Start->Run, CMD [Enter]
In the command window that opens, run the command

Reboot, try connecting again. Let us know what happens, please.

Have you checked the wireless switch on laptop itself? I have seen weird causes like that sometimes. Also, do you have all of the updates and patches for Windows XP installed? (I'm going to assume that you have Service Pack 3 -- if not, make sure that you do)

Have you tried using the Dell Wireless Utility to connect instead of Windows WZC?

What's the exact error?  Have you tried connection to open networks with no auth / security?

Download the xp drivers (if they exist) for the wireless - xp is too new to have them built-in. If they dont exist, get an external wireless adapter that actively advertises xp compatibility.

There are different wireless drivers for that unit. Please post the service tag if possible.

or

Open Device Manager, double-click on the wireless device entry to open it's properties. Click on Details and paste the PCI\VEN entry here. Make sure you get all of it.
