View Full Version : dell vostro 1510 xp pro

I had done a reinstall of xp pro on this laptop
great but !!!!!
dell used to show a signal strength meter in the bottom tool bar down by the date.
What I think has happened is now "window's " control the wireless network whereas before dell utility did
so how do I get it back to being controlled by dell utility-program and show the signal strength meter again
I don't want to pay the geek person any more if I can avoid it

1. Download the software from Dell or install from the CD's.
2. When you install it, it should take over the Wireless.
3.OR open the control panel/ network connections, Wireless Tab, untick the use wireless Zero configuration. The other software should take over.

Its a bit late now - But the old install would have had all the drivers in a sometimes hidden folder in the C drive - just in case you cant download them, or no CD's are supplied.
