Dell Inspiron 8000 Can it be wireless?

Q: Dell Inspiron 8000 Can it be wireless?

i have a friend who has a Dell Inspiron 8000. I can't figure out where to put a wireless card. I do not see any slots for it. Does anyone know if a wireless card can be used with this model? I don't think it had built in wireless. Seemed to old for that.

Thanks for your help

Preferred Solution: Dell Inspiron 8000 Can it be wireless?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

According to the specs of that Inspiron, it has two PC card slots on the side of the case....somewhere usually on the right side toward the back of the computer. And no, it's not wireless built in.

It could use a PCMCIA wireless card.

Someone I know just recently gave me an Inspiron 8000 but he says the hard drive is messed up. I try to turn it on and it has the Dell loading screen, then the screen goes black, but then it just going back to the loading screen. It does that process over and over. The hard drive does make a suspicious clicking sound every time the screen goes black. The original OS was Windows ME but I'm not sure what it is now. Should I risk $60 (on newegg) and buy a new hard drive? What should I do?
 

A:Dell Inspiron 8000 problems

if it si merely the hard drive that is bad. ( and it definitely sounds like the HD is toast) you should get a boot up message about no boot device found etc.

try accessing the bios during boot up, if you can then replacing the hard drive should give you are workable laptop. if he didnt give you the dell xp disk your goiing to need a copy of windows.

Thank goodness you people are around!!

I'd like to upgrade my Dell Inspiron 8000.
Currently has 256mb RAM - I know it can only go up to 512mb RAM.
Which brand of Memory is best??

Alos, I'd like to upgrade the hard drive also.
Currently has 10GB.
Does anyone know the maximum GB's for this computer hard drive?
Which brand of hrad drive should I buy?

If I get max RAm (512mb) and max hard drive (GB's) would it be
possible to then install Windows XP on to this computer?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You have to purchase compatible RAM. Go to www.crucial.com, and allow it to scan your system to determine what options are available.

You can install Windows XP. I doubt it would run Vista well.

I'm replacing the 10Gb HD on my old Dell Inspiron 8000 with a new 80Gb HD (both HDs are Hitachi Travelstar).

I was planning on cloning the present HD to my Maxtor 320Gb External HD, and then cloning that to the new 80Gb HD using Maxtor MaxPlus.

I'd appreciate any advice (particularly if there are better ways than I'm planning) on exactly how to do this. And will it be a problem cloning down from the larger external HD to the smaller new HD??

sounds to me like the backlight has gone. Try looking at the screen under both bright and low light to see if you can see an image - if you can this would confirm the diagnosis.

This is first post, so please excuse any display of ignorance from me.

I know that the hard drive is bad. It will not let me boot up to try and recover data. Last resort is to send to a data recovery specialist.

If the drive is cool, it will try to boot, but it is looking for a corrupted file, "ntoskrnl.exe" in the \System32 dir (Win 2000 Pro). Is there a way I can transfer this file onto the drive?

I have tried to Repair with the Dell reinstall CD, it does not work. It hangs up during the checking C:\ drive portion. I tried it under the Console Recovery and same thing. Also tried the "fixboot"; it did not do anything for me.

Any Suggestions?

Your help is appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Dell Inspiron 8000 Connection Problem

Hey Nelly,

i'm on my way out for today, but i can tell you this, check out for the inspiron 8000 specifications maybe on the manual if you have it or else, in the internet. I guess 8000s use 3com network cards(not completely sure), so what you need for get that card running is the driver software. If it is a common 3com you can find it here http://www.network-drivers.com/companies/294.htm or else, if it is not a 3com card check out the list at www.network-drivers.com for the right card brand you have.

A:Laptop (Win7 Dell Inspiron 1525) won't connect to desktop (XP Dell) wireless router

Sometimes, you need to replace the router.
Sometimes, you can call your service provider and ask them to take a look on line to see if the subscription needs to be refreshed.
But often, all that is needed (despite the fact that it is a lot of work) is to uninstall your existing system, then reboot, and reinstall everything.
You might also find success by looking at your device manager in Windows to see if you have any grey, red, or yellow flags by any related device. That may show you have a permanent hardware failure if you cannot restore it, then you are off to the store or your provider for a new cable modem or router.

Hi mmann

It could be that the cable connecting the LCD to the laptop has gone bad and is opening up in certain positions. You could also try reseating the connector between the system board and the display. It could be making a bad contact. The same with the other connectors in the LCD display itself.

