Question about Dell Latitude D505 Notebook

Dell laptop internet connection problem

I purchased a used laptop and I am having problems getting it to connect to my wireless linksys.
The linksys is working correctly as there are 2 other computers linking up to it.
It appears to be something monked up with the laptop.
It’s a Dell Inspirion E1505.
I don’t even know where to begin as I am almost a computer dummy.
I have followed the “diagnose connection problems” and did a “repair” thing.
Sometimes it works momentarily, then loses connection and info says limited or no connection.
Someone please help!

    When I click on Wireless Network Connection (on the laptop with no connection), it says there are no wireless networks were found in range, so I can't get to the IP address. What else can I try?

Just had a new wireless card fitted and I am trying to connect to my router


I recently purchased a new wireless card for my desktop, it was a Linksys 54g with speedbooster but after the switch the networks I was connecting to (Free wireless from my apartments) will no longer connect. The old card that I had was just an offbrand card which used the microsoft zero connection tool to configure, this new card attemps to use the software included and ive tried to switch between the two different connection configuration tools both can detect the routers but when trying to connect it does not even get to the aquiring access key stage. the router is not passworded so I guess I was just wondering can this new card not connect to the router maybe due to brands? possibly the router is belkin or something of that sort and this linksys card cannot connect? I had before gotten it to connect at the very good 54kbps or whatever the number is but it would not let me access internet and then said limited/no connectivity. I also tried to change the settings on my wireless card and set them to 802.11b only, 54g auto, 54g LRS or Performance but all had the same result, I switched the default channel to match that of the router as well still nothing.

Dell Latitiude D 610 unable to connect to internet


When the network-cable from your computer is connected to the Cisco LinkSys router, click START -> RUN -> 'cmd'
and press ENTER.
Enter 'ipconfig' and press ENTER.
Look for a line like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.20.30.40

Open Internet Explorer, and enter: http://10.20.30.40
to connect to the web-server "inside" the Linksys router.
Enter the router's password (probably still 'admin'),
and you can then configure the "wireless" settings inside the router.

Once configured, you can disconnect the network-cable,
and start using the wireless-adapter _inside_ your computer.

Have you tried this: go to bottom task bar and right click on the PC icon. Select "View Available Wireless Networks". Find and select the wireless system you have, i.e., linksys, etc., and click on "connect".

If that doesn't work, use the same method to open the connection options, and click on "repair".

Lastly, if neither of the above works, try rebooting your linksys or whatever wireless system you have, and start over.

Can't get connected to the internet using my Gateway Laptop


If you are using windows xp then you need to go to control panel and click on the network and internet connection icon and run the setup wizard. Choose the "other" box when asked and then choose the "I already have a network but no internet connection" box and click next. And last just choose the last box on the bottom of the menu which says just finish the setup. Don't pick the ones that say make a floppy disk or whatever.

Connecting to internect


Hi Linda........
1. You can disconnect the Rj45 cable from the PC & connect
it directly to your notebook's Rj45 port. You should have access to the internet if a minute or two.
2. if you want access to both, Pc & notebook you'll need a wireless router. Like the link below. Click it.
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
You can find these types of wireless routers at places like Wallmart & Best Buy. They come in even smaller packages.
With the software that is included you'll be connected to the internet in no time. Linksys also provides security so someone near to your home can not tap your internet service & get a free ride. Linksys provides setup assistance from day one.
Hope this helps you Linda!
