All of a sudden after I plugged in my ethernet cable and then removed it after use, the LAN card stopped working. It wouldn't even flinch to show that there's a Limited Access network or it's connected to some network. The network runs fine on my home PC.
Sometimes the connection will be lost altogether and when I try to reconnect it says "unable to connect" and I have to wait 5/10 mins until the laptop connects it's self again automatically.Other times, the signal strength shows as full (in the bottom right) but a yellow triangle appears with an exclamation mark in it and the status reads "Currently connected to Talk Talk 388380 No internet access". It stays like this for several minutes, then goes back to normal!?I've recently had fiber optic broadband installed, but I don't think this is the issue as it was happening before.Even when the internet is working, the connection speed is really poor; YouTube videos constantly buffer, even on low quality.I've plugged in the ethernet cable today and it appears to work fine, so I think it must be an issue with the laptop[CODE]
A while ago I had to take my laptop in to have it formatted and reinstalled after I had picked up a virus. I use the internal modem behind the battery where you insert the card, if I insert an external dongle using the same sim card it seems to work just fine. Before the reinstall it was just fine, connection speed was great 3g etc, now it is slower than an old 56k dial up (no kidding) I have asked the company where I bought it, but they cant find the problem. Is there a setting or update etc that I need?
Studio 1558 using Windows 7 64-bit with Netgear DGN1000 router
I can access almost every website with no problem however two sites in particular time out unless I connect an ethernet cable between the laptop and the router. Then there is no problem, the site comes up immediately. The sites are skytv.co.nz and asbbank.co.nz.
I have tried different browsers but that does not make any difference. I borrowed a Toshiba laptop and connected to my wireless network and that had no problem connecting to either site wirelessly so there must be something wrong in my Dell laptop. One difference I noticed between the Toshiba and Dell laptops was in Wireless Network Connection Status the Connection Speed for the Dell is 65.0 Mbps whereas the Toshiba was 150.0 Mbps. I'm not sure what this means and whether it is relevant.
I have reduced the wireless MTU to 1400 from 1500 but still no connection on those sites. It is a nuisance to have to use the ethernet cable to visit two websites when the wireless works fine on every other site.
After re-installing windows 7, WIFI feature doesn't function. Under [Device Manger] I can see Network Controller has an exclamation mark next to it, I tried updating driver software manually on Dell.com and by right-clicking [Network Controller], but neither worked. I used DBAN to wipe out my system.
I also have other issues that I didn't experience until reinstalling includes: Synaptic touchpad (using fingers to magnify, scroll, etc.) and while I'm typing, the cursor jumps around sometime forward or backward if there is something written in the following lines.
I have a dell studio 1558 laptop and it's got this Bluetooth problem. I use BT to connect to Internet through my phone as a modem. But sometimes it suddenly stops working and the BT icon vanishes from the taskbar. Every attempt to restart it by Wireless switch, or by restarting BT service/process fails. (this does not happen with WiFi, or any other connection though). The only way I get back Bluetooth ON again is if I put the system to sleep, or I shut down and Turn On (Hibernate, Restart, Log off doesn't work). And this happens more frequently while multitasking than normal use.
I am using Windows 7 Home premium (service pack 0).I have the latest Bluetooth module installed, latest system BIOS installed as available in the dell website.
So I reformatted my studio 1558 laptop with windows 7 64 bit just to give it a fresh slate and when trying to set everything back up I can no longer connect wirelessly to the internet. I tried looking for the wireless driver but everyone I download says that the hardware is not found. When looking in device manager I don't see a wireless device installed.
I'm using my tablet. The problem is simple my wifi connection keeps dropping.The wifi signal is full.
My home wifi works great this is from work. I've restarted the router. I've changed the channel from 6 to 8.I have no static ip.It works on my tablet and on other laptops.
It works when i plug a network cable.I have a valid ip configuration.I can't even connect to the router web interface.I get request time out for about 90% of the ping to google.The router is a Trendnet TEW-691GR, and i'm running Win8 x64 on a dell studio 1558 PP39L.
I have a Dell Studio Laptop 1558. I recently reinstalled Widows 7 and then the drivers. I'm pretty sure I installed them in the wrong order. So how do I go about fixing that? Like I said I can't connect to any wireless networks. The networks don't even show up(I live in an apartment complex so usually I have a whole bunch of networks listed). I can only use the Ethernet cord to get online. I know the wireless works because my roomate can connect to the wireless internet.
I have a new Dell Studio 540. It is presently plugged into a wired router via an Ethernet cable. However according to the documentation I should also have a wireless card fitted. It should have the following fitted:
I have a dell studio XPS, when I remove the battery, there is a slot for inserting SIM card for connecting to internet (through SIM card).I inserted SIM card and it fixed in slot and also installed Dell Mobile Broadband Card Utility, but when run DMBC, it say No Device Detected.My windows is 7 64bit.What I must do for use SIM card dongle?If my dell laptop support UMT?If no, what is this SIM card slot?
