Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Dell laptop with wireless card unable to connect to network

\015 My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 6000 with the Intel PRO/Wireless card that is able to locate and connect to "unsecure" wireless networks in my neighborhood but I decided to create my own wireless network and installed my own Linksys WRT 120N wireless router on my desktop. I have a DSL modem and followed the directions to hook up the router and create the network. The laptop will find the network but is unable to connect to it. I have now tried every different security setting imagineable but no network connection. Argh!! Is it a compatibility issue? Any ideas?\015

Answers :

The specs for the Dell Inspiron 6000 with the Intel PRO/Wireless card\015\012are list as 802.11b or 802.11g while the router you bought uses 802.11n.
\015\012
\015\012Your best bet at this point would be to either return the linksys\015\012router and get an 802.11g model which is slower than 802.11n, but will\015\012be supported by your laptop. Or you can buy a 802.11n wireless adapter\015\012for your laptop to connect to your new router. Either way the rules of\015\012wireless are you need your device and router to be speaking the same\015\012wireless standard. So, pick 802.11n or 802.11g and stick with that\015\012standard for your gear.

You may not have found the right security setting. Most wireless routers have a Wep key encryption, Number they come programmed with. It is usually one the BOTTOM of the router. WHen you connect to your Network look for a prompt to enter your Wep Number and it should then work.

\015\012You may not have put in the correct DSL Password etc etc and this can be a royal pain in the **** !

\015\012THRUST ME DUDE:
\015\012Installing these Routers is not such a simple matter and if you are still having problems call their Customer Service Line ... You may have missed something or have to resert someting in the Router and Really it's nothing to be ashamed of if you have to cry HELP to the Indian or Filippino that Answers your call hehe. I have a Ph.D. in Comp Sci and still find it necessary to call when installing them. Linksy's Techs are well trainned and if anything know these Routers inside out; some of the stuff is propriatary and they are the only ones that can help....just call Dude, Give up! Not worth the Stress! You'll Live to Fight another day :) !!
