SOURCE: can't connect to internet through wireless

Dell XP Installation CDs are the same for all systems, the drivers for different systems are contained on the Resource CD for that system. Dell also usually places the drivers for the system in a specific location on the hard drive to be reinstalled later if needed. It depends on the type of installation you performed.

If you did a Repair Installation, the underlying files and programs would have remained intact and the correct drivers would be found in the c:\dell\drivers folder from the original installation. However, if you did a Full Installation you must do one of the following:

1) locate the Resource CD for your Inspiron 6400 and install it;

2) see if 'Local Area Connection' shows under the Start button->My Computer->Connect To->Show All Connections menu, and if so just hook to the router or modem by an ethernet cable until you download the drivers from Dell's website (support.dell.com);

3) download the drivers from Dell's website (support.dell.com) on a different machine and copy them to a USB memory stick or cd, then insert the media into the Inspiron 6400 and install the drivers;

or

4) install a USB or PCMCIA wireless card or ethernet connector just to get you online so you can get to the Dell site to download the correct drivers. You probably know someone you can borrow such a device from rather than pay the $30-$40 to buy it new. Once the correct drivers are installed you wouldn't need it again.

SOURCE: Dell Truemobile 1300 will not connect

You have to reconnect to the wireless network you have been using. In the lower right corner of the desktop there should be an icon that looks like a computer screen with 3 or 4 wavy lines above it. Right click on this, select "view available wireless networks", highlight the one you want to connect to, and click connect. You might have to have a security code to get into it.

SOURCE: my drive crashed so i installed a new hard drive,

Try to manually update the drivers.
Go to Settings/Control Panel/System
Hardware tab
Then Device Manager
Click on one and update.
Let the OS search the CD with the drivers.
(You may have to navigate to the correct directory)

If this fails you will have to go to the DELL website and download the drivers for your machine.

Hope this helps!
Good luck!

No sim card installed


Internet should be already on a laptop. It could be tough, the best thing to try on win XP is click on Control Panel in the Windows start menu (that should be on the part of the menu that is NOT all programs) then click Administative Tools (with the little hammer and folder and pc picture Icon) then you'll see 2 little gears called Services, click on that. Those Services should be in alphabetical order if not alphabitize them by clicking on the coloums heading (it says name) this click will sort the services by alphabetical order. Now scroll up or down to the services that start with the letter W. Find Windows Zero Configuration, and double click that. Change Start Up Type in the drop down box to Automatic, and click START just below it. Click OK at the very bottom. Maybe restart your PC, is best. You have to install a driver get it online or use the disc that came with your wireless card. Usually the ones from online don't always install automatically like a CD does, but you can find most drivers from the manufactures web site. If the online one doesn't install automatically, you'll have to click My Computer with the RIGHT HAND mouse button click the very bottom choice called properties from the list that drops down, then you should have a window with 7 tabs at the top, click the one that says Hardware. Click on the very top button Device Manager this opens a window that shows every piece on mechanical hardware and some virtual hardware install inside your PC in groups. One group should be open (or expanded) if your wireless card is not installed properly. There will be an entry that say UNKNOWN DEVICE with a tiny yellow circle with an exclamation point in it Click that the new box that opens usually has four or five tabs at the top, sometimes only three, but the second tab is almost guarenteed to say Driver click on Driver and then the second button down on that page is Update Driver, click that and then use the Browse button to browse around your PC for the driver files, either on the disc or where you downloaded them (My Documents, desktop, some other folder) if the download is a Zip file you have to Extract all files to a folder and them browse to that folder. Win XP is easy just double click the download it opens in a folder and to your left in the folder window but towards the top there is a command it says Extract Files, just look carfully at the next step to see where, or change where they will be unzipped to. Browsing for the driver is easy Update Driver, next Browse, find the location on the CD or on you PC look for a folder that says Drivers, or XP, or x86 and select it if the OK button at the bottom turns black theres a chance thats the right folder, just click OK. If it's not you'll be told by Windows so just try again in a different folder, you'll find it, when you hit the right one your Wireless card will install. Restart. And a little mini computer Monitor should appear way over to the very bottom right of your monitor in the Notification Area. Double click that little tiny monitor icon (the one with the single monitor picture not the one with the double monitors as that is your WIRED connection) and you should get the Choose A Wireless Network window, or Wireless Network Connection Status window, if you get the network status window your already connected, but could be connected to a dead router that the peoples cable has been shut off for a year but they never unplugged their router, or the wrong network. Down below on the network status window click View Wireless Networks, and that will bring you to Choose a Wireless Network, click on yours, click Connect down below and your on. Sounds easy huh? Not in my lifetime. Call me. KEN

My problem is window xp already install in my computer.i want reinstall in my computer.how do this?


