Dell Inspiron 4150 / Gigabit Network Options For Older Laptop
Aug 12, 2012
I have an older Dell laptop (Inspiron 4150: 10+ years old) and it has an onboard 3com 10/100 ethernet adapter. I recently switched to a Doccis 3.0 modem from Comcast and the laptop doesn't seem to get along with it too well. Are there any options for me to be able to get a Gigabit ethernet adapter for this older laptop? As far as the expansion slots go, the laptop has a Cardbus controller (Texas Instruements 1420 Cardbus controller) and as far as the PC Card connectors go, it has 2(supports 2 Type I or II cards or 1 Type III card with the PCMCIA being 16 bits and the Cardbus being 32 bits).
Is there such thing as a Gigabit ethernet pc card that this laptop would support? If not, what other options are there?
bought a new Dell Inspiron 15R laptop online and received it today.
It has Windows 8 preloaded, I am not able to connect to my WiFi network, while I am able to connect using my other devices.
The WiFi network in getting detected and the signal strength is full as well, when I give the password and click connect, it tries to verify and connect for a long time, finally say "Can't connect to this network".
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 a Inspiron 15R (N5010) laptop and I have problems connecting with my wifi connection. i'm not able to find any network connections available but there are plenty in my building and i cannot connect to my network using my friend's laptop. I have turned on the wifi button which is placed on top of the keyboard on one of my function keys, i have noticed an exclamation mark next to my wireless adapter in the device manager menu and it says the device is not working properly. I dont have an ethernet cable so i cannot connect to the internet.
I am having Dell Inpiron 4030. Following are specs
Quote: Quote: Processor: Intel(R) Core(Tm) i3 CPU M380 @2.53GHz RAM - 2.00 GB OS - Windows 7 ultimate 32 but
I am unable to connect to the wired network. We have a 4 port prolink router and there is no error with it. I know because I am using the same cable for my laptop, which I am using for my desktop. I just unplug it from the desktop and plug it to laptop. I am unable to provide any specs from the desktop because there is an error in that computer.
However, I can give ipconfig/all data from my father's computer, which use another port of the same router.
My laptop is working perfectly with the Mobile BroadBand. And this is a dual boot computer with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and the cable is fine with Ubuntu.
Following is the result of ipconfig/all

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop. Xp home edition service pack 3. I am able to access internet with cable but not wirelessly. I have looked at several posts and tried them but nothing has worked so far. I unplugged the router and reset. I know I am missing something. I unplugged cable and ran an ipconfig /all and saved to a disk.
I have two of these computers side by side. The card in issue is recognized, but says no driver. I have copied the driver from the good 580e, downloaded everything I could, and cannot get it? Using Win7, 64 bit, comcast DSL. The bad one just stopped working?
I bought a new laptop inspiron 15 R 3521. i have installed win 7 ultimate . i have installed all the driver from dell website . but the message i am getting is no internet access. ( unidentified network.) my laptop is unable to find router device . How can I connect.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. I have a problem accessing my home network which is not showing up under the "Connect to a Network " list. I am able to see my neighbours' networks and can access my own network with my phone, tablet etc. The driver is up to date according to Windows and is functioning correctly. I reinstalled the OS yesterday and the wireless was working fine last night. To the best of my knowledge, nothing has been altered.
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.
Its a Dell Inspiron comp with Windows 7 & a BT buisness Hub router/modem,When searching for available wifi several come up in box as normal but his own router name comes up but there is a red cross where the rest have the usual green signal strength bars. When you hover over router name it says "this computer settings are not compatable" His router appears to be working as both him and myself coneccted our phones through it OK.
I have a dell inspiron 8000 with windows xp installed on it. My laptop is using an adapter to connect to the internet. My question is how can i share the connection on my laptop so that my phone and other devices are able to connect to the laptop's internet.

