I have been on the Dell site to download the drivers for all devices. Everything is working well apart from my onboard wifi card.
I have downloaded & installed the dell truemobile drivers & the intel PROwireless drivers from http://support.dell....5&os=WW1&osl=EN without successfully connecting to my wireless network at home.
I have uninstalled & reinstalled drivers few times and now when I reboot my system it asks me specifically for the "Intel ® Pro/Wireless 2100 LAN miniPCI Adapter" driver.
When I have the "Intel ® Pro/Wireless 2100 LAN miniPCI Adapter" driver installed, my laptop will find the wireless router signal & try connecting to it. It will then bring up an error saying it cannot connect and I should contact the network administrator, which is myself. On my wireless router I have allowed it to assign only 1 of 3 ip addresses. I have entered one of these ip addresses instead of "obtain ip address automatcally" in the tcp/ip properties of the wireless network. Then when I do an "ipconfig" I get a message saying "media disconnected". This seems to me that the laptop still cannot communicate correctly with the wifi card.
If anyone has any ideas on what drivers to use or even if anyone has a D505, could you take a screen shot of your device manager so I can try fix this problem.
