Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can't enable LAN or Wireless Ntwk Connections

We have a NEC Versa P7200 that was happily connecting wirelessly to our Netgear Router, then just stopped working for some reason.

Within the Network Connections window, the LAN connection advises that the network cable is unplugged, and the Wireless connection advises it's not connected.

I've tried; uninstalling/ re-installing both controllers, installing new drivers, re-formatting my hard drive with no luck

I'm at a loss as to why I can't connect and what I can try next.

    Forgot to mention that other PCs can connect to the Router, so not the Router.

Hello,
I believe that all you really had to do was just unplug the router for a few seconds then reboot it and try again to connect to it. I've a few routers that for no apparent reason just go off-line wirelessly and that would fix it. You also could just check it's settings to verify it is configured correctly before rebooting it.

Formatting your hard drive was a bit in the wrong direction and a needless process.

Good Luck

Router wont connect from the CD, all connections are correct


Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on yourcomputer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password
You can now change the admin password and configure the wireless settings.

My netgear wpn824 router is not connecting to the dsl router address 192.168.1.1 without connecting how can i configure my modem


You can bypass the Smart Wizard Configuration Assistant feature by typing
http://www.routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm
in the browser address bar. You may be prompted for a user name and password. The user name is admin and the default password is password. This will enable you to manually configure the wireless router even when it is in the factory default state. When manually configuring the router, you must complete the configuration by clicking Apply when finished entering your settings. If you do not do so, a browser on any computer connected to the router will automatically display the router's Configuration Assistant Welcome page rather than the browser's home page. In the Lan setup page, you have to use PPPoE, and type in the username and password from your DSL provider.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Netgear WGR814v2 does not see my ASUS 1005HA-P netbook, but the netbook sees the the Netgear wireless network but cannot connect .


To connect into your own Netgear router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Netgear WEB site to download this info.
To configure the Netgear router for wireless you need to connect a LAN cable from the laptop to the router and run your browser with the configuration IP address. for Netgear type the URL address ;-
http://192.168.0.1
the login = admin PW = password
Then configure the SSID and encryption, record this info so you can configure the wireless card with the same settings.

You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Netgear router without a wireless connection.

Netgear connection


is that wired connection or wireless? if it is wired, checked the cable and the port, make sure that the LAN connection is enabled.

if it is for wireless, checked the wireless settings of the router, enable the wireless card of the wireless computer and, verify the wireless settings of the netgear adapter and from there connect to it.
