Right.doa...I’ve got an old clunky Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop. It was my brothers,but I pinched it...(long story). Anyway...since we upgraded to Sky Q, it wont connect to the internet. Did before,wont now. when I say I have tried everything..I have...I’ve googled...tried to repair the cocking thing,even plugged an ethernet cable in...nope.

I’ve got XP books...tried all that advice twice...zilch. Give me some ideas here. Why wont the cocking thing connect? I dont actually need this one connected to be fair...its a matter of principal now.

Everything else connects,and this DID,before we got SkyQ .

I bet it's that fcuking wps button shit again [9n5.gif]
It's driven me mad in the past and turn me into the man I am today :blush:

Hold the wps button down for 3 sec's and then try to connect.

And this depends on how old this Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop is :think:

If its this one from 2006:

Quote:
Specs for Inspiron 1300 2006
Intel Pentium M Processor 740 (1.73GHz/2MB Cache/400MHz FSB*)
15.4-inch WXGA display
512MB of RAM (2 stick configuration)
Intel integrated Media Accelerator 900 graphics card
60GB Hard Drive (5400RPM)
Microsoft Windows XP Home
24x CD Burner/DVD Combo drive
Dell 1470 Internal Wireless 802.11a/b/g
56Kbps Modem and Integrated Network Card (ethernet)
Dimensions: Height 1.41", Width 14.0", Depth 10.5"
Weight: 6.7lbs (with 4-cell battery)
4-cell Lithium Ion Battery
Ports: 3 USB 2.0, VGA out, Modem RJ-11, Ethernet RJ-45, audio line-out (for speakers headphones), external microphone port, ExpressCard 34 slot


The wireless card may have just come to the end of its life after 12 years of abuse. And if the ethernet cable is not working too, this is what might have happened.

Take the lappy to a coffee shop or friends house and try it out on there internet before you bin it. Like I said at the start sky boxes have driven me mad for years. Those cheap frking boxes and there silly security setup's are a form of torture banned in 3rd world countries with tin pot dictators [1744330pz84739fis.gif]

Did you test this lappy on another network?
Are you sure its the wireless card?

If you still have the old router and the lappy working on it, why not connect the old router up as a bridge?
