for example, there are 3 sites, A, B and C. A and B are 1.5 km apart and both are separate LAN(mixture of wireless and wired). C is 35 km apart from A and B. I have to connect A, B and C so that they can communicate with each other. Security is required.
I have not yet confirmed that this is a hardware issue but I'm pretty sure it is. I was suspecting that it was and issue with SP3 or a driver issue however it is doing the same thing always now. It will turn on and detect wireless networks but when I go to connect the connection box simply stays on "waiting for the network" then just stops. No faults or warnings. This happens with any network.
I stopped using the wireless a few months ago when it would randomly disconnect for any network. The thing just would not stay connected. Just used LAN. I have tried several different drivers and even a complete image restore. It really does seem like a hardware issue. Now I can pick up a new card for pretty cheap but I just want to if this is a common problem.
What is the best way to set up a network. Is the network wizard the way to go? Some of that terminology I dont get relative to hardware in the checklist section. I have a dell Inspiron 530, windows XP pro Sp 3 I have broadband with a westell 7500 router. I have a filtered system on all phone jacks for the signal and plugged in to the router with the phone line to the modem to the dell as primary.Peripherals are epson scanner, HP Officejet pro 8000 wireless ( i have it wired for now. thru the modem. My other PC a HP Model Pavilion d4650e with same OS. It has a linxs wireless usb adapter for Internet supply. I think I have everything I need hardware wise to proceed with the wizard.
I have a dell inspiron 1545 and my internet was working fine last night. My laptop restarted at some point during the night and now it can't connect to my normal wireless network. when I use my phone as a wifi hotspot, my laptop can connect to it.My desktop connects to my home's wireless network fine so I'm not sure why my laptop, which can connect to other networks fine, can't connect to my working home network
Today, I received the Dell Inspiron 660s I ordered and I had a question about the network port on the computer. Is the network port the place for connecting a router and then the router connects to a modem, or is there another connection I should make?
I recently bought a dell laptop(model specified on title). I decided to install windows 7 64-bit edition. I had some trouble with the following drivers : AMD Radeon HD 8730M - Doesn't seem to detect the gpu. Wireless driver - I still can't install it up to this day.P.S. I used the drivers from dell website.
when I try to connect to a network where is required a login in the first webpage I cannot have internet access, but only local access. I mean: even for free internet connection, sometimes they require you to connect to their network, then open the browser that is automatically direct to their network login page in order to login in that page.my problem is that I am able to connect to the network but when i open any browser, it does not direct me to the login webpage; it tries to go to my homepage but, obviously, the computer is not still connected to internet, so on the browser it appear "page not founded" or "page not available".
Ive been having problems with the Wireless connection on my laptop for a while now. Basically even though the signal strength is shown as excellent and hovering over the little monitor in notification area shows "Internet access" i cannot connect to the Internet via WiFi. The strange thing is when i connect an Ethernet cable the signal strength on the bottom goes up and i get Internet access but the computer seems to think its got a wireless connection, even though its actually a wired connection. Ive already tried the following
Driver Update Windows Update AntiVirus/Malware Scan Firewall/Anti Virus Off Ethernet Connection Disabled and Enabled Changed router channel reset wep key numerous times Network Scan (no problems found)

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

My Dell Inspiron 530S does not recognize any wired internet connection. I have my modem and router set up and working with my PS3 as well as my HP Desktop. But even when I use the same wire that is in the HP, my Dell doesn't pull up any network/internet.
I just recently reinstalled Windows XP Professional onto my Dell Inspiron 6000 again. And I try to connect to my home wifi and i get a message saying "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. refresh the list of available networks, and try to connect again." I refresh the networks and it still shows the network ive been trying to connect to then i retry and same message pops up. I can connect to other networks fine but not my home wifi. My wifi router is a Netgear N600 Dual Band Router.
I've been having a few problems keeping my laptop connected to any wireless network I use. It'll connect fine and work for a while and then it'll stop loading or refreshing pages. If I got to network connections and hit 'disable' and then 'enable' it'll connect fine again and run for a little longer but it's really beginning to get frustrating having to do this every 5 minutes.
Wireless not connecting Dell Inspiron N5110 to router.Dell Inspiron N5110 quit connecting last night about 8 PM while I was online.Both iphone and our other Dell operate wirelessly fine. N5110 works fine hooked to router with ethernet cable.
