Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network


Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Maybe this will help?

Check the router settings, if the router is set to only use 802.11N wireless it won't pick up a computer that is using 802.11G or 802.11B wireless.

Good luck

Have bought Belkin 802-11g router for our laptop. Computer uses MS vista. Disc that came with router is not compatible with vista. Am not technical with computers at the best of times. So... how the hell...


any router or disc should be compatible with any version of windows, if you mean the wireless reciever/dongle, the go here for drivers

http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatSectionView.process?Section_Id=204037

If you do mean the router, then connect to your laptop using a lan cable supplied with the router, then you can get into the router by opening internet explorer, the type in the web address, either 192.168.2.1, or 192.168.0.1, i forget which it is.

This will bring up the password and user name, which is in the manual and then enter your isp's dial up details

Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.

I have heard of Nero not being compatible with Vista, but not XP. Are you positive you are running XP and not Vista? If you are sure you are on XP, make sure it is up to date by running your windows update. I cant' understand why our page would come up when you click on the Nero link tho.
