Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

I have a dell inspirion with vista and I can not connect to the internet using a cable modem.


Answers :

Have you tried disabling your firewalls, f it came with norton 360 or norton internet security remove it and then try connecting if you can then its your firewall stopping it
another way to try without uninstalling is to click on the start button then in the search box type CMD and press return
in the command prompt that opens type
ping www.google.com and hit enter
if you get four packets sent and four received your firewall is blocking the internet connection. Remove it try the internet if it works reinstall it and it will detect the new network and allow you access.

type ipconfig in the command prompt window and hit enter if you get a 169.x,x,x x=any number then the laptop has no ip. Make sure that the network card isnt disabled
if they all fail and the laptop hasnt got an ip address, then the problem is the cable modem, is the internet active? I.e. you can plug it into another pc and it works
