Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

Browsers on Dell Inspiron E1505 won't bring up pages

Working on a friends Inspiron E1505 and have gotten the internet to work on like the Yahoo Messenger and when I went through Windows Media Player to download an update for that the internet worked, but when I try to access the internet via IE or Firefox I just gets stuck on Waiting for examplehere.com. Anyone know a good fix? Uninstalling and having the drivers reinstall fixed the internet for the messenger and stuff but the browsers still not cooperationg. Need an answer ASAP as have to give it back tomorrow. Much appreciated,

Joey K.

Using Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card Driver for Wireless and Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller driver for Ethernet. Have tried both.

    Well I changed my homepage to google and it still won't load (has been google from the beginning). So I don't really think its a plugin but I'll check that out, thanks. As for versions FF is 3.0.6(from the installation details). And IE I can't tell b/c when I go to help>about IE nothing happens.

    Have you updated the following plugins? Flash, Shockwave, Java. Try other websites that dont use any of these plugins such as Google. What versions of IE, Firefox and Windows are you using? Post back please...

Open a command prompt and type the following command:
netsh winsock reset

This works wonders on mysterious networking problems like the one you describe here.

Hope this helps.

My Dell E1505 won't allow me to go wireless. My


Ideally, see if we can isolate the issue.

Disable the built-in antenna.

Try connecting to the wireless via a USB wireless antenna. (hopefully you can borrow one).

If you can connect, then I would say you need to replace the built-in antenna. Or you could keep using the USB antenna.

Good luck

How do I know if my wireless card is working?


Go some where that you know there is an active and working Wireless Access Point. The closest Starbucks will show up as Att-Wifi and then when you go online you get the Att login page. The internet won't work unless you have a login. You could go to McDonalds now, since their wifi is free now.
