Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

My computer is not connecting to the wireless network


Answers :

First step, check whether the LED that indicates wifi is lit on your laptop. If not turn it on. Check whether you can connect. Else.
Step2.To start with we assume that you have the icon showing your wireless (picture with a monitor and a red cross) is there. If that is the case, right click on this icon. Then click "view available wireless networks". You may see a list of names, which may say unsecured wireless, security enabled wireless and security enabled (WPA) network. Find the name of your network from the list. If you could find the name of your network and if it is showing fairly good signal strength and it is written manual there, you are almost there. click on the name of your network. Then click connect button at the bottom. You will see a popup asking you for the network key. Enter the key (password) and click the button connect. It will take a few minutes to connect and will go back to the previous page. You will see the status being changed to connect with a star. Close the window and you should be able to browse the net.
Step3:
If you do not see the name of your network, then you will have to enable SSID. meaning your wireless rounter has to broadcast the SSID.
To make it easier I am assuming you have the broadband device (modem) connected to the cable, all lights on it are lit, you have the router connected, to the broadband device through the
CAT 5 (network) cable to a desktop and the Internet symbol on the router is lit. (simply put you should be able to connect the Internet from a hardwired system). Open a web browser. Get hold of the quick connect guide you received with your wireless router. There should be a web address. something like 192.168.1.1 Enter that address in the address bar of your brwser and enter. You will reach the router configuration page. Enter the username (probably) admin and password (probably) admin . You will have this information also on the quick connection guide. click OK. Once the page opens, you will see the setup wizard. Click wireless setting and then click advanced on the left hand side. In the page that opens, click enable wireless router radio and click on enable SSID broadcast. Click apply and exit out. Your router may reset itself. wait a few minutes. check whether all LED's are on, on the modem, and whether the Internet icon is lit on the router. If yes check your laptop proceed to Step 2
If these steps do not succeed, you may go back to step 3 and configure the "Basic settings" on the setup wizard. However, if that is the case, it would be easier to call the customer service of your router company and let them walk you through the process.
