Dell latitude E4300 wont connect to internet

Dell built laptop XPsp3
Connects to office LAN no problems
Try to connect at home with a tested broadband connection and nothing.
Have rebooted modem, rebooted machine. Checked IP settings on both a working home PC and the laptop - both set to auto DHCP and DNS.
Have tried right clicking the disconnected LAN icon and doing a repair connection. Fails to renew IP address.
IPCONFIG indicates a IP address of 169.n.n.n So its just not connecting to the internet to recieve a IP addy. If i replug the cable into the working home PC - bing - the connection connects straight away.

Any thoughts?

    I am unsure - I am trying to provide remote support for a user in Hong Kong from New Zealand and he has now left for the office. To make things even trickier there is no local Broadband connection at the hong kong office, so i can only try to test while he is at home and cant try from another connection but that one. :-)

Recently I purchased an Vostro 1310 for my mother as her Inspiron 1100 was dying; I installed all the drivers everything was peachy but frustratingly enoguh I could not connect to our home modem -

I alleviated this issue by taking it off obtain ip address automatically.

Then I put the following data in

IP 10.0.0.3
Subnet 255.255.255.0
Gateway 10.0.0.138

DNS preffered 10.0.0.138
Alternate Blank


I had to assign the laptop an IP as you can see and point it in the right direction which was to my modem. So all you need to do is find his modems default path and it should be sweet.

After I applied these changes it had no issues connecting - It might be a conflict of ip assigning on the network.

Before you rate get back to me if it didn't work - I want to help you solve this issue and get a Fix Ya! rating ;)

The setup disc for the router only needs to be run once when setting up the router to work with your internet provider and modem/router. You can try putting the disc in your desktop computer and reconfiguring the router.

Laptop wont connect to Di-614+


Since the Dell connects somewhere else, you know its wireless stuff is working. You may have signal issues at home, either low strength or interference. Try repositioning the router. Change its channel through the router setup page to see if that helps. Also be sure you have your security settings right in the laptop. This should get you going.

It's quite cool and fast as described, I used the Vodafone Mobile connect HSDPA and I can confirm the good performance.
One serious issue are the costs, as you pay for the downloaded MB once you exceed your free data limit,
Not sure if you want to use it privately, then you need to monitor the amount of downloaded data closely otherwise you will be poor very soon :-). Check at the Vodafone Home page the costs.

Toshiba NB 205 connects to router but not internet


The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.

Slow Internet Connect


i have the same router. I recommend that you download a new driver of your lan card for your desktop pc, also if you have P2P and bittorrent applications, try to disable them first and see the difference, those programs slow down the your internet, because they hog your bandwidth and connects to multiple users.
