    Have you installed the XP service packs (need to install SP2 first then XP3)? Have you installed the wireless LAN driver?

Did you install anti-virus or firewall ? you may want to check if the ports are open.
is it just access to the internet or do you also have a local area network connection problem? Can you see/access other pcs on the network? If so, the problem may be in the router and not the pc

Cant get my dell inspiron 1100 to recognize my modem after reinstalling installing xp system


Oh my goodness, who uses a modem? Please don't tell me you get on the internet using a phone line and modem.

Ohh Internet Modem as his first sentence says. I'm thinking that means he has a high speed modem from a internet service provider. Ok, I would suggest that you remove the power cord, remove the battery, turn the laptop over and find the cover that houses the wireless modem and remove the antennas (black and white cables) from the wireless card, then remove the wireless card from the slot. Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then put everything back together and reboot.

Hello, I have Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop and wireless Internet doesn't connect. I see the wifi light is ON and I see in Internet connection it shows my profile as connected. But if i browse internet does...


Please connect your computer directly to your DSL / Cable modem and check if your internet is working fine, if not turn off your modem and restart after a minute or two.

Now check again if the internet is working by directly connecting your laptop to your modem. if it is not working, contact ISP. if it is working, turn on your router and check if your wireless connection is working.

If you wireless connection is still not working, please check if you have plugged the modem to the internet / WAN port behind your router.

Also try logging to your router page (refer to manual for procedure) and try changing the wireless channel.

My dell inspiron 1100 will not connect wirelessly to the internet i have a router and high speed internet


the dell inspiron 1100 doesn't have an intergrated wireless card unless you had a card put in it when you bought it, will not connect to the net with wireless if you have any more Q's, and this goes for the tower and the laptop as far as I know .

Just got new modem and router, main PC on home


Right-click the network connection and click REPAIR, see if that resolves.
If you are getting a Valid IP address (192.168.x.x) then that should help. If you are getting a (169.254.x.x) APIPA address, then you are not getting network connectivity. That may involve the Wireless Security Key, or the security protocol (If using WPA the card in a 1100 may not support that protocol)

My inspiron 6000 will connect to my wireless


Several resoning behind this one. One check your firewall setting, and make sure your wireless card have permission. Two, make sure that your mac filtering is turn off. Your wirless network has it own mac address and it is not in the router as to be aloud, it will block it. Three if your wireless network has a password, make sure you enter in right, it is case sensative. Four make certain that you have your wireless device is connected to the modem, or modem wireless combine. Finally, if you were running wired, try to clean the temperary ineternet filess off.

I cannot connect to the internet via wireless


Try opening "network connections" in the Control panel, and right-click the wireless adapter and select "repair". Another thing you can try is turning off both computers, turning off the router, then the modem. Wait one minute, turn the modem back on, wait about 15-20 seconds, then turn the router back on. Then turn your computer back on.

Their are many things this could be but this will fix the most common things. If you have recently installed any new software try restoring your computer to an earlier time:
start>all programs>accessories>system tools> "System Restore"
Restore your computer to the most recent date when the wireless worked.

If none of these things work, let us know and we'll go from there.

Good Luck
Simon.

You wireless card can be controlled 2 ways, the card Wireless Utility (Dell Wireless or Intel Wireless Utility are the normal default ones) and the "Windows Zero Config" Windows wireless utility. You may need to go in to the Dell/Intel Wireless utility, and select "Let Windows Manage My Wireless" You should then get a popup saying wireless networks are available, click that balloon, select your network, and click connect. If secure, at that point you'll be prompted to type the passkey. If you are using an older Wireless card, it may only support WEP security. Vista and newer systems use a newer protocol, WPA.
