basically a friend of mine gave me his old dell inspiron 1300 because my other laptop died.
It was running really slowly, and still is, so I cleaned the registry, defragmented, all sorts of things, I also started to download updated drivers for the system. Since I downloaded the broadcom update my wireless has been utterly useless, it keeps disconnecting and reconnecting by itself, its really annoying. I guessed it could be the laptop not liking the update so i uninstalled it, but it still has the same problem.
We have other laptops and devices connected to the wireless so it's not that. oh! by the way here are any laptop details you might need.
System: Windows XP Home edition service pack 3 laptop details: Dell Inspiron ME051 Intel celeron M processor - 1.60ghz 504mb RAM
I cannot connect my Dell Inspiron 1300 through the NetworkManager "wired" connection, when I try to go direct to the cable modem. It fails to connect. If I connect the cable modem to my (linksys WRT54GS) wireless router, and then connect my laptop to a wired port in the router, it connects in seconds, successfully, This has happened to me 2 other times, when I tried to connect my laptop to a client's cable modem, because my client did not have a wireless router available, in their home. My wireless works fine. This has me perplexed. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and NetworkManager Applet 0.8, I've tried some things to see what is going on, such as "ifconfig" "dhclient" as well as modifying the "Auto eth0" parameters and adding my laptop's MAC address, etc.
My wife has a Dell Inspiron 1300 which crashed. I was able to start it again using the Dell Operating System Reinstallation CD for XP Professional but the wifi (wireless) does not work. Before the crash it had a working wireless connection. It appears that I need to reinstall a driver for it. How can I get a driver when I have no internet connection on that computer? I have tried loading on a flash driver from another computer, but it doesn't seem to transfer. What driver do I need and how can I get it to install on her computer?
My lap top and pc were both accessing internet fine. Now my laptop has the message windows cannot config. wireless connection. If you have enabled another prog. to manage this connection use that software. Then it says ifI want windows to config., start WZC service. I am a novice and don't understand any of this. I don't think I have done anything to enable another prog to manage the connection. I have tried reloading isp disc and making new network connection but to no avail. the little network logo has a red x constantly.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1300 which crashed, service tag . I was able to start it again using the Dell Operating System Reinstallation CD for XP Professional with SP1, that came with another computer. I then installed a Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 and Internet Explorer 8. However the wifi (wireless) does not work. I went to setup and assured that it is enabled. I assume that I have lost the driver for it. Before the crash it had a working wireless connection. I need to know what driver to install to make it operate. Setup indicates that my computer has a MiniPCI card 1370 Broadcom Corp.
Where can I find the drivers for my Dell TrueMobile 1300 PC Card....my Broadcom 440x 10/100 will not start the internet...heck, it won't even recognize it half the time an I bought it all as a set. I'm on a DELL INSPIRON 8600..
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) on a Dell Inspiron 560. I am using a DI-524 D-Link wireless router. I have an Acer Aspire One Net Book running Windows XP Home it is equipped with an internal wireless network adapter. I can connect/communicate with router and access the internet with no problems whatever. However, when I connect an external wireless network adapter e.g. Alpha AWUS036H I cannot get a connection when I disable my internal network adapter. I have also tried the Trendnet TEW-424UB USB external wireless network adapter and the symptoms are exactly the same.
I purchased my Inspiron N5050 4 months ago. On 1/17/13 my internet went down. My Internet provider replaced the router with a new one. Now my computer is giving me a message in the currently connected to "Unidentified Network, No internet access". Is shows that I'm connected in my "Wireless Network Connection, but not in my currently connected.
I have a Dell Inspiron 560 desktop pc--running Windows Vista--and Clear mode internet connect to an integral Ethernet connection (built into computer) and I cant connect to internet. When I try to connect it says it cant find hardware. Device manager shows a ethernat with a Realtex RTL8168 PCI E and driver but with a yellow question mark.
I have a Dell Inspiron 15R laptop. I can connect to the internet with excellent connectivity but it still shows "No Internet Access". I have been struggling since last 2 days to resolve this issue so have gone through various forums to find a solution but none worked. Here are the things that I have already tried:1. Restarted / Reset my modem.2. ipconfig / release and renew.3. Deselect IPv6.4. net stop and start for winhttpautoproxysvc and dhcp client.5. Turn off McAfee firewall.6. Reset network adapter settings.I can connect to internet in "safe mode with networking" but not in normal mode.In fact, I can connect to the same wi-fi using my smartphone. Somebody suggested me that it could be a dnschanger virus attack. I checked that also and it's not that virus.
I have a Dell Inspiron 580S, running on W7 64-bits, with a Broad com Netlink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet adapter.
I am not being able to connect to the internet either via wireless nor wired network. I have updated the network and BIOS drivers to the latest versions as suggested here, but the problem still persists. Other computers connected to the same network via wireless connection do have internet access without issues.
