I have Dell Inspirion 1525 on Windows XP. My wireless was working fine now suddenly stopped working. My router is fine as I can connect fine from my other laptop. On this Windows cannot 'repair' the connection, and I have tried rebooting etc. Hardware diagnostcis are fine, the wireless switch is in the 'on' position and wirelss is 'enabled' in the the system. On this I can connect wired to my router.

So I don't know what else to do. Any help is appreciated.

hi there,

reset the ip

tyke ipconfig /release in cmd

then folwled by ipconfig /flushdns

and ipconfig /renew

Thanks for responding. I had tried all this but it did not work. I downloaded the new WLAN driver from Dell and installed it. The installation took forever (many hours) and actually never completed but the wirless has started working. I am keeping my fingers corssed

Hello - just a quick question, I have a new Dell Inspirion with the 1525 Wireless card, but I cannot find an XP driver anywhere for it, including at the Dell site. If you did get an XP driver for it, could you tell which is was?

Thank you!
The driver is easily available on Dell site just naviatge for it:
