My Dell Inspiron Laptop Will Connect to Wifi, but Won't Access the Internet

Q: My Dell Inspiron Laptop Will Connect to Wifi, but Won't Access the Internet

My home computer will connect fine to the internet, as will my iPhone and my family's androids. And just yesterday, my laptop was working fine when I wanted to use the internet. Last night, I was on YouTube, when my internet just started failing. So I opened Steam, then Skype. Neither worked. So I just shut it off for the night hoping it'd fix itself. It hasn't. I tried one suggestion of changing my router time, that didn't help. I also tried simply restarting my router. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Hi 
Please assistance with this unfortunate case. I have a BRAND NEW dell inspiron 13, 7000 series. Had not been in use for more than 3 days... 
I have problems connecting with the WIFI (although all other devices in my apartment connect smoothly to the router). WIFI button does not turn, switch refuses to move to ON. Red X on the wifi network at the right hand bottom corner... 
I have read some articles suggesting to go the device manager, network adapter and update driver, but when I expand network adapter I only have 2 Bluetooth devices listed. Nothing about WIFI.... please HELP!! 
Second issue - tried to reboot several times as the laptop did connect to the internet for 2 minutes on reboot. All times, reboot fails and I get the following message: Driver Power State Failure. 
Please, I hope you can help me with this awful experience with Dell laptop.

I installed a new router at home. All devices are working ok but the Dell Inspiron can't connect to the wifi.
I try updating the drivers using the following installer:
Network_Driver_HP06Y_WN_10.0.0.276_A00.EXE
But after restart the notebook it still can't connect to wifi. Windows doesn't help with the error message:
This version of windows is really poor. I feel very frustrated with windows, because it doesn't say anything about the issue in order to guide / help me to find a solution. I can't believe how dark is it.
The current driver version installed is 10.0.0.276:
Windows event viewer also doesn't show any error that could help to solve the problem.
Searching Internet didn't find anything useful.

Anybody could help?

My home desktop is connected to a wireless router through AT&T U-verse and it's broadcasting just fine. I can see the name and everything when I try and connect on my laptop but there is always an error that brings me to a troubleshooting screen. I've made sure the password is correct by going to Start-Run, IPCONFIG and then typing my IP address into the address bar in my browser. I dont know what else I can do, I feel like I've tried everything! Help please.

Sometimes, you need to replace the router.
Sometimes, you can call your service provider and ask them to take a look on line to see if the subscription needs to be refreshed.
But often, all that is needed (despite the fact that it is a lot of work) is to uninstall your existing system, then reboot, and reinstall everything.
You might also find success by looking at your device manager in Windows to see if you have any grey, red, or yellow flags by any related device. That may show you have a permanent hardware failure if you cannot restore it, then you are off to the store or your provider for a new cable modem or router.

Hi all,
Pulling my hair out at the Inspiron 11 machine type 3137.  We've had it for about two years and it has never connected to our home router at a range greater than about ten feet from the access point.
The problem started when we first took it out of the box, then running Windows 8, later 8.1, now Windows 10.  All the OS upgrades have neither made the problem better nor worse.
Router is a Linksys E2500, in other words, name-brand stuff.  4 other machines in the house work all over the house and can connect to the router from anywhere in the house.
The driver is the latest version, and we have ruled out problems with firewall settings.  We can ping any network service, but no luck on HTTP, POP3/SMTP, etc. protocols.
For the past two years my wife has solved the problem by sitting within 10 feet from the access point, but that's not what we paid for and not what we expect from Dell.  Any ideas?  Anyone had a similar issue?
Thanks,
Kevin B

Dell Inspiron 1750, Windows 7 x64 - no wifi access through my Windstream 2wire router.

Other devices both Mac and PC are still connecting through my router so I'm pretty sure it's in the DELL. Out of warrantee of course.

I can see networks in the "connect to a network" box but when I try to connect to them, it brings up a box that says unable to connect to network. Most of the time the wireless status icon shows 5 unlit bars with an orange dot over them.

The only suggestion from trouble shooter is reset the router by turning it off and on. No go there.

I can connect with ethernet cable with no problem.

I've tried the "flush.bat" and other suggestions in other forums with no success.

My network adapter - Intel(R) Wifi Link 5100 AGN - I've updated the driver
it says it's working.

[I'll attach IPCONFIG images.]

I'm sure hoping the smart helpers might get me wifi-ing again.
Thanks...

A:No wifi access Dell Inspiron 1750 Win7 x64 Windstream 2Wire router

Welcome to the forum djbeede.

