Router not working as well with D620 as with my older D610

I work from home and recently upgraded from my old D610 to a new D620 (Dell computer). The locaton of my modem and Motorola WR850G router in my home has not changed but I'm not getting the range that I got last week with my old computer. Our house is not large....and I've always been able to get a high signal strength when being downstairs from the router. But now, I get a low signal strength and sometimes my connectivity to the internet drops all together. I have rebooted my modem and router. My internet company has verified that there is no "packet loss" on my internet connection. (?) What can be done to get the high signal strength back?

If your router has the external antenna the signal will increase when you point the antenna in the direction where the computer is used the most. It always helps to locate the router in a central area and on the upper floors of a house because the broadcast signal falls like rain. Another trick to try is to change your broadcast channel in the router, the normal default is channel 6. Each channel broadcasts at a slightly different frequency. Hope this helps...Tennis123

I need help, with a driver modem M5804 for DELL Latitude D610. I Installed Win 7 for Thin PC. Thank You.

Part of the problem is the version of Windows that you installed. The D610 does not have Windows Vista or Windows 7 support so they may not have drivers for Windows 7 on your computer.

You might try the Windows Vista modem drive for the D620 to see if the modem is close to the one in your D610. Note most of the Vista drivers will work with Windows 7. However you may have an issue since you are running the Windows 7 for Thin PC as you should be running the standard Windows 7 HOME, PRO, or ULTIMATE on your notebook. Was there a reason you got this version?

My laptop dell d610 dont have a cd/dvd+RW it cannot burn cd or dvd, i want to download cd/dvd+Rw to enable to burn


It sounds like the problem is your hardware, the current optical drive you have installed cannot burn disks, not matter what software you download you will not be able to do this without the correct hardware. You will need to buy a new drive that is Read/Write capable from a local computer store.

Dell Latitude D620 no display on main screen!!


Hi,
If you have already replaced the LCD inverter cable and still the problem is there . You also told that the display is working fine when connected to the external monitor. This mean the Video controller on the motherboard is fine. This lead us to the conclusion that you would have replace the whole LCD assembly and not the inverter cable alone.


Thanks for using fixya

Upgrade of router giving connection problems


You need to check the settings on the wireless adaptor to make sure it is the same as the new router. If you had set the old router with a password, then you need to set the new one the same way. If the new router is not set with a password and the connection is open and not secured, then you need to change the settings of the computer wireless adaptor.

I cannot get the laptop battery to charge.


I had the same problem with a D620 at work. The laptop worked fine but the lights kept flashing on the front. I tried a few different things but it ended up being a bad battery. If the battery is less than a year old Dell will replace for free. Otherwise, you'll have to purchase a new battery.
