    you need to open control panels network connections

    right click your internet icon

    if you see enable then click if you do not see enable then click repair

    your probably just losing connection you don't need to restart to get it back you can right click your icon in taskbar then wireless connection when page appears if you see a connection high light then click connect.

    If you see none then at left side of same page click refresh network you may need to do this a few times but once a connection shows high light then connect

    But do the steps above for repair this may solve the problem

    you may be picking up multiple wireless connections sometimes a repair helps

Things you can do to try and improve the connectivity are:
1. Update the system BIOS to the latest version
2. Update the wireless driver to the latest version (Both are available at support.dell.com)
3. Try a different channel for wireless on your router (Most default to channel 6, so try 1 or 11)

No Internet


You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.

YOu can try system restore, think of the possible time where your computer was working properly without hussel then that will be your restoration point, or better try to back up your files and do tjhe factory image . Since this is a DELL computer pressing CTRL+F11 will do the factory default setting of your system that is why it's highly recomended to back-up files first before doing this.

Inspiron 6400 detects networks but does not connect to internet


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....
