    I bought a new laptop/tablet and have issues connecting to my Wifi. Both Android phones in the house, the SmartTV, etc everything can see and connect to the network fine. However, this new Dell Inspiron laptop which has Wireless N on board can't pick up either wireless network. I thought maybe outdated NIC drivers might be to blame, but it's updated(had to USB tether to laptop) and the issue persists.

    Laptop: Dell Inspiron 3185
    Router: Asus 56U w/ Fresh Tomato

    My network settings:

    Hey guys sorry to bring up an old thread but I found a solution and this seems to be a common issue not just with this laptop but this specific nic. I had to switch the country setting in FreshTomato to USA instead of Singapore(default setting in firmware) and it fixed the problem. The country setting has very little affect on connection issues generally but it fixed this problem!
