Maybe the cable is broken? You should try another cable.
If thant won't work, maybe your router block the traffic between the router and the pc. But it is a bit difficult to explain that. When you tried anoter cable and it still doesnt you, you can send me an email with the details of the router (brand, type etc.)
When you reformatted your HD, did you use IBM's method which utilizes a hidden partition? This results in a laptop which appears to be as if it just came from the store, like a brand new laptop.
This method sets up the computer in the exact way that IBM built it. And puts all devices in their proper configurations.
If you have not done too much yet, you might want to try that method right away and see if it doesn't make a big difference in the way your laptop works.
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.
You forgot to mentioned the kind of what brand of wireless router you have. first you have to activate or properly setup the wireless router. the factory default ip address is 192.168.1.1 Go to web browser even it will say fail to connect to server. type in 192.168.1.1 to the address bar. the default user id admin and the password is password. wireless basic setup is the first one, next is the wireless setting. Since I have no clue what kind or brand you have there is a setting for b,g,n most likely your laptop is a g signal. if the router is set for n signal your laptop will not connect. make sure to set to b,g,n setting and this will work. your laptop will connect to the internet. oh I forgot to mention to set for wep key or passphrase. then input the to your laptop to connect. I hfope this will help you solve the problem.
Right click on the wireless LAN and then click Repair. Do this in the Control Panel - Network Connections. This will force the wireless LAN card to get a new TCP/IP address from your wireless router.
When you get this Limited connectivity message do a repair - this is a common problem - the wireless connection icon is also on your Task Bar, you can right click in it to do a repair.
you cant connect to network if the network is using g band and you comuter is using only 802.11 a/b.. try to review the specification of your computer if WLAN is 802.11 a or b or g or a/b/g.. etc. your computer can only detect WLAN depends on its specs.
