Try installing the network driver which is in the CD supplied with the laptop. If this does not fix your problem, you will have to send the laptop to Dell for repair

Unidentfied network is connected, no internet access, i see a chair between the internet acces and the laptop. tried to reboot everything several times, turned off firewalls, nothing helps/


That unidentified network, have you connected to that before and browsed the internet? Just because you connect to a network, doesn't mean that network is setup to allow internet access. It could be a simple fact that you need to connect to a different network.

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.

Try linking your ethernet cable from your router to your notebook. If it allows you to connect via ethernet port, it definitly your wireless.

1st go into control panel, then Network and settings, then Manage wireless networks. Remove all other wireless networks on your computer apart from the one you are trying to connect to.

Once this is done, Go back to your control panel, Network and internet, then click connect to a network. Disconnect from the network you are connected to and then reconnect. This should solve your problem, please let me know how you get on and if you need any further assistance, please rate it this was of any help, thanks

Unable to connect to internet . wireless connection shows connected at 150 mphs, using repair function seems to hang up at acquiring network address


The wireless access point may have MAC address filtering turned on. This means, that only explicitly allowed network devices can fully connect. This is used to prevent unwanted guests in your network.
You must ask the administrator of the access point or router to add you to the allowed MAC address list. If it's your router, go to configuration and check if the MAC(physical) address allow/deny list is active.

Unable to get on the internet from my wireless connection


If you have a whitelist on your wireless router in your home, make sure that you are allowed on the list. What is happening is that you are correctly connecting to your wireless network, but your router is not allowing you to access the internet. The problem lies in your router, hopefully that should help.

Internet access with wireless


Hi,

Assuming that your laptop has a built-in WiFi Networking card (or even a USB or PCMCIA WiFi adapter), normally its a matter of setting your Network configuration to "Auto obtain IP address automatically". This could be done in your Control Panel/Networking Connections, right click on your wireless Networking, click on Properties, highlight Internet protocol (TCP/IP), click on the Properties button and tick "Obtain...".

In some instances you might need to key in the WEP or WPA security key if it has been enabled and set in your WiFi router, though it has been known to slow down connections. If on the otherhand the router has its MAC filter enabled, then you would need to add your laptop's WiFi MAC numbers to the list that the router would allow access to.

Should the above be not corrective of your concern, pls post back with the make & model of your router, laptop, and the WiFi adapter if external/add-on. Knowing your Operating System would also help.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
