Dell Inspiron Mini will not connect to internet

Q: Dell Inspiron Mini will not connect to internet

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

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.

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.

Hi:Take a look at device manager,particularly the WLAN card.Any error indicators?
Let’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:

A client brought me his laptop (dell Inspiron N5010) and said it wouldn't connect to the internet, i tried wireless (Broadcom DW1501) and ethernet (Realtek PCIe FE) and niether work, i then booted Linux Ubuntu 11.04 and the broadcom adapter connects fine, no problems, so i think it might be a driver problem, but i can't connect the computer to the internet so i can't update the driver, my client also said that he had a virus but fixed that, should i try a system restore?

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 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?

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.

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. I tried connecting wirelessly and i have a feeling that driver is missing on my dell. I tried setup a connection and doesn't work the option that automatically detects internet. Before i formatted the computer, the computer had no problems connecting wireless and to the internet. Just all the these drivers are gone.

If only i cannot connect to the internet i should be able to go to dell sites and install software. When i visit the dell drivers download list, it tries to install to my computer.

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.

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.

Last night, the internet on my dell stopped. Windows still thinks it's connected to the internet, so it can't find any problems. I've updated the wireless cards drivers, but still nothing. I have a desktop gadget that monitors network usage, and it still shows data being uploaded and downloaded, just like when the internet was working. I've also tried multiple browsers and none of them worked. I've also unplugged my router and then plugged it back in again.

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!

Hello everyone I have a very pressing problem. I had Vista running on my Inspiron 1520 Laptop. I recently upgraded to Windows 7, ever since then I have had terrible trouble with my Wireless Card. The driver for the card often comes up as not being able to start I often get Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card can not start Code 10. I have read that this was a problem when reinstalling a OS or installing a new one with this card. I believe I may need a driver for the chip set or something similar. I also understand that I may have to swap back to Vista though I really do hope I don't. I do believe that a recent update from Dell has made this problem chronic as I did not have this problem when I immediately got the laptop back.

I really am hoping that I can get some help here as Dell is not bothered to help as I am out of warranty and they don't seem to care about this older model laptop.

Thanks again for all your help

A:help with my dell inspiron mini 10

Greetings kev1994, to TSF.

Your Dell? Inspirion Mini 10 does have a Hard Drive (albeit not the same size of one that's in a Desktop); who ever told you that it does not, is incorrect.

You can view the Inspirion Mini 10 Guides here. Those guides will show you the location and size of the HDD.

The fact that you get the message "operating system not found", means that the person that sold you this unit has wiped the Hard Drive, so there is no data on the HDD.

You will have to purchase your own Geniune Microsoft? Windows CD to install the Operating System yourself.
Considering the age of the unit, one would suspect that Windows? XP, or Windows? Vista? would be the Operating Systems that would suit the machine.
All the necessary Drivers are also available from the link above.

Please post back with your thoughts/queries.

Hello,

I've been asked to look at my friends netbook, its a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 and won't boot up correctly.

The netbook switches on, goes passed the Windows XP screen and just opens the desktop only showing the wallpaper.

I have looked on many forums, and people recommend Ctrl + Alt + Del to oen the task manager and then run new task > explorer.exe. This does load the desktop icons but nothing seems to be responsive. I also deleted some Reg files instructed on several forums
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\explorer.exe

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\iexplorer.exe
Once these keys are deleted the desktop and internet explorer should come back to life. But it doesnt.

My friend then told me that she doesnt care if I restored the netbook to its factory settings, as she didnt have anything of importance on the hard drive.

I thought excellent this will save some hardwork. Looked at instructions online people said Ctrl + F11 to boot up the restore screen, doesnt work, also tried Ctrl + F8 as some suggested this, nothing works tried every combination.

I was then told I should use an XP boot disk, but not having a cd drive doesnt really help.

What can I do to solves this problem, apart from buying a new laptop, any guidance would be much appreciated.

Has anyone had any experience with a Dell Inspiron Mini 12 (its model number is actually 1210)? In particular how well does it play video on Windows XP; say a ripped standard DVD or downloaded video of 640*360 resolution.

I have borrowed one from a colleague but it runs a non-optimal version of Ubuntu (it came with Vista Basic). I would really like some feedback from someone who has one running Windows XP with all the supplied drivers. This one's video drivers are very poor and you can't set it to the native resolution of 1280*800. If I try to play a 640*360 clip in full screen mode on Totem Movie Player if fails miserably.

