Unable to connect to the internet with a new loptop.

I have a USR8054 and works fine with my other two loptops, I bought another one -dell xps1330- vista , picks up an excellent signal but is unable to connect. it says windows cannot connect due to failed to recognize from router or access point. any suggestions.
thanks
Nicolas

    Thanks for your assistant. Yes, called dell and also my ISP. dell is asking me for another 230.00 to help me; they say is a software problem. and my ISP suggested my router company. we did try the basic steps but still unable to connect. I know there is a way to ping my router but I donot know the instructions. Thanks again

    Hi Nicolas, Have you tried with WPA encryption and Open System? Vista seems to like this. Also, Have you tried a router reset?

Check to see if the MACaddress has been registered with the router and then this has to be solved

check the security settings for WEP /WPA

also check to see if you would require DNS Server settings and any proxy to connect

Is your wifi broadcasting non-secured signal? try protecting your wireless network with a password. In your case, it might be caused by incompatible protocol like 802.11 a/b/g and if your encryption method is incompatible with your router.

Setup your encryption to WAP not WAP2 in your router interface (http;//192.168.1.1) and configure your Vista to connect to your network using that encryption.

My loptop not working in modem,but in wifi it is working


You must run the "Connect to internet Wizard" and set up the Dial Up connection, as default, from new, so that the WiFi is NOT the default connection, OR designate the Dialup connection as "Default" and Windows will then use that one to connect to the internet.

I bought a bear hard drive but loptop don't see it. I don't have a caddy or an adapter


Check your old HDD to see if there is an adapter that comes off the connection point that needs to be placed on the new drive. A lot of DELL laptops have this and it needs to be placed on the new drive or it will not be recognized.
