Hello,
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.

Thx

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!
