Try logging into the router by opening you web browser and in the address bar type 192.168.0.1 , if you are prompted for a username and password enter them and click ok (username usually "admin" password usually "root" if they havn't been changed.
Go to the wireless tab and see if it is displayed in there, if it isnt then make a new one and save it but by doing this all other devices connected to it will need the new key putting in but at least you can now connect your new laptop and surf away.

hope this helps :o)

I cannot get my new dell mini inspiron to connect to the linksys wireless router in the home network. it cannot even detect the network. How do I fix this?


Have you been able to connect your netbook to other wireless networks? Do you have anything else connected to your home wireless network? Can you see your home wireless network using a different computer?

If you can't see other wireless networks check to make sure your wireless card didn't get shut off. Usually there's an on/off switch on a laptop to do this, or a combination of function keys.

If you can see other wireless networks and just not your own, try the wireless network's settings on the router. If you do have some type of security, I'd start off troubleshooting with no security, then move up to WEP, then WPA, then WPA2 in that order, or at least as high as you can get with the options available on your router. It might be that your wireless network is too secure for what your Mini 10 can handle.

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.
