Dell :: Unable To Connect Modem Router To Desktop Dimension C521
Nov 18, 2011
I have a Netgear DGN3500 wireless modem router that I'm trying to setup on my Dell desktop "Dimension C521". I get the error message "Ethernet adaptor required". I'm not sure why I am encountering the error message, as I have successfully installed a modem previously on the desktop via a ethernet cable.
I have a Dell Desktop Dimension E520 with a Windows 7 operating system. Up until a couple of days ago I was able to connect to the internet. I have the router connected to the computer via an ethernet cable. Now if does not detect any wireless routers in my vicinity and there were 7 others. I have a belkin G router.
I have a Dell Dimension L733r with a Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Adaptor. When I start the computer, it connects to the wireless network immediately. As I go through the day, all of a sudden I start getting "Unable to Connect to Wireless Network". I click on the popup and then click on repair. It goes through it's procedures and eventually reconnects the network. Sometimes it says "Connection Very Good" other times "Low" or even "Very Low". Several minutes later, it will do the same thing again and I go through the same procedure again. This might happen several more times then it will be okay. There are days where it never happens at all and then there are days where it happens every 10 minutes or so.
I have a Dell Dimension XPS R450 Desktop, with MS Windows XP SP3, which I would like to connect to the internet by way of a Linksys Wi-Fi Router N300 Model E1200-NP. Can this be done? Will I need a Network Adapter from someone?
I have an elderly Dell Dimension 5150 desktop computer. It should have wireless capability. I purchased a wifi usb 2.0 adapter, but have been unable to set it up following on-screen instructions.Running Win XP Home edition.I have reason to believe that OS may have been comprimised by a virus previously; that is why I set it aside. Now I am attempting to reactivate it.The OS seems to work normally, but I need internet access to confirm this.
I have a functioning wifi router in my house; it works normally with two other computers.I am attempting to confirm if the Win XP OS needs to be replaced before purchase.How can I confirm the OS is shot and I must purchase a new one?
I'm trying to fix my brother's computer (an old Dimension 4600). At first ISP modem wouldn't even detect his computer on the network. I downloaded the Ethernet drivers and installed them and now it detects his computer, but it still won't connect to the internet
Cable modem connected directly to a Dell Vostro laptop works fine. Same cable reconnected to Dell Dimension 4700 is not working. This has all been working fine for years - usually I have a wireless network with the 4700 connected to the router by Ethernet cable, and the Vostro connected by wireless, but I have removed the router to close in on the problem.First, I am not sure if my ip settings are correct. This is the output from 'ipconfig /all' [CODE].
I am trying to get an old computer in my church's computer lab connected to the internet. We have an ethernet cable that works (other computers can connect using it), but I cannot get the Dimension connected. It says that the Local Area Connection is enabled, but I cannot connect to the internet. I tried installing all of the ethernet drivers on the DELL website, but nothing has fixed the problem
My (home desktop Dell Dimension E310) other computer had a virus that flatlined the machine. I reinstalled the operating system from the discs provided by DELL. Now, I can't connect to my DSL. The browser wont see the http:/192.168.0.1 ActionTec router. It's plugged directly into the computer via ethernet cable. this laptop is receiving signal from the wireless portion of that router, so there has to be a signal to the computer (it was working earlier this morning prior to DELL disc reinstall).
I am trying to connect my Dell Dimension E310 to WiFi using my Sprint Sierra 589 USB adapter but I am not able to get through.i have installed Sprint S/w for connecting WiFi using the USB adapter. After I connect USB adapter, it shows Wireless connection icon in right bottom but when I right click to wireless network connection in Network connections - it gives me on 2 options - General & Advanced. I don't see Wireless Network tab.If connect the Sprint card to my laptop & try to connect the laptopn, it works. The internet on laptop get connected using Sprint Card instead of my laptop existing card which indicates the Sprint card is working. how to make above successful OR I need to purchanse new WiFi adapter which can connect to Dell E310 (after googling some adapters, found few WiFi adapters which work on XP)
I just got my dell dimension 2400 up n running again.
