We have a Dell laptop with the Vista OS that usually uses a dial-up connection. It has built-in wireless, however neither Internet Explorer 7 nor Outlook Express will use the wireless to access the net when we use it at other locations. Every indication shows that we have an excellent connection to a wireless router and the router password is accepted, yet IE doesn't connect with it. I have disable the dial-up and ensured that the computer is using wireless. The wireless switch is turned on and the computer agrees that the wireless connection is up and functioning. If I try to run "set-up" in IE for a new connection, it tells me that it's already there. I need to leave the dial-up connection there so we can use it occasionally.  How can I get IE and Outlook to use wireless when needed?
