    Do you have wireless equipment installed in your home, or are you at coffee shops or airports?

First you need to purchase or aquire a wireless router which can send out a wireless signal. Be sure to bring you laptop to the store to ensure you hare busing a router which emitts te right frequecy.

for example, there are laptops whihc have a 802.11b wiress adapter and thos which have a 802.11n whic only works on on a 802.11 n frequency, so please be sure to check with the sales person.

Also, if you are goin withing 100 fee from the router for just in appartment or upstairs or down stairs you will not need a high end system. You may want a middile of the road option no more tha $75 for the router.

You would simply plug in the wireless router to the ethernet cable. It will come with software which would walk you though instructions on how to enable your wireless net card on you laptop and to detect and secure your wirteless router.

Hva e fun.

What do i need to do to connect to the internet wireless with a dell inspirion 1000 24 hours


If your laptop does not have an internal wireless card you have options. You can get a usb adapter or get a car slot wireless adapter. Of course then you need a source for connection. You can pick up a high speed connection from verizon that works just about anywhere. Please give me a good rating. It means a lot to me. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

Wireless network connection not working


For some reason known only to Dell, the default setting for the Inspiron 6000 built-in wireless network adapter is 'off' or 'disabled.'

If you used Dell's restore disk to reinstall XP, the radio button is turned off. Go to control panel/system/device manager, find the wireless LAN device, right-click on it and choose 'Properties.' Under 'Wireless radio' check 'on' or 'enabled.'

Go back to Windows network setup wizard and go back through the steps using the 'restore network connection' button. You should be good to go.

There's an EXCELLENT network manager from Cisco named 'Network Magic' that takes all the guesswork out of setting up your internet connection. I highly recommend it. They offer a free trial and I think may even have a 'Lite' version that helps with simple connections without the bells and whistles of the full blown program. I'm not sure about that, but I can't tell you how much time it's saved me troubleshooting and setting up networks for my clients.

Dell pc will not work with linksys router


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

Dell Inspiron 6000 with network card Intel/Pro Wireless 2200 BG


So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck

make sure that your wireless or wifi light is on,you may try to press Fn and F2 at the same time to enable or swith on wireless..if wifi is already on,try going to start >> control panel >> network connections,go to wireless network connection and double click it, it will give you a list of wireless network,or right click and then "view available wireless network", if you get an error that windows cannot configure wireless connection,go to start >> all programs >> loo for either dell wlan utility or intel pro wireless, by opening that app,it will also search for wireless network in range,just double click on the network name where you want to connect and you sould be connected provided that "wireless network" doesnt have encryption like wpa or wep key..if your connecting to your home network,you should have wireless router at home and wireless is enabled on the router.
