I am having performance issues with network connectivity
My Dell M2300 is making my wotklife hell. I can't retain a connection to the network domain and I can't get access to the internet on a consistent basis. I can connect at times but it is very slow.
I use Windows XP SP3 and IE5. I have done a diskclean. Any ideas anyone?

As it is not specified here that you are facing problem
with Windows login password or domain password so, I request you to share about
it too. According to me if you are trying to connect (or already connected)
your laptop to any network then you need domain username and password. You can
get it from the network administrator. On the other hand if you are facing
problem with windows login password then you can reset it by using Windows
password recovery software or by some other tricks (I can tell you if you are
Isolate where the problem is: it could be the LCD display or the graphics circuit on the main board. Connect the VGA output of the laptop to an external monitor - one that you know is good. From the function keys, activate the VGA output of the laptop - it's suppose to switch between the LCD display or to the external monitor. Switch it to the external monitor. If the external monitor works, then you have a problem with the LCD display of the laptop.
Sounds like the laptop isn't seeing the network which is why the domain option would be missing. Turn off the laptop and then make sure the ethernet cable is plugged in snug. Unplug it and plug it back into the ethernet jack on your laptop.
Then turn the laptop on and it should recognize the network at that point and you'll see the domain option.
If you still don't see it then try hooking up another computer up to the cable. If that computer doesn't see the network then its a problem with the connection. If it does see the network then its an issue with the laptop, might be an issue with the ethernet jack on the laptop.
Ah this is an easy one, make sure the laptops MAC address (this can be found by going into the laptops command line and typing 'ipconfig /all') Then you need to go into Doman users and computers (active directory) and add that MAC address to the computers group. If this doesn't work...make sure your laptop is connecting through the same network. use the cmd line tool Ipconfig /all to find out the ip address of your server and your laptop. If your laptop's default gateway doesn't match that of your server's...you could be cross networking. Try the "ping" command like this go to the command line on your laptop and type Ping <ip address for server> if you can ping it, you can connect with it....also check your group policy that enables wireless connections.
Please make sure that all the cables are in good condition, if not replace them with high quality ones for better speed. Make sure that there are no hardware on software conflicts in the server and the client PC's. Run regular maintenance.
Have a look at this article which is on client performance tuning.
This is usually a computer trust issue, if the computer was previously used to logon to the network and has been rebuilt or had in problems it can have trust issues. First way would be to change the computer name and add the DNS Prefix for your domain. ex desktop.abc.com to desktop1.abc.com. when prompted it is best to use the domain admin or equivalent to make the change and then reboot.
hi.. so you are not able to see the networks at all,1st make sure that we are detecting the wireless network and that the drivers are installed in the computer follow these steps.. click on start,control panel,network and internet connection and then network connection. 2)under network connection you will see a conneciton that says wireless network connection. 3)right click and click on view wireless networks,once you are in this box if it says windows cannot configure then perform step number 5 and if you can see the network perform steps no 4. 4)you will probably see the network of you school,click on the netwokr name and you will see a tab that says connect,click on connect and if the network in your school is secured then it will tell you to put in the password which you can get by speaking with the network administrator..once connected it will tell you that you are connected and then try going online.. 5)if no networks are detected and says windows cannot configure,click on start,all progams,dell wireless and then click on dell wireless wlan card utility, 6)In this card utility you will see a that says general and under that tab you will see a box which will shows you the available networks then click on the network and then either you will have a connected button or cofigure button now depending upon the network it will either tell you to put the password or the network key once you do that the wireless should get connected and you should be able to go online now...
hope this steps will resolve the issue...Best of luck... let me know incase if you see a different screen..
Make sure your wireless workgroup/domain are the same as your wired network. If they are, you should reinstall the printer from control panel. Choose add network printer, choose the proper workgroup/domain, you should see the available printer, select it, it may need to download drivers and install them.
