Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Problem: Both Dell laptop computers, Inspiron and Studio XPS, stopped printing wirelessly through our Verzion wireless router to our hardwired desktop printer. Conditions: 1. Wireless network works fine between the computers and the Verizon wireless router (i.e. we have internet access). 2. Desktop computer still prints to printer (i.e. printer works). 3. Desk top computer communicates through hardwire (not wireless) with the router (i.e. we have inernet access). Question: Why can't I print from either Dell laptop computer via wireless, to router, hardwired to Desktop computer, hardwired to printer? Everything worked fine until last week.

Hello,

I think the problem is that you have to restart your wireless router and wait a while for it to boot, after it has boot, you will also need to reinstall the printer driver on your laptop and makesure you restart your system after this to ensure that the driver is well installed.

You can now try connect your laptop with the wireless router and ensure that your system sees the printer and try to print.

I believe you should be able to print.

Take care.

Netgear wgt624 wireless router installs through wizard up to step 3 and then stops. the computer is a dell inspiron 6000 laptop.


I never use the software supplied with the router, you don't need it. Google "let windows manage wireless" and you'll find many walkthroughs.

Which is best to buy? dell inspiron or studio?


Studio 15 vs XPS M1530

We specced a Studio 15 for $1457 on the Dell site (the official starting price is currently $1,149), to get it closer on paper to Dell's XPS M1530. We also specced an entry level XPS M1530 for $1798.

We're not entirely convinced the $300 step up to the XPS M1530 is a must.

Major differences are processor and graphics. On our Studio 15 we have Intel's Core 2 Duo P8400, vs the T8300 on the XPS M1530. The P8400 has a lower clock speed at 2.26GHz chip vs 2.4GHz for the T8300, and has 3MB cache (same as the XPS). On the other hand, the P8400 is a 25watt chip, vs 35W for the T series, so in theory it's more battery efficient.

The Studio 15 is also on the new Centrino 2 platform, and has a 1066MHz FSB, vs 800MHz for the XPs.

The other major difference is graphics. The entry level Studio 15 gives you the choice of either Intel's integrated graphics (4500MHD), the better choice for battery life, or 256MB Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3450. The XPS eschews integrated graphics in favour of 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT.

Both notebooks come with internal DVD combo drives, though there is a Blu-Ray option on the entry level XPS. The XPS also has an integrated mobile broadband option, which wasn't mentioned on our Studio 15.

The Studio 15's Centrino 2 platform and solid spec stack up well against the entry level XPS M1530. It seems the XPS' advantages here are mostly in terms of its sleeker design, and slightly lighter weight (2.62Kg vs 2.77Kg for the Studio 15).

Studio 15 vs Inspiron 1525
We also configured a top end Inspiron 1525 for comparison. Our spec included Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 (same as the XPS), the same 1440x900 scren as the XPS, 3GB RAM (same as Studio 15), and 320GB HDD (same as Studio 15). Bluetooth and wireless n were add-on modules, and there was no dedicated graphics option, only Intel's older generation X3100.

With the older Centrino platform, older graphics, and without the LED screen, our Inspiron 1525 spec came to $1527 - actually more than the Studio 15.

In this comparison, the Studio 15 stacks up as the better buy, and it's also solid value against the more expensive XPS. If you're looking for a solid mid-range laptop, we recommend you place the Studio 15 on your shopping list.

I hope this helps to make your choice.

I have been using a dell inspiron but its gone


Dell Studio XPS will have the high end gaming capability you want, and a fairly reasonable price.

Five computers networked with Linksys WRT320N router. Operating systems: Win 7.0 on 3 computers (two hardwired)(one laptop - wireless), Snow Leopard 10.8 on 1 (wireless), and XP on one (wireless). Also...


Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

Hello, I got a Dell Inspiron mini 10 for christmas. and i can be on my home wireless network. then it will suddenly drop signal and i wont be on the internet any more. what's wrong with it?


hi Power off your router and wait about 45 seconds then plug in the power to the router again, restart your dell mini and see if the connect gets more stable. do you have any other wireless pc's in the house? if so do they work fine? if you dont have any other wireless pc's try to get a friend to come over with a laptop and see how their connection is to your network... that will definitely isolate if you have a router issue or a PC issue. keep in mind if you have other pcs in the house and they are hardwired into the router, they will not exhibit the connection loss that wireless pcs connected to the router will experience.


hope this helps!

What is LiteOn Modem DP/N 0H9379. Is this a wireless modem?


It's just a regular modem, LiteOn is name brand, just like Conexant. Also, modems are used for dialing on a land line, and must be connected or hardwired to a land line, there is no such thing as a wireless modem, however there are modems that can communicate with computers through wireless receivers, but they are not considered wireless modems, they're considered and called wireless capable modems. These are generally found in high end office fax machines.
