This has happened a long time ago, a year or so but it wouldn't let me get on the internet. I've done a system restore, but it still shows the ! in front of the wireless connection thats their since im on it right now typing this up on my PC.
I have a Dell Inspiron N4010, recently it has not been connecting to any wireless network, not at work, school or home! I troubleshoot the problems and it states that I have plug in Ethernet i don't know why it will not connect without it, I bought this laptop only 5 months ago!
I am really enjoying my Dell, but I have one issue. The wireless card on the N4010 shuts itself off for no reason. Sometimes the Fn+F2 key will turn the connection back on, but sometimes I have to Fn+F2 and disabling and re-abling the wireless connection to re-establish the network connection.Is there a setting that I need to adjust or a new driver???
am facing a big issue with windows 8 ,i recently updated my os to windows 8 64bit.now am totally cut from networks,,both Bluetooth and WiFi,,i was able to connect to WiFi but after sometime when i tried to connect to web site its automatically disconnected,,i checked with other systems and mobile phone which is using the same network same time..
and with my Bluetooth am not even showing my Bluetooth..when i searched with mobile for nearby devices its shows dell pc but unable to connect.
I've Dell Inspiron n4010 with windows 8 OS. The problem is while I'm working, the network adapter will disconnect suddenly. In the previous OS windows 7 I faced the same problem. The only way to get it connected again is through restart.
I am using Dell Inspiron N4010 for more than a year now. It was running good. At office i am using wi -fi and at home i was using through cable connection. Fer last few days my wired connection was not working and i got all cable checked and replaced, but could not solve the problem. Then i found that in device manager, network adapters, its not showing and wired adapter. Only wi-fi and blue tooth adapters are there. I can still connect to internet at office via wi fi but its not working at home now with wired connection.I am not able to understand how it stops working and why its not showing in device manage (Network adapters).Yes one more thing i want to disclose is that earlier i have only one drive i.e. c drive wich few days back i compressed and created another drive.
I am having Inspiron N4010 for almost an year now. I have had many troubles with this but never with internet connectivity. Last week I saw myself not being able to be connected to internet through wireless or wired network while everybody else was connected and surfing. I just thought it to be a small problem and the problem seemed resolved that very day itself on its own.
But today this computer has simply failed to get connected. it does get connected, open a page or two and then again refuses to connect. On the problem diagnoses from network sharing center, it was showing that the websites are not responding, then it started showing that DNS server was not responding while all my setting are correctly configured. I pinged gateway and it responds but on pinging some website there is no response at all. It s a problem with my laptop only as everybody else are using internet very well. I am using internet through my WiFi enabled cell phone using the same connection and router that i use for my laptop. I need an urgent solutions as I have to meet some deadlines regarding assignments.
I recently reinstalled windows 7 on my dad laptop after he <ADMIN NOTE: Profanity removed as per TOU> it up beyond repair. After installing the appropriate drivers I still had no detection on my w lan adapter so I checked out the device list, and it says I'm missing drivers for two things: one is the network controller, the other is just listed as an unknown device.
I already installed every driver for the appropriate devices on the laptop, in the correct order, or as i could best manage it, but still no dice. The only network driver on the disk for my inspiron is one for an Ethernet controller.
Using a usb wireless adapter will work on a laptop with wifi?
At my wits end on my dell n4010. Download speeds tested with speedtest.net are 1/3 (5mbs vs 15mbs) that achieved on an older dell with xp, a blackberry playbook and a macbook. N4010 has windows 7 and all drivers have been updated.
I see some suspect a bad antenna within the n4010 might be the issue.
After some research, I noticed I'm having the same problem with my Inspiron N4010's wireless card as mentioned in this post. I purchased this laptop refurbished from the Dell Outlet store over a year ago.
Yes, I have tried re-installing the drivers, the BIOS is updated, and no I am not pressing that key when the wireless card randomly disables. Normally it will re-enable after a few minutes or if I keep pressing that key it may re-enable. Sometimes it will take a restart for it to re-enable.
This is a completely random problem too. I am unable to reproduce the problem.
I am just about ready to replace the card and see if that works (the laptop is out of warranty and I'm comfortable inside of a laptop so that is not an issue).
I have a Dell Inspiron 15R-5520 and recently i bought a TP-LINK Wireless, but i have a problem: i can connect to the wireless, but i have a Yellow Triangle with and exclamation mark in front of the signal, in the task bar, right bottom. And it says No Internet Connection. I had tried everything i found, i searched on google, but the result is the same.
