Greetings,

Answer the following :

1. Laptop make & model.
2. Do you have a wireless router ? make & model.
3. Do you have another computer ? Is it using the same router to access the Internet ?
4. Your Internet Provider ? (If they are the one who configured the router, phone them & ask for the SSID & password of your wireless router), write it down.

Computer has no ip address after I restored it please help daughter is riving me crazy.


First thing you want to do, is to make sure all the network cables are plugged into the correct devices such as your router, modem and the computer. if all is running well (everything is blinking with lights) go to your computer, open the control panel, select network connections and open it. Right click on the Local Area Connection and right click on it and select repair. Wait for about 2 mins. After that restart your PC. Try to get on the internet. If you are still not able too, you will need to go to the command prompt, you can do this by selecting start then run, type in 'cmd' and enter. You will see a windows that pops open, it should see somthing like c:\Documents and settings\john> or somthing like this. type in 'ipconfig /all' you will hopfully see a ip address and alot of other information. the ones you will need to look at is to see if your dhcp is enabled if it is then this will give you a auto ip address if it is not, you will need to get a static address from your isp. You will try to see if you can communicate with the IP address by typing in 'ping ' then the ip address. for example 'ping 192.168.1.23' if you have not packets lost, then that is a good thing. then try to ping your gateway, this will be your router ip address. you can find this ip 'Default Gateway' if you are able to ping this, you should be able to go online fine. 570081d.tif

If you are still not able to fix this please let me know and i will be more then happy to help. keiffertech@techie.com

Wireless switch not working


Sometimes when you bootup and the error message = "wireless connection has limited or no connection", or has a red X on the wireless icon, it is because the router has not issued an IP address to the wireless card. Right click on the wireless connection and then click Repair.
If this doesn't work then reboot the router then the laptop, this should fix the problem

Verizon Westell 327G wireless connection problem


the best thing to do so that you can isolate the problem is to connect your computer first to the gateway using the ethernet cable. make sure first that connectivity is not an issue if you're using a wired connection. once that's done, try accessing the modem, 192.168.1.1 is the address for your westell. all this is while you're connected with a cable. it will be very hard to fix this issue if you're not wired connected able. check the ip address of your computer. it should start with 192.168.1.xx, any other ip address it will mean your computer is not connected to the modem. if it's a 192 ip address, check the ip add in your modem, it be a routable ip add. for example if you're isp provider is verizon, more often the ip address should start with a 71 to a 74. most likely it will be because you can go online using a wired connection. next thing you should check is your wireless settings in your modem. find out your connection type with you isp. if you have a dhcp or open pppoe, turning off and turning on again your modem will fix things, almost always. if you have a pppoe connection, you have to make sure you have the right username and password. after this, check the properties of your wireless connection by clicking on properties in the wireless network icon, check if you need a WEP key if its secured. sometimes changes in the properties of your wireless network is the problem. if this still doesn't work, there might be a defect with your modem, better call tech support for that. you might need to replace the modem. if you're still under warranty do it now because if not, you will have to buy a new modem if it's found that you have a defective modem.

Laptop cant connect wirelessly


Hey Charlie, If you re-installed your operating system you will need to get the wireless modem driver from your dell disk. For some reason they have not included the drivers in the windows software. If you can't find it then you can go on to the Dell site(obviously on another computer) and enter your service tag and get your drivers that way.

I hope this helps

Try changing the channel on the router. There may be too much interference on the current channel.
