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,

When i my pc on it show me generic host problem after this msg windows stop network services?anyone tel me


You may occasionally get an error message that reads "This connection has limited or no connectivity. You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources." It indicates that your PC is having a problem trying to access your network device to connect to the Internet. Very often, a bug that typically affects Windows XP Service Pack 2 causes this error message. This bug causes a loss of your network connectivity in workstations that use Microsoft's L2TP-based VPN (virtual private networking) client to connect to the NAT-based networks. You can fix the "Limited or No Connectivity" problem in a few steps. (If your connection works but you still get the error message, go to Section 2 to learn how to disable it.)

Review the following symptoms and determine if you experience any of them after you install the Windows XP Service Pack 2:

You get the error message "Limited or No Connectivity" when you attempt to connect to your network.

You have a problem connecting to your local area network or to the Internet.
You keep on receiving an error message: "Acquiring IP Address" message. If you experience these symptoms after installing Windows XP Service Pack 2, then this bug is causing the problem. In this case, go to Step 2; otherwise, skip to Section 3 Download the Microsoft patch (KB884020) from the Microsoft website. Run this update to install it. Create a registry fix by launching Notepad and typing: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\IPSec] "AssumeUDPEncapsulationContextOnSendRule\"=dword:00000002 Save the file as FixReg.reg to your desktop. Double-click the saved file to install it into your registry. Restart your computer and the error message will likely be gone. If you still see the error message, follow the steps in Section 2. b> If Your Connection Works But You Still Get the Error Message b> Navigate to the "Start" button and select the "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Network Connections" icon. Right-click the "Local Area Connection" icon and select "Properties" from the popup menu. Click on the "General" tab. Uncheck the option that is labeled "Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity." Click "OK." b> If the Patch Doesn't Fix the " Limited or No Connectivity" Problem b> Check your DSL router for any malfunctions. Re-configure or power cycle your router. Check your computer's network card configurations and network cabling to ensure that the problem does not lie here. Check your firewall to determine whether it is blocking you from connecting to the network or to the Internet. Disable the firewall and attempt connecting to the network or Internet while with the firewall is disabled. If the firewall is causing connection problems, then reset or uninstall and re-install the firewall. Reduce your connection speed to 10 Mbps and test this to determine if it fixes the problem. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel," "System" and "Device Manager." Review the properties of your network card. Click the "Advanced tab." Locate the "Link Speed and Duplex" section. Change the settings from "Auto Detect" to "10Mbps/Full Duplex." Hope this helps.

My toshiba laptop does not work on a lan. The icon


When you look at the Manage Network Connections link on the Network and Sharing Center you do not see
Local Area Connection?
Do you see Wireless Network connection?
You need to check the device manager to see if the card has been disabled.

It should show two entries with no red or yellow marks. One for wireless (WLAN) and one for wired (Ethernet)

Local Area Connection is Now Connected, BUT DC


You Say: " The lan cables are having no problem at all and also the modem and the router. There are no problems there at all. It's just troublesome whenever this box pops up"

If you want to disable this from popping up, just click the connection icon in "network connections" , "properties" , and unclick " Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity".

But I think you have a real issue causing this and I would go into the propertirs for your network adapter and remove EVERYTHING, reboot, and put it all back in. Make sure you look at all the properties under TCP/IP etc. and set it all back the same as it was.

This will essentially reinstall ALL your networking componants back to Brand Mew!

If you have problems after this, you have a stting wrong somewhere or a hardware issue.

GL!

Network Connections missing icon. Plus others problems.


XP tags "Local Area Connection #" with your Network Adapter. If you have a built-in LAN, it will take Local Area Conn 1" and when you disabled it and plugged in a new network adapter, it will be named Local Area Conn 2 and so on in that pattern. Your Local Area Connection will only be back when you plug the original Network adapter that XP tagged as Local Area Connection. It is not "variable" where you can choose how to name it.

You should make sure that you have administrative previlges to do this.

Some programs may have prevented the network service from being disabled.

This can also be caused by a virus too. So you also install and run a full system scan. Don't rely on a single antivirus. try different one if one doesn't solve the problem.

Some worms prevent the networked systems to be controlled by users of the administrative groups.

also remember that most of today's networks are equipped and monitored with network monotoring ultilities. some of these also acts as firewalls too. This may prevent you from disabling the local area connection.

If nothing works at all, just pull the network plug (RJ45). will disable the network connection. this way the appliaction that is using the connection is likely to display some error message. if this is a freindly application change the configuration settings of this application so that you could control the lan connections.
