Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 PC Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless Internet Not an Option...

I have a Dell Inspiron 2200. A while ago, I ran into a problem booting that was solved by re-installing windows. I finally did that, however, I cannot connect to the internet. There used to be an option automatically where I could view the available networks and connect to one. I've tried pressing the appropriate Fn key with the wireless symbol on and off, but I see nothing. I have a wireless network in my household, but the problem is I cannot even see a list, and I'm not sure that my computer is acknowledging that I have wireless capablities (which I had no problem with when I purchased the laptop). What might be the problem? How could I solve it?

Possibly a bad wireless adapter in your laptop (wireless card) One way to check is to get an external LAN card that plugs into a USB port and see if that works. I had this same problem with a Compaq computer and this solved the problem for me... Good Luck

Unable to wirelessly connect anymore


Click on the network icon in the task bar. Show the networks available and right click on the wireless network if it shows up. Try the 'repair' network selection.
You can also 'remove' the wireless device and re-install it. If you use the command: "ipconfig /all" it will display all the connections and their settings. Normally windows will use the auto config 192.168.xx.xx series of IP addresses if it cannot find a DHCP server to issue it an address. That should show up in the ipconfig output in the wireless network device section.
If the ipconfig does not show the wireless device, try the uninstall/re-install tactic.
If this is a PC-card [PCMCIA] that you can physically remove, power down, remove the device, power back up. Power down again, install the card, power up. Windows might then 're-find' the device and reinstall all the necessary drivers.

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.

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
