Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Home network I have three PC's at my house. Compaq, Gateway, Dell. The Dell is oldest. Recently set up wireless network. All PC's can see others EXCEPT Dell. It's invisible to the others and the Dell can't see the others either. Strange to me since the others work good on the network. Any ideas? The Dell is the one with the router on it; could that have anything to do with it? Don't see why. Thanks, folks.

Re: Home network

Please configure the router properly, see if you have enable dhcp on the router and the dell machine is may be using a static ip address, if that is the case disable the static ip from the dell machine and enable the get ip dynamically.

If you are hardly doesn't connect even your wireless station is been detected why not try to set your settings manually in your wireless card.

This is when you are behind a router.

Goto Network and sharing center. Click on Manage Wireless Network. Click on Adapter properties. Click Internet Protocol version 4. Click properties, then set the ipaddress of your laptop it doesn't have to be identical to any of your existing connection, your subnet, default gateway. And also input your IP DNS.

Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network

Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Maybe this will help?

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

I cannot get my wireless ethernet client to coonect with my 2 wire gateway router

Need more details.
Generally, first you need to turn on the wireless option in the gateway. Go to \\home or \home (depending on browser). Then go the Network option (no the broadband option), click of wireless settings, and make sure you have this enabled. That should atleast give you the basics. Anything further, please see the 2wire website and get the manual.

PCI card


Make sure you have any appropiate software installed and that you are using the correct wireless authentication method (WEP/WPA ect...)

Also check to make sure there is not IP Conflict between your PC and another wireless device on the network.

You can also try assiging your PC a IP Address to use within the gateway address, or set it to obtain it automatically.

exact instructions to do this all depend on your operating system and the wireless connection utility used.

Hope this helps

Wireless network

Hi there,
You will need to set the drives on the other networked PCs as "shared" before they will be visible on the network. You can do this by right clicking on the drives (while on the other computers) and going into the "sharing" tab. You must enable sharing and then set a name for the drive or folder you want to share. You can either share the entire drive or a specific folder, I recommend limiting the sharing to a specific folder instead of a whole drive for security purposes.

Happy sharing!

Windows 2K and Outlook Express's in the settings, under your Network connections. You may need to configure those to your new wireless carrier's email server approach.
