How can i get my ip address on my dell d610


depends on operating system, but an easy way to find your ip is to go to or click this link http://www.whatismyip.com/ this will tell your true ip as others equipment will see it

in any operating system you can go to command prompt. this can be found in programs /accessories /command prompt or by simply typing command prompt at start /search window when the black box comes up type in ipconfig all one word look for ipv4 connection this is your ip address. **note if this is a 192.68 address this in not your true address it is the address used to network your pc and a router or dsl modem for internet connectivity. Simply close the window when finished. Do not keep using command prompt without proper commands

in windows 2007
Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections click on active connection and then click details your ip will be the ipv4 address, but if you are going to a router you will recieve a 192.168 address this is not your true address but the address used to network your pc to router or dsl modem. if you have trouble finding network connections, In window 7 go to start click on 'help and support" type in whats my ip a box with answer will give you link to network connections and better directions.

hope this is helpful .......I usually just use the whats my ip link.....especially as most of us are now dynamic and our ip address changes regularly

Intrnet explorer not working


u should have told the problem more broadly.
because i don't know the type of error

Click the Refresh button, or try again later.

If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

To check your connection settings, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Connections tab, click Settings. The settings should match those provided by your local area network (LAN) administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).
See if your Internet connection settings are being detected. You can set Microsoft Windows to examine your network and automatically discover network connection settings (if your network administrator has enabled this setting).
Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.
Select Automatically detect settings, and then click OK.
Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine what strength security you have installed.
If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.
Click the Back button to try another link.

Cannot find server or DNS Error.
C:\WINDOWS\system\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm

Whenever u get this it's almost always an IP address problem. Try renewing your ip address.
1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
2. Click Run... on this menu.
3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.
4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).

See it this doesn't fix your problem.

Can't connect to internet


hi

check the IP settings, DNS server Settings etc any required, as well also do check if the network cable is propery conected and is working on an other system

if the router is connected to a modem then then connection from the modem is generally connected to the port named INTERNET in that case try connecting that to one of the ports numbered 1 to 4 and connect the systems to other ports

cheers
pls rate if it was any help

Cant connect to the internet.


Click on Start and type CMD. Open CMD and type ipconfig. Check out the IP address V4 for the Local area ethernet adapter or wireless area adpater depending on wireless or wired connection. Any ip address other than of the class 169.254.x.x shoud be considered good. If you have an IP address is any other number other than the above you have a good IP address. to test the internet connectivity type PING www.google.com. If the results are Packets sent 4 Recieved 4 Lost 0 then the issue could be due to Internet Explorer bing corrupt or a firewall blocking the internet access. Power off the computer. Power on the system and as soon as you see the Dell logo please tap the F8 button 3 - 4 times. You'll get to teh Advanced Windows boot option screen. Select safe mode with networking and see if the internet works in the safe mode. If yes then it could be the firewall. Uninstall you antivirus and check.

IP addresses work but URL don't


Hi,

you didn't mention which version of windows are using so i am going to assume that you have windows XP if that is not the case then let me and i can provide you with an alternate solution.

1. click on the start button
2. click on run
3. type ncpa.cpl
4. right-click on local area connection(if using ethernet cable)
5. single-left-click on internet protocol (tcp/ip)
6. click on properties
7. click on set dns servers manually instead of obtaining automatically
8. enter 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 as the primary and secondary servers.
9. restart the computer

if it still doesn't work
1. click on the start button
2. click on run
3. type cmd
4. click ok
5. type nslookup www.google.com
6. hit enter

and reply with the results.

No connectivty to internet


Your problem is very indicative of an assigned ip address to your wireless card. Assuming you have windows xp as your operating system. Go to start, run, type in CMD, once the dos screen appears type ipconfig and look to see what your assigned ip address is.

Wont let me type in internet addresses- only accepts numbers


My best guess with the limited info given is that your settings on your computer are somehow not right. My best guess is your IP address is not correct. When you right click on my network places and go to properties you should see a list of connections. Double click on the one you believe is your internet. Click on the support tab and at the top it should say next to address type "assigned by dhcp" not "manually assigned". Hope this helps.
