Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.
HI! all your computer is connected except for one, you are connected to to the local network but cant get an internet connection, I dont see any problem with your wireless connection bcoz you are connected to the lan, check the security settings of your browser on your windows vista, go to internet option and security, lower it down to medium security, so that you can access the internet or try using other browser like firefox or google chrome.. check your firewall settings as well on your windows vista..
make sure the modem box is connected to the INTERNET port of the wireless N router. and the desktop to any of the regular Ethernet ports on the back of the wireless N router. Also try replacing the Ethernet cable that is connecting the desktop to the wireless N router. Then check the IP address of the desktop computer - to do that, go to the command prompt by clicking on Start. Run, then type CMD and hit OK - on the black screen type IPCONFIG - the IP address usually starts with 192 if you have a router - try to ping a website from the command prompt by typing PING www.yahoo.com then press enter - if able to get the word reply 4 times, it means the computer is connected to the iinternet.. it's just that there's something blocking the connection - if there's 4 replies, check if there's a security software installed on the computer for ex Norton, try disabling it temporarily and see if you can get online - if there's no reply on the PING test, and you just got request timed out or host unreachable, double check the TCP/IP settings on the computer, make sure it's set to Obtain IP Address Automatically and Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically - to check TCP/IP settings on the computer, if you have xp, go to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections then right click on Local Area Connection and click Properties, look for Internet Protocol TCP/IP , just double click on it and from there you will be able to see the status..
open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.
Most desktop computers do not come standard with wireless connectivity, and the 530s is no exception. To connect to the internet, you will need either an ethernet cable to run between the computer and the DSL box, or a wireless card, which can be installed inside your computer, allowing you to access wireless networks.
Install the wireless adapter to the laptop and then search for wireless connections. Find yours and connect. If this is not what you are having trouble with, or this did not solve your problem Tell me and I will give you other troubleshooting tips.
Who do you have for a internet provider? You may have to call your internet provider & give them your MAC address on your router so it will be reconized on their end. A router let's you connect more than 1 computer to the internet. You installed the software? What light don't come on?
is it only website you cannot go to ? or can you not connect to the internet at all ? What system are you using desktop/laptop? connecting via modem? router? dial up? wireless or ethernet ? Was this computer on the internet before and now will not connect, or is this the first time setting up connection?
