Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

I get a strong wireless signal but cannot connect to the web

\015 OS - XP\015\012\015\012DELL INSPIRON 1501\015\012\015\012The problem started when I downloaded Dell recommended BIOS drivers - The computer restarted and then when my desk top opened, my Icons looked like they were in Safe Mode, very large and all over the Desktop - I restarted the computer and when it came back to the Desk top my Icons were the normal size but in the same all over the Desk top position with a whole load of Dell Icons.\015\012\015\012Since then I have not been able to connect to the Internet via Wireless although my wireless signal is strong.\015\012\015\012It would appear that the IP address has been lost - I contacted my provider and we manually "reinstalled" the IP address/s but this still did not work - We found that it works via the LAN cable from computer to router.\015\012\015\012So we both agreed that we should System Restore to a date before I downloaded the BIOS drivers - But unfortunately, the system would not restore on any date I chose going back to February 2009?? I undersand that this is a common XP problem - cannot restore???\015\012\015\012I searched the Web (via the LAN cable connection) and found what I thought was a good suggestion to Restore the system and that was to disconnect System Restore - Restart the Computer and then connect the System restore - I did this but what it did not tell me was that if you do this then you will lose all restore points - Which it did - so I now cannot go back to a date before I downloaded the Dell recommended BIOS drivers (which I do not know if they downloaded but obviously whatever it did messed up my Wireless connection/s)\015\012\015\012Any help in restoring this would be appreciated.\015\012\015\012I am not too much of a techie but understand and can follow most things.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012\015\012Roger\015

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
