Disable the Dell Wireless WLAN Utility.

Click on start.
Click on All Programs.
Find "Dell Wireless WLAN card utility"
Click on it to open the folder.
Click on its application icon by the same name.

On the utility that opens up un-check Let this utility manage your wireless network.

Does the ball still bounce back and forth.

When I get to 'Dell Wireless WLAN card utility' it isn't a folder that opens but the item in the image above.
If I un-check the top box, the ball appears and is seeking a connexion.

Where do I find the wireless drivers? At one time I found a 'pop up' about drivers for the wireless but can't find it now.
Verizon did an online check and said every thing is ok. But if I can find the 'update drivers' again, I'll give that a try.
