Question about Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer

1 Answer

My dell 531s wont connect to internet

My dell 531s desktop will not connect to the internet anymore. I live on a college campus and use their ethernet connection. It had been working just fine, until I came back one weekend, and it just won't connect. the green light is still flashing where the ethernet cord plugs into the modem, and we tried the cord with another computer, and the cord worked fine. All students had to install cisco clean access agent at the beginning of the year... I don't know if this has anything to do with my connectivity. like I said, it had been working fine, but now it wont connect. thanks for any help.

I want to connect the netsurfer laptop using the internet wireless of ukzn (howard college) campus but it doesn't go through what coulf be the problem


Hi there,

It could be that the college WLAN (Wireless network) has some proxy settings. If you are from the same college you can try going to the IT support of your campus so they can configure your computer to be able to connect to the network.

Cant get on the internet


The longer the cable, the slower the connection.

It should work with the cable as it is not "too" long.

I would try turning the modem and router off for one minute and then turning back on.

Ah, you can no longer use the modem or the Blitzz screen to connect to your Internet connection. You'll need to patch another Ethernet cord from the router to your Ethernet port on your computer and it should automatically connect. If you still get prompted to dial, open up Internet Explorer and ignore any prompts to dial and then click Tools, then Internet Options, then click the Connections tab at the top, then click the selection to Never Dial a Connection. Confirm your choice by clicking OK and then try browsing the Internet like usual.

Internet connection


For x5, you will need either cf wifi card or sd wifi card. If wifi network hotspot is free and internet access is allowed (check with your college's network administrator for information), all you need is be in the range, turn the wifi on and connect to it (there maybe several security settings you have to do on the axim and these can also be obtained from network admin). For paid hotspot, you will be redirected to enter username and password when you ty to access internet.
