Won't recognise Modem or ethernet cards

My Latitude won't recognise either the modem or the ethernet card. There is a symbol on the LED display that looks like a card all the time. PCMCIA properties lists nothing. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Computer won't recognize driver

Turn the modem off. Disconnect the electrical power.
Reconnect the electrical power. Turn the modem on.
This "resets" the modem, and you should be good-to-go.

Or, telephone your Internet Service Provider's "Help Desk", and get them to trouble-shoot.

My fiance is the the military! I sent him my old Dell latitude CP ... I forgot that it doesn't have a phone plug to connect to the Dial up on base. Is there a way to connect to the internet I don't...

I bought my sister a Dell laptop that didn't have a dial up modem in it, never saw one that didn't have one.
Dell sells a dial up modem that goes into the usb port for about $35, which I sent to her and it works. Basically it is just an external dial up modem.
Give it a try, just call the dell help phone number.

Presario 900 laptop what internet dongle do i need to connect to internet.

that completely depends on what kind of internet service you have.
The laptop has a Ethernet connector so, if you have a internet connection in your home you should be able to connect it with a wire to the router or the modem and it should work.

Connecting a cpi to the internet ?

1) You can use a PCMCIA card (for example a Dell Fast Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX by 3Com) with a 'dongle' to connect to the ethernet cable via an existing card slot on the left side.

2) You can get a docking station set-up (i.e. Latitude 'C/Dock') which comes with the ethernet cable connection. ...pretty affordable used on the 'net.

3) If you has a wireless router you could hook a wireless USB adapter tp connect wireless to yout router.

Wireless Network for my laptop

You must purchase a wireless router. I recommend Linksys. If your laptop has ethernet capabilities this will work just fine. (ethernet ports look like oversized phone cord ports) they are very simple to use and install in minutes. just be sure to make sure your network is password locked!
If this helps, I would really appreciate a FixYa! rating. If not, do not hesitate to contact me. I own a linksys wireless router, and can help you install it, if need be. Have a good day!

Internet connection

Hi, A couple of questions first...Does the computer have a network port connection somewhere?
Do you already have the modem or is there a modem in your laptop that you wish to use?
Have you setup your account with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)?
What type of Internet Service are you having or getting?
How old is the Laptop?

Why I ask is that generally if you have already setup your account with your provider, and depending on the type of account you have chosen they provide the modem and cables for you. All you have to do is plug it all in.
Please let me know and I can give you more details.
