Hi there all,

Can someone help me out, I currently own a Dell XPS M1330

Specs: core2duo 2.4Ghz 4Gb ram, Intel wifi 4965 Windowsn Vista Home Premium 32bit

Since I had the laptop (since last week from new) the Wifi worked fine and so did the ethernet connection. On Saturday I installed a DELL mobile broadband 5520 mini card and installed the drivers from Dells website.

Problem 1: When i connect to the broadband service the system shows as conneceted but i am not able to access anything on the internet. I have have tried various sim card T-Mobile, 3, Vodafone but with no luck.

Problem 2: The following day I tried to use the internet using my Wifi connection, the connection ran good for about 15 mins then started disconnecting and was left with a limited connection and warning triangle in my taskbar.

Problem 3: I now get the same issue with the ethernet connection.

Problem 4: I have removed the drivers for the mobile broadband card and all seemed fine then about half an hour late I get teh same issue as above for both the wifi and ehternet connection.

Also every now and then I see a pop up message appearing saying that I am connected to an unidentified network.

Can someone help me out please

Many thanks in advance

Rikki

This may be a stupid question but.....did you start a mobile broadband service plan with your cellular carrier?
