Dell :: Dimension 2400 - Error 720 - Unable To Connect To Internet

May 1, 2005

She has a Dell Dimension 2400, Service Tag 2VG3341 running Win XP Home with Service Pack 2.

At startup we get a message from Norton A/Virus 2003 - Symantec cannot scan your email address, because your network is not properly configured.

Canceling this message and trying to connect to the internet using the Dial –up connection gives this message:

Error 720: A connection to the remote computer could not be established. You might need to change the network settings for this connection.

I have checked the Network Properties as per Windows Troubleshooter, but cannot find anything unusual.

I have also ran the Dell Diagnostic CD, but these tests have are all clear.

The Windows firewall is also disabled

When I try to enable it I get the error message –

Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service?

After clicking on “Yes” A dialog box shows “Starting the Windows ICS” Then comes the message “Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall /ICS Services”

Dell Dimension 4300 - How To Secure Windows ME System Connected To Internet

May 26, 2013

I am about to re-install Windows ME on an old Dell Dimension 4300. The computer is connected to the internet via a 2Wire 3600HGV DSL modem/router.

Do I need a software firewall? Or is the router sufficient? Is antivirus software necessary if I don't download anything? It will be part of a local LAN, so I don't want to jeopardize any of the other PCs on the home network.

NOTE: I'm looking to run some older (non-DOS) computer games that don't run well (or at all) on XP and newer systems.

NOTE 2: When I say 'secure', I'm not looking to actively browse the web on the machine. I was curious as to what risks I be facing if I simply had this PC connected to my local network (and thus the internet).

Dell :: 2400 Wi-Fi Can Connect To Router But Not Internet

Feb 20, 2013

the 2400 and Wifi though I was unable to find anything specific enough for my scenario.I'm trying to connect my Dell 2400 Desktop to wireless internet using a Wifi USB...It is able to connect to the Router, but unable to connect to the internet. I've gone and downloaded the suggested drivers for the desktop, though still having the same issue. In the bottom right corner of the taskbar it will show a strong connection to the router, though I have a LAN connection that says " Local Area Connection: A Network Cable Is Unplugged" and it lists the connection through Broadcom. Here is the relevant information I have (judging from what previous posts have looked for).First Up, the Wifi USB I'm using is a NetGear WNDA3100V2 GenieI've gone an done the ipconfig, and tried pinging sites, though the pings timed out and returned nothing. The results of the ipconfig are:

Dell :: Dimension E310 / Cannot Connect To Internet

Aug 24, 2012

My (home desktop Dell Dimension E310) other computer had a virus that flatlined the machine.  I reinstalled the operating system from the discs provided by DELL.  Now, I can't connect to my DSL.  The browser wont see the http:/ ActionTec router.  It's plugged directly into the computer via ethernet cable.  this laptop is receiving signal from the wireless portion of that router, so there has to be a signal to the computer (it was working earlier this morning prior to DELL disc reinstall).

Dell :: Dimension 8400 - Parity Check / Memory Error And System Halted

Oct 15, 2004

I'm trying to connect my new Dell Dimension 8400 (3.0Ghz/512Mb/XPsp1) to my home wireless network.  I installed two diiferent PCI adapter cards in my one available PCI slot -- an older D-Link (11b) and a brand new Netgear (11g) (which Dell Sales assured me is compatible).  Both cards  detected  my Netgear wireless router and provided an excellent internet connection, so I'm assuming they were seated properly.  The problem is that every time I shut down the system I get the blue screen of death with the following message:
-Hardware Malfunction
-NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error
-The System has halted
The system runs and shuts down perfectly when the PCI cards are removed.  D-Link and Netgear Support technicians told me I have to contact Dell, but Dell Support doesn't seem to have an answer for me.  Which wireless PCI adapter cards are truly compatible with Dell hardware?

Home Network :: Clear Operating System Firewall

Sep 16, 2012

I am redoing my homes networking and I am looking for a firewall. I heard that you can install clear os on a server and use it as a firewall and a dhcp server. So i was going to install it on a rack in my server cabinet. does the server need to have a wan port and a lan port? Or how does the server get connected? So, so far its the cable modem into the clear os firewall and then into my switch. Is is possible to use the clear os server as the dhcp server for the whole house? From the switch I am going to connect the rest of my servers, and the rest of the house. I was going to connect two wireless routers for my house. Would that work with the clear os server?

Dell :: Dimension 4600 Not Connecting To The Internet?

Jun 17, 2012

My  ethernet was working fine when I shut down my computer then all of a sudden it rebooted and gave me a blue screen.  I rebooted it and it started but then it was not able to connect to the internet.  The pci adapter driver was not there.  I reinstalled it and it still would not connect.  I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, changed the ethernet cord for a new one and tested the new cord on a different device with no problem but stil cannot connect.  It says network cable is unplugged.  This happened before and the dsl technician was able to get it to work again unfortunately I have no idea how but it had something to do with the configuration.

Dell :: Dimension 3000 - Cannot Dial Into Internet

Feb 22, 2012

I use a Dimension 3000 desktop. I cannot dial in to my ISP (Juno). Each time I try, it responds "can't dial in".  I checked the connection, that's ok. I checked the phone line and that's ok. A box pops up that says "system service not working go to Help & Support"  When I try to go to Help & Support, a box pops up "system service not working". 

This all began after I used an AVG PC Tuneup.  Since then the bottom line colors changed. For example, where START was green with white letters and the windows colors symbol; it is now WHITE with Black letters only.  Where bottom line across was blue, now it too is WHITE. 

I can pull up WORD, Games,etc. but am unable to dial in to get to internet.

Dell Dimension L733r / Unable To Connect To Wireless Network?

Mar 19, 2012

I have a Dell Dimension L733r with a Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Adaptor. When I start the computer, it connects to the wireless network immediately. As I go through the day, all of a sudden I start getting "Unable to Connect to Wireless Network". I click on the popup and then click on repair. It goes through it's procedures and eventually reconnects the network. Sometimes it says "Connection Very Good" other times "Low" or even "Very Low". Several minutes later, it will do the same thing again and I go through the same procedure again. This might happen several more times then it will be okay. There are days where it never happens at all and then there are days where it happens every 10 minutes or so.

Dell Dimension 9100 With XP SP3 - No Internet Connection After Thunderstorm?

Jul 5, 2011

Around 2 weeks ago, there was a storm in my city that completely shut down all the power for around 5 minutes. After we got the power back, I connected all the wires in the router again and tested the connection on my desktop. The internet was not connecting at all. Every few seconds a message that says "A network cable is unplugged" pops up and then it goes to Acquiring network address.I thought maybe the storm damaged the card. My father called IT Support from his office and told me to check for a light blinking next to the ethernet port at the back of the PC. IT said that if the light was flashing, then it wasn't a problem with the network card.I changed the Link Speed to every different option. No luck. I tried the Repair command. It shows up with a message saying that the IP address couldn't be renewed. I even updated all the drivers.I'm at a loss here.It's a Dell Dimension 9100 with Windows XP SP3.
