Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.

The model of your laptop which you have specified carries with it a wireless receiver: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 (802.11 b/g) Internal Wireless adapter. Other devices may be 802.11n compatible. So check the wireless mode in the router. Also make sure that the network name is also being broadcasted by the router. Finally check for any wireless devices like cordless phones, microwave ovens, etc.

Hope that this will help you resolve your query in the best way they can... Thanks 4 asking,

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 connection


Did you change your wireless SSID and channel? Better to enable encryption too. If this problem never happens when you're connecting to other wireless networks you might as well update or reload the firmware/software of your router.