First, locate the Windows CD that shipped with your PC, along with the CDs for your application software. If you downloaded your antivirus, firewall, or other programs, copy those downloads to a CD or to some other type of removable media. (If your system didn't ship with a Windows CD, your reinstallation files are situated on your hard drive; I'll describe how to access them in just a minute.) Also, dig up the instructions that your ISP sent you for configuring your network settings, and keep them close at hand.
Copy the contents of your 'C:\Documents and Settings' folder (or whichever folder you store your personal files on) to a CD or other removable medium. Then grab any other critical data and back it up. It helps to collect the installers for the latest drivers for your PC's graphics card and other hardware, too.
Ready to ReinstallNow insert the Windows CD that came with your PC, and reboot your system. If you didn't receive a Windows disc with your machine, the files you need are sitting in a hidden partition on your hard drive. To access them, press the keys indicated on your screen when you reboot, but before Windows loads. The keys differ from vendor to vendor, so contact your PC's manufacturer if you don't see the prompt.
In many instances, the only available option is 'Return the drive to its factory condition', which destroys all documents, photos, and other data files on your PC. That's why you made a copy of your data folders.
You get more options--including the ability to preserve your files and settings--when you use Microsoft's own Windows XP installation disc. Make your selection, and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the reinstallation.
Starting OverRegardless of which option you choose, you'll have to reconfigure your network connections, reinstall some of your device drivers, and update XP and your applications manually.
To configure your Internet connection, right-click My Network Places, click Create a new connection, and follow the prompts, entering the appropriate information you received from your ISP.
Once you've re-established your Internet link, you must reinstall and update your firewall, antivirus, and antispyware programs.
Next, check to see which of your device drivers need updates: Rght-click My Computer and select Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Look for entries with yellow question marks or red exclamation points. A question mark indicates that Windows is using a generic driver for that device instead of one specifically designed for it; an exclamation point means that the device is not working.
The drivers for graphics boards, sound cards, and printers are most likely to need an update. If you haven't already done so, visit the vendors' Web sites to download updated drivers to your PC. Run the installer for each updated driver, allowing XP to reboot when needed, or right-click the entry in Device Manager, choose Update Driver, and step through the wizard, selecting No, not this time to the Windows Update question, and choosing the specified location option when it appears. When you can navigate to the driver file, select it and click OK to install it. When you finish updating your drivers, close all open windows.
Updates GaloreYour next stop is Microsoft's Windows Update site. Click Start, Windows Update, and follow the prompts. Since you'll probably be downloading many megabytes of updates, you might want to find yourself a good book or seek some other diversion while you wait.
When the downloading is complete, you'll be ready to reinstall and update your applications. Don't forget to update your critical apps as well. Microsoft Office, in particular has some important updates. Download them at the Microsoft Office Online Downloads page.
Once you've restored your applications, begin replacing your data. The first priorities are the My Documents and Application Data folders, which you'll find in the folder with your logon name inside 'C:\Documents and Settings'. To bring back your Internet Explorer favorites, restore the contents of the Favorites folder. Also restore the Shared Data and Application Data folders inside 'C:\Documents and Settings\Shared Documents'. Once you've reintroduced all of your data, your Windows refresh will be complete.

CAUSE
Windows XP SP3 introduces a new .dll file that is named Wlanapi.dll. This file is installed in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. Certain device driver installations for some third-party wireless network adapters also install a Wlanapi.dll file in the %WINDIR%\System32 folder. If such a file is installed in this folder before you install Windows XP SP3, the Wlanapi.dll file that is associated with the network adapter is replaced by the file from the Windows XP SP3 installation.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, check the Web site of the wireless network adapter's manufacturer for the latest device drivers that are available for a Windows XP SP3-based system. Then, download and install the latest device drivers for the wireless network adapter. Source(s): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950720

Number 4. Under Drivers. LAN: Intel® PRO Network Connections Driver. File name: LAN_allOS_13.0.1_PV_Intel_165622.exe. Run the .exe from within the folder.
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2377&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
Re-install the driver. If windows still fails to install correctly than install through device manager. Click on the start button, slide up to & open control panel. Open the System icon. Click the hardware tab, than click on the device manager button. Find the yellow ! point for the nic driver. Right click once on the ! point, than slide up to & left click update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away. Click the Browse button. Another window will open. (Browse for the folder you created on you're desktop).
Open that folder. Left click once on the new yellow folder named LAN_allOS_13.0.1_PV_Intel_165622 so it is high lighted, than click ok. Windows should correctly install the Nic driver. Restart you're system when finished. That's it!

Good luck!
