Re: Ethernet and wireless not working (brand spanking new Inspiron N4050)
I reformatted the computer with Windows 7 Ultimate just now - I needed to change it from Spanish to English anyway. I installed the necessary drivers from the Dell disc that came with the laptop but for some reason they didn't include a driver for wireless access. That's alright though since I prefer fixing it via ethernet. I can download all the other drivers once I can connect with the modem via the ethernet. As before, it is unable to identify the network. I have tried to access the router on other working devices via a web browser using the default gateway but it always times out. Maybe the modem doesn't have a user interface (HTTP server) or something.
