Question about Computers & Internet

I have a inspiron 1505 laptop. I use it connected to a cable modem to access the internet. All of a sudden it has stopped connecting to the internet. I have checked and replugged all connections and restarted several times and it still doesn't work. All lights are green except on cable modem box except for PC connection. RCN tech support said I need to reinstall NIC card....does this just go bad? Can you help?

My Dell Inspiron 560 suddenly stopped connecting to internet through cable-modem.


Onboard adaptor hardware failure? Or is it missing Drivers?
Wireless adaptor - did you install drivers for adaptor? Did you check that WiFi on the adaptor is switched on?


On a side note: I've found that USB 2.0 Wireless N adaptors are the best for connectivity, as they have their drivers on the adaptor, are fully plug and play (Vista/7/8 and even some models on XP). I recommend Transcend (brand name).

To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network or wireless card and install the LAN or wireless driver.
1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider.
2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem
3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions.
4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done.
5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet. If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

Hello, I have Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop and wireless Internet doesn't connect. I see the wifi light is ON and I see in Internet connection it shows my profile as connected. But if i browse internet does...


Please connect your computer directly to your DSL / Cable modem and check if your internet is working fine, if not turn off your modem and restart after a minute or two.

Now check again if the internet is working by directly connecting your laptop to your modem. if it is not working, contact ISP. if it is working, turn on your router and check if your wireless connection is working.

If you wireless connection is still not working, please check if you have plugged the modem to the internet / WAN port behind your router.

Also try logging to your router page (refer to manual for procedure) and try changing the wireless channel.

I have a wireless modem installed in my Dell Inspiron 1545 and it stopped working two months ago. Is this because the connection with whomever I was getting it from has gotten off the internet? Or is it...


If the modem will still scan and look for available connections there is probably nothing wrong with it. It sounds like whoever you were stealing internet access from got smart and encrypted their signal.

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.
Thanks, Gary

If you have some software provided by your ISP. Could be on a CD, then try to install it.
Else
Contact your ISP and they will provide you with gateway, and provide you settings which are required to access internet. Only your ISP can provide you these settings.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.
