Wireless radio switch


Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

If your dell has an antenna sticking out of the back, then you have wifi, otherwise I believe this model needs a wireless card. If you do have wifi, here's how to turn it on.

- click Start,
- choose Control Panel on the right
- If the top right says 'View by: Category'
click the down arrow on the right and choose either Large Icons
or Small Icons.
- choose Network and Sharing Center
- you will now see your wireless network if the adapter is on,
if it is not on, chick on Change Adapter Settings on top left
- two connections typically show up:
1. Local Area Connection and
2. Wireless Connection
- right click the Wireless Connection,
- choose Status

> the next window lets you Enable your wireless device, check its
Properties, or Diagnose connection issues.

Let me repeat from above:
Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

Just reverse this later if you want to go back to a wired connection on the desktop machine. I use all WIFI at home, then I connect my laptop by a cable to my router if I have an issue to solve, which is maybe once every two years.

It's easier when you are doing it than it may seem just reading this.

Hope this helps
All the best to you,

Even though it does not show the connection on your monitor, the connection may still be working. Did you post this problem from the same computer? If yes, then you are fine.

Local area connection: 'Local only'


Does your department use DHCP? (It will automatically update your computer's settings when connecting)

If so, I would go into your TCP/IP Properties and make sure its set to automatic as well.

If not, you need to go into your TCP/IP Properties and put in the IP Address, Subnet, Gateway, and DNS servers information.

Also try opening command prompt and doing IPCONFIG /RELEASE then do IPCONFIG /RENEW.

Lastly, sometimes you can right click on the connection icon by the clock and do a repair, that will do pretty much the same thing, but sometimes works.

the reason why you are experiencing this everytime both computers were powered on and tried to use an internet at a time is that you have a conflict IP ADDRESS. you may notice this opening the local area connection right click then click status(both computer) see if they have the same ip address. if that is the case you need to configue the lancard settings
