Dell :: Inspiron E1505 Cannot Acquire Network Address

Jul 14, 2012

I have a dell inspiron e1505 with a dell wireless 1390 wlan mini card and I recently used the installation disc that came with the laptop to install a fresh copy of windows xp on an empty partition. I have installed all the latest drivers, also. The problem is that I can connect to my WiFi network but it is stuck on acquiring network address. I have tried releasing and renewing the ip in command prompt, reset winsock, and have mad sure all the correct services are on automatic and are started.

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 - Cannot Acquire Network Address After Reformatting Computer

May 6, 2013

My grandma has a Dell Inspiron 1520 running Win XP and has a Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n W LAN Mini-Card. The other day I reformatted her computer for her to clean things up and since then I have been unable to connect to the internet. Her computer will recognize the wireless network and connect to it but after a few minutes of trying to authenticate network address it will pop up a little window that says "limited or no connectivity." I've read countless forums on the internet using my computer and have come to the realization that it's an invalid ip address. In one post I read someone provided an ip address, subnet mask, default gateway, and a preferred DNS server code that I typed in which then showed that I was connected with wifi but still says authenticating on the WLAN card.

Dell :: Inspiron E1505 - Can Connect To Network But Not To Internet

Dec 25, 2011

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.

Dell Inspiron E1505 / Can't Detect Wireless Printer

Apr 4, 2011

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 running windows xp. Also an HP Photosmart C6180 wireless printer. This happens every time I move. I get the computer on the network and the printer on the network but they don't talk. I can't ping the printer and I can't bring up the embedded web browser. I can print the network config page from the printer but can't print a test page from the computer.I've disabled my firewall. That hasn't worked. I've tried creating a port especially for that ip address. However I don't have the disk for the printer and when I had to select my product, it only showed the C6100 series BT. I don't know what BT means but I selected that. I don't know what that means but it still won't print. The printer shows up in my printer and faxes menu but when I ran the HP print diagnostic utility no printers were displayed.

Wireless Connection On Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop Does Not Work

Dec 20, 2011

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop that is about 6 years old running Windows XP. I have a Dell desktop with a cable modem and Linksys wireless router connected to the desktop to run my home wireless network.

Yesterday the wireless no longer worked on my laptop. I have a small wireless icon (looks like a computer monitor) with a yellow triangle with an explanation point inside. The messages are 'Signal Strength: Excellent' and 'Status: Limited or No Connectivity'. I have tried the following with no success:

- Rebooting the laptop (multiple timess)

- Resetting both the cable modem and router

- Turning off the desktop, resetting both the cable modem and router, and rebooting the desktop

- Took my laptop to work where a wireless connection is available and received the same messages

Thinking my wireless adapter / wireless card is bad I purchased a Linksys wireless USB adapter and just installed it. However it also cannot connect to my wireless network and issues a 'Open network Failure' error.

The Internet works fine from my desktop but is directly connected to the modem. I have not tried connecting the modem directly to my laptop to see if it would pick up the connection.

Dell :: Inspiron E1505 Modem And Wireless Adapter Install?

Aug 24, 2009

I recently reinstalled my OS of my E1505 and was installing drivers from the Dell Resource CD (which was for an ME051, is this a problem?).  But, after installing all of the drivers and system software my Intel ProSet Wireless program still says there is no supported wireless adapter on the computer...I also cannot create a connection when I connected the laptop to my hardline DSL cable. 

In addition, the video card driver will not install saying that one or more files needed to complete the install were missing and it closes the install wizard.  Just in case any of you can answer that as well.

Dell :: E1505 Laptop Extremely Slow When Not Connected To Network

May 23, 2009

I use my personal laptop at work (an Inspiron E1505). To do so, I had to put it on the network at work. However, when I am home, my laptop runs extremely slow, sometimes taking several minutes just to open a simple program like the calculator. Web surfing is useless even with Road Runner. Any way to make this faster?

