      DELL Card doesn't do wireless !

      Hi guys & gals !

      Router: NetGear DG834GT, Channel 11, mode b & g
      Wireless Card: Belkin Wireless G USB Adapter - WORK
      Wireless Card: Built in - Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Card - NO WORK

      I'm using the standard Pre-Shared key and the Belkin Adapter works like an absolute dream. I've also got MAC address filtering on. Dell don't wanna play !

      I'm just lazy and I don't wanna plug my USB adapter in each time !

      My Dell Wireless card won't even connect when the I turn the Wireless security off on the router. I've had a read through some of the posts and tutorials on the site, but I can't work it out. I guess it's something in my card configuration, but I've fiddled with most of the settings and still cannot get it to work. The Dell card does work with a LinkSys router at work, so it's not like the thing is faulty. The drivers are the most up-to-date and I've tried removing and re-installing.

      Any ideas would be greatly apprechiated !

      How old is the Dell laptop ? If the wireless is 11b there can be problems with the DG834GT router even when wireless mode is set to b&g. The advice from Netgear is to switch the router's wireless mode to b-only but that feature has been left out of the Sky firmware !

      Just thought I'd post to say this has been resolved.

      I removed everything and started again. As soon as I added the MAC address into the MAC filter, everything connected.
