Yellow Triangle Not Going


First, try shutting down each device, wait 20 seconds and try again. If it was working with this configuration, it should continue to work.

Second, I always suggest that in Device Manager, all network cards, wireless cards, and/or USB hubs have the properties changed to NOT "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". If the computer turns off the device, some device stay off.. it might be possible to goad them into restarting, but I wouldn't want to do that repeatedly.

Hello

more information is needed to answer your problem.

Is this a laptop? Brand and model please? Also do you have a wireless router in the house? Has anything been done to it yet?

Do you know the name of the network you should be connecting to?

Dimension e520 - disconnected computer to get it repaired. Now trying to hook everything back up. Have wireless in the house, but can't get on the internet. Says needs to be hooked up to local area...


components of a home network include some kind of service (broadband or dial up) a modem, a router (wire or wireless) and computers.

If the computers are wireless, you use a wireless router. You can mix wire and wireless, obviously..

If you do this, the routers should be peer to peer (dont use the up link on the downstream device. ) One device must be plugged into the modem ... on that device, use the uplink.

If you are looking for a software package to manage your network magic, free to download and evaluate, After the free period you pay $ or continue to use the package but with fewer features.

NM is excellent with diagonostics, device sharing, security and tacking intruders as well as a lot of other things. I use the paid pro version.

Thanks for posting your question on FixYa.com

Connect two computers together


Hi,

Technically, yes. Both computers should have an Ethernet port (LAN), a crossover networking cable, peer to peer networking using static IP add, and Internet Connection Sharing on the PC with the Wireless Internet Connection. If by chance the PC with the Internet access is already using its Ethernet port, a second NIC could be installed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SETTING UP WIRELESS NETWORK AT HOME


Yes your computer based on your model number should be able to support a wireless router.

Now... you did not specify if this is or is not a second computer that is trying to access the router which is hooked up to another computer and modem. If you are trying to access it you will need a wireless nic adapter installed on the Dell. To access the router. Please comment on what the case may be in your situation.