I go about removing the computer from the network and would that fix the issue or would I need to wipe the whole thing and start over?

Acquire Network Address No DNS Suffix

Jan 21, 2012

For awhile every now and then my computer decides it needs to 'acquire network address' on booting up. It never does succeed unless prompted by my going into Wireless Connections and pressing 'repair'. Yet my connection to the Internet is not impeded even while the little yellow ball hovers round mini monitor in the taskbar. It is hovering now as this thread is written. ipconfig reveals Connection Specific DNS suffix is missing, but the IP Address is there. My ZyXel 7087 router shows a fixed W/LAN/WPS and DSL light, but the Internet light is continually flickering, regardless of whether the computer is on. The TCP/IP is set to,'Obtain an IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS server address automatically'. Advanced TCP/IP Settings shows DHCP Enabled. DNS tab - DNS server addresses box is blank 'Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes' is dotted and 'Append parent suffixes of the primary suffix' is ticked. 'Append these DNS suffixes (in order)' is unchecked. WINS addresses box is blank. 'Enable LMHOSTS lookup' is ticked. NetBIOS setting - Default (checked) - Use NetBIOS setting from the DHCP server. If static IP address is used or the DHCP server does not provide NetBIOS setting enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP. Enable & Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP unchecked. While reading the WNC status the computer has found the Network address, but all above remains true.

Wireless Laptop Can't Acquire Network Address

Jan 15, 2012

Wireless internet has been working fine on my Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop for years, until last night. I am getting strong wireless signal but my wireless network connection can't seem to acquire a network address - it just tries and tries without success. I also am getting a message that I need to check the box labelled "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" but after I have done this, it eventually seems to uncheck itself after a while or upon reboot.

Laptop Unable To Acquire IP Address While Connecting To Network

Aug 20, 2012

12 hours ago, my laptop connected to my home's wireless network, no problem. The only event between then and the next time I logged in was that the ethernet cable was unplugged from the router, to be plugged directly into the Xbox. After it was reconnected, my laptop was recieving the signal, and the other home computers connect to internet just fine, but the laptop is locked out of the network. Error message when I click Connect:"Unable to acquire an IP address while connecting to Wi-Fi. Please check your settings and contact the system administrator if the problem persists."I have already tried restarting the computer, the modem, and the router. I do not want to reset the modem to factory settings.

Wireless Speed Lagging - Slow To Acquire Network Address

May 25, 2012

My network key was changed recently, and it took a few tries for my laptop to connect, but when it did it was fine. Then the key was changed again, and now my wireless is wonky. Sometimes it can't find the network, other times it will find it but then can't acquire a network address, and if it does manage to connect (sometimes it will as soon as I click 'Cancel' when it's taking forever to get the address) it starts slowing down and then speeding up again. The settings have not changed on anything, other than the network key.

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WPC54G V1.2 Can't Acquire Network Address

Jan 31, 2012

Have an old laptop running XPSP2 with a WPC54G V1.2 card that I use for email when traveling.  Had no problems accessing my old home network that ran off of a WRT54G V 5.0 wireless router, nor with any of the "motel wireless networks" when I travel.  I changed ISPs and now have an Actiontec PK5000 wireless router.
When I attempt to connect I get an error message "unable to acquire network address."
This new router has the following 64 bit and 128 bit settings
wpa-wpa2 personal
wpa personal
wpa2 personal
security off
Using any of the security settings I get the error.  Turning off security allows me to connect fine.
I realize this is a pretty old wireless card so is it possible it doesn't work with the current encryption standards but I would have thought that wep would have worked.  The driver for the card is V3.3.15.0 which is also old.  Would updating the driver work and if so what driver? If a new card is the only way any recommendations for an inexpensive card?

Dell :: Inspiron Mini 10 - Wireless Connection - Acquiring Network Address

Oct 5, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook, when I'm trying to connect to a wireless network I get the message 'Acquring Network Address'. I can connect fine using a wired connection, but using the Wirless 1397 WLAN Mini card it won't connect.

