It has become necessary to fix my WiFi connection each time I reboot Vista on my Dell Inspiron 1525.


  1. First, I get a message that my Wi-Fi Catcher band configuration is not compaitble with the WLAN card band configuration. So I select YES to automatically change the band configuration.
  2. Next, I get a message that this is fixed.
  3. The final fix is to use the Diagnose and Repair function from the tray Wi-Fi icon. This fixes the problem until the next boot.
  • I tried to fix this by restoring to a restore point. The problem seemed to show up after an automatic update.
  • The restore did not fix the problem.

Anyone with an idea?

Hi turbine_guy,

I suggest you to update the wireless drivers, BIOS to the latest version and check if that fixes the issue. You can download the latest drivers from the following link by selecting the Operating System (Windows Vista 32-bit):

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thanks and Regards,
Rajath N

BIOS to the latest version






For others who may come across this thread there is no need to update a bios for wireless issues..

If a bios update goes south then your machine will be useless........
