Having problems with your Dell Latitude X1 Notebook ?

Home networking I have a D-Link wireless router in my office at home which I connect to either via ethernet cable or wireless for my Vaio Laptop. Recently a friend moved in to my house and wants to hook her PC to the network. The house is already networked and she has an ethernet cable coming through a hole in the wall. I did not network the house and plugging her straight in does not work. Or I get the old limited or no connectivity message. Do I need to do something with the router interface (


Answers :

You need to set DHCP off. START>>RUN>>services.msc scroll to DHCP and turn off stop and disable. Now you need to use the connect to internet wizard to connect after doing that. Ensure adapter is Enabled. and it has a password, belongs to same workgroup and has a name. Sharing is enabled. If using a WiFi you may have a WAP/WEP key, now this must be supplied to connect... if you have security, if so, then you will have to set up the network again, and take note of the "Key".
The router's lan connection are already set if it works on one cable it works on all 4...same with the wireless connection ..
the thing to be donne is to check the lan card of teh computer to be set ok ...
for most routers it is enough to set the tcp/ip to get an IP automatically amd it will work ..cause the router wlan is now the connection with the provider ..and you are connected to an internal work-group in which the router is the default gateway ..and the sub-net mask is the 225.225.225.0 and the ip is the next in line after the router.s one ...so ...if the automatic get an IP do not work ...do this ..
set the tcp/ip to automatically get an ip address..
after that in alternate configuration..choose user assigned... configuration ..and in there as follow..
the ip adress the next number after the one you have in your computer ...ex: 192.168.1.2 it is your ip in the computer u use..for this one choose the last digit 3
2nd. the subnet mask choose 255.255.255.0.
cause being a close workgroup this is the one to use..
3rd the default gateway will be the router ip ..for example 192.168.1.1
and the dns same as in the router's setings on the wlan..the ones u used before having the router but the direct with the provider..or let them on automatic..
Important ...!!
this setings will depend on the Ip that your router has by the factory ...so ...better take a look in your configuration ..and just put the same numbers excemt the Ip ..this will have a unit in plus..

Ethernet driver I just switched my laptop from Vister to XP Pro and I can't find a driver for the Ethernet card, in network connections the 1394 network adapter is there and it says its enabled but when I check it out it has no drivers and can't find a IP address. I'm pretty sure this has a Realtek in it but I couldn't find the right driver , I tried a generic one with no luck.