1. turned on the off Norton fire wall and tried to connect wirelessly - no success. 2. loaded lastest Dell drives for networking. 3. run Dell diagnostics [code]
My new dell Inspiron 3520 stopped connecting to the Internet it won't connect to wifi at all and is limited when plugged into a Ethernet cable . I don't know what to to I've tried everything the wifi led isn't working either
I have recently purchased a new HUAWEI wireless modem. This lovely little device will connect beautifully to my iPad, to all the Acer computers at work, to my Samsung mobile phone. It will not however successfuly connect wirlessly to my Dell Inspiron N5010.
I plug it in via a USB port and can connect to the internet that way. If I unplug the USB cable the computer says I am connected but when I try to access a webpage the browser says I am not connected. In the bottom right of my screen my computer says I am connected. This is most confusing and frustrating. I took the computer to work and had the IT department look at it but they had no answers for me.this same computer has recently been connecting to a different wireless modem so I am at a loss.
A Dell Inspiron laptop (2011) with Windows 7, will not connect to the internet. Wireless network shows good connectivity and I tried plugging in my ethernet cable between the router and my Dell and it didn't work. My desktop and other devices (Wii, other laptops, itouch) can connect wirelessly without a problem. I have had this laptop for about a year and it has worked perfectly until today. I was using the internet an hour prior to shutting down the system. When I restarted it an hour later the wireless connection was there, but there was an error saying that I could not connect to the internet. I tried restarting the router and the system and nothing worked. Could this be a hardware problem with the network card? I have been using the network card heavily for internet gaming and noticed that the laptop has been getting very hot.
I am working on a Dell Inspiron 3000 for a friend. It was gifted to him and he had to re-install the OS which is Win XP. I installed all of the drivers Dell had listed that goes with this particular model. It is still not connecting to the Internet wirelessly or via LAN.
I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 1764 laptop that I received on the 25th of June. It is "replacing" a Dell Inspiron 9100 that has gotten to be too slow and bulky for my needs. For support purposes, both laptops are running on Windows 7.Overall, I love my new Inspiron 1764. However, I have noticed seriously degraded connection/signal strength with the wireless card (Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-card) compared to my Inspiron 9100 (Dell Wireless 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI card).
In areas of my house that my 9100 can get full signal strength (5 bars), my new 1764 is getting 2 or fewer bars. This behavior is also not limited to only my house, as I have tested it at my job and in an area less than 10 feet away from the wireless router, I have "Internet connectivity problems".
I tried twice this morning to speak with Dell support. The first person I spoke at least initiated a DellConnect session with me so that they could check some of my settings and such (however, why they went twice into my sharing settings I could not determine since they have absolutely nothing to do with signal strength.)
Unfortunately, I was disconnected from the session when I went to an area that had less signal than right next to my wireless router.I then got back on chat support with Dell and received another technician to speak with. I explained my problem, told them that I was in a DellConnect session with the other technician, and they looked up my support contract.They then told me that my warranty does not cover software issues and referred me to the software department and told me it would be an extra charge. I told them that I did not believe it to be a software issue in any way, shape, or form. They told me that it must be a setting issue. I have since spent several hours scouring the internet forums on Dell and other websites checking people who have had similar issues. Some of their issues were admittedly from software settings, but I have still yet to find anything that indicates to me that I have an incorrect software setting.
As of this writing, I am standing in my kitchen, typing on my Inspiron 9100 with a full 5 bars, while my Inspiron 1764 sits next to me with a measly 2 bars, and I am literally standing 7 feet above the room that houses my Linksys WRTU54G-TM router.Personally, I suspect a faulty wireless card, but how do I convince Dell to hear my case and replace it rather than trying to bilk me for unneeded software support?
I have a new inspiron 15 laptop and also bought an all in one wireless printer. I have a iinet BOB lite modem. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the wireless printer, modem and laptop to tall to one another. Am I missing something or should it all work? The laptop has internet access. The laptop also shows the printer installed with a big green tick next to it but it says it is offline. At no point has a green light appeared on the printer to indicate any wireless connectivity to the modem.
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.
We have a brand new Dell Insprion Q15R laptop which works fine apart from the fact that certain websites hang when we try to log on at home using our edimax router and we cant get into them. Other websites work fine. Also we have an old IBM laptop where all websites work fine. Its just the Dell that is playing up on certain sites. However if we go to somebody else's house and log on using their internet connection and router the websites in question work fine on the Dell.
Examples of the websites that we cant access at home and just hang are : argos, easyjet, national rail, expedia
