    Vista, 7 and 8.


    Try to remove the Connectify software from the registry editor. Delete everything under Connectify folder. After that, go to Dell's website and download your wifi driver.

    gabe dont worry thats not the problem, first you have to update your BIOS by updating your motherboard driver.

    Thanks everyone for your help. I just repaired it by reinstalling the BIOS. My BIOS version installed was already A11 and I reinstalled the same version over it . My wifi card is working good now. I'll come back if the problem shows up again.
