    How to switch back to Microsoft wireless application from Dell wir

    Hi,

    I have a Dell and all of my wireless seems to be going through Dell's
    wireless application rather than Microsoft's. My roommate recently purchased
    a router from Apple for our wireless connections, and I am unable to pick up
    a signal for this wireless network. I called Apple, and they said it is
    because Dell's software is running my wireless connection rather than
    Microsoft's.

    Does this seem right to anyone? Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Thank you very much!
    Nicole

    They may be right. You may want to disable Dell Wireless and make sure the
    Vista WLAN AutoConfig service is running.
