Question about Dell Wireless 2350 Router

Installing dell wireless 2350 router gets configuration failure

I had this set up previously for 2 years but when I moved cross country and tried to reinstall with original CD I get "Failure: unable to configure router" messsage. I access internt fine when wired directly into modem or even through router. I have a Dell 5160 Inspiron laptop and use Comcast as my provider. I have tried both secure and non-secure configuration. I have set up a few wireless networks for friends so am not a total newbie but I feel stumped and Dell is no help.
Can wireless routers get burned out? It is about 4 years old. I know it is an older model - should I just upgrade?

    Thanks for responding.



    Settings for what exactly? Would these be settings I would change on my laptop/XP? The guided setup for the router offers no input whatsoever.

If its not broke dont replace it... you will need to contact your ISP for propper settings for that router. if that fails then the router needs upgrading.

Hey ! I've got a DELL Wireless 2350 Broadband Router and it's working just fine. Recently I purchased a wireless printer (Samsung ML-1856W). I get the printer to work via the network if I...


My first thought would be to try different forms of encryption on your router. It's possible that your printer may not support the type of encryption you're trying to use which may be causing it to have trouble connecting. For example, if you're using WPA encryption, try switching to a WEP key instead. You can change all of these settings from your Wireless Router's configuration page.

Disconnection problems


I see. You can try changing the wireless settings of the router. You can do that by accessing the web based utility of the router. Here are the instructions:

1. Click the Start button, and then click Run.
2. Type the following text in the Open box: http://my.router
3. If this is the first time configuring your Dell Wireless 2350 Broadband Router, or if the user name and password have not been changed from the default settings, type admin in the User Name field and admin in the Password field.
4. Click the OK button. The Configuration screen appears.
5. Under the Basic settings, under Wireless Settings change the channel from Auto to 1, 6, or 11.

If that does not work, you can try updating the firmware of the router. You can download the firmware from this site:
http://www.dell-drivers.com/dell-drivers-downloads/Dell-Wireless-2350-Broadband-Router_8689.shtml

Here are the instructions on how to upgrade:

1. Reaccess the configuration page of the router using a wired computer.
2. Click on System Tools, find Firmware Upgrade.
3. Click Browse and search for the firmware you downloaded from the site I gave you earlier. Select it and then start the upgrade. Let the firmware finish its upgrade.

Setup problems with DELL 2350 router


sometimes windows messes the whole network up when using the set up wizard, you need to go to the properties of your wireless cards and check on the TCP/IP line that the radio button that says obtain ip address automaticaly is ticked. Go into the routers properties menu and check that DHCP is enabled and so allow the router to allocate ip addresses automatically, although you may need to do this via an rj45 cable and not wireless to begin with.
