Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

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

I have broadband with a wireless router but it wont connect without an ethernet cable, I cannot seem to find a wifi driver on the pc to enable me to use my wireless router


As you have mentioned that you have a desktop PC . So you need a wifi lan card to access the wireless router. Then you can access the internet through your wifi router. You can buy a wifi lan card for the same and go for Netgear GA311 for the same. Hopefully it will help you.

I need to hook up and start using a wireless router, can i get some help starting?


hi licking;
what type of wireless router are you using? a linksys? or a dlink?
do you have color coded cables?

try this:
from your modem(the box given to you by your isp), connect a cable from your modem LAN port to the WAN port of your wireless router.

If your going to connect a pc wired to your wireless router, you can connect a cable from your wireless router LAN port to your lan card of your PC.

give more details and ill be happy to help you. :)

Wireless connection to netgear Rangemax Wireless router, see's router but won't connect?


Check your router to see if the DHCP server is enabled. If not, then either enable that, or manually assign your wireless network card an IP etc.

Also check the router to see if it is set to have access restrictions like mac address filtering. Even with the right IP setup on your wireless card, you will still need to be authorised in the mac address list of the router to gain access.

If you don't have another computer there, or a lan cable to connect to the router, then do a reset to default and it should have most if not all of the security features off and the DHCP server on.

Wireless Router


If you clicked repair connection at anytime, you need to reset the router, by way of a reset button on the rear or front, go to your wired network card properties in control panel>network connections, click TCP/IP line, click properties again and select obtain ip address automatically. At this point you can run the setup wizard again if you wish using the rj45 cable You should set up the router using an RJ45 lan cable which comes with the unit and get into the routers settings by typing it's ip address in your web browser 192.168.0.1. Check that DHCP is set at enabled to give your pc's an automatic ip address. Check that wireless is also enabled and save any changed settings. Go to the properties of your pc's wireless adapter in control panel network connections and on its TCP/IP line check that obtain ip address automatically is ticked. when you have set up your wireless connection and the router is set up correctly, disconnect the rj45 cable and if neccassary dissable the wired network card so as the router looks for your wireless adapter and gives it an ip address. When a connection is found by your wireless connection you need to go into the router again and set up your wireless security, using whatever method you choose eg WEP or WPA PSK. You need to select the numbers and letters mixture pass phrase that you use for encyption and use the same numbers in the wireless adapter when it asks for the passkey no., you should then be able to connect again securely.