Now that I have a Linksys N4200 router I want to upgrade the card that is in my 1735 Studio. Dell support suggested the 5100 Wireless-Network Mini-Card. That’sall well and good but looking at the picture on Dell site it is about half the size as the one that is in the computer which is a Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN MiniCard. I don't think the 5100 will bolt in the slot, too short.
Mine studio 1555 with intel core 2 duo P8700 [URL] processor and intel wifi 5100 agn card stopped connecting to router since last week. After searching a lot I found out that the Intel has stopped supporting 5100 for windows 8. Is there any way possible to use the same adapter with compatibility drivers on windows 8?? I have searched a lot but couldn't find much. All the new intel cards like "Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2200", n6300 are of 22nm while my processor is of 45nm. So will the newer card work with my processor.
I installed W8 on my Dell Studio 1735 computer. Wireless Internet access is very very slow. I have not this problem with W7 on the same computer. I tried it with an external Network cable. Very fast, 50mbps. I also tried it with an external USB Belkin wifi adaptor. It works fine. Computer has a Dell Wireless 1500 N WLAN Mini Card. Driver version:188.8.131.52 Date 2012-03-13. I cannot find any better driver.
I have one more problem that I don't have with W7. I cannot rate the computer. The Windows experience index cannot go past the test of Direct3D 10 Texture Load Assesment.
Just finished my first build and everything went pretty smoothly but my wireless network card wasn't working. I noticed after I opened it back up that in order for my to screw the card in place it made the right side of the card tilt up.
So I just set it in the PCI slot correctly but there's no way for me to screw the card in place. I know my MOBO is set properly. My graphics card fits perfectly.
we are trying to use the SD Card Slot on an Cisco ME3600X (ME-3600X-24FS-M) IOS Version 15.2(4)S2. If i try to copy a file from the sd card slot to the flash there is no Option like "slot0:" or something alse and no syslog message appers while adding the SD Card.
I have a dell 1558 studio with windows seven. my router is a linskys. My laptop will connect to the internet and stay connected but every few minutes or so it will drop out of connection and then automatically reconnect.
I have been suffering with WiFi problem since last week, I am not able to connect to WiFi but all connections are visible. I called up my ISP guy to replace the modem but still I was not able to connect to. Yesterday I called up dell (my system is under complete cover), they have tried several things and I was sitting next to my internet modem It got connected. Then to be ensured I restarted the system and my laptop got connected to WiFi. When I moved bit far away from WiFi again the same issue I am not able to connect to.
I just received my XPS 16 and I was informed that it had a built in Bluetooth. I purchased a bluetooth mouse and tried to use it, but I am unable to get the computer to turn on the Bluetooth device. Had Dell support look at it, but the guy passed me off to someone else. So I still do not have this working. Is there an updated driver required to get this Bluetooth working.
WiFi issues with his Dell Studio 1749. He has a Siemens SE587 ADSL modem/router which supports Mixed, B_only, G_only WiFi modes. The laptop has a Dell wireless 1397 WLAN mini-card which supports Loose 11h, Loose 11h+d, and Strict 11h WiFi modes. No matter what combination of modes I configure in the router and the laptop the wireless connection on the laptop only ever comes up as 1MBps or 2MBps (full strength signal, laptop right next to router). By contrast my ageing Dell Vostro 1700 always connects to the same router at 54MBps.
So I'm guessing that there is some incompabitility between the router and the laptop. We're happy to replace the router, especially as recently the ADSL side of it appears to have gone a bit flaky. I've scoured the 'net and cannot find any router which claims to support 802.11h, so (a) what should I buy and (b) how can I be sure it will work at a sensible speed with this laptop given that the one we currently have won't?
I had purchased Dell Studio 15 in 2009-2010 and before few days back i had formatted my system and installed Windows 7 ultimate SP1. Now i am not able to get the option of Bluetooth. i am sure the issue is with driver of it. Some way to reinstall the driver or make it working properly.
I had a hd crash and had to re-installl Window7 on my Studio XPS 8100. I've installed all the drivers from the dell site as well as the H57 chipset drivers from Intel. I still have 2 devices that won't install (Ethernet Controller and PCI Simple Communication Controller). I can't get on-line.
Windows 8 just released not long ago, and I am eager to upgrade my laptop to this version. From what I am understanding that Bluetooth is an issue along with Dell own drivers and configuration caused the upgrade delay. Dell will resolve and make drivers available to Windows 8.
When I try to open my bluetooth software, it just keeps closing...I've tried to reinstall earlier versions but it does the same. I have a dell xps studio 16 . What other information would I need to provide for a full diagnostic?
I have Dell Studio 1555 model laptop. Earlier I was using Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit. Dell(TM) Wireless 370 Bluetooth Module was installed and It was working fine. Recently I installed Windows 8 Pro. Since then Bluetooth is not working. I don't know which driver to install.
