Okay, well are you using your own network, or free lancing for wireless connections? maybe the network u have at home is down... is it the office, then you should call the IT pro to get you back online... Is it your network card, go start, run, type cmd. type ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew. then check if you network is working. while in cmd, check for "ipv4 address:" if it say 169.x.x.x you cannot go online with that and you connection is down.
go to device manager, find your network card, right click on it, and unistall the driver. stay in device manager, go up the tree, right click on your computer's name, click scan, your hardware will show up again with a "?" mark sign on top of it. if it does not install by itself, which it should, you need to find the driver. if it is installed, then try to do my first step again. cmd, ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew. if that does not help, let me know.

Currently I have no password for the internet. Is it possible to put one on it?


Once you have logged on to the computer as a user, you have access to the Internet, if it is connected. You need to change the access permission for the standard user accounts, by a user with an administrator account.
You can ban access to Internet explorer as a program, to prevent access to the Internet.

Internet explorer cannot display webpage


If you were able to post this question online from the computer in question, you have internet access. If this was posted from another computer, you don't have access at all so contact your internet provider. If it was posted from that computer, a trip to the store for it to be checked for corruption and/or viruses/malware is recommended. If you want someone to remotely access your computer to help, internet access is necessary so you need to determine that first.

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 test the connection immediately after selecting [Automatic] > [AOSS™] in step 7, the router settings may not be completed and the connection may fail. Wait approximately 1 or 2 minutes before testing the connection.
