Dell XPS 410 Third Computer Unable To Connect To Router
Jun 4, 2011
I have a wireless network using an Apple Airport router. There is an iMac, an IBM Think Pad and a Dell XPS 410 tower (both running XP) on the network and all were working until this week. All of a sudden I can not get on the internet with the Dell PC. When I try to log into the router, it searches for a connection, but never is able to attain one. My network is displayed and I am using WPA security and have been entering the correct key. I have tried reinstalling the drivers, but with no success. I believe I was able to access a local unprotected site, but after being connected a pass word was required. I also tried ipconfig, but it just flashed on and then immediately off.
I use a Dell 2010 laptop. I have consistently been able to use wifi. On 1 Jan I moved into a new apartment shared with a friend. My friend allows me to use the wifi by sharing the password. My friend's computer is a MacBook. But I cannot access wifi! Why is that? I am able to see the available connections and to see the one that my friend is using. But I am unable to access it. I tried manually adding the new wifi network. It shows up with "limited access" -- it does not enable use of internet.
I just purchases a Linksys E1200 router and set it up using a Dell Win 7 laptop. It works fine for the Win 7 laptop, but I am unable to connect with my Inspiron 1525 with Vista 32 bit OS. Actually, it says I'm connected, but the Access is 'Local' instead of 'Internet' - and I don't have Internet service.
After working with Linksys support, they recommended that I contact Dell. I have tried to find an updated driver for the Dell Wireless 1395 WLAM Mini Card, but am having trouble locating it on the Dell website.
I can't access anything on the network. The computer is a Dell running Windows Vista Home Premium. All attempts to access the network fail (ping, local shares, http) and other machines cannot access this one. Network & Sharing Center shows a fault between the Home Network and the internet, however I am unable to Ping or be Pinged by other computers on the Home Network. Other machines on the network are working fine both wired and wireless, although the machine in question is wired only (no wireless NIC).
The following items have been attempted, some many times, in no particular order, all producing no change in symptoms (not a complete list).
Network & Sharing diagnose & repair/reset NIC card. Cold boot. Last known good. Safe mode with networking support. Disable/stop all non-essential services & applications including firewall and antivirus. Upgrade network drivers.
I havea Dell Studio XPS 8100 with 64 bit operating system, running Windows 7 HomePremium w/ Service Pack 1. I purchased the computer in January 2011.
AfterI purchased the computer I purchased a NETGEAR Wireless Router to set up aWireless connection to two Lap Top computers but since my Desktop was merelytwo feet from the Router I hard wired it to the Router with an Ethernet Cable.
Irecently moved to a new location and found that I had to connect the XPSA 8100to a Wireless Router. I purchased a newer NETGEAR 27, and had no issuesconnecting the Laptop Computers to the new Router regardless of the distancefrom the router.
WhenI attempted to make a Wireless connection to the XPS 8100, It gave me a message“Microsoft Virtual WIFI Miniport Adapter Unable to Connect with a CODE 31”.
In reviewingmy Network Adapters I found both the “Microsoft Virtual WIFI Miniport Adapter”,and a “DW1525 (802.11n) WLAN PCIe Card” Status indicated they were not workingproperly.
Iwas able to visit the DELL website and reinstalled both the Microsoft VirtualWIFI Miniport Adapter and the DW1525 WLAN Card. Now they both indicted thatthey ARE working properly. I also located two Antennae’s that came with theDesk top and I installed them on the machine.
HoweverI still cannot get a Wireless connection to the Router and I currently have thecomputer sitting merely 3 feet from the Router. I continue to receive an “Unableto Connect Prompt”.
I have a dell latitude d610 laptop...until last night, I had no problems connecting my laptop to the wireless router...then..I'm not sure what happened, but I can't connect anymore. My daughter has the same kind of laptop and has absolutely no problems with connecting...so, it has to be something with mine. It's like it doesn't know that there is a wireless connection available.
I have Windows 7 on Dell N4110. I am unable to connect to my netgear router wirelessly. If i restart the router, it may work for some time but then again gets disconnected. However, i can connect to it through wired connection. Others in my apartment can connect to the router. They dont have windows 7 (they use vista, ubuntu). Its working fine for them. I have tried many things like updating the router, disabling firewall, changing wireless security settings, updating windows but none of them seem to work. My friend who has the same laptop also cant connect when I cant. As soon as my connection is disconnected, his also disconnects.
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.
So I'm currently running window 7 on my msi GT683-R. As of yesterday my internet stopped working, however only on my msi. I'm currently typing this on a borrowed mac using the same network that doesn't work on the other device. It also works on my iPhone. The problem is, neither the wifi nor the wired works on my MSI. I made sure DHCP was on, ran a TCP/IP stack reset, a winsock reset, have restarted my computer/router multiple times, and disabled bonjour but nothing seems to work.
i am unable to connect to some lan computers in my office. when i go to start ---> Run ---> \192.168.0.24 or else...(lan computer ip) after 10/15 seconds a popup window comes and says (network path not found). but some systems i can easily access through this procedure
I have an old computer that is Windows 98SE. It uses a dial-up connection, but I don't have a phone line anymore so I've been trying to find another way to connect it to the internet. I've tried connecting it to the internet by connecting it to my Linksys wireless broadband router but that doesn't do anything. I also have a wireless notebook adapter that I've also tried to use but the driver needs to be reinstalled or updated and I don't know how to do that. I've lost the installation disk that came with it also. Do I need to buy anything to make it work?
