Check if the IP address of your machine is within the network as assigned by the DHCP server of your modem/router. You might need to reconfigure your network settings to "automatically obtain IP address" and "...DNS". You can verify this by opening a command prompt and type "ipconfig /all"

If your computer is connected to the Internet by the use of modem, etc. The problem may lie in DNS settings or in ISP provider. You may contact your ISP provider about the problem.

Yellow Triangle Not Going


First, try shutting down each device, wait 20 seconds and try again. If it was working with this configuration, it should continue to work.

Second, I always suggest that in Device Manager, all network cards, wireless cards, and/or USB hubs have the properties changed to NOT "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". If the computer turns off the device, some device stay off.. it might be possible to goad them into restarting, but I wouldn't want to do that repeatedly.

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

If you mean phone modem on PC then no. Check connection between pc and router by acessing the webinterface (instuctions in linksys user manual).

If all OK there then contact your ISP.

I dont know haow to connect Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster WRT54GS - wireless router


  1. Connect your modem to the Internet port of the router. Your computer needs to be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports at the back of the router.
  2. Access the router's setup page by launching Internet explorer and typing 192.168.1.1.
  3. It will ask for a username and password. Leave the username blank and password is admin.
  4. Once your in the setup page, set "Internet connection type" with what your ISP requires you to have.
  5. If you have cable ISP, usually it is "Automatic Configuration-DHCP."
  6. But if you have DSL ISP, then it will be PPPoE. You need to know your username and password from your ISP.
  7. Better yet, verify your Internet connection type from your Internet service provider.
Hope this helps!

Will linskys work in rural areas


Which linksys device? what are you trying to do? Connect it to a DSL use it as a DSL or connect it to some other internet source.
Please be more specific.
But I can say now that if you are able to order Internet service in your area the most any router/modem such as a links will work.
My father lives in a very rual area of south eastern Iowa, he was able to order DSL service through a small company there who provided their own modem, we then connected that modem to a Linksys WAP54G so he can have wireless. Now he is able to surf wirelessly while sitting in the corn field near his house.
