Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Will Not Connect To Wifi

I just recently had a new dell inspiron that my school provided to me and my class. The problem is i can't get my laptop to connect to my open wireless network. I asked my friends if they had the same problem and they didn't. They said once their wifi was on, the laptop automatically connected to it, except for me. My wireless network is visible in network connections and is the first one with "automatic" and a star next to it in wireless network connection. I click the 'connect' button and a pop-up says:

Please wait while windows connects to the "my wireless network" network. Waiting for the network. With a green status bar. After about two mins, it'll just disappear! I don't get any notification of some sort and goes back to where i started. I try to "repair the connection" and when i do, i get a pop-up from the task bar saying "unable to connect to wireless network". I do not know if it's the laptop or the wireless network. I connected laptops with my wifi before and there were no problems. I tried turning on & off the wifi switch, rebooting, i'm just so lost.

Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Problem

I have a dell inspiron mini 1012, it looked really awesome when i got it. Later i installed partition magic (big mistake) on the win7 starter. It asked me to fix a problem with my drive, i said ok. I restarted my pc & then windows get a blue screen and then restart & when i do f8 to go on recovery, i click on anything, its freezes, so i just managed to do a format. I did a clean format & now i have drive c:/ 200gb primary ntfs & d:/ logical, i tried so many times to switch between ntfs & fat 32, but no difference i see, except my removal hdd on ntfs says nltdr is missing or corrupted. So i tried every thing, i just got a bootable usb win 98. Worked , then got an error saying ' invalid or something', then formated , then tried win me, it was good! And installed the whole installation. But then came to identifying drivers and freeze, then win xp which never worked, i tried it in so many ways. Now i found a dvd called [dell win7 starter] came with my net book. The problem is, i have no dvd/cd drive in my dell netbook. I tried copying files on the dvd to a portable hdd , but nothing worked there.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10v Screen Problem

A week or two ago, my dell inspiron mini 10v got knocked over and the screen managed to get busted. I sent it to dell to get it fixed. I got it back today and found out that my screen is practically half fixed. One half of the screen is a few shades lighter than the other. And to top it all off, dell completely wiped my hard drive. I lost a ton of pictures and music because of it. I don't see why they had to wipe the hard drive if it was just a screen problem and i don't understand why they left the "fixed" screen like this, half light and half dark. Should i complain and send it back? I'm not sure what to do.

Play Sims 2 Or 3 On Dell Inspiron Mini 1012

Can i play sims 2 or sims 3 on the dell inspiron mini 1012?

Answer:- you will have some problems playing pretty much any post-2006 games on a netbook. Those things weren't exactly built for gaming, with the exception to the ones with nvidia ion built in. I have a similar toshiba netbook with almost the same specs and i have a lot of trouble gaming on it, so i wouldn't suggest it. But you could try if you really really want to and are ready for the game to crash.

Connect Wifi Printer

How to connect wifi printer? I got a wireless printer last week. I successful connected it to the pc and it works perfectly normal. However, i have laptop also and i wish i could print using the laptop also. I installed the printer's software on the laptop and it seemed as if everything would work- but it did not! When i go to control panel, it showed me the printer's brand (hp), which means that the laptop obviously recognizes the printer. However, when i go to printer's status, it is offline. How can i change the status? I'd be grateful if you told me what to do in steps! By the way, i've got a router also but i think it has nothing to do with that, or am i wrong?

Answer:- if the printer is connected to the router (wireless i presume) with a network cable, then you should be able to print to it with your laptop thru the router using the assigned network address of the printer, but you'll need to setup the network settings in the printer setup on your laptop. If the printer is attached to another computer, and that computer is attached to the router (again presuming it's wireless), then you'll need to setup print sharing on that computer, and it will always need to be on in order to print, as well as the shared properties on your laptop. You can also setup the printer to be physically attached to one computer and wirelessly to your laptop using what is referred to as "ad-hoc" wireless setup. All of these are options, but i don't know how you are setup.

Can't Connect To Wifi

I just got a new laptop with windows 7 and it works perfectly when im using a home connection that requires a password. But any public wifi i cannot connect. The locations do have connection, i just seem to be the only one who cant access it, like at school where my classmates can access it but i cant. It shows that i am connected but it says that i have limited connectivity and doesn't let me access the internet at all. I even disabled the firewall to see if that was the problem but i can't figure out what to do.

How Do I Connect Ps3 Through Wifi?

Answer:- you need to have the password to the network if you have a password. 1. Go to settings

2. Scroll down to network settings

3. Click internet connection settings

4. Click easy or custom. I prefer easy. 5. Click wireless

6. Click scan

7. Select your wifi network and select a security type. Most new routers come with wpa/wpa2 but older ones come with wep or none. None isn't recommended. 8. Type your password. 9. If it's successful, it will return you to the network settings page. To test it, go to internet connection test. Ps you will know if you are connected to the network because a small green light will glow (by your hdd indicator) and this will blink when you are accessing the network.

Connect Blackberry To Virgin Wifi

I scan for networks on my blackberry (curve 8900) and click on my virgin internet - it then provides a code and says, enter this pin into your wireless router. I am not sure on where to enter this code?

I found that i may need to enter my ip address into a web browser? When i do so it goes onto a website called d-link and it asks for my user name and password. Im assuming this is my router user name and password? If so how do i know this, because i have searched and searched and do not have a clue where it is.

How To Connect To Internet With Desktop That Has No Wifi ?

How would i connect to the internet with an older desktop that has no wifi? I fixed my dimension 4600, it's older and as far as i know, does not have wifi capability. I would like to connect this computer to the internet but all i have is a wireless network in my house. Is there some sort of part i can buy that can make that happen? Because nowadays you can't do all that much on a computer without internet. Answer:-
You are correct. Your dimension 4600 doesn't have wifi capabilities. Does it not have an ethernet connection? A place to insert an ethernet cable? You could plug an ethernet cable into your computer and connect the other end to your wireless router. You state, "all i have is a wireless network"; usually wireless access points have ports in the rear where you can plug ethernet cables. If not, or if no ethernet in the computer. Buy a wireless network adapter that is compatible with the operating system you are using. If there are ports in the rear of the wireless access point, you could also install in your computer a network card with an ethernet connection. Either way, those are your two options. The reason i emphasized the statement about your operating system, is that if you are running windows 2000, it may be a little more difficult to find a network adapter; after all, it's all about xp, vista, and win 7 now-a-days. One last thought, and i'm mentioning this since you state your desktop is older. You can get network adapters that are usb; be sure if you decide to use usb that your computer has usb 2. 0. If it has 1. 0 or 1. 1, check that the usb adapter you are going to purchase will work with it.
