Question about Dell Inspiron 8100 Notebook
You seem to be 'The Man'. I have an Inspiron 8100 which is plugged into a docking station. The ethernet works fine on the laptop, but not when plugged into the docking station. Dell customer service sucks and I need help.
If you have a solution can you please e-mail me at email@example.com.
Any advice you have will be appreciated. Thanks soooo much!
Some docking stations require device drivers in order for the ports to work. Try the link bellow for any drivers that are for the docking station. They're generally under utilities or applications, but could be else where. If there are no drivers, or if they don't work, then I suggest having the port checked. It could be a bad port. Also try any updated ethernet drivers for the machine, if it uses the machines integrated ethernet, then it could be the controller driver as well.
