Hey Charlie, If you re-installed your operating system you will need to get the wireless modem driver from your dell disk. For some reason they have not included the drivers in the windows software. If you can't find it then you can go on to the Dell site(obviously on another computer) and enter your service tag and get your drivers that way.

I hope this helps

Can't get router to connect to Dell Dimension 2400 desktop


Try turning OFF DHCP from services. This may fix your problem. Look for "DHCP Client", double click on it (or right click and choose properties), STOP the service, then set it's startup type to 'manual'. That'll kill it. See DHCP is what "Gives out/assigns addresses" and on the ONLY PC, it is the First one... 192.168.0.1... Both PC's will be assigning themselves as that, and that will cause a conflict. As the Router now does the DHCP work. Of course ensure you DO have DHCP set on router.

When I connect a laptop or xbox by wireless, I loose the internet connection on the main PC, i then cant have more than one wireless connection at the same time. I can only have one internet connection...


Please check if the router settings is set to DHCP rather than giving static IP addresses. You can do this by logging into the router's page and then navigate to the Wireless Settings portion. If it is set to give out static IP address only, change the setting and allow DHCP.

Windows vista laptop lost connection to the internet


Start off simple. Try a different port on the router. If that doesn't work, try a new cable. If that doesn't work, go to the Device Manager in Windows. (Right-click My Computer, select Manage, go to Device Manager). Does the card look okay? Has it been disabled or need a driver update? If we're still looking at issues then I would take a look at your router security. How many DHCP licences do you allowed to be assigned? Also do you have security in place (WEP/WPA, Mac Filtering, SSID Broadcast)? If you are light on security and only have a few assignable DHCP licences, you may have neighbors leeching your internet access.

To clarify: DHCP assigns a network IP address to each device on its network. Most Linkys routers have a default of 10, you may have reduced this yourself. If you have, you've limited the # of devices allowed on the network. So if you have 3 DHCP licenses available, and a couple neighbors are leeching, your Dell may not get assigned an ip.

If you still need further help, let me know.

Dell Latitiude D 610 unable to connect to internet


When the network-cable from your computer is connected to the Cisco LinkSys router, click START -> RUN -> 'cmd'
and press ENTER.
Enter 'ipconfig' and press ENTER.
Look for a line like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.20.30.40

Open Internet Explorer, and enter: http://10.20.30.40
to connect to the web-server "inside" the Linksys router.
Enter the router's password (probably still 'admin'),
and you can then configure the "wireless" settings inside the router.

Once configured, you can disconnect the network-cable,
and start using the wireless-adapter _inside_ your computer.

US Robotics Wireless Router problem


Sounds like some settings on the wireless router might be setup wrong...like DNS. While hooked into wireless, try going to a command prompt and type ipconfig /renew. Once it refreshes, type in ipconfig /flushdns. Try the Internet.

If that doesn't work then check the settings on the wireless router and see if the DHCP is setup with a static IP or dynamic one.

Depending on what that says, I can provide next steps.

Netgear No Internet connected detected


Are you sure you have a PPPoE Modem? Usually these are DSL connections from Phone and Satellite ISP's... But there are also other ISP's that use them, although a very large percentage of ISP's just use DHCP. Try to set the router up using DHCP instead of PPPoE and see if that works...
To check if you are on the internet:
Start-> Run -> cmd [enter]
in the black box:
ping google.com [enter]

another useful command is:
ipconfig

First make sure wireless is turned ON or enabled on the computer, then use the View Available Networks to connect to the your SSID or network name. IF you can connect to router then you should be able to surf Internet.

My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!


it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
