RE: What next? No wireless found: No problems either
Hey there Curt,
I know that there's been issues with the Wireless cards in the Dells for
Vista. (I have a D630 and went through some issues as well)
Dumb Question, have you grabbed the latest drivers from Dell's support
website at www.support.dell.com?
I'd start there first. Also, try
completely uninstalling the driver and software for the wireless card and
install the driver only. My solution for the D630s was that we just had to
uninstall and reinstall until it took. For some reason the installer is
funky and I'm almost positive that your wireless card is the same model.
Let me know if it works!
