Hey everyone!


Not sure if this is the correct part of this forum but I couldn't find a forum that would explain my problem best but here we go.


We have a Dell latitude E5520 laptop for one of our colleagues which is being used as his main work PC. This is because he has to move about a bit.


Anyway, he has problems connecting to unsecure wireless networks such as our free open WiFi that we got here. He can connect to secure wireless networks fine but when the network is unsecure the laptop connects but has no internet connect, either this or it'll connect (try to) to a secure network.


We have noticed that the laptop has Intel proset wireless/WiFi connection utility installed which we think is causing the problem. We have uninstalled the driver and re-install in hope that the software wouldn't download but it did.


Any ideas?

uninstall the software and leave the driver, use windows networking.
