    I am not sure what you mean by "wireless cad"? I can only get on the internet through my ethernet cord, not wireless. Thanks.

    I recently purchased a NETGEAR WGR614v7 (supposed to be wireless) router. I is only functioning as a pass through connection to Comcast. The wireless portion does not work and I don't know how to configure it based on the failed attempts via directions from the prescribed web site. Everything seems to be hooked up to the proper portals. Is there a phone number I can call to talk/walk this through? Hopeful - PattyN

Try to check your wireless card, the ethernet port is different. Inspirons have built in wireless cards/go to control panel>device manager>under network adapter check if there would be any x mark or exclamation point on it.If it happens that you see one, if x you just need to right click on it and then enable, if ! you need to reinstall the driver for it. Try to also check your Wireless zero configuration if it is started or not.

SOURCE: Computer won't recognize wirless network

I'm having a similar roblem. reset will work only for a eriod of time. (day or two at the most) Problem getting worse over last couple months. Almost seems like a power-supply issue, but the wired computer is - usually - fine, though it has had the odd connection issue (slow, web page timeouts, etc). Usually I just unlug the unit and modem from the wall for ten seconds then its fine again.

I noticed in the Log window of the SMC advanced set up that there are a lot of "Dail on Demand" events. I have no idea what this is, but it seems strange.

SOURCE: no connection to internet

First thing you need is to run the set up disk that you should have received when you purchased modem. It should run you through the steps. This should also allow you to set up your wireless connection also. It should also provide you the access code for your wireless security. Basically what this does is prevent unauthorized access to your network. Whenever you add additional computers you will need to set up each individually and enter access codes. If you don't have a disk you might need to contact manufacturer to get a replacement disk. Good luck.

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

How to connect to the internet


You should have a home modem from and ISP (Internet Service Provider) Also If you have a router you need to plug the Ethernet Cord (the cord that looks like a Giant phone line) into the internet port of the router, Now if the router is a wireless router and you want to use the internet wirelessly you need to open your wireless connections and you will see your router in the list. Simply double click the connection and it will automatically connect for you. If you do not have a wireless router and you want to connect more than one computer to the internet,Simply keep the ethernet cord plugged into the internet port on the router and you should have 4 other ports next to each other. Plug another ethernet cord into port 1 and plug into the back or side of computer. That's it. I hope this helped have a good day

My router flashes DSL, no light on the internet, ethernet and wireless flash together, and power light on. no wired or wireless internet. solution? the afternoon it happened, a lightning storm came thru...


Hey danielbartle,

Since a lighting storm came through there is a good chance your router has been fried.

I would first direct connect via your modem to see if you get a internet connection and rule out your modem as a problem. If that doesn't work I would try another ethernet cord to rule out your cord is a problem. If you get no connection directly through your modem, I would contact your ISP with your problem.

If you get a connection I would then reset the router by unplugging and waiting 30 seconds and plugging it back in.

If still nto succesful I would reset your router to defualt settings by a small button you will find on back.

If none of these work I would head to your local computer shop and pick up a new router.

Thanks for using Fixya!

I am trying to connect my new router to my laptop,but the instructions say i should connect my pc to the internet by connecting my ethernet cable to the router.my problem is i have only one connection and...


Modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN port on router

LAN port #1 on router <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop computer

LAN port #2 on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on laptop computer

If the router has built-in "wireless" capability, then use the desktop computer's connection to the router to "configure" the wireless adapter, i.e., pick an SSID, and establish a password, and then your laptop computer can use the SSID/password to connect "wirelessly" to the router.

Trouble Connecting


The modem only attaches to one address following boot. Turn off the modem, turn off your wireless router...turn on the modem, wait several seconds for it to boot and then attach it to to the wireless router. Start the wireless router. Attach with your computer through the ethernet to the router first and configure it to use DHCP over wireless. Then attampt connecting to the access point over wireless. If it works, then configure WEP. Be sure to use the Hex key that it generates and not the WEP key you built it from. For example, if your password is "Rosebud" use the one it creates that looks like "fcae9969e..."

Connecting to computer


If there are additional ethernet ports (looks like a large phone cord port) on the back of your router, you can connect one of the ethernet ports on the back of the router with the ethernet port on the back of your computer, using a patch cable, which is category 5/5e cable with the large phone plugs on each end.

Or, you will need to purchase a wireless adaptor for your computer, preferrably a Netopia brand.

Ah, you can no longer use the modem or the Blitzz screen to connect to your Internet connection. You'll need to patch another Ethernet cord from the router to your Ethernet port on your computer and it should automatically connect. If you still get prompted to dial, open up Internet Explorer and ignore any prompts to dial and then click Tools, then Internet Options, then click the Connections tab at the top, then click the selection to Never Dial a Connection. Confirm your choice by clicking OK and then try browsing the Internet like usual.
