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

JimmyCarter,

 

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?