It "failed to work" on both systems. In what way? What error msgs?

Have you checked the Linksys website to see if you can down load the necessary drivers?

Are you running XP?

Did you try to let XP install the device on its own?

Please try to be less vague about the facts....it makes it hard to know what is really going on!

Im reformatting for a friend, or rather, finishing what someone else started. I have the entire system online with the exception of TWO components, one of which is the wifi card. None of the Dell drivers work and I do not know what actual card is in the system.

Here is what's missing according to the device manager:

Network controller (wireless card I assume)
SM Bus Controller
I have downloaded all the "recommended" drivers according to the dell support system, to no avail. Im curious if anyone else has ever run into this? I have never had this kind of issue. Either windows upate finds it or the driver is available.

I have this notebook & I can't access my wireless networking.
here are more details:
This thing has an internal wireless device, right?
when I turn it on on keyboard (Fn + F2), bluetooth works, but no wireless adapter
when it's turned on, I go to network & sharing settings, on the left side, there is no sign of wireless sth like "manage wireless networks"...!!!
I've tried 5 type of drivers, all 4 this notebook.
please help, I'll be thankful, If you DO!
In addition, my OS is win 7 ultimate x64 & I'd been using wireless before the last change of OS from x86 to x64... is it the problem?

This is the second time I have run into a wireless router that I cannot connect to on my Inspiron 1750. The wireless router is cisco E2000. I have the security key and I am unable to connect on my laptop. I was walked through this once before about a year ago by Dell, but don't remember exactly what I need to do. I would appreciate any assistance that you can.

Are you able to successfully connect by ethernet? By wireless with encryption disabled?

Hi

Hope someone can help with this one because Dell can't. My laptop has a wireless card. I have a Hawking Wireless 54g High Speed G Router HWR54g, this is connected to a D Link DSL 504 router.

My problem is that I can only get wireless connectivity whilst I am in my own home. As soon as I take the laptop out of the house, although the internet says its connected to any unsecured network, the web pages are "not available".

This defeats the object of having a wireless laptop. As I am a total novice could someone shed some light on this one as I am going away soon and want to take the laptop with me.

The wireless card has been replaced by Dell but that has made no difference.

Thanks for looking.

I have Windows XP Home - Dell Laptop Inspiron 2500. Currently I am using high speed cable through Brighthouse/Earthlink. I want to go wireless and they told me that it will cost an additional $7.95 per month on top of the $45+ I am paying now for high speed. That's rediculous. I thought if you went wireless it would be less expensive. Any suggestions on a less expensive way to go?

I have downloaded SP2 and there is a new icon in my control panel saying wireless network connection. How can I determine if I have the card in my laptop that will allow me to connect wireless? Do I have the capability to even do this?

Thank you.

A:Dell Inspiron 530 can't pick up wireless card

Well, if you don't see the wireless card either under Network adapters or perhaps Other Devices with an error, it's not being sensed by the BIOS POST.

Have you reseated the wireless card?

i suspect you need the wireless driver
so connect to a router with a cable so you have internet

on the laptop will be a service tag number
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/en/identifyyoursystem

then goto the dell support site
http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Home/NoDefaultOS

enter the tag number or choose from the options on the right

and then download the wireless driver

if you want to know what type of wireless adapter you have

then for the device labeled

- Network controller (Caution Sign with Yellow mark)Click to expand...

do this

How to identify hardware in Device Manager

right click on the device with a yellow!

from the menu choose

Click on the Details Tab
Under the Property - drop down
Select hardware ids
Right click and select all
Then right click again and select copy
Copy and paste that information here

You should see a code similar to this

The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

Okay guys, i have been to many different forums and no one can find an answer for me. I recently deleted all partitions on my laptop and created a NFTS partition to install Windows xp media center on (the cd that originally came with the computer.) Before i did this, everything was working perfectly. Now, my wireless card will not pick up signals. When i turn on the wifi by pressing fn+f2 it says the wireless is on but the light does not light up next to the bluetooth (the bluetooth turns on and off properly when i press fn+f2. I believe that all necessary drivers have been installed and in the correct order. There isn't even a connnection in the network connections.

This is getting extremely fustrated because i have done this process many times on other computers, but i can't get this to work.

Any help would be greatley appreciated, thank you!