You appear to be connected both wired and wirelessly here, valid IP for both connections, the ipconfig/all would show me more than just ipconfig. You should unplug the Ethernet when testing the wireless as an Ethernet connection will override a wireless connection most every time.

Do you have any type of third party anti virus software installed on this system?

Have you tried resetting the router using the actual reset button on the side of the router?

I have a friend that has a Dell Inspiron laptop that will not connect wirelessly.  I have used an ethernet cable and it connects and works properly.
 
When I run a check it says that the wireless is not turned on.  After doing some reading on Google I have found that you can press F2 and FN at the same time to turn on wireless.  I've tried that and it doesn't seem to work.
 
I've checked the router and the wireless is on.  The inernet also shows that it is connected.
 
I don't see a slider on the side of the case to turn on the wireless (I have a Dell XPS that uses a slider) 
 
I would sure appreciate any and all other ideas on what I can try.  This Dell Inspiron is running Windows 7.  It has 4 gigs of RAM and a 500 gig hard drive.
 
Thanks in advance for all of your help.

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525, that is fairly new, considering I bought it two months ago. My parents have satellite internet through Wildblue. An ethernet cable plugs "directly" into the satellite (no router). They use the cable to plug into their desktop and their internet works without hassle or problem. However, when I unplug the cable and plug it into my laptop, I cannot connect to the internet. The windows icon on my bar is blue, since I am sending data; however I recieve nothing.

I have tried several things, such as plugging the IP/Gateway settings (their numbers from Network Connection Details) from my parents connection (desktop) into my laptop, but it still will not connect. The gateway is always shown as blank, and when I tried to run MSN Messenger, it told me my gateway was offline.

I have tried to disable my Norton and Windows firewall, change their settings, but that does not work.

I have tried changing the IP numbers and running troubleshooters (diagnose and repair, etc.), to no avail; by the way, my ethernet cable and port work perfectly fine; I've tested both.

Any ideas?

Hello there my wife Dell Inspiron 1545 w/ Windows 7, laptop just stopped connecting to the internet. Last Sunday it was working fine then the following Monday she could not connect to the internet. I had tried all that I could think of and even call Belkin for help. Nothing was wrong with the router so they couldn't help me with the problem. I did a troubleshoot and the laptop gives the following problem. [The Diagnostics Policy Service is not running.] I have no idea in what that is and is hoping that someone can tell me. It do says that it have "Limited connection." Would appreciate it if someone could help to our problem.
 

A:Dell Inspiron 1545 won't connect to Internet

Be sure to test your connection with another computer first, to rule out cable modem and other hard ware issues.
The Inspiron 1545 does not have a bad record of failure with the ethernet port... but this one could be gone, and might be difficult to fix at your desk without the ability to connect.
You might want to go to the Dell site with another computer and download and save all the driver updates for that Dell Product ID, download and reinstall them via a usb drive or CD... as a early test.
If the Dell is still under warranty, Dell will send somebody to your home or shop for diagnostics... otherwise, you can short cut wasted time by finding a qualified or experienced tech to run a few tests.
Ethernet ports do burn out, randomly, on a number of system boards, though the expected failure rate is very low. We have never seen a failure on the 1545's we see in our shops. Yours may be a goner that only a motherboard repair or replacement will fix...
Good luck. Please let us know the final diagnosis and fix.

Hi, i have two questions.
first: i did not find the bletooth device in this laptop, but i read on the internet, that it should be available in this model.
second and more important issue is, that the laptot is not able to connect to any network via Wi-Fi nor via cable.
It was ok in the past, but now it seems to find the wireless SSID fine and connect to it with the encryption key but it has trouble acquiring an IP address.
I am trying all wi-fi networks available in my neighbourhood and hotspot which i made from my phone and nothing works. Also as i mentioned, the connection it is not working via cable.
I have used this laptot in past also in foreign countries, for example in Vietnam or Cannada and everything worked fine.
Operation system is genuine seller - installed. Win xp service pack 3 home edition.
All other devices, like mobile phone, other laptops are able to connect to my wi-fi. So i don't think there is a problem with my Wi-fi network.
Thanks a lot for your help.

A:Dell Inspiron mini 10 can not connect to internet

You should check your device manager to see what bluetooth you may have installed, and if there are any devices that may need driver updates or are unrecognized by the system. 

As for the IP issue. There are many things that can contribute to this. If you have run adware removal recently, some programs can actually remove or reconfigure components essential for network operation. winsockfix is a common tool used to fix this. Ive gone through it myself (while working on a family member's computer who was experiencing similar issues). 

You may also try uninstalling and then reinstalling your network card in the device manager. Some people suggest checking your password or removing saved passwords, but seeing as you have already tested multiple networks, the issue is not that.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Have you tried connecting your laptop to different Wi-Fi networks and still can't connect?

Might be worth to update your laptop's Wi-Fi ethernet driver to the current one from Dell's support site.

If updating the driver didn't resolve your issue we'll need more information by following our networking preposting requirements to further assist you and provide you more troubleshooting guides.

Hello, I am trying to connect a Dell Inspiron Mini to my home wireless network. It was working last week with no problems. The status icon shows that it is connected to the network and gives an IP address. However, when I try and view a webpage I get "The page cannot be displayed". I have tried to "Diagnose Connection Problem" and it says there are no issues.

I have tried the ipconfig /release, ipconfig /flushdns, and ipconfic /renew and that spits out a new IP address but still no connection. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Dell Inspiron Mini will not connect to internet

Go to the Control Panel/Internet Connections. Right click your Local Area Connection/Properties scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP-IP) hit Properties. Make sure Obtain an IP Address Automatically is checked as well as Obtain a DNS Server Address Automatically. Browse to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc open the Hosts file with Notepad. Delete any lines after

Save the file. Do the ipconfig release, flushdns, and renew again.

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

A:Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Battery plugged in not charging. Can I use adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop ?

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

I just bought a brand-new Dell Inspiron 1545. I started the computer, finished the registration and connected to my home wireless networking system. The Dell has Vista OS pre-loaded on it and it showed full connectivity to my internet system. However, once I clicked on Internet Explorer, the page would not load and I could surf to other pages. Thinking it was an Internet Explorer issue, I tried Firefox. Firefox allowed me to go to Google, but nothing else. I spent about an hour on the phone with Dell, who informed me that there have been some configuration problems between Vista, McAfee and Internet Explorer, but they wanted to charge me $250 for a one year software warranty (apparently my warranty is only hardware). I uninstalled the free 30-day trial McAfee but could not still surf the web. I've tried ipconfig as well as other online hints but nothing's worked. I was wondering if anyone else has run into this problem. I'm pretty close to just returning the Dell to the store and looking for another brand. Thanks in advance!
 

A:Brand New Dell Inspiron 1545 Won't Connect to Internet

Yes, I can connect using an Ethernet cord. The Comcast technical website (our home internet provider) shows that my computer is connected via Ethernet and wirelessly, but I still can only surf the web when I'm connected with an Ethernet cord.

I recently installed my WIndows XP home edition with service pack 2 to my laptop and some of the drivers for my dell inspiron e1505 are missing. I tried going to the dell website to install the drivers and the application file could not be read (EXE files). The only reason i reformatted my computer because i started receiving messages like 'application could not be read by win32'. Unable to verify windows xp w/o internet access. The missing drivers are(under other drivers): ethernet controller, pci driver, base system device X3, network controller, SM Bus controller, Video Controller, Video controller (vga compatible). I already tried connecting my ethernet cord directly to the cable modem and it still doesn't work. Usually people that visit just have to connect their internet cord to access the internet.

A:Reformatted Dell Inspiron e1505 and cannot connect to internet

Yeah it sounds exactly like you're drivers are missing. You can double check by right clicking my computer > manage > device manager, you will probably see a bunch of question marks/exclamation points.

If you go to the Dell site, you should be able to download a single driver for the ethernet controller. Try this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&catid=-1&impid=-1
Go to Network and look for "broadcom driver for 10/100 integrated controller". Don't click add to list, just click the download link. Save it to your desktop, then transfer it via usb and install it on the Dell. Reboot and then plug in your ethernet cable, hopefully you can get online. If that works you can install all Windows updates, then go back to the link and add all your drivers to the list and download easier with dell driver download manager.

Today I tried plugging it rite into the router with a LAN cable and still, no dice. Came up with an IP address error.
I'm guessing this is a router issue? When i run ipconfig in cmd prompt, it doesn't even have a default gateway?
Could someone explain what is going wrong here, and why It wont connect? We have 2 Macs, a PS3, some android tablets and a HP laptop running from out D-Link router.

I just installed WiFi at my house. I can connect on my smartphone and by ethernet cable and the Internet works great. I can also connect to the WiFi on my laptop, but the Internet does not work. My homepage will come up but I can't go to any other sites. My computer does not have this problem with any other WiFi networks.

I've read a lot of old threads on this site about similar problems; I can't figure out what's wrong, though. I'm a total dummy when it comes to this stuff. Can someone help?

