Re: Wireless is not working with Dell Inspiron 620s

In which order you have installed the drivers? You have to first install desktop system utility and then you have to install chipset drivers in your PC. After installing the chipset drivers you have to follow this order.
  • PCMCIA/Smartcard controller
  • Intel Storage
  • Audio
  • Video
  • Network Interface Card (NIC) / Ethernet Controller
  • Dell Control Point (DCP)
  • Dell Quickset
  • Wireless Network Card

Re: Wireless is not working with Dell Inspiron 620s

If above solution does not help you to solve this problem then I will suggest you to first restart the computer and then you have to Go to the BIOS by pressing F2 key and then you have t make sure the wireless enabled there. If it Is not enabled then enable it first and after enabling the WIFI you have to restart computer. after restarting the computer you have to check whether it makes any difference or not? if you have already tried this solution then I will suggest you to remove all the wireless drivers and turn off the computer. Now remove Dell Wireless 1502 (802.11n) WLAN Half-height Mini-Card and reseat the card properly. Now starts your computer again it will automatically install the driver. After doing this you have to check what the result is.

Yes you have to also turn off power option for wireless adapter from the device manager. go to the device manger and then you have to right click on wireless adapter and then select properties. Uncheck power option from the power management tab and then your problem will get solved. I hope this solution will fix your problem.

In my computer I was having Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility and then I have adjusted adapter setting to highest performance and then my problem get solved. I think you should also try this solution and then your problem will get solved.
