    Regards DELL Inspiron Mini10 v10.11

    Hi guys

    I just installed windows 7 on my netbook witch was on XP before.

    Unfortunately now the wireless Has stopped working.

    I have downloaded the latest driver from the dell website...also I have checked in Device Manager and the wireless card seems to be ok and is detected. (no yellow explanation marks). I have also made sure the network adapater is enabled.

    I just cant get round , why it's still not working. for me to enable the wireless capability, I have to click on F2. But that doesnt seem to respond! when I was on XP, it used to say enabled or disabled on the screen. but it doesnt say anything now.

    What can this be??

    I hope someone can help

    Have you checked bios to see if it's disabled in there, otherwise have you tried using the FN key with F2 to see if you get any joy
