Cant connect to my dell inspiron 8100


I think you should check the wireless settings of your router first.
If your wireless network is secured then make sure that you have the correct wireless network key WEP / WPA .
If your router is too old then it will be better to upgrade the firmware of your Linksys router.

I need to transfer data from an old and sickly Dell Insiron 8100 to a new 2010 external hard drive....no conforming ports....pls advise what I need to purchase...cable?....for transfer ...and either...


The first thing I would do is pull the hard drive from the sick Inspiron. Now get yourself an IDE/SATA to USB adapter from a computer retailer or on Ebay, they cost about 20 bucks. Attach the HDD from the Inspiron to the adapter and attach the usb side of the cable to a good computer. The computer will now read this drive as an external and allow to access any and all files. Just make sure that before you remove the HDD from the Inspiron, you remove any passwords on the computer that might limit your access to files. Also on the good computer go to control panel > Folder Options. Click on the boxes to allow viewing of system files etc. just for a little while, during the files copy. Make a folder on your desktop and name it whatever you want. Now go through the HDD from the Inspiron and copy any and all files to that folder. When you have finished, attach your new external. Now just copy the files from the folder on the desktop to the new external drive and there you go. These adapters are the only true way to be able to pull this off. Good luck

For starters, make sure the wireless adapter is turned on. Some laptops have an external switch. Also, look to see adapter is enabled in the Device Manager (control panel > system). If you do not see an device manager, you may need to reinstall driver for the adapter. All drivers that came with system can be found online at Dell's support website.

Want to get on internet with my lap top via wireless what card do i need for the inspirion 8100


first of all you need to check with your internet provider to see what modem you can use. a wirless 802.11g card (the farthest range) if your provider has a wirless modem i would get it from them. and a wirless modem/router. i use bellsouth wirless dsl and bought the equipment from them. if you have a wirless modem/ router already then you just need the card and configure it.

Can't connect using wirless internet with dell inspiron 2200


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.

I have a "Dell, Inspiron 8100" that is not wireless capable. I was wondering which external wireless card will make this computer able to receive and process a wireless signal.


For PCI adapters, I go with TrendNet. I would recommend a USB adapter though. They come in all shapes and sizes, but they all pretty much do the same thing. Here is a link to a ton of them:

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

NO INTERNET CONNECTION


Have you tried to reinstall the device driver? Then check the network settings and see if the device is loaded. If you still cannot get the device to work, unplug it and restart your computer. Once reloaded replug in your device and system will recognize the device and load the drivers if they are on system already, if not it will ask fir the driver cd to be loaded.
