Uninstall your wlan driver via device manager and install the newest driver from Dell. Drivers and Downloads

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

I tried to update my driver, but it says there is no newer version of it than the one I have now. I was able to connect to a wireless network before, but now I am not and I just cannot figure out why. Soon enough, if I cannot connect to a wireless network, I won't be able to connect to the Internet at all, and thats not good cuz I am a college student. By the way, I tried also to use Windows to find the wireless networks and disabled Intel (because I heard you cannot use both at the same time) but it still doesn't work. It says I am connected to the network, but when I open my Internet Explorer 7 browser, it says I have no connection to the Internet. Please, someone help me.
Well, have you put your correct password in? What type of security is it? WEP WPA etc.. Make sure the two are the sae, router and card.

I'd ditch ie7 too, go with 8 or something else