Based on what I've read, here's some quick info that might be useful:
1) HP Pavilion laptop
2) Windows 7
3) I have Norton Internet Security

I also did the ipconfig /all command and here are the results (I don't know how to interpret them):

Hi,
I've a linksys wifi router WRT54GH connected with D-link modem to have a wifi access point at my home.
All the devices, my 2 laptops, 1 desktop can connect to this wifi & can access the internet without any problem.
But when I connect my phone Samsung Galaxy S2 OR Samsung Galaxy Grand, phone cannot access the internet even though phone is able to connect the wifi & can get an IP address as well from router.

I tried my phone connected over other wifi access points & worked without any issue & can access internet, to confirm that there is no problem with phones.
So problem is with my home network configuration / setup.
Can someone please help ?

Hi....All

I recently bought Dell Inspiron 14R N4110, which came only one default partition (C:\) with Windows 7 Home Premium.
But later on, I did one more partition (D:\), and I installed all drivers(which comes with Dell laptop). but some how my internet is not working properly. Sometime its too slow and not connecting.

I reformatted the laptop, and Restored the modem/router to factory defaults (in that order) neither helped. But if I restored my laptop to factory default (which I don't want, because it has only one partition C:\ ), than everything works fine. Why its happen ?

I hope that you people will be a big help.
I greatly appreciate your help.

Hi, I'm new to the forum for this exact problem, I'll have to start from a couple of months ago. I have had Att DSL service for years now and I play Call of Duty online of PS3. I decided that I wanted better speeds for my gaming, so I tried a new service called Excede by Wildblue. This is a satellite powered internet service, I didn't know that satellite internet was bad for gaming at the time. We were stuck with them for a couple of weeks but finally got rid of the service a couple hundred dollars later. I just now tried to reconnect our Att service today and I ran into the problem of no Default Gateway and no media server connection. I was also on the phone with an Att representative the whole time I was doing so. After hours of double-checking and failed attempts at troubleshooting, we finally gave up on the situation although I would really like my connection back TOMORROW! (A friend that I haven't played with in a while is getting to a connection tomorrow.) I then tried to take matters into my own hands, I did have a random anit-virus on my computer called K7TS (K7 Total Security) and I completely turned it off just in case of firewall encounters. Nothing has changed. However, I did get an internet connection eventually but not the way I'd prefer, it was a broadband connection which wouldn't work for my PS3 (My PS3 must be connected wirelessly due to ethernet port complications, I think it was struck by lightning..

When you were talking with AT&T did they have you reset the modem to its default settings and then let it reconfigure? Unless something happened to physically damage the modem a reset should have gotten internet connectivity.

Something strange happened. This morning, at 5:25, my Dell laptop "Wi-Fi" changed from "Wi-Fi" to "Wi-Fi 2" and my Ethernet is now "Ethernet 2". Now I cannot connect to the Internet through Ethernet (which is my only option where I am, which is at home), and the Wi-Fi networks that used to show up on the list because I am within range don't show up anymore. I cannot even turn Wi Fi 2 on, since it is grayed out under "Networks."

Specifically, it now says "Dell Wireless 1705 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHZ) #2" on the Device Manager. I tried to delete the #2 from "Wi-Fi 2" on the Network Connections page, but it says "cannot rename this connection. A connection with the name you specified already exists." So the original Wi-Fi (and Ethernet) are still there, somewhere, but where? Why did they disappear? How can I get them back?

Here is some system information:

Windows edition: 8.1
Processor: Intel Core i5-4200 U 1.60 GHz, 2.30 GHz
64-bit operating system

I restored my system to March 19, but that didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My wifi router is normally placed on the first floor. When I go upstairs and try to connect to my laptop wifi to the internet, it will not work. The problem is, my laptop cannot find the network on the wifi list. I've been using the wifi on my laptop in my room upstairs for years yet all of a sudden today it stopped working.

I tested it with my phone on the exact same spot as my laptop and the internet connected just fine.

I moved my laptop to the basement and also tried the first floor and it worked fine. The Network Adapter driver is working fine from what I've seen.

Could it be because there is a setting on my laptop that it will not try to look for the wifi that is not close enough? If there is any missing information feel free to ask. Thanks in advance.

Please help. I know very little about computers. Please excuse me if I explain things wrong and use incorrect terminology.

I hadn't used my laptop for a while, and yesterday, it didn't come on when I tried to turn it on. I ended up taking out the battery, then holding down the power button for 30 seconds. The laptop worked fine after that, and I was able to access the Internet. When I went to shut it down, it said that it had updates to install, so I told it to install the updates and shut off when it was done.

When I started it up today, it seemed slow to get to the Toshiba screen. It looked liked it was still installing updates, which I found odd because it had shut itself down yesterday after installing all of them (I thought). I shut it down again after the updates (or whatever that was) had completed, and I was able to access one site very briefly. However, now I can't access the Internet at all. The Internet Explorer page comes up for a few seconds and then closes again to the Toshiba page. When I check my connection, it says that the Wifi is connected. I can't figure out why I can't access the Internet. Please help.

