No Broadband connection after hard drive replacement

I replaced failed hard rive on Dell XPS desktop, and have onlhy windows XP software with Internet Explorer installed. Using Cox cable and D-link router which is working fine with laptop either wireless or hardwired. My computers are not on a Network. Problem seems to narrowed to Desktop connector (router & cables are OK) or hopefully software settings.

I am sure it must be rediculously simple solution but I don't see it now.

Thanks,

Ray

1) First of all check your connections

2) Check if your network card drivers has been installed after your OS installation.

Go to My PC >> right click "Properties" >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network

Be sure that not appears this yellow symbol ( ! )

If yes, go to dell support website and get the drivers for your network card.

here: http://support.dell.com/

If your network card is OK, do this:

Open Internet explorer >> Go to >> Tools >> Internet Options >> LAN Settings >> Check the mark
"Automatically detect settings"

Ok

Open your browser and see what happen..............

    If still you don't have a connection, renew your IP address.

    To do that:


    Windows 2000/XP
    1. Click Start then Click Run
    2. Type "cmd" and Press Enter
    3. A command prompt will now open up on your screen.

    4. Type "ipconfig /release" then Type "ipconfig /renew"

    5. If there are errors during the Renew and you do not get an IP Address check your network cable and try rebooting the computer

Hello,
Is this your first router or you are replacing an existing one with this? If you had a router setup before don't name the wireless network the exact same as your old one unless you go into your wireless properties on all your wireless machines and delete saved profiles.
What kind of security are you using on the wifi? wep, wpa wpa2? If you are using wpa2 and have not updated all your computers to the latest service packs for windows you can have some issues as well. Some routers don't work well with ps3's, try setting the router security to wep and make a ten digit password.
Also the Dell XPS M1530's are known for bad performing wireless cards. You may be able to obtain an updated bios firmware from Dell's website to help fix this though i'm sure it's not the cause of why you can't connect to this router.
See if this helps, if not respond and I will give some more tips.

Cannot connect to internet


...When you try to use a Windows XP Internet-based program, such as Microsoft Windows Media Player or Help and Support Center, and you are using a broadband connection that has an established connection either to a broadband provider or to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) that uses proxy services, the Windows XP program may not detect the active connection.

You may receive either an error message that says "The destination is unreachable" or a prompt that asks you to create or configure the Internet connection.

The setup disc for the router only needs to be run once when setting up the router to work with your internet provider and modem/router. You can try putting the disc in your desktop computer and reconfiguring the router.

Does it need a modem or works on it's own ??


It doesn't need a separate modem; it replaces a modem in your home network. If it's properly connected to the phone line, and you have an internet service provider (ISP) supplying you with a broadband connection, and the PC is connected to the router, then it should all work fine.

If it isn't all working fine, the most likely problem is either that the wires aren't connected in the right places, or that the PC's internet connection isn't set up properly (e.g. if you changed from dial-up with a modem to broadband with a router).

If you have recently changed from dialup to Broadband, and you're running Windows, use the Network Connections wizard to set up the internet connection. In Windows XP you can do it this way:
1) click on Start
2) move the mouse to Settings
3) click on Control Panel
4) double click on Network Connections
5) click on File
6) click on New Connection Wizard
7) follow the instructions.

Your ISP should have sent you a CD-ROM to help you to connect, so insert the CD when prompted by the New Connection Wizard.

Sometimes you can just insert the CD into the computer and you'll be prompted to do everything necessary to connect to the internet. BT, for example, do it this way.

Good luck!

Yes it is very much compatible with your XPS M140 that transmits 802.11 b & g wireless connection. In which the Linksys WRT120N Router can accept a/b/g and N wireless connections.

Yes, the cable modem connects to the router and then you can connect wireless or by using the lan ports on the router with a cable. If you have security setup on the router you will need the passcode or you will need to push the reset button on the router to clear it to factory settings. Its not required but it is best to use the software that comes with the hardware

Dell Truemobile 2300 - cannot connect to internet


This is usually a router configuration issue. The router has to be configured to match your new broadband settings.

For example, your old DSL may have required some kind of login which was entered into the router. For most broadband cable connections, you set the router to get an IP address automatically.

Re-run the router Setup Wizard. You can download it here:
