Question about Computers & Internet
I TURN IT ON AND IT SAYS WINDOWS PRODUCT ACTIVATION SO I DO THAT TO REGISTER THEN SAYS CONFIG NETWORK SETT I PUT IT ON AUTO SAYS UNABLE TO ESTABLISH A CONNECTION RETRY NOJOY THEN IT GOES BACK TO WIND PROD ACTIVATION I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO TO IT
Windows will slowly stop functioning if it was never activated till all you get is the mandatory activation screen. The problem you have besides the the activation is that your network card is not connecting to internet. You no longer can get into Windows to remedy the problem, because of the activation screen. Catch 22!
If this is true, you only option is to wipe and re-install Windows.

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.

Does it pickup any wireless connections? Try updating the wireless drivers. the best way to fix this would be to test the card on a different laptop. If it works on a different laptop, your laptop will need to be weeped.

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....

For some reason known only to Dell, the default setting for the Inspiron 6000 built-in wireless network adapter is 'off' or 'disabled.'
If you used Dell's restore disk to reinstall XP, the radio button is turned off. Go to control panel/system/device manager, find the wireless LAN device, right-click on it and choose 'Properties.' Under 'Wireless radio' check 'on' or 'enabled.'
Go back to Windows network setup wizard and go back through the steps using the 'restore network connection' button. You should be good to go.
There's an EXCELLENT network manager from Cisco named 'Network Magic' that takes all the guesswork out of setting up your internet connection. I highly recommend it. They offer a free trial and I think may even have a 'Lite' version that helps with simple connections without the bells and whistles of the full blown program. I'm not sure about that, but I can't tell you how much time it's saved me troubleshooting and setting up networks for my clients.
