
After I installed "Dell Wireless (US) WLAN Card". it installed the wireless progrma.
I can see the wireless monitor.
But when I am tring to enter the monitor or accessing the "Wireless configuration Utility" from the control panel.
I am getting a pop-up box with his title:
The text of this box is: "Internal configuration is inconsistent. Please restart the machine to resolve the problem".
When I restart winodws it takes 10 miuntes to do so.
And the problem is not fixed.
Please help me.
there are some Dell - Drivers.
What driver to download?
Dell Wireless (US) WLAN Card?
Dell Wireless 1490 Dual-Band WLAN MiniCard?
I entered my service tag.
It says that I need the Intel driver.
I installed the Intel driver but it didn't work.
I ccn't connect thorw wi-fi.
So the Intel is not the right one.
Witch other driver to try?
I think there is some confusion. Your original post indicates you were having problems with the Dell WLAN utility. If you are installing an Intel WLAN driver yet have a Dell WLAN card, you will not be able to connect.
I have problem with Dell WLAN utility. After I install the utility I get the massege.
I worte that if I install Intel Driver I don't have wireless.
What driver should I install?
i found solution for my problem.
In Dell web-site there are some wireless drivers.
The problem happened becoused I installed Intel driver, and it didn't work.
And after that I installed Dell wireless dirvers.
What I did is to format my laptop.
I installed ONLY DELL WIRELESS.
Now everything is working.
I have wireless and it doesn't take me 10 minutes to shutdown.
I am using a Dell Inspiron 6400 with WinXP Media Center Edition SP3. I have the same problem with the wireless error, even with the "update". I got my computer from eBay, but it did not come with the disc for Dell Wireless1390 WLAN Mini-card nor the Windows installation CD. Also, it came from Canada, and I live in the US. I would like to keep my stuff without having to format and settle with a Vista version.
EDIT: Thanks to tomicjr for finding a solution to this problem. It may be a hassle, but hey it works.
The following registry key will enable the opening of the utility, but must be reset after every boot:Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Broadcom\802.11]
