Having problems with your Dell Latitude C640 Notebook ?

Unable to connect to internet and/or iTunes on Dell c640 laptop. all other non-internet applications running fine. Could this be a 'bad' wireless card? Have owned this refurbed pc for less that 2 years & have already replaced wireless card twice. Is this a habitual 'problem' with this model laptop?

\015\012If you have a virus or malware that is not letting you connect to the internet or your settings have been corrupt, there is a simple setting that you can look for to correct the error. The most prevalent of these is that you can connect to the router and your network but you have no internet access. This is the one I will concentrate on here.
\015\012
\015\012Bring up your internet browser and click on “Tools”, scroll down and click on Internet Options.
\015\012Now click on the “Connections” tab. At the bottom of the page, click on the LAN settings button.
\015\012Make sure the box for “Automatically detect settings is checked. Now, Un-check the box that states to use a “proxy server for your LAN” at the bottom. Click OK and OK.
\015\012
\015\012Reboot the machine and try to connect to the internet, you should be able to. I have to also add that in some cases if you have “Selective Startup” selected through “MSCONFIG”….it may be beneficial to change that to “Normal Startup” until you get the other settings configured.