I tried to log a call with Dell as the machine is only 2 months old and someone remotely connected and said it was a software fault not hardware and they would charge me to resolve the issue. I found that hard to swallow so thought I would try here.

Cannot Acquire DHCP Address Only APIPA?

Jul 6, 2012

I have 2 computers that cannot/will not acquire an IP address from my DLink router.There are 2 other computers that aren't having any problem at I assume that it is not a problem with the DHCP service of the router. The 2 computers are laptops: one netbook running Windows XP and another standard laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium x86. Both computers are running McAfee and I have scanned with McAfee and Malwarebytes, and both are malware-free (no infections were found on either system on first it's not like I'm dealing with a system that has had infections removed). When connected to the network, they attempt to acquire an IP address, but cannot for some reason and then Automatic Private IP Addressing takes over and they come up with a 169.254.x.x address. I cannot figure out why this takes place, as I have gone through Winsock repair, uninstalled and reinstalled both network adapters (ethernet and WLAN) on both laptops and nothing seems to make a difference. I have even tried disabling APIPA by adding the "IPAutoconfigurationEnabled" DWORD value in the registry......still the same. I have manually configured the adapters with a static 192.168.0.x address, and I can begin to communicate on the local area level...but still cannot establish any kind of Internet connection.

Dell Inspiron E1705 PC Won't Renew IP Address

Jan 26, 2013

My Dell laptop will no longer connect to the internet and the issue I'm receiving is:

"Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following could not be completed: Renewing your IP Address"

I've run multiple scans on the computer with 3 different programs so have determined it does not appear to be any sort of malware issue but either a windows issue or hardware issue? When this first occurred I performed all the usual steps for repairing the connection, rebooting the router/modem, running IP config to make sure it was even showing up, direct connecting to the router, malware scans, removing dead networks from the auto-connect list, checking TCP/IP properties, checking ipconfig, looking at router settings to make sure nothing is turned off, all to no avail.

I don't know if I missed anything in the areas I looked at, or if I am just looking in all the wrong places. The computer is a Dell Inspiron E1705 with XP Media Center Edition version 2002, Service Pack 3.

Laptop Can't Acquire Working IP Address Wired

Mar 8, 2011

. The laptop can connect to the internet using the wifi card. However, it cannot connect to the internet when using the wired connection but it can be pinged from other machines at work. The NIC does not pick up a different IP address even after releasing and renewing the IP address through cmd. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the NIC. The NIC is working because when I set a static IP address the machine can connect to the net. Using DHCP it goes back to that same IP address. I have tried a winsock repair as well with no go, as well as taking the machine off the domain and re-joining it. Anyone see this before? Is there something I can do on my end to get a different IP address through DHCP or do I have to get a Network engineer involved? This is a machine on a corporate LAN.

Belkin Wireless Router - Way To Acquire IP Address

It was set up as an access point, with an IP address of I had some problems with the network today and could not access this unit by typing in the IP in my browser. I feel certain that is the IP address I put in it when setting it up, as I have a record I kept of all the settings. Is there a way to retrieve the IP address to verify that is what it is set to?

Netgear Push2TV Fails To Acquire Address

Aug 31, 2011

I purchases a Sony Vaio Intel i3 2 weeks ago largely because its a Sony and because of the Wireless Display it offered using Netgear Push2TV 1000.My first day the WiDi worked perfectly but then I got busy installing and updating the computer.And now, two weeks later, when I attempted to connect to P2TV the TV screen just says "Could not obtain network address".I updated the drivers. Nothing changed.Reset the adapter. Nothing changed.Enabled My Wifi/checked for Intel Wireless PAN DSCP server/checked firewall. Nothing happened.I looked up other people having the same issue and there seems to be a lot and they all agree that there is no cure in sight. Apparently, BestBuy even had the balls to tell some of them to restore the computers to its original factory setting to resolve the issue which is pathetic.
