Left click start, left click control panel, left click power options, left click hibernate tab, uncheck enable hibernate, click apply, left click power schemes tab, set every selection under the plugged in category to never then click apply close the control panel. This is just to test internet connection to see if it continues to disconnect from the internet. It won't hurt to visit support.dell.com enter the tag number for your laptop and download the most recent driver for your Intel Proset Wireless Card and any recent updated driver updates if there are any listed. After downloading the new driver and you've performed the test of allowing the laptop to sit with hibernation disabled a while all selections under power schemes set to never. The laptop should not go into hibernate, thus should not disconnect from the internet. Downloading the newest driver is just another suggestion to resolve the issue.

My everex stepnote laptop will not connect to the internet per wireless now. Will connect via cable. See all wireless connection, but just continue to search and search and fail cnnection. Error message...


You may have a driver problem. First, simply try to set up a new wireless connection. If that doesn't work, try this.
While hardwired go to:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng
(just copy and paste into address bar of browser if necessary, or type it as one long string.
Under "products" choose "wireless networking". Under "Operating System", find your specific O.S.
Under "Download Type", choose "drivers". Then scroll down to find the drivers you need.
Download and install the driver package
If this doesn't work, repost with more information concerning the make, model of your computer, type of operating system, and be very specific. Give as much info as possible

Installation instructions:
Immediate Installation/Upgrade of Drivers on Local Machine
To install or update on this machine now, click 'Install Now' below or use standard OS installation methods

To Install or Update Later:
1. Click Start, Run and then browse to the directory where you extracted this archive.
2. Double click Setup.exe and click OK. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the install.
3. Right Click on "My Network Places, Choose properties and finish configuring your network.

Manual installation:
1. Click the My Computer and choose Properties, From Hardware tab, choose Device Manager.
2. Right click on Network Adapters and choose scan for hardware changes.
3. The Plug and Play Wizard should pop up. Follow instructions but don't select an Intel adapter from the list. Click on Have Disk.
4. Enter the path to the directory where you extracted this archive and click OK. Then follow the instructions to install the drivers. When the adapter is added, it appears in the Network adapters list.
5. Click OK and then Close. If prompted, restart Windows.

Optional Manual Update
1. Click the My Computer and choose Properties, From Hardware tab, choose Device Manager.
2. Right click on the adapter you wish to update under Network Adapters and choose Properties.
3. From the Driver Tab of the pop up, click the Update button.
4. Enter the path to the directory where you extracted this archive and click OK.
5. Follow the on-screen instructions to update the drivers.

NOTE: If you are installing a driver in a computer with existing Intel adapters, be sure to update all adapters with the same new software. This will ensure that all adapters will function correctly.

Troubleshooting
-Make sure that you use the drivers from this archive.

- When updating base drivers, if PROSet was installed, PROSet needs to be updated also. If you have downloaded the minimum Web Pak, you will need to download the full Web Pak to obtain the updated PROSet files before being able to access the PROSet application.

-In your computer's BIOS settings, make sure "Plug and Play OS" is set to YES.

-Make sure the driver is loaded and the protocols are bound.

-Check the Windows* Event Viewer for error messages.

-If you are attaching to a NetWare* network, check your frame type and verify that NetWare client or server software has been installed.

-Test the adapter with the Intel PROSet advanced configuration utility or with the DOS diagnostic provided in the Tools Directory contained in this archive.

-Check with your LAN administrator - you may need to install supplemental networking software.

Intel(R) PROSet II
To start Intel PROSet II, double-click the Intel PROSet icon found either in the lower right hand corner of the screen or go to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Intel PROSET II. To run diagnostics, select the adapter and click the Diagnostics tab, then click Run Tests. For additional information, click Help in the Intel PROSet window.
If this doesn't help go here:
http://www.piriform.com/speccy
Download and install the software. This will tell you everything you need to know about your computing environment that you will need to know to repost the question and get a definitive answer.
Open Device Manager (Start > Control panel > Hardware > Device Manager), look for anything that has a ?, or a yellow triangle w/an exclamation mark ( ! ). Make note of it in your next post.
Good luck
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a rating of 4.It will help me
as well. Thank you.

Ip Address 169.x.x.x Wireless Internet Connection Problems 6400/E1505 Dell Laptop


questions to ask yourself:
- I the wifi card connecting to the routers wifi network? or your next door neighbors?
- did it connect with the correct WEP? withouot the right WEP it will not communicatwith the WAP
- is the router set to be the DHCP server? this function is normally defaulted to ON

some times though windows simply has to have its TCP stack reset after having been connected to too many different networks, especially if you are a heavy wifi user.

open a command prompt: I see you already know how.

Type this command line

netsh int ip reset <anyfilenameyoulike>.txt
the txt file will be a log file tha will be placed on your main (c:) drive after the NETSH command has run

next lets reset winsock since we are here in the command line anyhow

netsh winsock reset

if everything goes right you'll be prompted to reboot you machine.

hopefully this will solve your inability to aquire an IP address from the router.

Wifi connection


hello
1. what is the model number of your adapter?
2. what is the operating system of your computer?
3. did you install the wireless adapter on your pc or is it a built in wireless adapter?
-- if you install another wireless adapter on your pc, possible that its the one causing the conflict between the two utility. I suggest to disable the other adapter before installing the other wireless adapter
-- if the wireless adapter is a built in wireless adapter and you are using a windows xp computer, chances are that the built in utility and the xp wzc are the one causing the problem. you have to disable one of this utility to make your connection working
-- the utility is sometimes located at your system. if you wish to use the utility you have to disable the wzx or the other way around.