From the reviews I've read I'm pretty sure that it is quite capable of playing standard video I would just like some reassurance from someone you has tried it out.

I really like its form factor. It is only slightly heavier than my Acer Aspire One with a great screen and keyboard.

Thanks in advance.

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.

My Inspiron Mini netbook has suddenly had its screen colors whacked out. This just started happening today. All of the sudden, all white (#FFFFFF) becomes pink (as in the standard transparent color) and all black (#000000) becomes green. This only happens to pixels that are exactly white or black.

Also, the screen resolution is messed up somehow - I set it to the usual setting of 1024x768, but the screen stretches beyond the bottom of the screen - only the top half of the start menu shows up at the bottom left.

I have two operating systems, and this problem occurs in both OS's and in the BIOS.

Finally, this problem occasionally goes away for up to a few seconds at a time, only to return the same way. This started happening while browsing the web.

I'm sure this is a hardware problem because it happens no matter what software is running.

Please help!

A:Dell Inspiron mini BSOD Multiple IRP

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Dell Inspiron Mini 1011
Windows XP

Anywho, I've recently been experiencing slowness on my netbook so decided to do a system restore. I honestly thought it would be as easy as doing it on my Packard Bell (desktop machine) but it isn't! I really don't want to feel like I'm bugging everyone with what could be such a simple problem but believe me it isn't! I googled the hell out of this all I got was either that Dell Inspiron doesn't have a System Restore (BS in my opinion), or you have to press CTRL + F11 when the Dell Logo appears on the start up screen or it's F8 (for Vista only I think).

So OK, I've tried all of the above, including the two commands displayed on the loading screen (F2 Setup, F12 System Boot (i think something or other :| ) and so far what I got is nil! What do I do!? This drives me insane! And the fact that the netbook is already slow at start ups doesn't help, yes I've disables all of the unneeded start up programs but it doesn't help.

Bottom line is how do I perform a complete System Restore on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10(11)

I've backed up my files (My Docs, Desktop and Favourites) on to an external hard drive!

Also when the loading screen displays the F12 & F2 button is it necessary for me to press the Fn button to get the F keys working (F12 + F2)?

Hi all,

Ok dont know if this is the correct place to post this or if anyone can help but here goes.

I have a dell mini 1018 which got dropped and now has HDD issues. This happened in july 2012. I tried recovering my files and it didn't work. SO i put it in the cupboard and was going to send it away to recover my files but since it was a hardware fault the thought of ?300 for physical recovery made me a little sick. Anyway, thought i'd give it another go and luckly i have managed to recover all my files. I dont care about my programs as it was fairly new and not much on there.

The netbook contains 1 HDD with 2 Partitions

1 c:\ (OS)
2 d:\ (recoevery) about 10gb

The netbook doesn't have a cd/dvd drive and instead uses a recovery partition. I have brought the exact same HDD and am trying to image the drive but i am getting CRC errors.

My question is if i manage to image both the partitions and the recovery partition has no CRC erros then i should be able to use the recovery to reset back to factory settings on the new HDD ?

Im using DriveImageXML to backup each partition but how would i loading them onto the new HDD, would i have to partition the drive first ? i guess it would have to match the same setup as the original.

DOes anyone have any experience in this or know where i could go to to find out ?

A:Dell Inspiron Mini water problem

I can tell you what I would do; but, it is only a shot in the dark.

Remove the battery. Place the laptop slightly open and on its front edges over a central air outlet register in a position that it looks like an "A" frame with its apex at the top. Leave it there for a couple of days.

If that doesn't help, you're in for a big repair bill from a professional shop, or maybe a new laptop.

This is the method I have used for years to thoroughly dry keyboards, including laptop keyboards, that were so excessively dirty or soaked with sugary drinks that I had to literally wash them submerged in hot, soapy water. I used this method also on a laptop once and it also came alive after a couple of days.

