Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop ?

My Dell Inspiron 1525 has been connected to wireless networks in the area and working perfectly. Suddenly this morning the connection was disabled and now it tells me there are no networks available. However I am using an old Samsung desktop just two feet away and it's connected to the same wireless network and working perfectly. How can that be? Any ideas?


Answers :

Sometimes when you boot up the wireless card does not get an IP address from the wireless router. If you have an wireless icon on the task bar with a red X on it then right click on this icon and click Repair, if not go to the Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on the wireless connection and Repair. This will force the wireless router to issue the wireless card with new IP address.
\015\012If this doesn't work check the Device Manager to see if the wireless card is enabled and functioning, if not reinstall the wireless driver and configure it to match the wireless router settings.

Network Connection I recently signed up for DSL from MediaCom. I had Bellsouth dialup previously. Can't get the DSL to work on my desktop - works fine on the laptop with no problems.

I've checked every parameter, every setting - compared them to the laptop, and still no joy. I'm at wit's end on
