Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

I connected the ethernet cable directly to the computer and tried to bring up the ip address for the router 192.168.2.1, still says "windows can not configure wireless connection". the LAN or high speed internet Wireless Network Connection and Local Area connection are both not working, and have an X. When I go to run:CMD, and then type IPCONFIG the comments are "ethernet adapter local area connection-media diconnected" "ethernet adapter wireless connection- media disconnected" please


Answers :

Start with the wired connection, because you're going to need it to verify the router is working. Do you get a link or activity light at your network jack on either the router or the computer?
\015\012
\015\012If you don't get link lights, try replacing the ethernet cable.
\015\012
\015\012If you do, go to the Lan Card/Local Area Connections and right click on the icon to make sure it's Enabled or to check the status. You will also want to make sure it's configured to obtain a DHCP automatically, or set your DHCP for 192.168.2.x where x is anything but 1. If this is the only computer on the network, you absolutely have to make sure that that the router address is 192.168.2.1 and you're in the right domain.
\015\012Do an IPCONFIG from any other machine on the network to verify that it's the same.
\015\012
\015\012Once you do get some sort of IP address, it should be a fairly simple task of logging into the router to make sure that your SSID is turned on and then start working on the wireless card. I assume that Dell machines have a wirelss switch that should be turned on to activate the wireless connection, turn it on and look for wireless signals in range.
\015\012Again, the Enable/Disable portion of the wireless card should be enabled and the switch turned on for the system to see wireless signals.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this works.
