Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

Trying to connect a netgear wireless router.

I have followed the installion instructions, checked wiring and set-up, but
still cannot get it to work, it used to work but I had a problem with the
internal battery no holding a charge, had to replace battery, at about the
same time lost wireless, went back to wired, thought router went bad.
I just purchased a new one but same problem, could it be the wireless
option board installed in the laptop? I don't know what else to do.

It's most likely a glitch with the wireless driver. Uninstall the wireless driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the wireless card and reinstall the drivers. This should clear it up, if not let me know.

The CD is not available for installation is it necessary? I have all of the cable if the Yellow cable connects to the cable router what does the white cable on the wireless router connect to. Thank...


If the cables supplied have RJ45 connectors then they are used for connecting and configuring the wireless settings in Netgear router and to connect the Netgear to the DSL modem foe Internet access.
Most likely the color of the cables is not important.
To configure the wireless settings, connect a cable from one of the LAN ports (not the WAN/Internet port) to the LAN port on your computer. You may remove this cable after configuring the wireless settings if you want to connect to the Netgear by wireless only. You need to connect other computers to the Netgear's LAN port with a cable if they do not have wireless cards installed in these computers.

The other LAN cable is used to connect the Netgear WAN/Internet port to the DSL modem so you computers can connect to the Internet via the Netgear router.

Follow these instructions to configure the Netgear router.

Cannot connect to internet without hard wire from router to compu


It does sound like you may need to upgrade firmware. Not sure what OS you are running as Netgear is still in the process of updating Vista firmware. Anyway here is the URL you need:

http://www.netgear.co.uk/product_support.php

You might like to try:

1. Disable Windows Firewall

2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.

3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.

Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.