Edited to add that I'm using Windows 8. Also, I just tried to scan with Norton, but the scan won't work.

Morning folks,
Laptop won't connect via wireless.
It will connect via ethernet.
I have run antivirus and malaware bytes
I have checked relevant drivers
This is a known software issue as it happened last month. I took it to my local PC guy and he fixed it but was very vague about what he did. "I ran a couple of scripts" was his answer
All other devices in the house are fine.
When the laptop crapped out last month, so did the desktop BUT desktop is ethernet only. The computer guy fixed this the same way.
 
I could go back to my guy, but if  it is recurring then I would like to know what is causing it.
 
I've tried different routers

Hello,
I have recently upgraded to windows 10 and everything seems file except one problem I am facing which is the wifi card connectivity issues. My connection to router drops very frequently, curently the generic driver which windows think is appropriate is installed. I wanted to undate that with Dell's driver which I can't find on driver download section. 64 bit WiFi driver is NOT there. 32 Bit driver is but that won't install on my machine.
Can someone from Dell help? either to give me the link for correct driver download or confirm driver is not available in which case I would need to downgrade to windwos 8 as the system is unusable in its current state.

A:Dell Inspiron 15R 7520 SE - Windows 10 64 Bit WiFi Driver not available on Dell Site

Hello,
On the Drivers & Download pages for the Inspiron 15R 7520 there are only 64-bit options for Windows, whether 8.0,8.1, or 10.   So those drivers are the ones for the 64-bit version of Windows 10, as long as you filter the operating system option to Windows 10 64-bit. 
The file name may state "Win32" but if you click on the "View Details" link, and then check "Supported Operating Systems" near the bottom of the page you'll find that the driver supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
You don't mention which wireless card you have in that system so I can't link directly to the specific driver.  Which card do you have and what error are you getting when trying to install the drvier?
I would also recommend updating the firmware on your router.  Many routers need an update to be able to handle Windows 10 specific drivers and cards reliably.   What router brand and model are you connecting to?  And do you have problems with all routers or just this one.
Lastly, here is a link to the Dell Networking & Wireless Support Center.  You will find a few support articles in there that may be of help to you.
Let me know which card you have and when the last time you updated your router and, if you can't get the connection to work, I'll see what else I can suggest to help you.

All,

An elderly friend of mine let someone borrow their laptop and when they got it back, it no longer worked on their home Wifi.

I have been researching how to fix this but so far haven't been able to fix it so I would really appreciate any help.

Here's the situation:

- I can see they haven't installed anything new since it was borrowed
- It works completely fine on the internet when connecting via internet cable
- I have run anti-virus software which didn't find anything
- I tried to update the wireless card's driver but it said it didn't need an update
- The DNS settings look ok to me (no VPN or anything)
- I checked the LAN settings and that seems normal
- I've tried it in my house as well and it doesn't connect to the wifi either
- Lots of other devices connect without any problems
- There is some HP internet software installed that came with the laptop, it says 'did not find an ip address'.
- OS is XP

They are quite upset about this and I'd love to fix it for them. It's quite an old laptop and so it's slow...so it makes it quite hard to try and fix!

I would be hugely grateful for any suggestions!

I have been having a problem for a few weeks now and nothing I've done or come across seems to solve the issue!
Basically when I try and connect to my wifi (netgear router) I get a very strong signal but local only access & an unidentified network. I have my desktop & 2 more laptops running off this router so it can't be that.

After failing to connect to wifi I tried to use an ethernet connection to try and update my drivers in hope that would fix the wifi problem. After plugging the ethernet in I was in exactly the same position, I kept getting 'Identifying' appear in network connections which then turned to unidentified and wouldn't allow me to connect to the internet either!

The laptop is about 3-4 years old I think so I did update the drivers but that didn't do anything either, any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

A:Dell Laptop will not connect to any internet

it maybe a firewall blocking that can happen suddenly - if you have a time trial installed at some point in the past or even supplied with the PC
I think Dell use Mcafee - how to remove if this is the case is below

anyway

would you post the following information
------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

