Re: Ethernet and wireless not working (brand spanking new Inspiron N4050)



Did you setup your wireless router?


How to login to your wireless router and use these Recommended Wireless Router Settings I use chhannel 11. I would make a new SSID to make connecting easier.


The 169.254 ip address can be from an electrical storm or a power flicker. Try the power cycle listed below.


  • Power off your ISP modem/router and your wireless router(if any) for 30 seconds. Then power on the ISP modem/router. Wait 15 seconds, then power on the wireless router(if any)

Restart the computer and try to connect.

What happens?





What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
