Make sure all your drivers uare upto date!!!

If so you can attempt setting auto obtain IP and DNS. If that works you are good to go. If not then you need to ring your ISP and make sure that u have no fees or if the network is down.

How to connect my wii to my dell xps400


Desktop computers are not known for their wireless connectivity, but it is possible to make yours one that is.


Wireless network adapters, which enable your desktop to pick up wireless Internet signals, come in a variety of forms, and are all fairly easy to install.


Once you have one installed, getting online wirelessly is almost effortless.

Choose the network adapter that is right for you.


The easiest network adapters to connect do so via USB, but if you have limited USB ports on your desktop, you may want to try another option.


There are also network adapters that plug into your Ethernet port, but if you want to use that port for a landline connection you have, and wireless is your backup, then this also may not work for you.


If that is the case, you can buy an add-in card, which fortunately for Dell owners is very easy to install.


Dell computers are designed to be opened and have add-in cards installed without the use of screwdrivers; check your manual for details.


Install the network adapter and any included software.


The adapter will usually come with a software CD with a notice to run the CD either before or after you have plugged in or installed your adapter.


Go through the setup steps on the CD, click "Finish" when it is complete, and your wireless network adapter should then be activated and ready to receive wireless signals.


Click the notification that pops up letting you know that wireless networks are available; or, if there is no notification, go "Start > Connect To" and all available networks will be displayed.


Double-click on the logo for the network you want to connect to and enter the security key if it is a secure network.


(If you set the network up, you should have the security key saved somewhere with your network settings.

If you are connecting to a nearby hotspot, you will need to ask the permission of whoever set up the connection and obtain the security key from that person.)


Select "Home," "Work" or "Public Location" when prompted to designate what type of network connection this is.


You will then be asked if you want your computer to remember this computer and start it automatically in the future.


If you plan to use this connection regularly, it is a good choice to check the boxes next to both options so that the connection will always be available and you won't have to enter a security key for it again.


Hope this helps.

After you select a wireless network, your wireless network adapter will be automatically configured to match the settings of that network, and a network connection attempt will be made.

To configure settings on the Wireless Networks tab, you must be logged on as an administrator, and you must use a wireless network adapter that supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service. If you are unsure whether your wireless network adapter supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service, contact your network administrator or the wireless network adapter manufacturer.

How to install an wirless adapter to mi desktop


Install a wireless network adapterIn areas that are served by a wireless network, you can connect to a computer network without using a cable, and surf the Internet or connect with other computers. To connect to a wireless network, your computer needs a wireless network adapter.
Many new computers-especially laptops-come with wireless adapters. Before using your computer, check to see if it already has a wireless network adapter.
If your computer doesn't have a wireless network adapter, you can install one.
Install a wireless USB network adapter. Most people prefer this type of adapter for any type of computer, because it's easy to install.
Install a wireless CardBus or CF network adapter. For portable computers, this type of adapter (also called a PCMCIA or PC Card) is easier to travel with than a USB adapter, because it is often smaller and fits securely in the PC Card slot on the side of the computer.
Install a wireless internal network adapter. If you have a desktop computer, you may prefer an internal adapter so that you can use the USB port to connect another accessory.
The type of adapter you install depends on your computer and your level of expertise.
How to determine if you already have a wireless network adapterMany portable computers manufactured after 2000 have wireless networking built in. However, because the antenna is hidden inside the computer, it's not easy to see.
To see which network adapters are currently installed in your computer
1.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
69010-click-control-panel.gif 2.
Click Network and Internet Connections.
69010-click-network-and-internet-connections.gif 3.
Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
69010-click-network-connections.gif 4.
Microsoft Windows XP displays your network adapters. Wireless network adapters are labeled Wireless Network Connection. If an adapter displays a red X, it is disconnected. If the Network Connections window is blank, your computer doesn't yet have a wired or wireless network adapter.

Resetting the adapter


Use the computer you are on to download the updated driver for the network adapter from the Toshiba Website. After you have the updated driver install it on the computer your having a problem on. Reboot the computer. If the problem is still there and you have a cable connected to the network connection and to the router, uninstall the network adapter from the device manager and reboot the computer. That should detect and install the adapter and resolve the problem. If it doesn't there is a problem with the network adapter and you will need to use the wireless of get a PCMCIA card to use for networking. Toshiba does use a replaceable Network card in some laptops, if nothing else above works and you don't want to get another card to plug in you may want to look into purchasing a new card from Toshiba to replace the old one.

Hi!

Check with your laptop's manual or specification sheet if it came with a built in wireless adapter. If it does, then you do not need to use a wireless adapter. All you have to do is to configure the wireless utility of your laptop to connect to your preferred wireless network.

You can also check Device Manager to check if there is a built in wireless adapter. Assuming you are using Windows XP - Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Look for Network Adapters. Check if there is anything under Network Adapters that says "wireless" or 802.11A/B or G. If there is, then again you do not need to install a wireless adapter.

Once you verified that there is a built in wireless adapter, just configure the wireless adapter utility to connect wirelessly to you preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!
