Use the lan connection to get online, then once prob clears you should be all set, otherwise back up your data and a fresh install always does the trick

How to get my dell lattitude c400 with wifi to connect with my motorola flipside, i already have pdanet, a usb cable connected,moto phone portal and i can get on internet on laptop


Dell uses it own wireless utility ..

  1. Open the Dell wireless Utility and uncheck the box at the top that says "Let this tool manage your wireless networks". You may then need to open Network Connections, right click the Wireless connection and select Properties, click on the Wireless Networks tab and check the box next "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings".
  2. And then try to connect again ..

I just purchased a Dell Latitude 6500 laptop and I can't connect to my home network. I am using an Intellinet router.


hi! there is no problem with your internet connection with your router but the problem is your dell lattitude wont connect to the wireless network, please try to disable your dell software for connecting to wireless network and just use the windows wireless zero config, check the on the taskbar on the lower right of the monitor, there is an icon for the wireless connection for dell, right click it and select disable, sometime there is an option that windows will ask if you want to turn on the wireless zero config..if it didnt ask, click onn start, run and type in service.msc then it will show the services go to the buttom portion and enable the wireless zero config..

Cant connect to the internet.


Click on Start and type CMD. Open CMD and type ipconfig. Check out the IP address V4 for the Local area ethernet adapter or wireless area adpater depending on wireless or wired connection. Any ip address other than of the class 169.254.x.x shoud be considered good. If you have an IP address is any other number other than the above you have a good IP address. to test the internet connectivity type PING www.google.com. If the results are Packets sent 4 Recieved 4 Lost 0 then the issue could be due to Internet Explorer bing corrupt or a firewall blocking the internet access. Power off the computer. Power on the system and as soon as you see the Dell logo please tap the F8 button 3 - 4 times. You'll get to teh Advanced Windows boot option screen. Select safe mode with networking and see if the internet works in the safe mode. If yes then it could be the firewall. Uninstall you antivirus and check.

I took my Dell laptop to school and hooked up to the internet there. Now at home it will not pick up to my wireless internet and I cannot get online.


Check your wireless network connections. I believe most Dell's use a special utility. Look for anything wireless related on the bottom right hand of your lcd. Can you at least see the wireless networks? If not you might want to double-check to see if you accidently switched the wireless power switch off. It's usually located somewhere around the sides or the front of the laptop.

I have a wireless notebook adapter for my dell lattitude c400


Make sure that you insert the card in before booting up the computer. When Windows 2000 was created PCMCIA cards weren't hot swappable. If that doesn't do the trick, check linksys.com for updated Windows 2000 dirvers.

You can still update to Windows XP as well. Some computer stores still carry it. Wireless networking is managed much better under that operating system.
