As of now, the Wi-Fi stack is very basic almost non-existent. This will take time as developers have other high priority tasks to accomplish within the ReactOS project. You can, however, connect the machine via a Ethernet cable if Dell D-505 comes with a Ethernet port. Bear in mind you need also the required network drivers though and make sure that you manually copied every driver system file (in case the Hardware Wizard fails to install the driver for you).

Thanks for the answers.
Tomorrow I'll try it and I'll tell you.
If I get it, I will say step by step how I did it, for the next one to try it.
Regards!
