I have a dell optiplex gx520,it is hooked up to wireless connection and it's showing that the signal is good,but IE won't let us view webpage......
can you check if have a valild IP address?
1. Start > RUN > type in "cmd"
2. On the command prompt windows (black DOS window),
> type "ipconfig" > hit Enter
> you should have a valid IP address (something like 192.168.x.x)
• if yes, then try to ping a website
• if no, (you should see somthing like 169.254.x.x), check your wireless settings again.
**good signal doesnt mean that you are connected, it could be a conflict with wireless encryptions too..**
3. to perform PING
> on the CMD screen (back DOS based window), type "ping (space) google.com"
> you should see ping statistics, something like "packets sent=4 received=4 lost=0"
• if 0% lost > your connected to the internet
• if 100% lost > you have no connection
> again check your wireless again
4. If you can Ping and you can't still view webpages using IE here's what I suggest
• Optimize your browser
-delete temporary internet files and cookies
4a.1 Open Internet Explorer
4a.2 Click "Tools" (the icon that looks ike a cogwheel / gear; usually at the upper right corner of internet explorer)
4a.3 Click "Internet Options"
4a.3 Click "Delete" under the General Tab Screen
4a.4 Restart Internet Explorer
• Reset Internet Explorer to factory settings
4b.1 Open Internet Explorer
4b.2 Click "Tools" (the icon that looks ike a cogwheel / gear; usually at the upper right corner of internet explorer)
4b.3 Click "Internet Options"
4b.4 Click on the "Advanced" tab
4b.5 Click on "RESET"
4b.6 Restart Internet Explorer
Hopes this Helps