1) I need a new operating system . i know how to do that what with windows being designed to make computers work properly or what is the latest thats not vista or could i just get a copy from a friend? <--- that may not be particularly legal but idc i just want to know if it would work if a new disk is too expensive
2) I need internet connectability i have a working att wireless router brand new just got delivered today and i have a d link wireless reciever thing i just got from my buddy but how to get the internet up n running without boring holes in the floor / wall or dragging a cable 18 miles from the router to the computer so i need it to be wireless
3) I am not sure what to do with it do i just need soft ware updates or do i need hardware updates to get it up to speed with the so called "big boys even though its far larger than any laptop my goal is to have a fast running internet capable game capable and multitasking computer with which i can do.
I have problem connecting the wifi router to my desktop (running Windows XP) through LAN. When i connect the internet cable directly to my desktop, it was working. But when i connect the internet cable to wifi router, then a LAN cable from router to desktop, my desktop is showing that the network cable was disconnected. I have used the different lan cable too. I have used the reset function too. But the problem was not solved. I am getting the wifi access. But the connection between the router and the desktop was not established.
Desktop won't connect to internet. I have a Belkin router and my laptops connect to the internet. My Netflix Rokus connects to the internet.I have tried your suggestion with reset winsock and reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults,etc. [code]
Connected my Dell laptop to the E1000 using the enclosed disk, easy install and no problems with wireless connection. Created a USB via the install disk to connect the Dell desktop (XP pro SP3). When running installing received error pop up "installation not compete" contact Linksys support for assistance. Disabled all internet connections and tried a manual installation but failed. Should I just purchase a wireless USB addapter?
I have an older Dell Desktop (Dimension E310) with Windows XP. I haven't turned it on in a year or so. Last time I used it I had a PCI Adapter for wireless and it worked fine.
Since then we've moved and are relying on a wireless router and I'm now trying to reconnect it, but it no longer has the little wireless icon. It has the Intel PROset for wired connections (from when I first bought it), and I ran the diagnostic on it, and everything passed except for the "link test." What do I do now?
I have 2 computers and 1 printer connected to the dsl modem and another computer and 2 printers connected to a router, I have internet connection to all. the problem I am having is I am trying to add 2 of the printers that are on the router to my pc's but I am unable to locate them also I am unable to log into my router through one of the computers that is connected to my modem directly but I can connect to my router with the pc connected directly to the router.
All the printers are set to share. Is the only way to do this is to connect all the printers to the main PC and then network all the pc's together? I am just trying to connect to all the printers that are on modem and router from any of the pc's connected to modem and router.
I have a Dell Dimension 4550. I have a D-Link 655 router and want to set up a wireless network in my home, using my PC. I also have a laptop that I would like to connect to my wireless network, once I get up and running. I know how to install my router (which I haven't done yet) but I am not sure if I can set up a wireless network on my Dell Dimension or not.
I just got Comcast ISP and used my own Modem. It's a Webstar DPC2100 R2 Modem and I can connect just fine from Modem to my pc. However, when I add my Netgear WGR614 v6 router into the mix, I get no connection.
I reset my Hybrid modem router's settings back to factory settings cause the disconnects were pissing me off.After a while, It disconnected. I tried reconnecting, but now it's only showing "No Internet access."
I have been using broadband in my laptop using asus wireless router/modem DSL-N10E for last 2 months but with Ethernet cable plugged in. I have never used its wifi function. I tried today but was unable to connect after entering security passwordWhen look for troubleshoot it says "There might be problem with the drivers for the wireless network connection adapters"
So I recently just built a new pc for gaming, I can't seem to connect to the internet through my router or directly through my modem. I have connected directly on my laptop and it works and through router and it works.
