Wireless connection I have installed a new modem for wireless connection, but my lap top doesn't seem to find a wireless network in range. Does my Dell Inspiron 5100 support wireless connection? Does it have the appropriate card?

    Yes, the Dell has a wireless G/B card.

    Is it turned on (switch on the outside of the case)?

    What modem and router are you using?

I want to connect my wireless to my lap top thank you


It seems the Dynalink Analog Modem doen't support wi-fi. You'll need both a wireless router/modem and a wireless network card in order to be able to connect using a wireless signal.

Yes, your laptop PC will work fine. Normally you need to be sure the laptop is on the same network as the router and connect to its Ethernet (LAN) port via the built in wired network adapter on your laptop to configure.

Dell Inspiron 8600 Wireless connection driver Problem


I would check network connections in your control panel first and make sure your wireless connection is enabled. Next I would go to System in control panel and then go to device manager and check to see if the drive for the wireless is installed. May want to try here for the Driver download.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

Configure Modem Echolife HG520s With WRT54G OR WRE54G


Not sure if I understand properly but your router should have a WAN port or an "Internet" port

your modem should be connected to it and your PC should be on any of the LAN port

Trying to connect desk top computer and lap top computer


There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud

3d reach card


If there is a wireless g or b network within range you should be able to connected to it provided the wireless network is either open or you have the WEP or WPA key. By "within range" we are basically talking about the same building.

Wireless laptop


To use wireless conection you need a Wireless Access Point i.e. wirless router. Then you can connect your laptop to this router and use internet. But if you have modem in your lap (generally all laps are coming with modem now) you should direct attach the phone line to your lap. In this case you need a dial-up no which you can ask your ISP.

If any problem just Ask me
