Dell Inspiron 5100 Internet Access

Hello, my Dell Inspiron 5100 says it is connected to my wireless and it says it is connected to my Cat 5... but I cannot get on the actual internet with internet explorer (page not found). It appears to be connected but will not access. I was just up in Canada and it worked fine... and it was working down here in Oregon without any problems before. I reinstalled my Windows XP, but that did not help. There must be a setting off or something. Again it showes connected to my wireless router with Excellent Strength, and it shows connected to my hard wire also, but no internet access at all. Can you help? Thank you so much!

Re: Dell Inspiron 5100 Internet Access

Do you have your computer connected to your wifi network and your ethernet cable at the same time? Try having it connected to only one and see if that changes anything (ie, keep the wireless on and unplug the cable, or keep the cable plugged in and disable the wireless - if your laptop does not have a button/switch to turn off the wireless, you can do so by going to your network connections area from the control panel, right clicking on the wireless internet icon, and selecting disable.)

How do i get my dell inspiron E1705 to connect wirelessly?


First of all make sure the Wifi is turned on your laptop.
You need to press Fn+F2 at the same time to turn the wireless on. Once its on you need to connect to the wifi network in range and you are good to go.

To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network or wireless card and install the LAN or wireless driver.
1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider.
2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem
3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions.
4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done.
5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet. If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

Because your wireless network is lacking ...

There are many reasons for limited coverage with wireless ... aluminised wall paper, multiple walls, electromagnetic fields. With your computer, the antenna is probably minimal.

If you want good, fast coverge, run some Cat 5 wire to the places you require access where there is no wireless. The wire connections will work better too.