If the drivers you downloaded came from the Dell site that you have shown me in your screen shots. And you entered the right service tag to get to those drivers then they are the right ones.The problem lies in the current SP installed for Windows. I provided a link to download SP3 from Microsoft that can then be transferred to the machine in the same manner you are doing the drivers. This should clear up all the problems.

Can I use a:

Thanks! (There is a USB on the back...but are they all the same?)
 

A:Dell inspiron 3000 too old for a USB wireless adapter?

usb

I think it probably has usb 1.1. It should still work, it should have a windows 98 driver to help the computer recognize it. Usb 1.1 isn't as fast, so it probably won't be able to connect at 54mbps. Usb 1.1 transfers at 12mbps so that would be the max speed probably. Usb 2.0 is 480mbps, much faster.

Has your Dell laptop got a broken keyboard... can't switch on wireless adapter by pressing F2?

This bugged me for months and didn't want to buy and fit a new keyboard. Finally figured out how to alter the BIOS settings to switch on the wifi card. Note you will need a usb keyboard plugged into the laptop to do this!

Reboot the laptop and press F2 on the external keyboard to enter the setup screen
find the wireless settings in the menu
there are two options here...
set it so that the wireless adapter is enabled but NOT that it can be toggled on/off via the switch (F2)
Apply then exit
When computer reboots right-click on network icon in system tray
open network and sharing centre
click on change adapter settings
right-click on WiFi adapter
choose connect/disconnect

Now treat yourself to a doughnut... you've just fixed it!

Hi there,
i recently bought a Dell laptop, Inspiron N4110. They gave me a series of driver and installed those drivers on my Windows 7 Home Premium. The problem is, the first time my wireless device won't connect and keep informed me that the driver not install.
So i decide to remove all the driver, then using the device manager to search for new hardware, and let the system determine which driver is match to the hardware. Now, my wireless device can connect. But, suddenly my bluetooth device won't connect, and the system informed that the driver not install.
I tried to use the step as i did with my wireless device, but the bluetooth device still won't work.
Anyone, please help. Thank you so much.
 

A:Dell Inspiron N4110 - Bluetooth & Wireless problem

You need to go to the Dell website and install the correct drivers, you'll need to use a USB stick/drive or the wired Ethernet connection to get those drivers onto the laptop.

Here's the Dell site, use the Service Tag number off the bottom of the laptop to get the exact drivers: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19?c=us&s=dhs&cs=19&l=en

A:Dell Inspiron One 2320 wireless driver problem?

Hi
Wireless drivers are available from Dell for your Dell Inspiron One 2320
 
http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/inspiron-one-2320/drivers
 
Depending on the Wireless adapter installed in your system you will choose either the 1502 or the 1702.
 
If your system has Bluetooth, most likely it is the 1702.
 
You can check the System Setup Program by pressing <F2> on boot to see if the BIOS specifies the Wireless Device in your system.
 
Another option is, to click the System Configuration link and enter your service tag number . This will  bring up the Original System Configuration for your system listing part numbers and descriptions for the components installed.
 
If 1502 download: Atheros Wireless 1502 WLAN Mini Card Desktops, v.3.0.0.238, A00 R305630.exe
 
If 1702 download: Atheros Wireless 1702 WLAN&BT Combo Mini Card Desktops, v.3.0.0.328, A00 R305632.exe
 
 
Best of luck and Please keep BC posted!

Hello, I am using a Dell Inspiron mini netbook with factory specs (as in just out of the box no modifications to the hardware or operating system) I am running Windows XP Home edition, and I am using a TP-Link wireless 2 in one modem (router and modem combined). My roomates are not experiencing any wireless internet problems so I do not believe it is the modem/router, my wireless keeps disconnecting me constantly and I am not sure what is causing the problem.

My Dell Inspiron won't connect to the internet via WI-Fi. But all other devices connect to it just fine.
I can only get access to the internet using an Ethernet cable.

I had this problem before, but it just magically solved itself after about 20 minutes of not doing anything. But it's been a whole day now, and nothing seems to work.

When I go on device manager, under Network adapter, it only lists one:
Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
And there's no exclamation mark or anything beside it.

I've tried:
-Restarting the computer
-System restore
-Restarting router
-System BIOS boot (A Dell representative walked me through the process)
-Download and installed wireless network driver adapters from Dell support page
-In device manager, tried to 'Scan for hardware changes'

Any help would be greatly appreciated in solving this mystery!

On the range extender, be sure and turn off any type of DHCP it may have on. DHCP should only be turned on with the router that is connected to the modem. Also plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on the extender, don't use the WAN port at all on that.