I have a desktop computer which is connected to the router by cable, but when this computer is on I can't connect to the wireless network with any other devices.When I turn the main computer off though I can connect fine with any wireless device.
So my old dell computer cannot connect to wireless internet, so it is connected to a Netgear internet bridge box. The other bridge box is in the basement where it is connect to the modem. I believe the location of the other box is almost directly below were my computer stand (and bridge box) used to be.I recently I moved it to different corner of my house that is about 15 feet further than the previous location. Now the wired internet speed is almost unbearable and inconsistent. The wireless speed is the same, but wired is really bad. I believe it is because the bridge boxes are further away from each other.I've tried unplugging and replugging, resetting, and etc.I would really like to know how I can fix this without moving the computer back since the furniture is in a really nice place and the computer would ruin the look.
I have a Dell Dimension 5000 and I want to transfer the computer to connect via wireless. I have bought a wireless dongle installed all the sot wear but my computer will still not connect to the modem in my house. Is this particular model able to connect via wireless. Or do I need to install more software.
My main computer is an apple mac and it is connected to the internet via a sky router. I have two lap tops one connects to the wirless network this one a dell latitude d620 does not. The icon in bottom right corner states wireless connection not connected but i have tried everything but it just wont connect. I can connect by using a local area connection by connecting the lap top to my router?
the computer is a dell it runs vista, it says its connected but wont let me access internet. I dont know a whole lot about this stuff.at the network and sharing center it showes im connected to the network but that the netywork is not connected to the internet. all other devices in the house are connected fine and running great.
i went to device manager and looked at the network devices and there is a yellow sign with a ! in it next t broadcom 801.11n network adapter and under that there is realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P), but is fine i think.
I am unable to connect to the internet with my XP computer. I am running Apple Air Port as my router. The wireless network has an iMac, an IBM Think Pad(XP SP2)and a Dell XPS 410 (XP SP2). I am using WPA security and the Dell will not connect while the other two computers always connect. My wireless network is broadcasting, but when I try to connect after entering the proper key, it attempts to connect but appears to time out and displays the available wireless network. I tried reinstalling the drivers, but no success. Device Manager says the card is working and enabled.
Does the wifi switch have to be on for a bluetooth device to connect with this computer? That is the only way I can get it to connect, but I have been told, maybe in error, that you shouldn't have to have the wifi on to do so. When my wireless adapter switch is on, my bluetooth device does connect to the computer but in the Windows Mobility Center it does show the bluetooth icon even though it is showing up in the taskbar.
I am using a Dell XPS 12 on Windows 8 Pro and I am unable to connect to my house's wifi. However I am able to connect to my iphone's personal hotspot. is it probably my house's wireless is not compatible with Windows 8 Pro? I have searched for drivers but to no avail.
Using Windows 7 on a dell laptop unable to connect to the Internet in normal mode but can connect in safe mode. I think one of the family has deleted something form the programs menu. It worked fine untill a number of weeks ago Internet connection to my home is fine as all other computers work.
I am unable to connect to the internet in wireless mode. It shows the available networks, but does not connect when I type in my router password. I have tried everything I know of. Uninstalled/Reinstalled the driver - I have an Intel 5100 AGN wireless driver installed. I disabled and enabled it. Didn't work. Running command prompt and typing in ipconfig /all doesn't detect my adapter device.
I also did these by running command prompt as an administrator: [code] and restarted my computer. I have a Dell Studio 1555 with Win 7 (32-bit) Professional. I know this is a problem with my Windows as the wireless works seamlessly in my Ubuntu.
I have a Dell Vostro 3300 laptop with Windows 7 and ran a Kaspersky Virus Scan which deleted virus' and trojan programs but now my computer says there are 'no connections available'....my WiFi is definitely working as I am able to connect on my phone and other laptop.I have checked my network adapters on Device Manager and they have a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, including 'DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card'. I have checked whether the drivers are up to date and it says they are.
All desktops and laptops in my house which are windows based are unable to connect to the internet, only the apple based ones are connecting fine. My problem is similar to the one craigs248 posted here [url]... I did have mcafee for my dell but i have turned it off and yet im still unable to access the internet, furthermore all the other windows- based desktops in my household are unable to connect to the internet.
Now that the wireless on my Dell XPS 15 Z is fine, I've run into some problems with internet connectivity with Ethernet cable. Since the beginning, I wasn't able to connect to it through cable. When I connect my laptop with the cable, it says that it's connected, and that it has an internet connection. However, I can't get on it... My browsers don't have internet, and other programs can't connect either. (that while it says that it's connected to internet, quite strange)... I was thinking of some security adjustment that might block the internet connection or something, I don't know.
Oh, something that I should mention... I was able to get internet through Ethernet cable when there was a firewall... But when there's no security to the network... It isn't possible to have internet and it gives the situation described above. (any other laptop can connect with the network, so there must be some adjustment issue...)
I have a Inspiron 8000 and I just formatted the hard drive. I had been using a D-link wireless USB adapter with a D-Link wireless router - with no problems, but now when I try to reinstall the usb wireless adapter it asks for a hard wired connection to the router and even then it won't install and will not connect wirelessly or with the network cable. it seems the internal Dell network adapter has been affected in some way and will not work - as you can see I don't have alot of pc savy..?