Hello Everyone!
Ive been facing a peculiar problem with my Dell inspiron mini 270 of late. Its power light wont go off even after I switch off the laptop thus indicating that it is still being charged! What is even more strange is that in such a state I cannot restart my laptop until after the power light goes off on its own after a few hours. After repeated attempts, I have come to understand that this indicates that now the battery is discharged. Now when I put the power adaptor on and switch on the laptop, it starts. This effectively means that every time I charge the battery and switch off the laptop after some work, I HAVE to wait till the battery is completely discharged to start the laptop again. Guys, guys, I am at my wits end and have extremely close to tearing off my few remaining strands of hair. Any clues anyone?

A:Dell Inspiron Mini 9 No operating system found?

Hi Capi580,

It sounds as if you're experiencing hard drive failure. You can try to re-seat the drive, but the fact that the BIOS can see the drive but sees zero data/space leads me to believe the drive is dead. Is the computer still under warranty? Dell is pretty good about sending out replacement parts.

You can check the warranty status of your net book at support.dell.com. In the upper right hand corner, there's a drop down menu that says warranty information > warranty status.

Dell's technical support number is 1-877-293-1197. Have your express service code from the bottom of the net book ready. you're going to speak to a tech who's going to walk you through a few trouble shooting steps. after he determines your HD is bad, they'll usually send you out a replacement drive, assuming the computer is under warranty.

FYI, PXE is for booting from the network. The computer is only trying that since it can't read the HD.

properties, I see it has a status code 1. Microsoft says "This is very common with universal serial bus (USB) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE) 1394 composite devices...." The System Information tool > components > Problem Devices shows nothing.
Google revealed it is most commonly fixed by installing smart battery or battery meter software. No luck with that. It MAY be bluetooth- BT is enabled in BIOS. WIDCOMM software does not detect a BT device.

Hi, Recently the Tech guy at my work threw out a bunch of computer towers and other computer parts etc..In amongst all of that was a Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 with no battery or AC adapter. So I took it home and plugged in an AC adapter that met the specs. It powered up and says the following: SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 2
Warning: Immediately back-up you data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent. Press F1 to continue.I press F1 and it Starts Windows. It then goes to a screen stating Windows Error Recovery. Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. Then they give you 2 options. Launch Startup Repair (recommended) or Start Windows Normally. I tried both of these without much luck. During the Startup Repair it says Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. Well I know that the problem is obviously the hard drive is corrupt. I will need to replace the hard drive. I have tried to click F8 a ton of times during boot up and it won't get me to that option. I have tried plugging in an external cd/dvd drive and boot from the cd. It cannot get the mini 1012 to boot up that way. I changed the boot sequence to boot up from cd drive first. I don't understand why the F8 function won't work. Also during the System Recovery option I got it to a screen stating: To access recovery options, log on as a local user.

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.
 

A:Laptop (Win7 Dell Inspiron 1525) won't connect to desktop (XP Dell) wireless router

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.

I currently use drivers from 2008:

Driver Version 4.176.75.21 - 10/1/2008

for my Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card.

Whenever I run Microsoft Update it tells me to upgrade to the latest drivers, however, with the newest drivers I experience a SIGNIFICANT drop in throughput- something like from 108 mbps with my current setup to 1-15 mbps with the "updated" drivers.

I'd like to have the most up to date driver, but do not want to limit my Wifi bandwidth either. Any advice would be greatly appreciated-- all my system info *should* be in my profile.

PS I'm a brand new user, so I apologize if this is not a well written post!

A:Updated Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card Worse Connect

If the new driver causes problems and the old one works fine, best to just stick with the old driver. Typically you only need to update your drivers if you are experiencing problems or the new driver adds some functionality. Otherwise it is better to just leave well enough alone. If is listed as an important update, right-click the update and hide it.

If you are set on updating, you can try downloading the driver from the Dell website (link below) and uninstalling the old driver prior to installing the new driver. You can also look at the fixes and enhancements listed on the Dell site to determine if you really need it.

Ive had my laptop for 2 years and never had a problem with the wireless before now but after moving to a new house it initially connected fine but now either wont recognise the network at all, connects but then disconnects after a few minutes, or recognises and still wont connect. It works fine with an ethernet cable so it cant be my router.

I am using a dell WPAN 1397 mini card, i've run the diagnostics on it and it is working fine and is fully updated. However, when the connection diagnostic for the wireless failed on the gateway IP ping test. How can i fix that?

Ive tried to have a look at similar posts other users have posted. Some say about checking the wireless adapter is on by pressing Fn + F2, this doesnt seem to do anything.

