Re: internet connection

Dear kandy

So you can't even ping a website, right?

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.

oke i have this post can help you

Dell latitude cp laptop how do you make it wireless for the internet

All laptops have inbuilt wireless network cards. You would need to have a wireless access point which has internet connectivity at your home or office. If available, you need to search for the wireless network and get connected. Some networks are secured so you would have to contact the administrator for the key.

My fiance is the the military! I sent him my old Dell latitude CP ... I forgot that it doesn't have a phone plug to connect to the Dial up on base. Is there a way to connect to the internet I don't...

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.

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.

that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.

Connecting a cpi to the internet ?

1) You can use a PCMCIA card (for example a Dell Fast Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX by 3Com) with a 'dongle' to connect to the ethernet cable via an existing card slot on the left side.

2) You can get a docking station set-up (i.e. Latitude 'C/Dock') which comes with the ethernet cable connection. ...pretty affordable used on the 'net.

3) If you has a wireless router you could hook a wireless USB adapter tp connect wireless to yout router.

Laptop internet

It's somewhat easy, somewhat complicated. Buying the wireless card is easy - you can buy one at any major electronics or computer store. What you need is a PCMCIA Wireless (802.11G) adapter. Most stores will have several models, any of them will be sufficient for surfing the internet. If you're not sure what features you want, just buy the cheapest one.

Here's the complicated part. You need to have an account with an internet service provider (such as Comcast, or Roadrunner, your local phone or cable company). You will also need a wireless router or wireless access point, which you will then connect to your cablemodem or DSL modem (however the internet service provider serves you the internet access). They will help you with the setup and installation.

If you only want to use it away from home, you can usually get a good signal in most major cities around businesses like coffee shops and things like Kinko's - although some businesses will require you to pay to use this service.

Wireless internet access assumes there is a wireless access point (WAP) nearby (usually less than 100 feet away for a good signal). Sometimes you can access your neighbors' wireless access points, but they are usually (and should be) secured against unknown access, or require a key. If you ask nicely they might let you use them.

Good luck, hope this helps!
