Wireless network connection not working


For some reason known only to Dell, the default setting for the Inspiron 6000 built-in wireless network adapter is 'off' or 'disabled.'

If you used Dell's restore disk to reinstall XP, the radio button is turned off. Go to control panel/system/device manager, find the wireless LAN device, right-click on it and choose 'Properties.' Under 'Wireless radio' check 'on' or 'enabled.'

Go back to Windows network setup wizard and go back through the steps using the 'restore network connection' button. You should be good to go.

There's an EXCELLENT network manager from Cisco named 'Network Magic' that takes all the guesswork out of setting up your internet connection. I highly recommend it. They offer a free trial and I think may even have a 'Lite' version that helps with simple connections without the bells and whistles of the full blown program. I'm not sure about that, but I can't tell you how much time it's saved me troubleshooting and setting up networks for my clients.

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

How do i use my built in wireless connection to connect to the internet,please.


make sure that your wireless or wifi light is on,you may try to press Fn and F2 at the same time to enable or swith on wireless..if wifi is already on,try going to start >> control panel >> network connections,go to wireless network connection and double click it, it will give you a list of wireless network,or right click and then "view available wireless network", if you get an error that windows cannot configure wireless connection,go to start >> all programs >> loo for either dell wlan utility or intel pro wireless, by opening that app,it will also search for wireless network in range,just double click on the network name where you want to connect and you sould be connected provided that "wireless network" doesnt have encryption like wpa or wep key..if your connecting to your home network,you should have wireless router at home and wireless is enabled on the router.