Im using a DSL wifi. Everytime I try to connect it says "Connected but no internet access with a yellow punctuation mark". When i tried to connect the Router cable directly to my DSL to my laptop the wifi works as well but when i unplug the router cable that connects to my laptop, the wifi shows same problem again with connection but no internet access. How did this happen coz i tried to use other device and it is connecting well. I even tried on my cellphone and it is fine too. But on my laptop it won't work anymore.
using a Dell Inspiron 1100, XP professional, which will no longer work wirelessly - D-Link DWL-G650 Wireless Cardbus Adapter. I am presently using it via an ether net connection. "Network Connections" indicates that I am connected, but I am unable to access any websites.
I am currently in Thailand and I have been using dozens of different wifi connections around Australia and South-east Asia without a problem for the last year. I moved into a new place yesterday and when I tried to connect, it has the little yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, over the wireless symbol on the taskbar. I tried the troubleshooter but it says turn the modem off an on, I don't think I can do this, I'll try and ask reception but I doubt they will let me.
No-one else at this place I am staying has had the same problem as me. The signal strength is "excellent", the wifi password is correct. I have windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron.
I am at my old place now, where the internet works. I downloaded the internet test thing from one of the stickies, I'll go and do that at my new place and post the results soon.
The wireless activates and finds wireless connections and auto connects with no problem but "No Internet Access".It seems it cannot retrieve an IP address from my local DHCP server. I am on a home network.I have already reset my router and other computers on my network are not having any problems getting connected, and I've also re-installed driver.Dell Wireless WLAN Card Uitilty reports "Pass" on all Hardware Diagnostics, and passes all Connection Diagnostics up to Gateway IP Ping.Link Status shows Gateway IP address not available, and Client IP as 169.254.13.90.Setting manual IP info on the wireless adapter to match my network does not work either.After manually setting the IP information on the adapter, IPCONFIG shows the IP info I entered, however, pinging the Client IP returns "General Failure"Inspiron 1720 running Win7 with Dell wireless 1505 draft 802.11n WLAN mini-card.
I have an Inspiron 1721 laptop and can no longer acces the internet unless I attach the ethernet cable from my wireless modem. In other words, I can no longer access the wireless internet from my laptop. I have talked with my internet service provider and the say the problem is the settings with the laptop itself because I can access the internet from my tablet computer.
I recently took my Dell Inspiron1545 out of sleep mode and my wireless internet connection no longer works.i have tried power cycling the 2-wire modem and the Cisco Valet router and resetting as well. I also have another laptop and xbox that use this network and are having NO issues in connecting and working perfectly fine.
The only device not working is the Dell laptop. I've tried removing the network profile, uninstalling the wifi driver and reinstalling after powercycling the computer and still nothing but limited connectivity only The WLAN utility has stated that the "Gateway IP Ping" has failed Now the laptop will connect to internet via LAN cable however will not to WiFi
I have attached the IPconfig spec sheet and hopefully somewhat can steer me in the right direction and get me back up an running.
My wife can't access the internet on her laptop, The computer is a Dell Inspiron 1750 with Windows 32 bit vista. I have the Internet plugged into the wire on the side of the computer, I am not using the wireless at the home. The wire going to the computer works on another computer for the internet.
I have a Dell inspiron running windows 7 (64) and it connects to the wireless router but doesn't get internet. All of my other devices, including another dell laptop, connect with no problems. I tried connecting it directly with an ethernet cable and it still didn't get internet. I've also tried turning off any firewalls.
I have had my dell inspiron e1505 since 2007. It has worked fine (minus having the motherboard replaced and having to reinstall my OS multiple times in the past). At the beginning of December, I moved to a new apartment and got Verizon internet. I have no problem connecting to the network, it says excellent strength. But my internet doesn't work. On the 'manage internet connections' page, there is a red X from network to internet. I've even tried connecting with the ethernet cable and it still won't work!! Right now, I'm on my boyfriends HP laptop, connected to the same network and able to connect to the internet just fine.
I am having a problem with my Inspiron 1525. It connects to my home wifi network, but doesn't connect to the internet. The Windows says there is a problem with the router, but my housemates have no problem getting into the internet with their Macbooks. I have tried resetting the router (numerous times) and disconnecting from my network and reconnecting, but it doesn't work.
The laptop is about a month old. It all the sudden started doing this, I believe right after I uninstalled an ask.com toolbar that was installed on my Google Chrome browser by another program.
I set my power plan to high performance, and I configured the power management on my adapter so it wouldn't turn off in order to save power, but this did not fix the problem. My adapter does not have Antenna Diversity.

I have a two month old Inspiron 1525 laptop with a 1395 WLAN mini-card. My network adapter has disappeared from my computer. When I run the diagnostic on the Network, I get " computer does not have a network adapter installed and configured" What is going on Dell? I called the help desk and the condescending tech said that I had to pay 250.00! This is a two month old computer - Dell - stand behind your products!
