Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

1 Answer

Dell inspiron 1525 says limited or no connectivity

My laptop internet connection was working perfectly fine. 3 days ago i lost internet connectivity. I repaired the connection, that didn't work so then i reentered the wifi password for the wireless connection I am using. It worked. Then about 10 minutes later I lost wireless connection. I tried repairing it and it will connect from time to time for a few minutes. As of right now it is no longer letting me use the internet. There is a red x over the wireless network connection and it will search for a connection but nothing will connect. When it is searching it says it has excellent connection, but then the red x will appear again. My boyfriend uses the same wireless connection on his laptop and it is working fine for him. I also connected to the wireless connection on my sprint hotspot and used the internet on there and it would connect. I have no idea what the issue is and I have a ton of homework and studying to do! Please help. I have not installed anything on my computer!

    May be the Wireless Module that is the problem; 1)http://www.getpartsonline.com/wm3945abg.... 2)http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/sy... You stated repaired connection, which leads me to believe you reinstalled the drivers. Dropped now leads me to believe the Wireless Module ('Wireless Card'), is bad.

Could be an issue with the router. Try resetting the router.

So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck

SOURCE: can't connect using wirless internet with dell inspiron 2200

There is no switch on an Inspiron 2200. I would go to Dell's website and download the drivers for your model # and then uninstall the existing adapter. then try installing the new driver and let me know what happens.

Make sure you are connecting to your own internet connection through your wireless router and not on your neighbor's.....limited connectivity means you are out of reach or signal is blocked....

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 1525 has been connected to

Sometimes when you boot up the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. If you have an wireless icon on the task bar with a red X on it then right click on this icon and click Repair, if not go to the Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on the wireless connection and Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue the wireless card with new IP address.
If this doesn't work check the Device Manager to see if the wireless card is enabled and functioning, if not reinstall the wireless driver and configure it to match the wireless router settings.

Please connect your computer directly to your DSL / Cable modem and check if your internet is working fine, if not turn off your modem and restart after a minute or two.

Now check again if the internet is working by directly connecting your laptop to your modem. if it is not working, contact ISP. if it is working, turn on your router and check if your wireless connection is working.

If you wireless connection is still not working, please check if you have plugged the modem to the internet / WAN port behind your router.

Also try logging to your router page (refer to manual for procedure) and try changing the wireless channel.

Verify that you have the correct type of authentication in wireless- if your router is set to WPA2, then you would have to go under the connection properties > security tab to change it to match that setup. If that does not work, then the issue may be that the wireless card is defective and starting to fail.

Dell inspiron 1525 laptop not detecting battery


Looks to me like the battery is bad, try another battery if you can and see if the laptop charges it. If it does then the battery is bad, if it doesn't then its something with the motherboard.
