Laptop wireless internet not working... [Solved/Closed]

Ask a question Brie - Latest answer on Dec 5, 2014 02:21PM
Hello,
I have a Dell laptop that will not connect to the wireless Internet provided by my in-home router. I can pick up wireless from my iPad and three different iPhones, but not my laptop.
I can access internet on the laptop when plugged into the router's ethernet cord, but not through wireless. It shows me my network when I try to logon, but it is grey in color and unable to select the wireless network.
The router is an AT&T 7550 Router and the Laptop is a Dell Inspirion.
Any suggestions??? Thank you in advanced!

Hello,

Try this 1

1) First make sure that your wireless connection is not disabled.

Click on Start --> In search box, type ncpa.cpl and press Enter

"Network Connections" window will be opened. If you find your wireless

connection icon in grey color then right-click on it and select "Enable".

2) Check your SSID and the security key.

Good Luck

Hi there
My Dell Laptop Wifi did not work and I reinstalled the Window 8 but still when I go to Networks setting the WiFi is still OFF and when I click on it nothing happens. This problem has started when I tried to upload my Kaspersky. Should I reset my laptop to its factory setting? If yes how do I do it with Windows 8. Would very much appreciated your guidance. Kambiz