I am having problems connecting to the internet. I've tried changing my security from WPA to WEP and back again. I've searched these forums for a solution and nothing has worked. I've changed my antenna output to Aux from Auto as one thread suggested, but no luck.
For a time, I could connect to my wireless BT Home Hub 2, but the range was pathetic (about 4 metres). I've tried connecting to my partners home wireless connection, and again, same problem. Now the connection is virtually nothing. If I am lucky enough to get a connection then it will be poor and usually fail within 2 minutes.
I've had my Dell Inspiron Mini 10v for nearly 3 months now. I wish I was brave enough to return it when I had the chance.People have commented that this could be a known issue. I don't know what the problem is. I've spoken to IT bods my office and nobody seems to know.
Inspiron n5030 notebook. It no longer connects to networks "completely"(wifi or through cord). When I attempt to get connection from my own home network, it says "Limited access" and doesn't allow me to go onto the internet.I've tried flushing DNS, releasing and renewing the IP and checked if everything was set on automatic regarding the notebook's IP and gateway. Even when checking things through ipconfig, I see no actual IP. Default gateway is shown blank.
I have an Dell inspiron 1564 with dell webcam central I been useing it a while now and had no problems with it untill one day I logged on and I go on webcam chat sites and as you know theres a button you click for your cam to turn on and useally a warning sign would appear saying would you like to allow this site to acces your webcam and I would click allow but now nothing appears and i click the cam sign and nothing happens just black I set the settings to Allow and always remember but nothing will work I was told to get rid of all my toolbars as they might of caughts the problem so I did and now i don't have any toolbars but it's still in not working I think its the McAfee secuirty I have a on my computer that is not allowing it but then i think why would it one day just stop it from allowing.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1720, that uses a 1300 wireless lan, that keeps crashing. Is there a fix for this, can I replace it with another wireless lan card? Whenever I first start the computer, I would get the error message saying your wireless card had stopped working.
I have a network in my home using Mac computers (2). I needed to buy a PC for internet schooling. I bought a Dell Latitude and a Linksys WPC54G notebook adapter. I set up the notebook adapter, get a connection with good signal strength but cannot access the internet. I am using Windows XP Pro and have called Linksys with no dice. I don't have a network bridge and don't appear to have a firewall.
ive read some of wat u said but my problem is that my wifi network goes well working then it goes to limited access when i try to fix it the screen freeze and i have to shut it down and then turn on....then it goes well working....idk wat is causing it to do so...sometime it does it every month or so and sometimes 5 times a day!
I have a recently rebuilt D600 running XP Prof XP3 full patched. The machine was a clean build on a new disk about 2 months ago and all has been working well (excepting the Fujitsu HDD which seems to be going bad as I type, but that's a different issue!).i was offer via Microsoft Update: "Dell driver update for Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card" 2 days ago (mid August 2009). This is a Dell supplied update distributed via MS. Also offered (and installed) at the same time was "Darfon - Other Hardware - Bluetooth Devices". Since installing these (and the installs reporting as completing correctly) I keep getting:Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller encountered a problem and needed to close.and Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller has encountered a problem and needs to close.rror dialogues. These pop up every 30 seconds or so and seem to be related to the Dell TrueMobile 1300 update.Looking in the Windows directory there is no uninstall directory for this update unlike the MS updates. So I now either need to:get the updates to work properly Remove the updates and get back to a working condition if you wonder why I applied the updates...why repair something that's already working...I have had Bluetooth sporadic connection issues with this laptop with a BT GPS unit. The same BT GPS unit works perfectly on a D610 but on this D600 after initial connection there can be repeated connection loss requring the BT GPS unit to be moved around, after which BT connection is re-established only to fail a while later. As the same GPS works without problem with the D610 my presumption has been the issue is a BT stack issue on the D600 BT implementation.
I have been using Dell Vostro-1320 laptop with Windows XP. It was running good. Recently I have installed the McAfee Internet Security software. But now I do not have internet access through this laptop although the network icon shows "connected". I have tried all the advice/solutions for such type of problem by doing Firewall off/on and changing adapter & network setting. I also updated all the drivers. But nothing works. It is notable that my other desktop is working properly in spite of installing this software.
I have a brand new Dell Ispiron 14z Ultrabook. I keep having problems with Wi-Fi connectivity. I can use the Ethernet connection fine, but when I try to connect to Wi-Fi I keep getting no access or limited connectivity. I have other devices and laptops that work fine on the same Wi-Fi networks
When i turn the laptop on at first it seems normal and it says i have an internet connection, but when i try to go on the internet it just puts up a blank white screen. It then tries to load a webpage and either freezes completely and the whole screen goes black or times out after about 10 minutes and says:
"The instruction at 0x73F9D86A referenced memory at 0x73F9D86A. The required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of 0xc0000185. Click OK to terminate the program"
