    Ive just installed Windows Vista on my girlfriends Dell Inspiron 1300
    and the wireless wont work, it says it cant find any networks in range
    even though its broadcast... I managed to get it on by inserting the LAN,
    fiddling about in Network Connections (been on for 4 hours now) then the
    1st time I removed the LAN the wireless connection failed then the 2nd time
    i removed it it worked great but as soon as i plugged that LAN cable into the
    2nd laptop (where the LAN is normally) the wireless (on laptop1) reported
    limited..or no connection and wouldnt work....

    Now I cant get the wireless working, even if I broadcast it with no security
    OR insert the LAN and mess around... It now reports no wireless in range
    tho im right next to it (1.5 meters away) and the wireless card is installed
    and enabled...???

    Does anyone know what this is? its a Dell 1370 Internal WiFi running on VISTAs
    own software/drivers for it (downloaded dell vista drivers but had to restore
    vista after installing as it was constantly reading the hard-drive ????

    All i ever read about is people wishing that VISTA never came on there 'new'
    PC cos it just wont work right with anything...

    UPDATE: have got it working again.. this time i just left it and it eventually connected,
    I have removed the LAN and its still on, Iam now going to restart the laptop (without
    turning on laptop no.2) to see if still works.. if it does. great, but ive a feeling that
    it will go off when i turn on no.2 with LAN in...

    Any help any1?
