    Any ideas.

    Both my wireless and ethernet connections do not work. This occured after a power surge. Could it be possible that both connectors were fried or could they have lost their driver information?

Check that if there is Static ip configured on your Lan-Card...

if yes.. then you need to configure the IP addresses manually for W-LAN as well.


One more thing; if Lan-card is not configured with static IP then

make sure your W-lan IP seting is on "obtain Ip automatically"


Here is the way to do this....


Click on the start orb to open a list of programs and content. The start menu has been replaced by the “start orb” which still gives you the same functionality as the start button from previous OS versions, but consumes less screen real estate.
Right click on “Network” and go to properties. That opens the “Network and Sharing Center” which is your central office for anything pertaining to (just as it says) networking or sharing resources.
On the left hand column you want to click on “Manage Network Connections.”

This opens the Network Connections Window which you will find familiar to Windows 2000/XP. It will list all of your NICs or Wireless Connections.
Right click and go to properties of the connection you would like to statically assign. You will now be prompted for an administrative password. This is part of Microsoft’s new User Account Control (UAC) which will help unauthorized changes to your systems.
Once you have authenticated you will see the properties of the selected network connection.

The properties screen is very similar to what you’ve seen in the past, but one thing you will likely notice is by default Windows Vista supports IPv6. If you’re on a corporate or government network that is running IPv6 you can fill in your IP information there.
Otherwise, you will select Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) and click properties. Now you will be able to Choose the option "Obtain Ip adress automaticlay"

Close the Network Connections Window


Let me know if this helps.. Good luck...

regards,

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
  1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
  2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
  3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
  4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
  5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
  6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
  7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

Dell inspiron 1525 not connecting to internet


Hi,

I am one of the Dell Certified System Expert.

For internet connection, there are two ways to connect to the internet. One is through wired connection (connecting LAN cable) and connecting to wireless connection (through wireless router or through wireless Modem WLAN).

For wireless check the switch located on the left side of the portable after switching check the status light located at the front left of the computer.

check the driver if it is properly installed meaning no bang(!) or question mark(?) for both ethernet (LAN port) and Wireless Device.

To check the driver go to control panel then device manager. Check the network and you should be seeing the ethernet and wireless device. If not installed use the driver cd that came with the computer.

How to check the internet connection.
For Wired connection:
First check the cable, check the LAN port in the computer there should be blinking lights, if none try to reseat the cable. Check the ipaddress of the computer and the default gateway.

This is the instruction to get the IP address and default gateway.

For windows xp
1. Click start, then choose run then on the box type CMD then click ok.
2. on the black screen type ipconfig. get the ip address and default gateway.
3. normally it will give you 192.168.XXX.XXX
4. try to type ping 192.168.XXX.XXX (this should be the gateway)
5. If you receive replies, then you are connected to the router/modem
6. then try to ping www.yahoo.com
7. if still reply then you are connected to the internet already, might be your issue is browser or security on the computer.

For vista and Windows 7
click windows then in the start search type cmd, you should be seeing cmd on the top, right click then choose run as administrator. then follow steps 2-7 above.

For wireless connection
Check the switch, and the status light, if all are checked checked the ip address and default gateway as well, the instruction is the same above.

For more information about setting up your system please refer to the link.

How do i get my netbook to connect to the internet/ what wireless device can I get to make it work


You need to have an active internet connection with a wireless gateway to connect to the "net" wirelessly. You also need to have a wireless device installed in your laptop. The device in your laptop usually has a switch to turn it off and on. This switch maybe on the side of the laptop or may be on one of the keyboard function keys, either way, the wireless support lamp should be on or green for the wireless system to work on the laptop.
If you do not have an active wireless internet connection, you cannot connect to the net although you should be able to connect to a unsecured wireless network which is in range of your laptop ( like in a shopping centre).
If your laptop does not have a wireless device fitted, visit your local computer shop to ask what they have available and at what cost.

I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet either wirelessly or hard-wired. I have two other laptops, connected wirelessly, and a desktop connected via hardwire. It recognizes the router but says...


if you are trying through wireless, first unplug the wire from the laptop,

make sure that the wireless switch on your laptop is turned on.

click on start, control panel, network connections/network & internet/ Network and sharing center..

right click on wireless network connection Icon, if it says disable, it means it is enabled already.

then click on status..

from here the steps would differ from OS to OS

then click on Support tab (for XP)
check the address type, it should be "Assigned by DHCP"
and if you see the IP Address starts with 169., it is a bad IP and needs to disable the connection and enable it.

if the connection type is "Assigned Manually, right click on wireless network connection icon and click on properties and click Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on properties, in this window, check the option "Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP"

click ok and OK ..

again right click on the wireless network connection icon and click on view available networks... click on your router name and click on connect..

now check the functionality.

if you are using windows 7 or vista,

click on status, click on details for the IP Address..

We see DHCP Enabled as YES or NO instead of "Adress type"in XP

if it says no, it means it is assigned manually. to change to DHCP , right click on Wireless Icon, select properties, click on IPV4 IP address and click properties, then select obtain automatic..

then try again..

hope this works,

Wireless in Mexico


Wireless connectivity is the same everywhere in the world. The biggest problem you are likely to run into in Mexico is finding a wireless signal to connect to. The better hotels should have internet connections, but Mexico is not "wired" like the USA is.

Your laptop should be able to connect to any unsecured wireless signal anywhere. I suggest you try taking it with you next time you go downtown in your area, and experiment with finding wireless signals. College campuses are a great place to find wireless, as well as having lots of students who are used to connecting to wireless all over town, who might be willing to help you connect.

The icon you need to use to find a wireless signal can be found in the little bar next to your digital clock, in the lower right corner of your screen.
