Question about Dell Inspiron™ 600M PC Notebook
I am having trouble connecting to a LAN line. My two roommates with a mac and an hp both have no problems but I cannot. I have tried several things but don't really have a clue as to where to begin or what I did. Can you give me some starter steps to begin with. I am sure the connection and cable are good because my roommates use them so it is my driver or settings. Thanks
It usually helps with these questions if you mention what vsn. of windows .. and did it EVER work ??
I will assume XP ... go to 'start', 'settings' 'network connections'.
If you have no entry under Local Area Connection, then run the New Connection Wizard.
If you have a Local Area Connection, double click to open it, in General tab, select Properties and make sure 'Client for Microsoft Networks' and 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' are present and selected (ticked).
Double click 'Internet protocol' to open it and make sure in General tab that 'Obtain an IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server address automatically' are ticked.
Launch MSIE (or Firefox) .. if it comes up with a 'Dial the internet' window then you need to go into MSIE Tools, Internet Options, Connectuons tab and set 'Never dila a connection' then click on LAN settings and make sure everything except 'Automatically detect settings' is clear.
Good Luck !
