    Help please, my Dell laptop is not detecting my sky wireless router. My sons dell latop sitting next to it is fine. The wireless light is on ontop of the keypad but under choose wireless connection, no networks are found in range and i cannot connect to the internet?

    Am I doing something silly, many thanks for your help guys, Els


    Try rebooting first.
    Make sure the wireless network card adapter is enabled in the device manager.
    Are you using the Dell wireless manager or is windows managing the wireless networks?

    Obviously the laptop has worked in the past and what OS (XP or Vista)?


    As above..... Plus have you checked to see if there is a newer driver for your wireless card?

    And I would say its better to let windows manage the connection rather than the dells.

    Does it work when you connect it by ethernet? (plug in a cable)

    Have you allowed windows to confiure your wireless?
