Since this is an external wireless card, you should install the driver software that came with the wireless card or download the appropriate driver from the vendor's website BEFORE you install the wireless card, be it USB or PCMCIA. In most cases, at some point the installation will request you connect the wireless card.

FYI. When you don't see a device in Device Manager, it is typically a hardware issue or the OS perhaps is corrupted and may require a OS repair or reinstallation.

Not sure I understand you what you mean. Let me recap:
1) Your LAN adaptor was working before you reloaded Windows XP Pro.
2) Now it’s not showing up in “Device Manager”.
If this is the case, there must be some software driver missing. Make sure there are no other devices that have an error. Double check Dell’s website at www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Thank You.

I have an 'old' PackardBell easynote R1935 which i have formatted and reinsalled XP Home edition. All is well except i cannot get the wireless LAN to switch on (via F1). The driver is functioning...


I have seen some laptops where there has been a wireless symbol on a function key that doesn't seem to do anything. It might seem a silly question, but there isn't a physical switch somewhere along the front or side edges is there?

Toshiba 7140CT laptop only recognizes 65000 kb of new 250gb hdd when started with FDisk


An nice old machine!
If I recall correctly, FDISK low level formats partitions and I don't think the new hard drive will accept it without struggling. The bios on the mother board will not accept a drive as large as 250Gb as they didn't exist when the Bios was made.
Try partitioning as you require and format either FAT16 or FAT32 with another machine and see if it will accept it. I think the Bios was restricted to 6Gb drives so you may need to set up a lot of partitions!

Hope this helps.

Toshiba Portege 7200 i try to fomat it it does no format why


Windows won't as a rule allow format of an older system onto a newer system, it goes into protect mode.
If you are trying to format the laptop with say XP and you have XP with SP3 installed, because SP3 is newer than XP it will try to stop you from destroying the newer system. Matbe you are running out of space?

Ethernet not work


Check in the Device manager to see if all the devices are enable and working.
The one with a yellow ? against that device requires a driver installation.
Is the LAN device OK?
How do you intend to setup your LAN, is it for Internet access or a home network?
I need more information on your problem, together with error messages.

Wireless internet problem


Hi

I think your Operating System (OS) software installed after formatting does not have drivers for the wireless network card.

You did not provide any clues about the OS and the Network (Model/Brand) installed.

Dell Inspiron 6000 did ship with Windows XP as the Default OS and Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card or Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG, 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Cards as options

First, check the Original System Configuration to find out the built specification of the Inspiron 6000.
Enter you system tag. Click on the Original System Configuration Tab. Check the factory built specification and note the Wireless Card installed from the factory. If you have not changed or upgraded the Wireless Card, download and install the drivers from the list below.

Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card Drivers
Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG / 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Card Drivers

I am almost sure you will need drivers for the Chipset, onboard network and video.
Intel Mobile Chipset
Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller Driver v.4.25
Video (as above check the factory spec if you ordered the ATI MobilityRadeon X300)
Intel Graphics Video (onboard) Driver v.6.14.10.4609
ATI MobilityRadeon X300 Driver v.8.162-050803a2-025823C

Let me know how you get on.
