Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Not Connecting To Internet

Feb 6, 2013

On a Dell Inspiron 1545, the internet stopped connecting. I updated all of the networking drivers and that did not work. The 'repair wireless network connection' does not work, it tries to repair it then stops at 'renewing your IP address'. It has nothing to do with the wireless network, because we are at a university and only this computer will not work. 

here is the ipconfig /all

Dell :: Connecting Printer V313w To Inspiron 1545 Laptop Wireless?

Mar 11, 2011

I have just bought a v313w printer & cannot get it to connect wireless to my inspirion 1545 laptop (windows 7)During the wireless set-up, it gets to the third of the five stages ok. These are configuring printer, resetting printer & connecting to wireless network. It fails on Acquiring network address & communicating with the printer!

I have tried the following without any luck, uninstalling & re-installing, powering down cable modem/router, changing security settings on router from 64bit wep to 128 wep & WPA/PSK, dell expert taking control of my laptop & trying to connect (which resulted in Dell sending me a new printer because the expert seemed to think it maybe a faulty wireless card in the printer, this is not the case becuase the same problem occurs with the second printer dell have sent me!). I have downloaded & installed the latest drivers for this printer from the dell website & I've switched off my security (anti virus/firewall) when trying to install.

I am completely stuck as to what to try next, the printer works perfectly fine from the USB cable.

Dell Inspiron 1545 With Vista Won't Connect To The Internet

Sep 6, 2011

My Dell inspiron 1545 with vista won't connect to the internet. I'm pretty sure it's nothing to do with the router because i'm currently posting this through the same router on a different laptop.Everything was fine and i hadn't changed any of the settings and suddenly when i tried to connect it would say "connection taking longer than usual" and then "connection unsuccessful"When i look on availiable wifi's the strenth is excellent and when i diagnose the problem it says "Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card"?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 - Laptop Doesn't Connect To Internet

Oct 23, 2011

I don't really know much about computers, but I have a Dell inspiron 1545 and it fell off my bed by accident a while back so now I notice glitches here and there, but recently it just doesn't connect to Internet anymore, and I know my wifi is fine because I'm using my iPad right now to write this. When I go to Network and Sharing Center it shows a drawing of my PC and then a green line to "Identifying" and a line with an X to Internet. It also says my access is local only.

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 - Reset Laptop With OS Disc / Can't Connect To Internet

Jun 25, 2013

I wanted my latptop to be reset so I could give it to a friend. Everything worked fine before I ran the OS disk. Now I try to connec to the internet and it wont work. The message "this computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured" popped up. So I tried to plug in a an ethernet cable and it still wont let me connect to the internet!  In my device manager bar under other devices a network controller is there with a yellow excplanation point. So I was going to go to the dell link provided in another forum and update the drivers, but I cant do that if I cant connect to the internet at all! My laptop is a dell inspiron 1545.

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 / 1397 WLAN Card - Slow Internet / Frequent Disconnects?

Dec 4, 2012

Older model Inspiron 1545' using the 1397 WLAN card. Has been working fine, until perhaps the past two weeks. Now it frequently drops out, requiring manual disconnect and reconnect. Tonight Internet very slow on that laptop.

There are other devices using the same wifi (including this iPad used to post this), which connect to the wifi and Internet no issue. To me, its pointing to the laptop - either the WLAN card itself, or something in the laptop starting to fail (the laptop does have issues restarting - where it won't do that unless left for say 30 mins).

I'm suspecting a recent windows update or mcafee security update - no other software has been installed or updated.

I've tried changing antenna setting from auto to aux with no change to the above. Have checked for newer drivers - the laptop reports the version we have is the latest ( from 2009) - although they are the windows driver. Running windows 7, 64 bit - as supplied by dell when laptop was brand new. should I give up on the 1397 card and use another USB wifi adapter ?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 - Wi-Fi Switch

Jun 9, 2012

I have an inspiron 1545 that had to be resurrected after a crash. The WiFi worked before I re-loaded windows from the recovery disc, The radio switch indicates it is on but it doesn't seem to find any signals. I am running windows vista sp-2. I am using version mifi2200. If I am overlooking the way to make the WiFi work by getting into a program and having to turn something on or adjusting a setting i am unaware of what to do.

Dell :: Wireless With Inspiron 1545 Is Non Responsive

Jun 21, 2009

I recently purchases an inspiron 1545 notebook with various upgrades, one including an upgraded wireless card to get faster speeds and signal strength. I have had problems with this laptop ever since i recieved it, i have an old laptop with a worse card which picks up my signal perfectly fine and the speed and signal stays constant. With this inspiron 1545 with a "even better" wireless card i have many problems:,losing signal,poor signal strength and quality,speeds going from decent to slower than dial up,I will be checking this as often as possible.

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 - Laptop Will Not Detect Wi-Fi

Oct 27, 2012

I have a three year old Inspiron 1545. About a month ago the computer stopped detecting the wifi at home. It never had this problem before, and the other household laptop and iPhone had no problem detecting and getting onto the the wifi. The problematic laptop will connect to the net via wire. I get a red x over the connection icon, and when I put the cursor over the icon, a message reads "connection status unknown: the dependency service or group failed to start."

Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop Wireless Not Working?

Aug 15, 2011

My Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop computer recently had a problem with its hard drive. I took it in and the computer guy had to get me a new hard drive. I picked it up today and my internet won't work! No networks show up. I've tried pushing the F2 key that usually turns the wireless on and off, but nothing. I went into my control panel>network and internet>network map, and it says, "The adapter is not connected." What do I need to do to get my wireless to work?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 - Wipe Drive And Reinstall

Aug 28, 2012

I have an inspiron 1545. I had to wipe the drive and reinstall, I have the OS disc but do not have (and cannot remember if it came with) any other installation discs for it. I have downloaded  the drivers off of the Dell site for the laptop and put them on it via usb, and installed them. However It will not connect to anything.  It will not connect wireless or hardwired. Is there a particular installation driver I'm missing and can download? Can I download a virtual disc of the ones I no longer have?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 / N7110 - Unreliable Wi-Fi Speed

Feb 17, 2012

I am trying to get my mom's n7110 working correctly in a hurry. The WiFi is painfully slow. It is not the router because I am getting great speed on every other computer. The speed on the n7110 is very unreliable. One second it will be 3mbps or lower, then it will jump to 14mbps.....compared to my inspiron 1545 that gets close to 20mbps according to [URL].  

I've tried updating some drivers yesterday, and that worked a little bit because it was WAY worse before would take about a minute to load a picture.any tricks or updates i should look for now?

Dell Inspiron 1545 Upgraded To Windows 7 - SSID Not Showing Up?

Apr 9, 2012

I recently upgraded a relatives Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop from Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit! To Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit. Previously this was connected wireless to a netgear router. On upgrading the OS i have found that the previous network is no longer showing up in the list of avalible networks even though a number of other devices can still connect and see the broacast of the SSID. As other networks are showing up and the laptop can succesfully connect to others I dont see this as being a driver issue. I have checked the router configuration for broadcast of SSID and MAC filtering. My next step will be to connect the router and laptop via ethernet.
