Wireless wont come up

I have an Inspiron B120.  I have a Dynex Wireless Enhanced Adaptor notebook card for it with the software.  The software is installed.  However, when I click on the software to connect wireless, it won't open.  I have had the same problem with my past wireless USB (ZDLWAN) adaptor.  I can't even open a new wireless internet setup from the wizard.  Can someone please help me?

You say that you have a Dynex Wireless Enhanced Adaptor "card".  Is this a PCMCIA card or a USB wireless adapter?  If it truely is a card, are you aware that there is no PCMCIA slot on the B120?   The B120 has an Express Card slot which is not the same as a PCMCIA card slot.

With regards to your ZDLWAN that was not working.  You can try installing it again and testing that it can make a connection.  Try the following:
 
(1)  Remove the ZDLWAN hardware.
(2)  Uninstall the ZDLWAN driver via the Device Manager.
(3)  Install the ZDLWAN driver.  Do NOT connect the hardware before you install the driver.
(4)  Reboot
(5)  Connect the ZDLWAN hardware.
 
Now, if there is still no connection to your wireless router, is it able to connect to someone else's wireless router?  For example, the local "Starbucks" coffee house typically has a wireless access point.  While it is a for-pay system, you will still get a login webpage.  This will at least prove to yourself that the laptop with ZDLWAN is able to connect to something.
