Hello,

Please permit to add few lines.

Try this 1

Right-click on the "Internet Explorer" icon --> Properties --> Click on

"Connections" tab --> Click on "LAN Settings" button --> Make sure that

everything is unchecked (No options are selected) --> Click on OK --> Click on

"Settings" button --> Make sure that everything is unchecked (No options are

selected) under "Automatic configuration" and "Proxy server" --> Click on OK -->

OK.

Temporary disable your Antivirus\Firewall and check if you are able to access

Internet.

If the problem still exists then follow the instruction given by Zohaib R.

Good Luck

Hi klane96,

1. From the command prompt "Release" and "Renew" IP Addresses. Click here to find steps on how to do this.
2. If the wireless connection is available in your computer Run below MS Fix-Its:

a. Winsock Reset - Fix it
b. Automatically diagnose and fix common security setting on Windows
c. MS Fix it : Improve performance, safety and security in Internet Explorer

3. Download and update network card driver and BIOS from our support site. Note: Plug your computer to a good, working UPS before you update the BIOS. If you experience a loss of AC power or a significant voltage sag/spike during the BIOS flash, you will either have to buy a new BIOS chip or buy a new motherboard.
4. Run Dell 32-bit Diagnostics' Custom Test on Network card. Click here to find steps on how to run Dell 32-bit Diagnostics. If the Diagnostics returns any error code please add the exact text of the error code in your reply.
