Can't recognize the wireless router

How can I tell if my Dell D600 is wireless ready? I have loaded the drivers and set-up the router. The "find wireless networks" option does not show up under Network connections.

    I know there is no wireless icon in the tray. I will have to check the hardware tab tonight. Can you tell anything about the missing icon?

Here's a few things you can try:

1. You should see the wireless icon in the system tray, bottom right of screen (tiny computer with rays to the right of it)

2. Try the correct wireless function key: hold down Fn key and press the F key with wireless mast picture on it. (possible F4 or F8). This will turn on and off the wireless card.

3. Check if wireless card is installed in Device manager as follows:

click on Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, select System, then Hardware Tab. Click on Device Manager.

Expand "Network Adapters". You should see a wireless card listed. If not, you've installed the wrong wireless driver...

Uninstall the one you installed and look for the correct one on Dell site.

Please what is Wifi and where can i find the button to turn it on or off.


WiFi is a wireless connection, if you have a wireless router and it is connected to the Internet, then you can connect to the Internet using the wireless card in your D600.
If you don't have a wireless router, then you can connect to the Internet at a free WiFi hot spot at locations such McDonalds, Starbucks and the airport.
This model D600 may not have a wireless card installed.
If it has it will be an Intel {ro wireless card. Check the Device Manager - Network Adapters, if you do not see a wireless adapter then you do not have a wireless card installed.
If you have a wireless card and the wireless driver is installed the you are ready for wireless connection. There is no button to turn on the wireless card, it will be ready to use.
If you require information on setting up your own wireless network, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a Dell Lattitude D600 that is not recognizing the ethernet cable plugged into it. I went to "Network Connections" and noticed that there is only a wireless connection and not a LAN. In the deviced...


Yes, LAN is different from the Wireless network.

Chances are, the driver for the ethernet card is not yet loaded or somehow got corrupted.

What you can do is to get the install disc or acquire the correct ethernet driver from Dell's support website. Install it into your PC and then let us know if you need further assistance.

Need WPA2 wifi connection to my Linksys with Dell D600


The WPA settings on your wireless card must be the same as the setting you configured on your wireless router. This allows your wireless card to communicate with the wireless router.

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.

Dell D600 - Linksys wireless router/adapter


Seems there is a problem with the Linksys since there is not any lights coming on. Did you plug it into a switched outlet in the wall? Does it work if you plug the Linksys into an outlet in another room?
If you can get it to light up, the way you will access it is through your web browser. Type in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and a login in screen should pop up.

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
