Question about Dell Inspiron 7000/7500

3 Answers

Dell INspiron 7500 laptop

I bought this laptop on eBay, and it seems to be very good, BUT there was no user manual with it, and not being computer literate, I don't know how to get onto the internet. It has a WiFi wireless card for wireless internet and networking. Does this mean I have to get a router? I also have an HP PC, which I get along with pretty well, but I REALLY want to use this laptop.

    What do you mean "if the wifi is on? What kind of router should I get?
    Thanks!

  • sactolady Dec 10, 2007

    Thank you.. The laptop has a LAN /Ethernet card for broadband conections, high speed, and networking. Also has a WiFi wireless card for wireless internet and networking. Do I still need a router, and where would I put it. Don't understand. Sorry!

First, you must be in range of a Wifi hotspot (wireless local area network). You can adjust network setting to connect to an access point such as a Wi-Fi hotspot or the router on a wireless home network. Hotspots can be found in airports, hotels, restaurants, and at home if you have a wireless network.

To get a wifi hotspot at home you'll need a WLAN card / a router installed on your modem. but your laptop always directly to connect internet via LAN.

When you need to connecting a cell phones as modem, you'll need PC Suite installed on laptop. you can get its from your cell phones support providers.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information. ^_^

You will need router to access wireless internet. If the WiFi is on, and you hook up/have a router, it should pop up and say wireless networks detected. If you don't want to/can't get a router, the best you can do is plug the ethernet cable into it. If you don't know what I'm talking about, look in the back of your desktop computer ("HP PC"?) for a cable that looks like a phone line, but wider, and then plug that into the jack on the laptop, which will also look like a phone jack, only wider.

    You can enable and disable wifi, usually with a switch/button on the outside of the laptop.

    Get a D-Link or Linksys. They are good and easy to use.

    is your desktop, going online..and may i know who is your internet service provider(isp)?..

  • mohana sundaram Dec 10, 2007

    you can go for linksys wireless routers, model no, wrt54g, or wrt54gs, which will work good with comcast connection, connect the comcast directly to the laptop, you would be able to access internet, a router is a device which shares internet connection, if you get a wireless router, you would be able to go oinline , both wired in the desktop and wiresll in your laptop..

  • mohana sundaram Dec 10, 2007

    Connect the Cable modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. If it can go on line,
    to setup connection..
    Step 1:
    Connect the Broadband modem to the router’s WAN or Internet port.
    Step 2:
    Connect the computer to any available numbered port (1, 2, 3 or 4).
    NOTE: In this example, we’ll connect the computer to port number 3.
    Step 3:
    Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet.
    Step 4:
    check if you are able to go on line wired with the desktop now and then check in the laptop, you would be able to go online too..

SOURCE: No user manual, and how to get on the internet.

Hi,

You will find the manual of your product on this link, you have to select the model and than you can download it.

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/manuals?c=us&l=en&s=gen

You mentioned that you have a WiFi wireless card, that wireless card enables you to connect to the Internet via a wireless network. So in order to create a wireless network at your home you still need a router. The WiFi card will connect to the router to get the access to the Internet.

Hope this would help you. Will wait for the rating to find it out.

Thanks

Sammy

    To resolve this issue, update the BIOS on your Dell Inspiron to revision A13 or later. This BIOS is available on Dell's support Web page.
    To work around this issue, change the display setting in your computer BIOS to LCD instead of SIMUL. Also, you may be able to connect an external monitor to the VGA port on the laptop. For information about changing this setting, refer to the documentation included with your computer.