Im really stuck here so i'd appreciate any help, thank you.

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.

HP mini only supports B and G but not N (I know I have one) are you using Win 7 or XP? Anyways, try this, remove all your wireless networks (advance wireless settings on XP or network and sharing center on win 7 or 8) then do a new scan and retry to connect to the new found router (if you can't connect) please verify the wireless setting in the router, please make sure the Network name is correct, you have the right wireless key, and that you router supports B and G, you may have to connect a Ethernet wire between the pc and the router and access the router by the gateway ip address to verify these settings.... If you don't know how to check this, then please ask
 
if this is not the case, you might be connecting to an open wireless network that might be far away and is appearing as unidentified
 
please verify all this and let me know

Hi, try to update the bluetooth drivers. That might help.

OR

1. Open Control Panel by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel search box, type Bluetooth, and then click Change Bluetooth settings.
3. In the Bluetooth Settings dialog box, click the Options tab and do the following:
To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth enabled devices, select the check box for Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer.
When a Bluetooth enabled computer is in discovery mode, it broadcasts a wireless signal that allows it to be detected by other computers or devices. This is sometimes called pairing mode. If you check this box, your computer will still be able to detect Bluetooth enabled devices that are in discovery mode, but they will not be able to detect your computer.
a) To allow you to add Bluetooth enabled devices to your computer, select the check box for “Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer”.
b) To be notified when a Bluetooth enabled device is trying to connect to your computer, select the check box for “Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect”.

My cable company recently upgraded its modems (oh, the fun...not!) There are 3 computers in my home, one which is connected directly to the modem, and 2 on wireless connections. The other wireless computer is maintaining an Internet connection without any problems, mine isn't.

When it tries to automatically sign on to the network, the wireless connection gets as far as "Acquiring network address", then stops. However, it will successfully connect to another network that is within range, so I'm pretty sure my wireless adapter isn't bad. Resetting the modem isn't producing any results.

Mine is a Dell Inspiron 2200 running Windows XP SP3. I'm using the wireless adapter that came installed with the computer, my anti-virus (Norton 2012) is up to date, and Windows Firewall is turned on. According to the cable company, my OS is supposed to be compatible with the new modem. The modem is an Arris Telephony Gateway.

Any ideas on possible causes and solutions?

Does anyone know for sure what is happening? And, if hidden background downloads are taking place how do I stop them short of logging off the Internet. I just need to speed up my Internet access to equal what it should be for a 56 baud modem.

I have tried running the network configuration settings many times and it has not helped. I reset my laptop as well, but it did not work. I even traded in my laptop for the same brand and everything to see if it was just the device but it still did not work.

What can I do to solve the problem?

Where would I go to buy a network card?

What should I look for when purchasing a network card

Edit:
I spoke with my ISP and disconnected from router and reconnected. Went to another wireless computer, and basically did a bunch of backflips and successfully connected to wireless network. Thanks for helping me!
 

A:Solved: Dell Inspiron 6000 no internet

What is the version and patch level of Windows on the machine? What are the symptoms of not being able to connect?

If both wired and wireless connections don't work, it's unlikely to be a hardware issue, since they use different hardware.

With a wired connection to the router, please post the following.
Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_addre... Read more

When i turn the laptop on at first it seems normal and it says i have an internet connection, but when i try to go on the internet it just puts up a blank white screen. It then tries to load a webpage and either freezes completely and the whole screen goes black or times out after about 10 minutes and says:

"The instruction at 0x73F9D86A referenced memory at 0x73F9D86A. The required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of 0xc0000185. Click OK to terminate the program"

then another error message pops up saying:

''Unspecified error occurred in AVG."

and if i try to use alt ctrl delete when the internet is all frozen the screen goes all black except for the pointer. then it comes up with an error message saying:

"Failure to display security and shut down options
The logon process was unable to display security options when CTRL+ALT+DELETE was pressed. If the operating system does not respond, press ESC or restart the computer by using the power switch."

PLEASE HELP!

Hi, I've had my laptop for a year now, and last week it stopped connecting to the internet. It connects to the network, but it always says "no internet access", even after connecting it to an Ethernet cable. Every other device in my home works just fine. It runs on Windows 7.

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 the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

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

(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