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."
Very soon for the second time we will be replacing systems in our (grad school) student computer Lab from the time of its opening in January, 1998. The monitors are recessed down below glass desk surfaces and are 17-inch CRT (Dell).Our current (medium) computers are SFF GX-150 and have 512MB RAM (doubled from the original 256) and 80 GB hard drives. The new GX620 will have 2GB RAM, 160MB hard drive.In addition, our current 10/100 Ethernet LAN for this part of the campus is also supposed to be upgraded to Gigabit (switch). Any experience of using Gigabit in an organization's local area network to find out any concerns for which I should be alert as we begin this new phase. Incoming students arrive before middle of August so the switch-out needs to be done fairly quickly and smoothly. What concerns should I have?

My laptop won't find an ip address and connect to the Internet right now I'm using my iPod. I know the Internet is working. I have a Dell inspiron 6400. Two days ago I had an Internet connection but I had to switch it so it would automatically find an ip address. I cAn get a connection at my moms house and it works just fine but any where else it can't find an ip adress. I've gone to start>run>cmd>ipconfic then I go type in that ip and it connects but won't let me connect on a browser or messenger.
My laptop won't find an ip address. I'm only 14 and I've tried everything I could think of. Two days ago it would connect to the Internet but wouldn't connect on a browser or messenger so I hadda change the tcp/ip to automatic then it worked but now with different wireless Internet it can't find an ip address

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?
I would like to connect my playstation 3 to the internet from my laptop which is connected to a guest network (college dorm: I don't have access to a network key - I use my student ID and password at the launch of the browser to access the internet). Is there any way to do this? I have a Dell inspiron 1500 with Windows 7. Basically, what I would like to do is support my ps3 internet connection using my guest network connection from my laptop by running an ethernet cable from the laptop to my playstation.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop that I want to connect to my Belkin Play N600 wireless network. My laptop is connected to the network (I think), but it won't get internet. When I connect to the wi-fi with my iPod Touch, it works fine, no problems. If I connect the laptop to the router with an ethernet cable everything is fine and dandy, but when I unplug the cable it isn't.
I recently bought an AT&T hotspot elevate and my iPad, iPhone and wii connect to it with no problem. I also have a dell Inspiron laptop that will connect, stay connected for about 30 seconds, disconnect, connect back and continue the cycle. Trying to figure out why it won't stay connected.
My computer will notice my Wireless router, but will keep cycling and saying "no internet access", yet it comes up with full bars of connection.I've tried re-installing Wireless drivers and that didn't work. My wireless internet is working on my Mac, iPhone, iPad & Mums laptop.I am using a Dell Inspiron 15r N5110.I am typing this is off my Laptop using my Personal hotspot from my iPhone
I have a Dell Inspirion N5110.Recently I have been unable to connect to the internet through a router (both wireless and using a wire). I can use the internet if I connect the laptop directly to the modem. The laptop successfully connects to the wireless network, and other devices on this network can access the internet.
I ran ipconfig /all and these are the results:I use the Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection
I own a DELL Inspiron N5010 laptop.I use Reliance net connect in order to connect to the internet.I don't have any external devices connected to my laptop other than the USB data card.I have a smart phone and a tablet for which I need a WiFi connection in order to access the apps.
I think that N5010 has an inbuilt wireless adapter.Can I turn my laptop into a hotspot,so that I can access WiFi @ home for my other gadgets.I even downloaded a driver from the Dell support (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 ) and also tried to set up a wireless connection using adhoc.I can see my connection listed in the system tray,but the connection says "WAITING FOR USERS".
Unfortunately, I'd been blaming the broadband at home and didn't realise this before my warranty ran out - on 30/12/12
McAffee has been uninstalled and Avast put on instead, but still it is the same - it works fine when the lead is plugged in from the router - on Speedtest it shows download speed 3.13. On wireless at home it works, just, but speed is reduced to 0.49 even though I'm sitting right next to the router. Bring it to work and it can't see the internet to connect to it
I just received a Wifi adapter from my internet provider and my laptop does not connect. I thought that my laptop comes with Wifi in it already. I called dell and they told me to buy it? I dont understand, I am connected with my network, I am able to connect wifi with my PS3 and Iphone but not with my laptop.
