    Dell Inspiron 8600 Truemobile 300 Bluetooth module previously worked fine, had to reinstall Windows XP, wifi works fine but cannot turn on Bluetooth. When press Fn/F2 to enable wireless popup message says device not found...may be disconnected, not functioning, etc. If go to Bluetooth configuration panel, click Hardware tab, it says "device not found". I have uninstalled/reinstalled software doesn't help, also disabled Bluetooth in Device Manager and had it reconfigure with plug n play also no help. Maybe the Bluetooth module is damaged? Can't think of anything else.

Look at boot, in setup (F2):
Go to wireless page (Alt-P Twice)
Check if Bluetooth onboard card is detected.
If not, it may be and hardware problem;
Is this card really installed?
Check bluetooth cable connector (where the hard disk is)...

Regards
Stabilo.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 8600 validating problems

This is a problem associated with a wireless connection. What it is asking for is the identity of your wireless lan. That is, the name the router is broadcasting. This is called the network ID.and is what you must supply when asked. If you untick the IEEE.802.1 you disable the connection. You will also need to have the nework securety code (WEP) to logon.