I am referencing a 3 yr old Dell Inspiron 3520. It's running on Windows 10.
The laptop was working fine, if not a little patchy yesterday, I closed it, then opened it up about 20 minutes later and suddenly it wouldn't connect to the internet.
On the bottom bar, the Wi-Fi connection symbol has an exclamation point in an orange triangle. When that is clicked, the window looks as though it is connected, except under the connection name it says "No Internet."
This also happens when I connect it to an Ethernet cord.
I've run all the diagnostic tests I can find within the laptop and various online forums, but to no avail. I've also disabled and then enabled the adapters for both the Ethernet and Wi-Fi. I've restarted the laptop multiple times. I've run diagnostic tests within internet connections, shared folders, home group, network adapter and incoming connections. None seem to have any errors or issues. (Any found were fixed then run again and are clear and device restarted). I can't check for updates, as I can't connect to the internet.
I've tried Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer, none of which work. The Wi-Fi is working perfectly with several other devices, (PC, PS3&4, XBox, iPod, Android, etc). But just for safety sake the router has been reset several times.
Dell won't offer any free tech support because it is outside of the warrantee and I've run out of options!!
Please help!! Thanks!

Greetings!

I have an internet connection which is distributed through a wireless router. I use my laptop's (which also has a LAN adapter) WiFi to connect to that router. I have a PC too which only has LAN adapter but not the Wireless adapter.

Unfortunately I cannot wire my place as the router is in my housemate's room. I have network cables though to connect my PC and my laptop. Can I access Internet on my PC using connection between my laptop and PC and my laptop being connected to the Internet via WiFi?

I have DHCP enabled on my WiFi laptop. I am not sure what do I need to do and if I need to give static IP's to all the computers?

Thanks,

PS - I can access the router settings and I can change those settings unless it hampers my other house-mates to use the Internet.

Dear Friends,

I am encountering strange issue while connecting my laptop to my home wifi router. I have 4 devices connected to router and working perfectly, but my Dell laptop suddenly stopped connecting to internet. It seems to be connected to router, but says No Internet Access. This is new issue, since it was working fine along with other 4 devices in the past.

Tried doing some basic steps, like - Removing the devices from Network Center and adding again, Reset the Router, ipconfig /renew ipconfig /release..but nothing works.

The funny thing is when I do a USB/Wifi Hotspot Tethering using same wifi with my Android phone, the Dell laptop connects to internet.

So, Its clear that Wifi Router is Good, Internet is Good, Laptop Network Card is also good, but something else is wrong. Please help.

OS - Windows 10(The same issue was there in Windows 7 HP before installing Windows 10)

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Hi. I will try to give as much detail as possible here. I am not a computer wiz but I'm no dummy either. I have xanadoo internet. It is mostly reliable and I know it is not my internet connection because my desktop works just fine, in fact, I'm using the same ethernet cable for both. I just unplug the desktop ethernet and plug it into the laptop. I also know the laptop detects the cord because it tries to identify a connection when I plug it in. It has never worked for me at home, only if I connect through WiFi. Here's the weird part...I know it CAN work in my apartment because my brother is tech savvy and I asked him to come over and troubleshoot it and when he tried it, it worked like a charm! That part is SOOO frustrating to me I've tried about ten different times and it NEVER works. I know the internet is working at those times because I put it right back in my desktop and it works just fine. I did try to go to internet options and add a connection (even though I don't think it's necessary since it worked for my brother with the same ethernet cord) but it asks for a name and password from my ISP which I don't have and when I try to connect without it, it said something about a problem with the router, but there is no problem with the router. I came right back to this computer and, as you can see, it's working fine. Both are Dells. The laptop is a Dell M5030. Both running on Vista.

Please help!

Hi All,

Have tried to figure this out from a few posts here but my situation always ends up different. I have an i-mac that i have no troubles with, it connects via WiFi or a wired connection, with which I am using to post this. I also have a fairly crappy asus netbook with windows xp that i really just want to muck around with. It connects to my wireless network fine with great signal and what not but will not connect to the internet.

What I have tried : going into command prompt to ping. I can ping my computers IP address with no problems (not sure if this even means anything just saw it on another post) but there is no Default Gateway displayed when i >IPCONFIG /ALL. Im wondering if this may have something to do with it as I saw a suggestion to PING the default gateway in another post.

dont know if im heading in the right direction or not? any help from anyone that knows what they're doing would be much appreciated.

Cheers.

I would firstly, double check security and you typed your passkey in right.. sounds dumb but has fixed many peoples errors. Also make sure you didn't block your MAC Adrees.

If still no go, turn off the router security then try to connect.

If no go try updating the drivers.

If still no go then we got issues.

About a week ago, our cable internet connection went out. Before I had a chance to reboot the modem & router, my 11 year old decided to completely reset the router to factory settings! Ugh! This caused several issues: my home network is now gone, only a unsecured factory network is available. When I try to plug my laptop into the router via ethernet cord (in order to login to router and setup secure network) my computer will not recognize the router and won't connect to internet. I tried troubleshooting with my cable provider and they say it's in my computer (IP address will not reset) and he recommended I replace my network card. However, today when I brought my laptop to work, it will instantly recognize the wifi at work. So is it really my network card that is causing issues? Please help, I'm desperate and not tech too tech savvy!

