Wireless Broadband and Laptop

Hello,
Just bought a Dell Laptop and I'm trying to set up the wireless broadband connect.
Can anyone tell me what I should put where it prompts me for my "ISP" and what the syntax should be. Sorry to sound so ignorant.

Re: Wireless Broadband and Laptop

Isn't Wireless Broadband Connect the Dell name for the onboard 3G wifi card?
If so, thats not the device you need to configure to access broadband via PN - thats the device you put a phone sim into.
This would fit with it asking for an ISP too. A wireless LAN card on the other hand, is an entirely different kettle of fish!
I think you may be looking in the wrong place, but the only Dell Notebook I have with Wireless Connect on it is at work - so I can't be more detailed ATM.
Perhaps tomorrow I can be of more help though.

Re: Wireless Broadband and Laptop

do you mean your are setting up a internet connection for the first time with a brand new dell laptop like the inspiron 1501 that has a inbuilt dell wireless card ie 1390 wlan and not a mobile phone connection device?
