Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Internet access from Windows Explorer 7

I am trying to set up a wireless link from my Dell laptop to a Belkin router.

On the Control Panel/ Network Connections page both the Wireless and Network icons ( I have a network cable connecting them) are shown as connected and working. However I cannot access them from Windows Explorer it will only try my existing dial up network which I have unplugged. How do I list my my wireless connection under Windows Explorer/Tools/Internet Options/Connections.????

You might need to disable the dial-up connection. You might also need to enable the two network connections, sometimes they are disabled upon setup by default? What operating system are you running?

Dell laptop will have a dell wireless application that will be controlling the wireless adaptor.
You can open that from Start - Programs (or all programs) - Dell - Dell wireless utility (or in some case intel proset utility). open that and you can use it to connect to your wireless network or you can disable it and allow windows to manage the wireless adapter.

If you have any issues in doing the same please reply to this post.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.

Go into Network connections in control panel and right click on the wireless network icon, then click on properties. In here change the settings so that Windows manages your wirless settings rather than the Belkin software, I find this normally works a lot better and more reliable. You should then be able to double click the wireless icon (Not the Belkin Icon) in the bottom corner of your screen and connect to your wireless network.

URL Filter Configuration


Ok, sounds to me like the security settings on your laptop for the wireless network card are configured in HIGH safety mode. The easiest way to resolve this is to:

1. goto control panel (start - settings - control panel)
2. open network connections
3. right click and select PROPERTIES on your wireless network connection
4. click on tcp ip (interent properties) double click it
5. goto advanced button (lower right hand side)
6. options tab
6. goto properties button for ip filter
7 uncheck (if checked) Enable ip filtering

that should fix ya up.

Dell Inspiron 6000 with network card Intel/Pro Wireless 2200 BG


So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck

Dell Inspiron 5100 Internet Access


Do you have your computer connected to your wifi network and your ethernet cable at the same time? Try having it connected to only one and see if that changes anything (ie, keep the wireless on and unplug the cable, or keep the cable plugged in and disable the wireless - if your laptop does not have a button/switch to turn off the wireless, you can do so by going to your network connections area from the control panel, right clicking on the wireless internet icon, and selecting disable.)
