Question about Dell TrueMobile 1184 Wireless Broadband Router (802.11b) 9U555 (9U555)

1 Answer

Problem maintaining wireless signal

I have a Dell TrueMobile 1184 Wireless Router and recently got a new Dell laptop with a Dell wireless 1395 Mini-card. The wireless network works fine for my old laptop and my husbands laptop (both also made by Dell). When I first tried to connect to the home wireless network, I was unable to see it even when sitting right next to the router. I reset the router and reinstalled it on our home desktop and downloaded the new drivers for the wireless card on my laptop. I can now see the network and connect briefly, but I loose the connection almost immediately (I managed to keep the connection long enough on one attempt to open an internet browser and migrate away from my homepage, but otherwise it drops the connection as soon as it connects). The wireless card in my computer works fine on both the wireless network at work and when conecting to my neighbors unsecured network. I have tried using both the Windows XP software and the wireless card utility software to make the connection (disabling the other each time) and in both cases I cannot get a stabile connection. I plan to try switiching the broadcast channel tonight and would be grateful for any other suggestions.

    changing the channel did fix the problem... however it took several different channels to find one that I could see and could stably connect to.

Iphone doesn't work with router Dell 1184 broadband router in my house works with windows laptops but not Apple iPhone or iTouch. I have had the router/software installed for 5 years, is there new software...


you said the laptop is connected to the network.
when you try to connect to the wireless network on the i-touch or i-phone, do you see your network.
if your network is secured then you must enter the correct password for the wireless. If you are not sure about the wireless key or the password then you will need to open the router set up page and check the wireless settings.
you can also try to upgrade the firmware ( software) of the router.

Computer connects to router but not to the internet


This seems to me at first look to be a problem with your ISP not accepting the credentials for your connection. I presume you tried restarting everything after resetting the router, but resetting it has erased your ISP login and password.

Setting passwords on dell truemobile wireless router


Hello, The default address for the dell truemobile 1184 is 192.168.2.1 If you have changed it and forgot, unplug the router (elec) for 5 seconds. This will reset it to default. The default SSID is "wireless". If a user ID and/or password is asked for enter "admin". Here you can change settings, enable broadcast, change SSID, enable WEP or WPA. Hope this helps.

Wireless device disappeared with Windows Vista installation


Unfortunately, you have mentioned the router, which is no longer supported on the Dell site, but not the network card you are trying to use, please advise so as we can try for a driver. I assume you have tried installing the XP driver, as sometimes this may or may not work.
