    unless you have a wep key you will not be able to access that network anyway.you need to search for a unprotected network.

    to search,select in drop menu for any networks.in properties put tick inside box for the network provides key.

    make sure when you installed software that uk was selected and not fdd;or any other for that matter because this tells the program to search in given area fields(channels)

Dell inspiron 1525 not connecting to internet


Hi,

I am one of the Dell Certified System Expert.

For internet connection, there are two ways to connect to the internet. One is through wired connection (connecting LAN cable) and connecting to wireless connection (through wireless router or through wireless Modem WLAN).

For wireless check the switch located on the left side of the portable after switching check the status light located at the front left of the computer.

check the driver if it is properly installed meaning no bang(!) or question mark(?) for both ethernet (LAN port) and Wireless Device.

To check the driver go to control panel then device manager. Check the network and you should be seeing the ethernet and wireless device. If not installed use the driver cd that came with the computer.

How to check the internet connection.
For Wired connection:
First check the cable, check the LAN port in the computer there should be blinking lights, if none try to reseat the cable. Check the ipaddress of the computer and the default gateway.

This is the instruction to get the IP address and default gateway.

For windows xp
1. Click start, then choose run then on the box type CMD then click ok.
2. on the black screen type ipconfig. get the ip address and default gateway.
3. normally it will give you 192.168.XXX.XXX
4. try to type ping 192.168.XXX.XXX (this should be the gateway)
5. If you receive replies, then you are connected to the router/modem
6. then try to ping www.yahoo.com
7. if still reply then you are connected to the internet already, might be your issue is browser or security on the computer.

For vista and Windows 7
click windows then in the start search type cmd, you should be seeing cmd on the top, right click then choose run as administrator. then follow steps 2-7 above.

For wireless connection
Check the switch, and the status light, if all are checked checked the ip address and default gateway as well, the instruction is the same above.

For more information about setting up your system please refer to the link.

Replace the Cable and Check.

If the problem still persists then

Give the same network setting to the wireless network adapter as you assigned to your local area connection.

Note: Before doing that remove the IP address of that Local area connection or change it's IP address to some other number.

This will most probably solve your problem.

Otherwise, Used an external USB Wireless Adapter.

With an Ethernet cable, connect from the netbook to a LAN port on the 2WIRE modem.

Access the built-in web-server on the 2WIRE modem, and configure the "wireless network settings" to your choice of SSID and network password/passphrase.

Then, from your computer, "View Available Wireless Networks",
and connect to the SSID that you have chosen.

Yes. You need to configure the router. Most of the new routers come with a cd that will guide you. You can also call ATT and they will guide you as well.

Wireless internet on laptop


You need an external WIRELESS ROUTER or MODEM ( provided by AT&T ). After this AT&T router configuration you needs to do configuration at your laptop using CONNECTION SETUP wizard for Wireless Networks & Devices.
Then you can set IP addresses & then you will be connected to it. I hope above steps will help you.
