Question about Dell Computers & Internet

WHERE IS THE WIRLESS?

I purchased a dell laptop. It is supposed to have wireless internet. I have a verizon wireless modem and I have used it for another wireless computer.

My Dell does not find any wireless network. Also, I had a computer completely flashed and it WAS wireless, but I get the same thing on it.

Does the wireless modem in the computers have to be configured or something?

What Wireless modem will work in Dell's Inspirion XPS M140


Hi,

I recommend Netgear or Linksys wireless routers/modems.

They work with just about any ISP (internet service provider) and are very reliable.



Regards.

Want to get on internet with my lap top via wireless what card do i need for the inspirion 8100


first of all you need to check with your internet provider to see what modem you can use. a wirless 802.11g card (the farthest range) if your provider has a wirless modem i would get it from them. and a wirless modem/router. i use bellsouth wirless dsl and bought the equipment from them. if you have a wirless modem/ router already then you just need the card and configure it.

Need help with wireless router and wireless verison card.


You need to bridge your modem first before you can use your netgear wireless router. You can reconfigure your netgear without bridging your modem and it will work, but the connection will not be as stable. You'll only need your Verizon password and username if your connection type is PPPoE. If your connection is DHCP, you don't need your username and password anymore, but you may have to ensure that your connection type inside the netgear router is set for DHCP as well. If you're a PPPoE, then you don't have to worry, even if you don't know your username and password, you can give Verizon a call and they will reset your password and give you your username after you've verified your information with them so you don't have to worry about anything. Whatever issue it is, they can help you with it. I suggest you have them bridge your modem first before using your netgear. If I know the brand and model number of your modem with verizon I can definitely give you instructions here on how to bridge your modem properly. Just let me know.

Inspiron 6400 wirless connection


HI
If the browser shows working offline and wireless is connected fine then it could be an issue where work offline is checked in the browser.
In internet explorer 6 its found on File in the menu, if work offline is already checked, check it again to remove the check mark and then try, if its internet explorer 7 its found on tools, the same steps and in firefox under file,
Also try this step as well, if its internet explorer go to tools-internet options-and in internet options-go to connections tab-there is dial up and networking box-remove the dial up connections from the box-and check the one never dial a connection

also check the firewalls and antivirus programs, post your results.


thank you

Wireless connection lost


Wirless and modem systems both are different, there is no connection between them.

If you were using your modem for internet access then you should chek-out your modem and phone-lines etc. Wirless will not effect.

verify your modem driver is installed correctly and check the settings.

Thanks
