Problem connecting old dell latitude to buffalo router

Hi, I have had an old laptop from an ex-employer cleared of passwrods etc and fitted with a wireless card. Whilst I was able (after a bit of a struggle) to connect my daughters brand new compaq I have been unable to get on to the internet on the old laptop. I am a computer cretin I admit but this is driving me mad. Anyone got any helpful ideas?

    HIya, thanks for your suggestions but i am still struggling. There is no network connections icon in the control panel. There is no wireless button that i can see and the operating system is Windows 2000. The laptop has a DLink Air G wireless card fitted. Any more ideas??? :)

  • deborah_hale Dec 22, 2008

    Hiya, I followed your instructions and the wireless adapter details were NOT showing. What should I do now?? Thanks so much for all your help so far :) The Dlink adapter is an AirPlus G

    You have connected your daughter's laptop, so you're halfway there.:)

    To make a start, is there a button on the laptop to enable wireless networking? Sometimes a slight knock will switch it off.

    Secondly, when you go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections ('Network and Sharing' on Vista) do you see a wireless network icon there? If so, is it enabled?

    If so, try clicking this icon (in XP) and click 'View Wireless Networks': Is your network in the list of available networks? If so, what happens when you try to connect?

    I'm not sure what you've tried so far or whether you have Vista, XP or something else. However, these steps are a good place to start.

OK, I see. No wonder it has been tricky compared with the laptop! I'll do what I can to help, though I am more 'helpful neighbour' than expert here. :)

First, I'd want to double check the adapter is installed and working. The Device Manager should help.

In the Control Panel, click the 'System' icon. On the System Properties box, click the Hardware tab. You should see a 'Device Manager' icon on the screen: click that if necessary to bring up a list of hardware devices (see screenshot here). Assuming there is a 'network adapters' icon on the right hand screen, click any '+' signs you might see to view which network adapters are installed on the laptop.

If you do see your wireless adapter there, are there any red crosses or yellow exclamation marks to be seen? Can you right click and select 'properties' ...if so, does Windows show any messages about the adapter?

If everything is OK, you will need to connect to your network using Dlink's own utility, which you should find in Start > Programs. I can't be more specific without the model number, but hope this moves things another step forward.

However, if you don't see the wireless adaptor, or there is a problem with this or anything else....please come back to Fixya...

    If you can note down the model number of the Dlink adapter, this should help with further troubleshooting...

  • eecom Dec 22, 2008

    Many thanks for your kind feedback! Sorry this is a long posting, but you'll see why...

    It sounds like there is no driver installed for the adapter. That's not usually a problem. I've a couple of concerns though, having taken a look at the Airplus G DWL-G630 at the DLink website. See what you think:

    1) The setup of the adapter and network will either be very straightforward - or quite complex. This is because Windows 2000 is not as network friendly as Windows XP. You have to use Dlink's own utility to set it up. The manual is quite large

    2) Wireless encryption: do you know if you have WEP security or WPA security on your router? (WEP security is an older technology, and very weak. WPA is strong and more modern.)

    On Win2000, the Airplus DWL-G630 can only work with WEP security.

    So you can certainly give it a go, and I'll lend a hand if I can, but I won't promise success. :) **

    If you do want to try installing the adapter, you need the version number of the adapter card. To find this, switch off the laptop, take the battery out (to be on the safe side) and gently pull out the wireless card. There should be a label on the base of it. At the bottom it will say H/W Ver :B1 (or A1, or C1) - you need this information to download the correct driver.

    See examples on this page - and in fact, this is where you download the drivers for the DWL-G630 (which I assume is your card).

    So that's the next step if you decide to go ahead....

    (** Unless of course, you can persuade Santa to bring you a Windows XP disk and maybe a new wireless card to go with it!...


    All the best

I am using the Dell Latitude D620, When i am connecting this machine on network I am getting 100 MBPS connectivity, but when i am connecting other machine to the same network port I am getting 1GBPS...

Hi Ajay,

The LAN (wired network) connectivity speed/data rate depends upon the networking hardware (Laptop Ethernet Cards, Switch, Router etc.).
To get 1Gbps connectivity you must have 1Gbps ethernet (LAN) card in the laptops. As Dell Latitude D620 has 1Gbps card, the problem could be with the switch or router, which may be having 100Mbps and 1Gbps ports, depending upon the equipment you are using and it is recommended that you check out the its full specification. If you connect laptop to 100Mbps port you can only get 100Mbps speed. To get full speed, it is required to have 1Gbps support at both ends.

Dont forget to rate the solution if it helps!!

Have you tried connecting your computer directly to your modem to see if it is your router creating the problems?
If you get a good stable connection might need to pick up a new router.

My employer gave me a Dell 6400 Latitude Laptop to use at home through a VPN connection. I have a plug in connection at home. How do I hook up my laptop at home?

Connect your ethernet cable from your Broadband modem into your laptop. Make sure you can browse webpages. Open the VPN software installed by your employer, and enter your login credentials assigned by your employer to authenicate. Once connected, you will have Network Access and Intranet Connections to your workplace. This will work from WiFi hotspots, hotels, Internet cafes, etc. If you do not yet have your VPN software installed, or have your credentials, speak to your employer as they may need to create and account and a certificate for your VPN connection.

I reloaded XP and drivers on my Dell D630 laptop. It's finding my router and shows a strong connection but I can't get online.


-to configure the router after the reinstall, you have to manually create a wireless network again.
-you need the security key of the router (like WEP, WPA2, etc)
-ensure that the wireless is found in the device manager as well, right click computer, click manage then click device manager and check on the network adapter if wireless is detected without any symbol

Dell Latitude and buffalo client manager problems

I have just had exactally the same problem,
Right, what you need to do is, go to "help & support" for the start menu, when that has loaded search device manager.
Then click on the first [yellow] question mark you see under "network adaptors". The it will come up as, a property box, then click re-install driver, during the process of re-installing a box will appear, like mine did as we both have the same computer/laptop,saying something like; "window's dose not support this" there are 2 options continue installation or stop, click continue & then go to client manager and see wether your wireless card been picked up, if that failed try clicking other question marks & re-installing then. It may be related.
