Removing WIFI from Dell Control Point


Removing WIFI from Dell Control Point

by Larry McFarlin

Recently, Dell has started shipping laptops with their own proprietary software to control the WIFI connections on your laptop.  Personally, I prefer the configurability of the Wireless Zero Configuration Tool provided with Windows.  Several times I’ve attempted to remove the Control Point software only to find that it seriously debilitates the functionality of network connections.

If you prefer to use the built-in Windows software, or are having issues with the wireless portion of your Control Point software – here’s how to take back control of your WIFI functionality:

Click Start > Dell Control Point > Connection Manager > Profiles > Change Settings > Program Settings > Uncheck all of the available technologies boxes.

This should allow you to use the Wireless Zero Configuration Tool built into Windows.