Besides those potential problems I'll post a link which covers about every problem with Unidentified Public Network which can be caused by a million different things but the most likely problems and some solutions are covered in the link.

It would also be worth trying to start up in safe mode with Networking to determine if the problem is caused from an installed program or A/V.

Hi, I apologize if this post has been posted before but only thing I could find was a thread of someone who had a similar problem but solved it somehow, randomly.

This is an *ancient* laptop...but it's been working perfectly the past lengthy years. Just recently, however, the wireless network does not work. It detects them so it's not that part of the wireless but for some reason, it will not connect.

With the cable, I can access the internet fine but won't work for the wireless

I'm not a tech-oriented person at all so I will most likely need step by step instructions and my jargon won't be accurate at all. Again, I apologize (especially if this is in the wrong forum!)

My internet has stopped working on both my wired and wireless connections.

Kimberley89 raised the same problem and i have been through the solutions suggested on thread number 928983 and have come to the end, as she did, with the problem unresolved.

When I load my machine it says:

"Your wifi catcher band configuration is not compastiblewith your WLAN card band configuration" "select yes to automatically change your wifi catcher or no to keep your current band configuration." Neither resolves the issue.

I too have the Dell wireless 1395 mini-card and run vista.

I was unable to do the SFC step:

"Cannot open boe\Desktop\SFCdetails.txt"

I havent run a registry check would you recommend this and if so advise on a suitable program as i do not have one.

The USB ports on my dell studio xps 8000 keep dying. the light on the mouse stops working, unplug it and plugging it back in usually fixes it. there's also the sound its makes when you unplug from usb then plug in. sometimes I only get the sound which freezes the cursor then it working again. other time mouse is completely dead (no light) passes dell full tests says nothing wrong

A:dell inspiron 6400 intel pro wireless 3945ABG card stopped working

Wehen you go into the device manger, do you see the wireless card?

Its quite possible the cards died, and yes they usually replaceable.

Have you by any chance dropped or bumped it fairly hard?

Hey guys,
I just bought a Dell Inspiron 3537 with 500 gb hard drive capacity, 4 GB RAM, no graphics card and came with UBUNTU as its OS. So I made a clean install of Windows 8.1 pro myself. All the drivers that have been provided by the site installed perfectly, except for the 1705 wireless and bluetooth driver :/ Please help !!It says that the driver isnt for my platform .. wth :@I even tried checking my drivers via Intel and it says that it doesnt recognize my wireless card.

A:Dell Inspiron 3537 , can't install 1705 wireless and bluetooth drivers on Windows 8.1 pro

Dell Wireless 1705 is not an Atheros Card therefore the Intel download centre will say its an unrecognised device. Follow the instructions here and provide the hardware IDs for your wireless card as sometimes the Dell Service Tag gives the wrong drivers:
http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/downloading-drivers-checking-hardware-ids-and-downloading-and-installing-dell-system-drivers-in-the-correct-order/
Does it match:
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036 PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&SUBSYS_020C1028&REV_01 PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&SUBSYS_020C1028 PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&CC_028000 PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0036&CC_0280
If so try this driver

Hi. . .

Glad to hear of Grad school -
Dissertation or thesis subject if I may?

The BSOD you posted has a bugcheck -

0xa (0x64, 0x2, 0x1, 0x81BA4DAE), no probable cause listed.

0xa = IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL = MS or kernel mode app accessed paged memory when it should not have (IRQL too high).

We'll get to wifi shortly - #1 right now is that you must install Vista SP1.

Please run the following to collect system info so I can help you get SP1 in. I wouldn't advise downloading it and install as there are prerequisite Windows Updates & other preps to be done.

Download Live SysInternals Autoruns from Microsoft TechNet and SAVE it to your DOCUMENTS folder. Next, download the attached zip and extract the batch file to your DESKTOP. Then go to desktop, right-click on the batch file and select Run as Administrator.

It will run for approx 5 minutes - you will see status screen. No interaction - just let it run. When finished, go to your documents folder and zip up the newly created folder named TSF_Vista_Support and attach to next post.

In the interim - please run the Vista Clean Manager -
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe above under programs | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd prompt/"DOS" screen will appear - type cleanmgr tuneup - check boxes.

Now disk defrag. Use Auslogics - download and install. Go to desktop, right-click on Auslogics icon, select Run as Administrator.

Any ? - please let me know.

Regards. . .