Just to be clear, the two issues stated in the title are related. (I read the rules and guidelines )

Last weekend, my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop suddenly couldn't connect to the internet. I looked around every corner of the computer, checking to see if anything was corrupted/broken, and I found that the DHCP Client Service and DNS Client Service cannot start (Error 1608, the dependency service or group failed to start). The DHCP Client depends on AFD. NetBios over Tcpip (already started, so that's a green), and TCP/IP Protocol Driver. However, I cannot find the AFD service anywhere in Services, and the TCP/IP Protocol driver has a yellow exclamation mark next to it, same with the IP Network Address Translator driver. Their device status is Code 24 (This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.), and when I try to start the IP Translator driver, it says "The system encountered the following error while attempting to start the service - The dependency service or group failed to start.". The TCP/IP driver gives me a slightly different error, "The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion". Going back to regedit and looking in the Tcpip folder, the DependOnService data says IPSec. There's no IPSec folder in regedit, anywhere!

Not sure why just pressing F2 turns off your WiFi typically a combination function key is needed to do so, like FN+F2. There is a quick set utility for dells that you can change settings. In the run box under start button type.. mobility center. Then from there you change the function keys to multimedia that might help.

Hi All.

First I need to mention I know Zero about networking.

The short version is How do I Disable WiFi on a years old Dell Inspiron 660?

Long version: Today I was doing some security updates on my Betterhalf's computer, I opened Task Manager for the first time on it. Under the Networking tab I saw the Local Area Connection like I see on my computer, but on top there was a second grid for WiFi!???

I didn't even know her system had WiFi.

Not knowing what to do, I looked at the "Network" icon on the lower left of the screen. Sure enough, I had my choice of four WiFi links.

I then looked at Device Manager under Network Adapters and found:
Dell Wireless 1506 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz, and
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

I don't know what else to do, but I figure there has to be an easy way to simply turn it off without just uninstalling it in Device Manager.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

A:How to Disable WiFi on Dell Inspiron 660

Sorry, but after thinking about it for a minute, how is the computer even seeing WiFi? It's hard wired into my router. Recently I had to look at my router for my cable company and it's something like a Linksys WG54G or GL.

So is it supplying the WiFi links to the computer? Or is it just getting them from 'thin air'??

This morning I went to go on to the internet and it says it can't connect to a network. I've never had this problem before so I clicked on the network and it said it couldn't detect any.

When i clicked on "diagnose the problem" it says "there are driver or hardware problems with the network adapter "dell wireless 1390 WLAN mini-card" on this computer.

I have a Dell Inspiron 640m

I can find the cord to hook it up to the internet with a wire (I can buy one if absolutely needed) and I do have the original software CD.

I not good with computers so if anyone can help me out I would appreciate it.

Thanks.
 

A:Laptop won't connect to internet...dell wireless 1390 wlan mini-card.

Hi:Take a look at device manager,particularly the WLAN card.Any error indicators?
Let&#8217;s take a look at the status of the network adapters

Device manager:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?
4. should be enabled and working properly.
5. If error code,what is it ?

It would be best if you could post a screen shot of Device Manager with the Network adapters and Other devices sections expanded.

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Also.Go to the Dell site.Search the drivers available for your particular model by inputting the service tag # for your unit.Should be on a side or bottom tag along with model and serial #.This will make it a lot easier to determine the proper driver(s) to download/install

Also,let's see this:

Hi - I'm currently experiencing a problem with my wireless connection.
I can connect fine to my wireless router and the WPA key I enter is accepted, but the router wont allow me onto the internet. I set up my dads Laptop to the router and that works fine on the same software, but mine refuses to. It connects fine through a wired connection though and allows me onto the internet, so there must be something wrong with the wireless connection my side? Any help would be appreciated! I have looked at other posts on the forum but none have been usefull to me

A:Laptop can connect to router but wont allow access to the internet

There are two things I would like you try / verify. First: when you are using the wifi connection, did you leave the wired connection plugged in? If so, please unplug and try again.
Second: I see that you have a himachi adapter installed. Do you use Logmein VPN software? Can you uninstall it and see if that helps?

I can not connect to my wireless network from my laptop. I've tried researching and trying so many different options, but have had no results. I'm not very tech savy, and am tired of getting no results, so thought I may be able to get help from here.

