Wireless router radio button disabled

Hi: this laptop was a gift. It's a Dell, inspiron 1300. When I try to go wireless, it says the radio button is disabled. I try to click the enable but it says there is a switch. I've looked everywhere and there is not a switch. Can you help?

    Thanks so much for the help. The radio is now on, but I am still unable to go wireless because ? There is a padlock next to the the the computer when showing who's listed. How do I go in change/edit or remove and add a new connection? What is the key and where do I get one? I used to think I was smart, but this seems beyond me!

On dell inspirons it isn't a switch, but there should be a button on the keyboard in blue. You need to hold down the blue Fn button, then hit the button on the keyboard that has a wireless icon in blue. Usually it is Fn+F2.

NEED HELP TO SETUP MY TRUEMOBILE 2300 ROUTER TO MY DELL LATITUDE D600 LAPTOP. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET WIRELESS CONNECTION. WHAT I DO HAVE , 1300 TRUEMOBILE PC CARD PLUG IN. WHAT I DON'T HAVE IS A...


The Network Key you're probably asking for is on a sticker located, underneath the router. Can you check?

Here's a way to configure your router for your existing network (assuming you already have one) :

If you have an existing network, chances are you have already configured network services on the network. In this case, you would use the router as a pure Access Point to extend the range of your network by allowing more attachment of wireless and wired computers. You MUST also turn off the DHCP server on the router if there is a DHCP server running to avoid IP address conflict.

To configure the router as an Access Point with the DHCP server disabled:

  1. Open your web browser and go to http://my.router, (or the default address http://192.168.2.1.)

  2. Click the Basic Settings tab on the top navigation bar.

  3. Select Access Point Mode.

  4. Click the Next button.

  5. Click OK to dismiss the DHCP disabled message box (The DHCP server will be disabled in Access Point Mode by default).

  6. Click the Advanced Settings tab on the top navigation bar.

  7. Click the Advanced IP Settings tab on the left navigation bar.

  8. Assign an IP address to the Wireless Broadband Router.

    note.gif NOTE: The IP address should be reserved by the DHCP server. The Wireless Broadband Router cannot act as a DHCP client, therefore, it needs a static IP address for its LAN interface.

  9. Click the Submit button.

  10. Click the Save & Restart button.

  11. Note the status bar at the bottom of the screen.

  12. While the Wireless Broadband Router resets, the Power light on the front of the unit blinks.

  13. When your web browser returns to the main page of the Wireless Broadband Route, the device has successfully restarted with the new settings.
    note.gif NOTE: The main page may not return if you have changed IP address of the router in Step 8. To view the main page, type the new IP address of the router in the web browser to access it.



  14. Plug an Ethernet cable from the existing local network into any LAN port on the Wireless Broadband Router.

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..

Setting up and configuring networks


The main problem on your setup is your router. This BEFSR41 doesn't have wi-fi or wireless capability. You can only go online on your laptop if you connect it hardwired to the router just like your desktop. You must purchase a wireless router if you want your laptop to work wirelessly

Wireless radio disabled


If you have a laptop and it has built in wireless adapter, it may have a switch or a button that you need to switch on in to turn on the wireless connection radio. Usually, it can be found on the sides or on the front panel of the laptop. On other laptops, you will need to hit some combination of keys on the laptop's keyboard to turn on the wireless connection radio, for example, Fn+F5. Please refer to the manual of your laptop for reference on how to turn on or enable its wireless radio.

By the way, what is the model of your laptop?

Netgear Router WGR614 will not connect to internet


Hi,
Looks like when you reset the router you have lost all yur configuration and back to the default factory settings.

Bridge the 5100 first.
1. In your web browser browse to »192.168.0.1 This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.

2. The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.

3. Select Advanced from the blue buttons on the left.

4. Click the PPP locations button.

5. The modem may ask your for the Modem Access Code again. If so type it in again and click continue.

6. Select the radio button labeled, "Bridged Mode (PPPoE is not used)"

7. Click Save Changes.

8. A "PPP Location Warning" page will come up. Click "Change PPP Location."

9. A "Restart Needed" page will come up. Click "Restart"

10. Reboot your computer and and then connect the router

11.Configure the router for PPPoE using your ISP uid/pass

12.Configure your wireless using WEP

13.Desktop : Using Dell wireless client configure the client using the same SSID ,wep as configured in the router
Laptop : follow the same as desktop

(by default dell wirelesss client takes over the wireless configuration in dell pc.to disable it and use windows wireless client..control panel ->administrative tools -> services -> enabl2 wireless zero configuration)

14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seg..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop

Cheers !!!
