Question about Dell Wireless 2350 Router

Dell 2350 router configuration problem

I have a dell 2350 router that was working properly for some time. I use it with my Inspiron 6400 laptop. After installing different types of virus proectection several problems began to arise, not being able to access the internet via wireless being one. A so-called computer-savvy person thought he "fixed" my internet problem by I believe doing a system restore months ago, and we have not been able to access the wireless since. I tried re-installing the router and every time the compter goes through the installation process, it ends with unable to configure router (failure). Please help!! thanks

    Thanks for your quick response. Yes, the ip is auto and I am able to connect directly to the internet but not by using my router, even if plug the cables through it. I have to connect directly from my computer to the modem. thanks

    In that case the problem is for sure at the router section, as you already mentioned. Have you tried to reset the router (or even better to restore at factory defaults?

Just to understand your problem your laptop is working properly when plugged directly to the power cord but not when running only on battery? Then it sounds like you need to replace the battery.
thank you,

YOu can try system restore, think of the possible time where your computer was working properly without hussel then that will be your restoration point, or better try to back up your files and do tjhe factory image . Since this is a DELL computer pressing CTRL+F11 will do the factory default setting of your system that is why it's highly recomended to back-up files first before doing this.

DELL LAPTOP INSPIRON 6400 MY LAPTOP BATTERY IS SHOWING STATUS ( UNKNOWN ) ON WINDOWS & ON BIOS IT SAYSS BATTERY NOT INSTALLED


Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

Wireless internet dell inspiron 6400


Things you can do to try and improve the connectivity are:
1. Update the system BIOS to the latest version
2. Update the wireless driver to the latest version (Both are available at support.dell.com)
3. Try a different channel for wireless on your router (Most default to channel 6, so try 1 or 11)
