Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My Optiplex GX280 just stopped connecting to the internet.

I purchased Cox Cable Highspeed and it worked perfectly for about two weeks, now I get a message that just says connecting. It just goes on and on. I have checked with Cox Cable and everything is working fine from their end. There just seems to be a problem with the Internet Explorer connection.

Try buying a cheap ethernet card so if it isnt that, that you dont wast any money. but remember when you do it remember to unplug all the cable from the computer.

My webmail failed to open successfully.What do i do now?


Check your internet connection and/or ethernet (CAT6 cable) in the back of your computer is correctly plugged in is a good start.

If thats not the problem and you have internet, try any of the following for your internet e-mails: GMAIL, AIM, MSN, or Yahoo are the most famous email carriers.

Hope this helps you this holiday!

You need a start-up CD and re-flash the Bios to Factory settings that worked. Best guess would be something was wrong with the BIOS package you had installed or someone/something messed up the installation which is causing your problem.

If you have factory CD Try to start the computer with that in.

Modem pro


Get High speed for the love of god.

No just kidding, i know, some of us cant afford it at home.

Most likely the phone number that the modem dials into may need to be updated for your service provider. If i remember correctly, you usualy have a list of numbers in the modem settings pick a different one.

You can also call the provider and they will help you.

I would recomend just paying the $40 a month for a cable modem and high speed and hooking straight to your network ( NIC ). Dial up is slow and you spend more time messing with dropped connections and slow speeds.

If your in an area that doesnt provide it, then i feel bad for you.

Good luck

for dial up simply a modem .... on laptops if you do not have a builtin modem you can purchase a pc-card modem that goes into your pcmcia slot ... for highspeed either a ethernet (same option as modem) but almost all modern laptops have a built in ethernet ... or usb ... also I highly recommend a router if you are going highspeed ... even if you only have one computer ... a router will protect your system because it provides a NAT firewall. If you go with a router make sure to set up the internet connection on the router do not tunnel through the router with a PPPoE connection
