If you are using the wireless on your Dell laptop, check and see if you have either the Intel 2100 or 2200 wireless card. If so, you want to update the driver for this card and possibly use the Intel wireless config utility rather than the Windows Wireless Zero.
The original Intel driver is a DOG and the updated driver (10/05) is much more stable. See what the Dell site has, but I have been using what is on the Intel site for many machines.
