Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
I go to a High School that has Wireless computer and my laptop is equiped and i need to take it Friday March, 28,2008 for an assignment and would like to connect but i'm worried about my IP address. What do i need to do?
Usually, in a school, even to access wireless, it is going to require an encrypted password. If you have "SO CALLED HACKERS" in your school saying they have penetrated the system, they are probably just all talk. I wouldn't be too concerned with your "IP Address" because it will be assigned a new one upon connection to the wireless system at school. The main number to be concerned with would be your MAC address which is harder to retrieve than any temporary IP.

Hello, You won't need to do anything. When the connection is made from your laptop to the wireless signal at school, an IP address will be assigned dynamically(automatically). Just turn it on and if it doesn't connect within 20-30 seconds, click start, control panel and then network connections. Follow directions and it will connect for you. Hope this helps, Good luck..

Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