I have Windows 7 64 bit.I bought a Netgear DGN2000 approximately two years ago. It is working well.Currently, there is good connectivity between my laptop and the modem/router (wired and wireless).I worked on my desktop this morning, uninstalled some programmed, but must have uninstalled a driver or something.I inserted the Resource CD, which installs the modem (although it is installed). Then it stalls at some point.If I troubleshoot, it states “Windows do not detect a properly installed network adaptor.
I installed a new Media link MWN-WAPR150N router and I can connect two laptops and an i Pad wireless but when I try to access the Internet through a Dell Dimension 4550 desktop which is directly connected to the router, I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." I have tried unplugging the cable modem and router, downloading network drivers, repairing the connection, ip config /release and /renew, etc. and nothing has worked. The connection status shows as connected. I can ping the router successfully, but I can't ping a web site.
I am new to setting up wireless router connections. I used to get internet from my neighbor using my Dell wireless 1450 adaptor Model D1450U. That neighbor has left the area so I went and got my own modem and wireless router. I have a Netgear WNDR3400 wireless router and a zoom 5341G modem. I set up the cable connection and everything is working fine with my roommate's new Dell XPS laptop. I am having problems even detecting my main connection (Home 1) using my desktop computer and the dell wireless 1450 adaptor. My dell adapter does not locate the network I created, but it can find the 5g and the "(Home 1 guest)" networks that I create, however it can not connect to them. I made sure I was typing in the correct passwords, but it still can not seem to connect.
i purchased a Dell N7110 from Dell last week, and a few days later I purchased a NETGEAR PTV2000 wireless display adapter. It was my understanding the N7110 would support the PTV2000; my N7110 specs are below.Originally, I downloaded the required software (Intel WIDI) and drivers from the Intel website.
The laptop and PTV2000 adapter seemed to start fine in that the security code was given on my TV screen and I was able to enter it in the Intel WIDI software. Next step was to select "connect" to the adapter. The connection was initialized, as the green light on the PTV2000 was flashing and my TV screen said "connecting", then "connected". At the moment it said "connected", my laptop screen immediately flashed black, then restored itself approx one second later with the graphics on the laptop screen larger (larger icons) than normal. Approximately one second after this occurred, the connection was lost and the Intel software stated the following error: "unable to send desktop to wireless display, try restarting the application. If the problem persists, try re-installing the Intel WIDI software".
I retried the software numerous times with same results. I uninstalled then re-installed the Intel WIDI software and drivers with the same results. I also uninstalled and re-installed the software, but got them from the Netgear website, and then later from the Dell website (all had Intel WIDI software to download), which all ended in the same results (original problem still exists).After countless tries of running Intel WIDI, the program would on rare occasions, lock up and become unresponsive, while the green light on the adapter was still flashing (connection being made) and the TV message said "connected". The screen never changed from "connect", the desktop image never appeared on the TV, and I would have to use task manager to shut the program down.
Netgear and Intel websites do not address this issue, other than saying "try uninstalling then reinstalling the software", which I did countless times. Web searches hint the real problem is in the Graphics drivers on the Dell - I did find a thread on this site (Dell site) complaining the PTV2000 would not play DVDs or Blueray, and the person changed the Graphics driver, but now cannot get Windows to boot - I believe the Dell techs are currently mailing him software to correct this problem. Because of this, I am very reluctant to change the Graphics drivers as I do not want to cause the same issue on my machine...I have not had any problems with the wifi side of things, in that I am always able to initialize a "connect" without issues, and it tries to connect but just never completely does... tell me if the original problem I stated above can be corrected, and the steps I need to take, or should I return the PTV2000 and forget the whole wireless display idea?
Side Note: I can provide the exact softeware and driver links I used if required, but didn't as there really wasn't much choice - The Intel site, Netgear site, and DELL site all provided short instructions and only one download option; Win 7 32 or Win 7 64. I used Win 7 64 option.
