Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Network Connection Issue

I was using my desktop PC (Windows XP) and the internet today with no problem, and then suddenly I had no connection. I have DSL service, and a 2wire modem which is working fine and all lights are showing green. In fact, my mac laptop is wirelessly connected to the modem, and it still has an internet connection. Please note, the desktop is hardwired to the 2wire modem. To troubleshoot the PC, I went to Control Panel to Network Connections where two options were displayed: 1) Dial-up - which was listed as disconnected, firewalled, standard modem. 2) LAN or High Speed Internet - Hamachi which was listed as connected, firewalled, Hamachi Network Interface. Then via Control Panel, System, Hardware to Device Manager, I looked at Network Adaptor which has two sublistings: 1) this one had an icon of a yellow circle with a black "!" next to Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller. 2) Hamachi Network Interface. AT&T Tech Support could not offer support but did say they believed it was a network adaptor issue. If anyone could help me resolve this issue and re-establish a connection I would really appreciate it. Thank you

SOURCE: Dell Optiplex 745 desktop will not connect to internet

Most desktops need to be connected with a wire to your network because most desktop computers do not come with a wireless NIC (network interface card). If you are not sure if yours has one you can get your service tag off of your computer and type it in the Dell website (link below) under drivers and downloads and look at the original configuration for your system. If you have a Wireless NIC card in your desktop it should connect just like your laptop computers did. If not you may have a defective wireless card.

SOURCE: Can't install wireless network adaptor on

Your machine was difficult to track down. As far as I can tell, the 5260 is the Intel motherboard. Below is a link to a page where you can individually download the drivers you require. Best of luck!

How to update drivers for xp


Official support has gone by the wayside for Windows XP. If you have a working internet connection on the computer you should be able to update most things with Windows Update. If you are having trouble getting a specific driver you can download it directly from the link below.

If you are having trouble getting an internet connection on the machine, consider downloading the "Network Drivers" and move them to the computer using a USB Flash Drive.

DOESN'T DETECT WIFI


The wireless feature on a Gateway computer allows you to connect to a network without the hassle of cables. This allows you to browse the Internet conveniently wherever you are. Gateway computers rely on Windows operating systems, which come with a built-in feature to manage your wireless connection. This feature makes turning off your wireless connection an easy process if, for a moment, you prefer to connect to the Internet using a wired connection.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and click the "Control Panel." Click Network and Internet Connections > Network Connection, if you are using a Windows XP Gateway computer. You should see your wireless connection. For Windows Vista and 7 Gateway computers, click "Network and Sharing Center" from the Control Panel and click "Manage Wireless Connections." You should see your wireless connection. Right-click your wireless connection and click "Disable" to turn it off. Close "Network Connections" when you are done.

I am using windows XP in my Toshiba laptop sattellie Series. I am unable to make any new connection to connect to Internet.


That is because the L300 does not support XP.
If you reinstall Vista, all will be well again.
XP is no longer supported even by Microsoft as it is over 10 years old and now obsolete.
Hope that helps.
