Question about Dell Wireless 2350 Router

1 Answer

No Internet I am trying to assist my sister, who is in another state. She can connect to the wireless network with her Vista laptop, but can no longer access the internet. I had her do a hard reset. She once again is connecting to the wireless network, but receives a "Page can not be displayed on her wireless laptop (Vista), and on her wired desktop (XP) when trying to access the internet. Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you, Rick

ISP's have different requirements for connecting a router to their hardware. One required me to enter a static IP address, another requires acceptance of a dymanic IP address and a third uses dynamic IP addresses and requires a PPPoE logon from the router and a configuration change to their modem to switch it to a bridge, and a fourth I have read about require a reboot of their modem device to recognise changes in the MAC address (assigned to the network adapter) of the attached device (router). I am sure these are not all the variations possible, Requirements for router connections specifically the WAN side of the router are specific to your ISP. Often in their help or support areas they either have FAQ's or help pages to explain the requirements or an online technician available through chat who can tell you what is required. Often however it is up to you to be able to perform then necessary configuration tasks (especially on you hardware) to make this happen. I may be able to provide assistance of you identify you internet provider including local provider companies and geographic location (city / State) in some cases to determine their policies and requirements for attaching routers to their equipment.

Once you determine this connect the router and get a wired connection to work assuming the router has ethernet ports.

Then test an unencrypted wireless connection

When that works consider the following:

My sister is visiting and when we tried to put her laptop on my internet hookup the message was displayed stating that my internet connection through comcast was unsecured. What do I do to correct this...


its letting you know that your wireless network is open and not secured. she just needs to acknowledge it and she will be able to browse the internet but it is not secured.
if you want to secure your wireless network you will need to configure it by opening internet explorer
browse to http://192.168.1.1
the default login is blank and the password is admin
click on wireless
click on wireless security and choose wpa personal
enter a passphase which you will use to join your wireless network securely on any wireless device.
your sister will need to rejoin the network once you do this and you will need to rejoin any other wireless device to join your secured wireless network.

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655


The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

If unsure of your network key try to reconfigure your wireless network again.

Access the configuration page of your router. type on the address bar 192.168.0.1
On login type Admin leave password blank. if you set up a >password or the login page use that one.
>Once inside the Dlink Page
>Go to setup and on the left side click wireless setting.
>If given the option to click on manaul wireless connection setup click on it.
>Once you have the wireles window
>try to change the network name and scroll down
>Under security choose WPA security (enhanced)
>Scroll down and under the Passphrase type in your new network passwork or security key and confirmed it.
>Click on Save Settings
>If it asked your to reboot then reboot if not its ok

>Using your laptop click start and go to "connect to" and click on your wireless network and connect to it and along the way it will prompt you to enter your network key or password. This would be the same as your passphrase or pre-share key type in your network key.
> Once connected to your wireless network, Open an Internet browser to connect to the Internet.

It's been isolated that the problem is coming from the wireless adapter on your laptop since other pc works fine. Try updating the driver on your wireless adapter and see if that will resolve your intermittent connection.

Try resetting your IP address:
The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
2) Click Run
3) Type in CMD
This will take you to a black command box
4) Type in: ipconfig/release
The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
You should now see a new IP address listed.

Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.

Laptop connection to Internet


In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).
