This can happen when both the wireless router and the laptop are powered up together. The laptop boots up before the wireless router can issue the laptop with an IP address. When you click Repair the LAN card requests a new IP address from the router and then the laptop can connect to the Internet.

I get this problem sometimes and then I have to click Repair.

Try leaving the wireless router powered up or power up the wireless router first. I suggest rebooting the wireless router approx. once a week, the wireless router will then be issued with a new IP address from your ISP, this makes it difficult for hackers to hack into your wireless router/network.

I'm trying to set up wireless connection to Dell Inspiron1300 after a terrible loss! says no driver but can't find installation CD


Since there is no driver, go to support.dell.com and follow the directions to enter your service tag, then you can locate a list of drivers for your computer, most likely you will find a updated driver for your wireless. I am thinking that you might have eiter an intel wireless card since Dell tends to sell a lot of them.

Dell Inspiron 6000 with network card Intel/Pro Wireless 2200 BG


So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Good luck

Wireless internet connection


First step - Enable your wireless hardware by switching it on some models have a separate switch or with the keyboard

Second step - Check your wireless zero configuration service under adminitration tools ->services is running or its managed by another software supplied along with your laptop - enable it. one only works at a time.

third step - go to your network connections choose wireless connection and right click properties double click on Internet protocol TCP/IP and see there is any IP manually inserted change it to automatically obtain IP address

Four step - Open your Internet Explorer and enjoy wireless internet.

Note. Some laptop required to create profiles prior to connect to wireless but from your post i hope your laptop is not one of them
