A couple of things need to be done.
Install SP3 this is the latest service pack for XP.
Install the TCP/IP (Internet protocol)
Open Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on Local Area Connection - click on the box for Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and the click on Install.
Then reboot the computer.
You network should now work.
See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.
First, make sire the switch is in the right position...most of the the time when the switch is on the fron tof the laptop, "on" is to the right. If the switch is in the "on" position, then it is possible that the driver has gotten corrupt or is somehow missing. Try first to update the driver. Go to the control panel > Device Manager (in XP it is in System and then under hardware) scroll down the device manager and click on the + sign by the network adapters. Right click on the wireless adapter and choose update driver. Let windows go through the update and reboot, if this doesn't work, go back to the network adapters and this time right click on wireless adapter and choose uninstall. Reboot and when windows starts, it will recognise the hardware and install the appopriate driver for it. It would be better if you were connected to the internet by an ethernet cable for this, that way if the wireless is down, windows can search online through the ethernet cable and get a fresh driver....but if not it isn't totally necessary.
Hi there. If your using Vista or XP, what i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage"
and then "device manager", then click on the + sign next to "network
adapters" and right click on the wireless network and "un-install" the
device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless
card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system
tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again
There are several different LAN, wireless, & modem devices that are installed on the T40 series laptops. For example, if one of the network driver or modem driver doesn't work then install a different one. Make sure you download all the various device drivers for your model laptop and the XP version of those driver.
Check with your laptop's manual or specification sheet if it came with a built in wireless adapter. If it does, then you do not need to use a wireless adapter. All you have to do is to configure the wireless utility of your laptop to connect to your preferred wireless network.
You can also check Device Manager to check if there is a built in wireless adapter. Assuming you are using Windows XP - Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Look for Network Adapters. Check if there is anything under Network Adapters that says "wireless" or 802.11A/B or G. If there is, then again you do not need to install a wireless adapter.
Once you verified that there is a built in wireless adapter, just configure the wireless adapter utility to connect wirelessly to you preferred network.
