    Ok my laptop was working fine until a while later on in the night... i was playing Company of hero's and i had moved my laptop from room to room.. i unplugged my mouse and other things and was using just the laptop itself with no other outward conections. I went to get back online in my room but it didnt allow access to the internet..it said NO INTERNET ACCESS NO CONNECTIONS AVAILABLE..and ive had this problem be4 but it would connect after trying 1 or 2 times.... so i plugged it up to the router with the ethernet cable and its conecting fine but i want it wirelessly yet every time i go to connect it doesnt even detect my families network. and i dont know what to do...if anyone can give me some tips id greatly appreciate it. PS. im only 14 so im not too tech savvy and it would be easier on me if you could thoroughly explain what i'd need to do..:(

    Check to see if you have a button on the laptop that turns your wireless modem on and off, I am not familiar with dells laptops but i know my Toshiba and my HP both had a button that would disable it. [From dell Website] The wireless switch will be either a sliding switch on the left or right side edge of the computer, a key combination or single key, look for the wireless icon. For example on the N7110/17R, N5110/15R and the N4110/14R, press and hold the <FN> key and then press the <F2> key to alternatively turn off or turn on the wireless function on the computer.

    If you are trying to use the integrated wireless adapter is it switched on?
