My dell inspiron 1545 cannot connect to internet as it says i have no network adapters installed. How do i do this


Hi Anon
Your laptop should come with an Ethernet connection as well as wireless connections, try making a wired connection via your Ethernet port, these are usually more reliable than wireless connections.
When I have experienced these sort of problems it is usually because of a missing driver.
Check that you have the proper drivers for your internet connections installed, these should come on a disk that is supplied with your laptop.
Finally check this link for Microsoft's official network trouble shooter.

I have a older Toshebia laptop with a wireless lan card that i'd like to update. Can I just download a driver update to apply to the Toshebia rather than buying a new card? Trying to get on-line?


Hi, In this case if you would like to upgrade the performance of your wireless card like to use a wireless connection with better signal strength or signal range then you would need to to purchase a wireless card to upgrade from the existing one however if you are looking to have the performance of the internet connection improved then all that you would need to do is update the wireless card drivers.
Thank you for your time.

I have a USB broadband for my internet. I got it from my service provider, certainly for a fixed pay per month. However the signal is so slow in spite of the internet speed of 2 mbps because of poor signal...


You can't connect the any antenna you bought to your PC. Normally, any Wireless Boardband router/modem whether it is cable or USB connection, the antenna is usually built-in or with an external appendage sticking out from the Router/modem. You have to check with your ISP whether they have any alternative to boost the signal to your wireless modem.

If they coverage to your area is no good, look for another ISP which have much excellent band coverage.

Hope it herlps.

Internet Explorer cannot display the web page


Hi there.
You need to reset the the wireless router and the modem, to do this just pull the power from the back of them for 2 minutes, don't power them off from the wall.
After the 2 minutes is up plug the power back in and wait for another 2 minutes for them go through the boot procedure. After that try to connect again.
If it still doesn't connect post back.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

There are many possibilities that you are unable to connect to internet.

Can you check your internet explorer is not in offline mode? in IE goto File->Work Offline must not be ticked.

Open command prompt, and type "ping yahoo.com" and press enter, you will see the % rate of dropping whether is connected to internet or not will tell too. Write me what do you see in the command prompt.

Note: It will be good if you can call me over the phone and explain in details to solve your problem quickly.
