Re: Dell wireless problems!
Try going to your Run program. In the box, type in ipconfig/ release. After it releases, then type in ipconfig/ renew. After that, close out the DOS (the page that you are typing this on) and then try to reconnect again. Hope this helps.

Limited connectivity If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wireless connection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptop probably did not get an IP address from the wireless router. To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and then click Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless card on the laptop.
I have the EXACT same problem on the same computer.
I'm not an expert so I searched online but didn't really find a lot of responses to this Dell issue. One suggestion was to turn off Intel PROset and let Windows manage the wireless connection.
That worked for me.
When in the Intel PROset menu, click on Advanced, then click on "Let windows manage your wireless set-up."
Alternatively, you can toggle between the two software by pressing F10.
This solution worked for me.
Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.
HI Boston I believe the wireless card that you have in your laptop is a dell wireless card.
Here are the instructions on how to get your wireless working Start-All programs-dell wireless-dell wireless wlan card utility-open the window and on the uncheck let this tool manage your wireless. Please make sure that Enable radio is checked otherwise no wireless networks will be detected by the computer. Once that is done go to start control panel in the left hand side make sure classic view is what is there. Go to network connection and you would see wireless network connection. Right click and click on view available wireless networks. click on refresh network list if any of the networks are not seen. Still no go try to enable the radio of your wireless card by pressing fn+F2 and then try.
if your getting limited or connectivity right click on wireless network connection go to properties, select on the top the tab wireless networks and remove your network from the preferred networks click on ok.
now get back to view available networks and try to connect to your wireless network.
make sure if there is a security on ur network you are aware of the ntework key and its case senstiive as well. otherwise ask linksys to give it to u.
if your wireless says connected check the ip address and post it here . for finding ip address start-run-cmd-click on ok
in the command window type ipconfig and post the ip address here.
alternatively also try updating the wirless card from the site http://support.dell.com thank you do post your results and feedbacks if any
I believe you are connecting to the internet using wireless. Are you using this laptop to connect to a home wireless network or you connect using a cable. This will be a good way to analyze your problem
Post the ip address that you are getting. You can get the ip by start -run-type cmd enter you will be in the black command prompt just type ipconfig and let me know what you get under ip address.
Also let me know the wireless router, your Internet Service Provider and also how many systems are there are at your home if you are connecting to a home wireless network. Also let me know which is firewall or antivirus program that you have.
thank you do let me know if this works and do share your experience.
Check your router is accepting backward compatible connections of 802.11b, as it may be set at 802.11g only especially if it's a 108 or 125mbps router as your laptop will only be 54mpbs and not see the router at all.
Sometimes you have to dissable then re enable the wireless network adapter or refresh it for it to do a new search of networks.
