Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Can't obtain an IP address

I thought at first it was a virus that hit our windows 2000 systems that caused them to not be able to access the network or internet. We ran Avast boot scans and it deleted several viruses the first time, then we reran it a second time to make sure it got everything and it found nothing the second time.
Two system does some times they will connect, sometimes they wont. Now an XP machine is doing the same thing and we can not be running into these issues this frequently.
I ran ipconfig and I am getting a 169.254.xxx.xxx that will appear as an ip address and a sub mask of 255.255.0.0. The working systems get ips of 74.124.255.xxx and sub masks of 255.255.255.128 and they fill in the default gateway. I have tried everything I can think of to fix them and there are no viruses left.

Before you start configuring the WRE54G you need to consider the following...


Before you start configuring the WRE54G you need to consider the following factors:

1. Make sure that there are no wireless security enabled on the router like WEP and wireless MAC filtering. If you have them enabled try to disable them first. Check if there is a wireless computer that is currently working on your network.
2. Make sure that the SSID broadcast is enabled.
3. Then Hit the Automatic Configuration button on the WRE54G for about 3-5 secs.

The wireless computer should be connected to the SSID of the Range expander.
The range expander doesn’t have any DHCP server. The IP address that will be assigned to the computer will be 0.0.0.0 or the Auto-configuration IP 169.254.xxx.xxx.
Assign a static IP address on the wireless card. IP address should be 192.168.1.5, Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1
To assign static IP address on your machine you follow the steps below:
Windows 9 xs and ME:

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network > Highlight the TCP/IP of the Wireless LAN card you’re using > Properties
Under IP Address TAB:
Specify an IP address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Click the GATEWAY TAB:
Under New Gateway: Enter 192.168.1.1 then click on Add.
Then Hit Ok All the way out… hit yes if it’ll ask you to restart

Windows XP and 2000
Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click Local Area Network Connection that you are using > Properties > Internet Protocol TCP/IP > Properties > Use the following IP address:
IP Address: 192.168.1.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Then click ok all the way out.
Try to ping the Range expander. Go to start and then run type CMD for Win XP/2000, COMMAND for Win ME and below. On the black screen that will pop-up type PING 192.168.1.240 (Default IP address of the Range expander.
If the ping test was successful then you can access the setup page of the Range expander. If not, try to reset the Range expander for 10 seconds and then power cycle it.
To reset the range expander, follow the steps below:
Hold down the reset button for 10 seconds then unplug power while holding down reset...plug it back in after 5 seconds then wait for 10 more seconds before releasing the reset button.
To access the setup page of the expander, Open your Internet Explorer and please go to http://192.168.1.240
If will prompt a username and password box, leave the username blank password is admin.
On the setup screen of the expander, you can set the same exact settings on your router. SSID, Channel, WEP settings should be the same on the router and you need to specify the WLAN MAC Address of your router to the space provided for the WLAN MAC address on the setup page of the Range Expander.
Once you applied the settings, the lights on the expander should be both blue.
You can now set your IP address back to obtain an IP automatically and Obtain DNS address automatically.
Range expander should be working after performing the troubleshooting steps above.

If you have an Ethernet port on the WRE54G, try to connect the range expander directly to your computer with static IP address then ping the WRE54G. Make sure that you are not running any firewall and Internet security in your computer. If you were able to ping the 192.168.1.240 try to access it through the Internet Explorer and configure it from the there. Follow the steps that I gave to you to configure the wireless settings of the range expander.

Make sure that you have checked all the wireless security settings on your router. Make sure that you have those disabled. Try to set static IP address in your computer and try to ping the 192.168.1.240 and see if you can get a reply.

WIRELESS CONNECTION ISN'T WORKING, CAN ONLY ACCESS USING WIRE


Assuming you have Windows XP, let's check some settings for the network connections. Click on "start" - "settings" - "control panel" - "network connections".
First we'll check the ethernet connection. Right click on "local area connection" - "properties" - choose "Internet protocol (TCP/IP)" - "properties". In case of not at automatically settings, click on both buttons to "obtain an IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically". Your screen has to be like this:
1c9a0fd.jpg
Click on OK at both windows.
Now we'll check the Wi-fi connection. Right click on "Wireless connection" - "properties" - choose "Internet protocol (TCP/IP)" - "properties". In case of not at automatically settings click on both buttons to "obtain an IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically".
Click on OK at both windows.
Now that we are sure that the settings are right lets see our connections.Connect your laptop with ethernet cable at the router and after the connection has been established, hit start - run - type cmd. at the new black window type ipconfig and hit enter. You will get the results for both ethernet and wireless connections. Mark with your mouse the details report and hit enter (for copying the results). Come back to this post and paste these results. I want to take a closer view of what is missing from your Wi-Fi connection.
I'll post you back details to do, when I see your report.

How to check if you are connected to a usable network..


On any Windows device there is a set of protocols called TCP/IP.
When your device connects to a network, it attempts to obtain a TCP/IP network address that means it can connect to other devices on the network, or the Internet.
If it CANNOT obtain an address, you cannot do anything at all.
The actual address you obtain is set by the network administrator, but there is a way to tell if the network is not giving you a "real" address!
Windows 95 or 98 "start", "run" type in "cmd", then in the window that appears type "winipcfg"
Windows 2000 or later, "start", "run" type in "cmd", then in the window that appears type "ipconfig"
Both will give you screens of information that you can scroll through; look for your network adapter, then the IP address. (in the format xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
If the address begins 169.254 then you have NOT got a usable network connection.

No ip address on computer


IP addresses are generally assigned when you connect to another networking device such as a router, switch, or modem. You should first go to your Network Connections and right click on your networking device and click on properties. Click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and hit properties. Then click on the box that says Obtain IP address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically. Now when you make connection with the router, switch or modem it should assign you an IP address. If this doesn't happen then you need to check your network cable, or wireless log in proceedure to find out why you're not connecting. These rules aren't for all systems. Some ISPs may require you to put in DNS servers and IP addresses. If the above doesn't help then contact your ISP to find out if there are specific settings. You can also view your Network Configuration settings by going to "Start" > "Run" cmd then in the window type /ipconfig /all. If you're connected properly you should have IP address, default gateway, DNS server and DHCP servers.

No ip address


when you say ip/config you mean wifi properties and internet protocol properties right ?
if so select obtain ip address auto and select obtain dns auto.
if thats not what you mean...goto control panel ..open network connections...click on ur network connection ...in the list at left select change settings for this connection...in network properties scroll to internet protocol..double click to open..select obtain ip auto and obtain dns auto.
there are other ways to fill in fields but you need relevant info..
there are programs which can show u ip's but most require a special driver.
incidently if you choose ip and dns auto you will not see ip address but when connecting to network you will see aquiring ip address please wait.
if for some reason you still cant connect go to a place where you know have free internet access and connect there then net connection will be configured
