Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Wireless not working

I have a Dell Latitude D600 and sometimes my wireless card will not engage. Meaning the computer says that the wireless card is non existent. The solution i have found to this problem is when the computer is fully booted and the card is not found I turn off the computer, wait 60 seconds, reboot and wait to fully boot, if the wireless is still not working restart the computer, in the first screen you have the option to press f2 and f12, you press f2 to enter setup, you then go to the expandable area and keep flipping through all the pages until it says the wireless card is there, then exit the setup and log in and it works. I believe i have a dell 1395 mini pci wireless card. If anyone could help me so I don't have to go through these long steps it would be greatly appreciated.

    I would think maybe somethign in the registry on boot up or check bios to make sure sees the card there and set properly

  • thejohnsonsn Nov 16, 2008

    yea then i would say the only real way to fix is either to reload OS from scratch or if you know what your doing in XP in run a repair of the OS

My dell latitude d600 is not recognizing any wireless connections. I believe the switch is at top of the keyboard and it doesn't seem to be working. Any advice


if it is not seeing any wireless networks, the wireless card may be defective, try having it tested, or check the device manager to make sure the drivers are installed correctly for the wireless network adapter

Lan connection has disappeared from network but wireless works


Have you run the Dell Diagnostics test? reboot the computer and hit the F12 key, scroll down to the diagnostic option and run the test, it will check hardware and memory etc.

Bad Wireless Connection


This is usually caused by a driver glitch. From the device manager, uninstall the drivers for the wireless, then reboot. The machine will find and reinstall the drivers. If the problem persist, the take the card out, clean the connections, and reinstall it. It's located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. If it still won't work, then you need to replace the wireless card.

WIRELESS CARD FOR LAPTOP


Hi

Your did not provide any info on which card you have or wish to install; USB, PC Card, or internal mini PCI card.

For mini PCI cards, first you have to open up the D600 laptop and install the Hardware (ensure to connect the antenna cables) then power-up and install the software (drivers and utility).

For USB and PC Cards, follow the device manufacture's recommended steps. Generally, for USB devices, the software (drivers and utility) needs to installed first before the hardware is connected.

If you have successfully installed the hardware and software (driver/utility) you can scan, choose and connect to an available wireless access point or wireless ad-hoc setup. This can be done through the wireless manufacture's utility or from Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility. If you use the manafucature's utility, Windows Wireless Zero Configuration utility will not work; will not scan or list available wireless network.

Wireless card not recognized


Make sure you are using the latest driver and software for the card. If you haven't already done so, I would also suggest trying the card in another computer, and a known good card in your D600, to see if the problem stays with your computer or follows the card. If it follows the card to another computer then it is most likely a problem with the card itself. If other known good cards also fail in your D600 it might be something with the D600 card slot. If the slot is the problem then I would recommend contacting Dell tech support. Larry Dell Customer Advocate
