I bought my sister a Dell laptop that didn't have a dial up modem in it, never saw one that didn't have one. Dell sells a dial up modem that goes into the usb port for about $35, which I sent to her and it works. Basically it is just an external dial up modem. Give it a try, just call the dell help phone number.
can you connect using wireless? if so you need to go to the dell site and download the latest drivers for your ethernet card, you can also go to control panel>system>device manager, and see if the drivers are installed
there are none available. somehow its lost its ability to communicate with the driver ,more than likely from a virus that wuold be contained by a virus software update. save your files to a flash drive or disk and run the factory restore disks that came with you pc or run the image program from the hard drive. tutorial to both processes can be seen at the toshiba web site under support
attach your wireless router with modem then turn on the pc .. there is a pin whole at back of wireless router pin it in it would reset all of your setting . than go to internet explorer address bar type the IP 192.168.1.1 ususaly and the passward would be admin as well as user name .. then set the setting according to your requirment with out opposing IP ..than first turn of every thing computer modem router
then after 20 min first switch on the wireless router then modem and then your computer .. you will get connected through wireless router..
It should say Local Area Network and Wireless network (if your card is installed properly). Right click the Wireless Network and make sure it is enabled. Then click "View Available Wireless Networks" and choose your network.
If you are trying to setup a secure wireless network, that may be a completely different issue.
First, make sure that the drivers are properly installed and that there is no "splats" or exclamation marks in device manager for your wifi device.
If the drivers are properly installed, you should have an extra "network" icon in your system tray (by your clock). If so, you should be able to right-click on it and view network connections. It will pull up a window where both your LAN (wired) and wifi connections are. If you see your wifi listed, right-click on it and you should be able to enable it, thereby activating your light and your wireless.
If you don't have any of the above ....you need to re-download the drivers for your wifi and reinstall. That should fix you up :)
A few suggestions and questions to try to isolate the source of the problem:
1. Are you going through a wireless Access Point connected to a wired router, or are you just using a wireless router? Please post the exact makes/models of your wireless devices.
2. When the Internet access dies, can you at least ping the IP of the router and/or Access Point, or the IPs of any of the other computers on the internal network?
3. Check your system log files to see if Windows is recording any error messages related to the connection drops in those logs:
Open the Event Viewer utility in your Administrative Tools control panel.
In the Event Viewer, look through the System and
Application logs for entries flagged as "Warning" or "Error";
double-clicking on any of those entries will open a "details" window with more information about the error/warning. If you find any entries that seem to relate to network errors, post the full and exact contents given in the detail windows.
4. To determine if the problem lies specifically with your wireless connection or with your network software in general, connect the laptop to the router via an Ethernet cable and see if you still experience the problem.