I had to reinstall Windows but upon reinstallation, I noticed that wireless does not connect. I tried pressing Fn +F2. Nothing. No LED light for wireless.
First I started the WLAN AutoConfig service under services.msc. After starting/enabling this service - nothing.
I searched the forum and found a post for Quickset. I followed the instructions given and restarted. When I press Fn+F2 the screen flashes the wifi symbol and my wifi LED comes on. However, when I go to connect to a wireless network - none can be found (I have connected to this network before and know that it works). I searched support and navigated to Manage Wireless Networks. I click on the Add button and get the following message:Windows cannot detect any wireless network interfaces.
Ive had this computer for 2 years now. Last night the wireless randomly shut off, so i just figured it was the internet. But when i tried to connect to a different internet, i noticed that it said my wireless was off. So i figured that i just bumped the wireless button. I went to go turn it on again, but it will not turn on. I've tried hitting the button many times including using the Fn key. I can hardwire using Ethernet cable and it works, but my wireless does not. I have Windows 8 and have had it since it came out, so i know its not that. My drivers are all up to date and i have tried system restore.
i have a dell inspiron 8600 running windows xp. the issue is it will let me connect to other wireless networks but not mine. i try to connect to mine , i enter my metwork key and it says please wait while windows connects. then after 30 seconds or so the box goes away and under connections mine is listed and says automatic but i am not connected. i have tried everything, even manually setting up network and entering network key and still nothing. oh n i know it isnt my router because i have another laptop connected to this network already and works fine
I have an Asus Dual-Band Wireless-N (RT-N56U) that has worked wonderfully with my other 5 computers.Both the 2.4 ghz and the 5 ghz appear and connect as they should with my other computers.However, after purchasing my Dell Inspiron 17R Special Edition this year (Windows 8 comes preinstalled), I can see only the 2.4 ghz in the available wireless network lists. No matter what I do, I cannot see the 5 ghz wireless band connection with the Dell. I have several other computer in the same room that see it just fine, but the Dell does not.What do I need to do to get my Dell to see this 5 ghz connection?
but having trouble connecting wirelessly to the internet from my Inspiron 1420. I can see my routernetwork and the signal strength is good, but when I try to connect it says that it cannot connect. When I press connect diagnose problem it quickly opens a small window stating that windows could not connect to "Kat-wifi" (my network. I have tried rebooting the computer as well as rebooting the router by uplugging and waiting the 30 sec to 1 min and then retrying but to no avail. When I connect the computer to an ethernet cable I AM able to connect to the interent. I even atempted to manually run a test with the wireless and it passed everything except the PING test. it stated NO RESPONSE DHCP SERVER. I tried then to go to the screen of Wireless Network Conenction Properties and checked the IP Version 4 (TCP/IPv4 and both the obtain IP address and Obtain DNS server automatically are already on.

I have an Inspiron 6000 (inherited from my kids). It worked great for a while, at home or on the road whenever I needed to connect to the internet via a wi-fi hotspot, until recently. I can still connect at home (wireless) automatically, but outside of the house, I can't get any wireless connection.
Recently got my Inspiron 5010N, only issue Im having is using the built in wireless hardware. I can browse and find networks, I just cant connect to any. My home network is now open and unencrypted (running G), but it still wont connect. However, I installed a USB wireless adapter, and I can connect without issue. So I dont think its a firewall, etc. I think its something with the built in adapter...
After checking out the device manager, it looks like the laptops using a "DW1501 WLAN Half-Mini Card". I went to the downloads page through dell.com to update my drivers, but Im still having issues.Im running Windows 7 64 bit.
I have a dell inspiron 1100 laptop that i have a dell truemobile 1300 802.1.1 b/g PC card in for my wireless connection. My router is Libebox-7bd8 i thinkI have tried to connect to the internet as usual but keep getting "page cannot be displayed" but the pc says that i am connected to my live box with excellent connection.I also have a pc that has a wired connection that works perfect?I called my net provider one man said that oh no its your wireless card and hung up and another lady actually took my details and told me it was a common fault and it will be fixed withing 3 hours that was a week ago !
My laptop, Dell inspiron m5030, for some reason has stopped connecting to my wireless Internet, yet my iPad can. I have tried dissconnecting from the Internet and connecting again but it just keeps saying it can't, Even the troubleshooting diagnoses doesn't work and I have already tried disconnecting the wireless Ethernet from the outlet and restarted it but,it doesn't work. to get my laptop to start connecting to the Internet fully today!
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.
