Question about Dell Inspiron 5100 Wireless Mini-pci Network Card Card - P0906

1 Answer

Unable to connect to the Internet

Purchased a new router, D-Link 615R. Main Desktop computer is reading the connection fine. PS3 was able to connect via wireless fine as well. Laptop was reading the connection but could not bring up websites. D-Link could not figure out the problem. Returned the router and switched back to the old one, which is D-link as well but it is wireless G. Now the laptop is not connecting to that router either. It does not even read the wireless connection. Before the new router came into the picture everything was working perfectly.

Please advise.

Check to see if your wireless card is displayed under “Network Adaptors” in “Device Manager”. You can access the "Device Manager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If it is detected and there are no alerts or errors, try uninstalling the wi-fi card, reboot the laptop and reinstall the drivers.

Well, this seems to be an issue specific to the desktop computer. Please disable the firewall on the concerned computer and then check if that resolves the issue.

NETGEAR Wireless G USB Adaptor Problems


I contacted Bigpond after my whole internet collapsed due to my amature abilities in fixing the internet. >_<" yet they fixed my internet connection by disconnecting my current (DLINK DIR-300) router from the network. hmmmm... the technician also confirmed that my current broadband modem (2WIRE 2071-A) isnt capable of supplying a shared connection to more than one computer!! she also directed me towards a modem with an inbuilt wifi router that "supposedly" is the best option right now. (2701HGV-W) I'm a bit shaky and the stupid NETGEAR adaptor problem still exists - im willing to buy the new modem if its guaranteed to abolish this problem and give me a better internet wise outlook - please any suggestions will be appreiciated =)

Trouble with Linksys Wireless Router


Try unplugging both the modem and the router. count to 15 then plug back in and try.
Keep in mind also that some routers dont connect 100% till you open a browser, weird but I have had similar problems.
It sounds like you may have problems at both ends.
Several things come to my mind;
make sure you shut down ALL programs in the background.

you are trying to problem solve by elimination, so close anything that may connect to the internet and take away that variable.

scan for spyware etc.

do a registry clean, temp files cleanup etc.

sometimes restarting the pc can help
good luck

Try and change the cable from the router to computer with a new one and do the same with the modem and see if connects. Hopefully it's just the cables that are faulty.
