I have a Dell Inspiron 1500 laptop, and run off of wireless internet. When I turned my computer on I had a blue screen (not the fatal one) but it disappeared shortly after, and I couldn't read what it said. The computer loaded normally after that and nothing is wrong except I can't access the internet. I checked all the cables and rebooted the linksys router. I checked the LAN connection and it says there is a network cable is unplugged. Let me know any solutions or information I would need to provide. Thanks in advance.

Right-click the LAN connection and see if it has "Repair" in the menu. Select that and let it complete. I have an Icon in the lower right which I use to gain access to my wireless connection when I'm using it.

The repair option is dimmed out. My only options are to enable/disable the connection. :whistling:

Probably it's dimmed out because it has been disabled?? :whistling: Try using the Enable selection and see if it will rebuild connection. Do you use Windows LAN setup or can you access the manufacturer's utility which will show you a lot more. I use Belkin's that came with the PCI wireless card and is installed from CD when I installed the wireless card. Was a lot easier to use than the Windows one.