I am able to connect to the internet by plugging the ethernet cord into my laptop, but my wireless connection shows "unidentified" and says "local access only." I don't believe it's my router, though because we use our phones, ipad and wireless printer with no problems. I'm going to include what showed up after I did something I saw in another post on this site so that maybe it will help. I have an HP laptop, Windows Vista 64-bit OS, and belkin router. Hopefully someone can help me?!?!

A:Local Access Only can not connect to wireless internet from my laptop

the Atheros AR5007 adapter on vista has given a lot of problems over the years here
the most common fix is to use the driver from the atheros website

heres the full details

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

The majority of fixes are via installing a new driver from either the Manufacturers website see item (2) and if that does not resolve the issue then from the atheros web site - see item (3)

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufactu... Read more

Bought a new Dell Inspiron 14-5447 few months ago.
The wifi connection is very week, cannot get any signal at more than 5 m distance. Dell's support adviced me to update the driver (http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=T3FHP&fileId=3395646633&osCode=WB64A&productCode=inspiron-14-5447-laptop&languageCode=EN&categoryId=NI), but it didn't help at all.
Dell's thecnical service confirm that the computer has this problem and replaced it, but the new computer (also Dell Inspiron 14-5447) has the same problem. Dell's support had no more solutions for me.
is there any solution to the problem?
Cannot use the computer at the monent altough bought it few monthes ago.
I can provide the serial number, if required.

First, please forgive me if this is formatted oddly- I am typing this on my Blackberry.

For the past few months, I have been accessing the internet with my laptop's wifi through my neighbor's password-protected network (with his permission). I also sometimes go online using another neighborhood network which does NOT have a security key.

As of today, I can view networks and connect to both of these (as well as others), but I can't get online. I get the "No Internet access" message when I connect to any network.

When I go to the command prompt and type ipconfig /all, I get this for IPv4 address: 192.168.1.9(Preferred) and I cannot successfully ping any ip addresses.

I have rebooted already and renewed my network adaptor. Any other suggestions would be very welcome. Thank you!

My Dell laptop recently stopped connecting to the wireless router at my house. Every other device in the house that uses the internet connects perfectly, however my laptop says that is connected, but above that it says "Unidentified Network - No Internet access". I haven't installed anything new on it except the latest version of Java. It is a Windows 7 laptop and this problem has never happened before. How can I fix it so I can use the internet again?

Help my Laptop Studio 1555 seems to have a virus although McAfee is currently enabled and has not detected it. I can not access the internet or certain programmes. All the advice sites so far tell me to download programmes but as I can't get on the internet this is impossible. I also get constant popups from it claiming to be an antivirus and it clearly isn't because it is asking for payments. I don't think it is legitimate.
Is there any way of rebooting my laptop or equivalent in order to remove it. I am a beginner go easy and please explain simply.
Thank you I would be grateful for any advice somebody out there may have.

My fiancee and I currently have the Dell Inspiron 17R SE laptop with the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230, and it has worked for a few months now up until the Monday of last week. While on the internet, my fiancee was noticing her wifi speed slowed down to a crawl. She performed speed tests to find out that the speed was not as high as it used to be. She updated drivers for the computer, as well as removed any clutter that would cause the wifi slowdown.
When we tried many options, they did not give us the results that we were looking for. Finally, after some process of elimination, we concluded that our wifi card needed a replacement. I don't want to get any old card to use and then find out that it doesn't fit or is not compatible with Windows 10. I have been taking my time to research what could be compatible to improve my laptop computer, but I have been coming up short.

What I would like to know is what wifi cards are compatible with our Dell computer so that we can get this replaced as soon as possible without having to pay out the nose for unneeded computer repair?

The laptop was used 2 hours before the wifi adapter suddenly went "missing", as in no wifi driver is shown in the Device Manager list, and when I try to install the driver, the installation was unsuccessful due to absence of hardware.
Now, this laptop was bought 3 years ago, and this problem reoccurred a few times, each time it just magically fixed itself after a couple of days. The problem usually happens after having carried the computer outside during bus ride, so I'm guessing the hardware component somehow got shaken out of place?
What should I do now to fix the problem ASAP? Thank you!

A:Dell Inspiron 15r 5521 cannot detect wifi adapter

Hi SEASONOFFLAKES,
What is the current OS installed on the system? What is the wireless card model on the system? Does the ethernet work fine?
You cannot install the driver if the hardware is not detected. 
Update the BIOS if possible - http://dell.to/2fvY6Hc- restart the system and check again.
If the card is still not detected, then try reseating the wireless card and check. Download the service manual here - http://dell.to/2fw2juI
If it still does not work, then you could try replacing the wireless card - you could order the parts here as well - http://bit.ly/2eP1069
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.
