    I recently had to reinstall Vista, but my wireless lan, which worked without problems before no longer works on this computer. The wireless search switch on my Dell Insipiron 1721 no longer works, and finds nothing, let alone my router. My other computer works just fine wirelessly off the router, as does my Blackberry. And connected by cable everything works fine
    How do I solve this?

    Hi Haskel,

    Normally Dell provides a drivers CD for its computers in case there is a need for a reinstall. Have you installed the drivers for your WiFi card on the Inspiron 1721? It would be better to get updated ones from Dell's support site or the WiFi card manufacturer's site.
