Dell built laptop XPsp3
Connects to office LAN no problems
Try to connect at home with a tested broadband connection and nothing.
Have rebooted modem, rebooted machine. Checked IP settings on both a working home PC and the laptop - both set to auto DHCP and DNS.
Have tried right clicking the disconnected LAN icon and doing a repair connection. Fails to renew IP address.
IPCONFIG indicates a IP address of 169.n.n.n So its just not connecting to the internet to recieve a IP addy. If i replug the cable into the working home PC - bing - the connection connects straight away.

The setup disc for the router only needs to be run once when setting up the router to work with your internet provider and modem/router. You can try putting the disc in your desktop computer and reconfiguring the router.
Try to uninstall and reinstall your Local Area Network driver by going to the device manager from the control panel. expand the network adapter and right-click your LAN then select uninstall. Restart your computer and windows will automatically reinstall your LAN driver.
Since the Dell connects somewhere else, you know its wireless stuff is working. You may have signal issues at home, either low strength or interference. Try repositioning the router. Change its channel through the router setup page to see if that helps. Also be sure you have your security settings right in the laptop. This should get you going.
It's a mobil connection. It enables you to stay connected to the internet if you are on the way with your laptop.

It's quite cool and fast as described, I used the Vodafone Mobile connect HSDPA and I can confirm the good performance.
One serious issue are the costs, as you pay for the downloaded MB once you exceed your free data limit, Not sure if you want to use it privately, then you need to monitor the amount of downloaded data closely otherwise you will be poor very soon :-). Check at the Vodafone Home page the costs.
The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.
i have the same router. I recommend that you download a new driver of your lan card for your desktop pc, also if you have P2P and bittorrent applications, try to disable them first and see the difference, those programs slow down the your internet, because they hog your bandwidth and connects to multiple users.
you have to create a new dsl conenction on the d600 laptop.
you can go to internet explorer-----tools-----internet options----connections------add a new connection and create a new connection for your broadband.
