Question about Ashton Digital Passport 2068 Notebook

1 Answer

Passport 2068 only accepts WiFi card in startup.

The 2068 will not recognize/activate WiFi (Netgear) card if inserted after unit is running and I need to go online for something. Must "restart" with card inserted before it is recognized. Any suggestions?

    Do the drivers ever load for the netgear wifi card even after the restart? Check in the device manager.

When your card is inserted and after few minutes to activate Sw, right click on wireless card icon and try repair.
It's normally working for me 3 out of 5.
Sometime I have to retry.

You need to set up your router to your notebook. you should have a wifi router and a basic internet router, and the basic one controls your land line internet and that runs through a cable. if you still have the disk that came with your land line router install it on your notebook and it will recognize it.

Need WiFi instead of Bluetooth


You have two choices for a wireless connection, a PCMCIA card or a USB device.
My choice would be a PCMCIA card, because it frees up a USB port.
There are quite a few PCMCIA card to choose from, I favour Netgear and D-Link.
Their instructions make them easy to install and setup.
Let me know if you have problems.

Cpu upgrade


Upgrading the CPU in a notebook is a bad idea.

Even if you get a compatible CPU, a faster processor means more heat, and notebooks are not design to handle it. You would risk major damage.

If you want to make it faster, try increasing the memory.


Good luck!

WIFI


Sounds like one of these problems.

1) The wireless hardware is turned off in the BIOS. Reboot and check to see if there is an entry in the BIOS for the embedded wireless card and if so make sure it is set to ON.

2) The hardware is not recognised because the drivers are not properly installed. Check in DEVICE MANAGER to see if the wireless appears at all, and if it is in an error state. If so, re-install latest drivers from the manufacturer's web site.

3) Other software necessary may be missing. Some machines have wireless manager clients that they need to access the card. Check on the manufacturers' web site for these utilities, and if found, install them and reboot watching for new (different) problems to arise.

4) You could have buggered wireless hardware, but this seems pretty unlikely. Some wireless cards are add-ins and can be removed from the laptop motherboard by accessing them through a door on the bottom of the unit. If that is the case with your machine, power down the unit and remove the wireless card. Check in the hardware manager to make sure no device errors for the card remain, and if they do, remove the hardware by right-clicking on the error device icon and clicking on REMOVE HARDWARE. Then, power down and re-insert the wireless card and reboot and try a clean install.

Good luck...

you should only need to enter the WEP key and get youre friend to remove your mac address. You may also need to refresh the ip address of your wireless card, so go to control panel>network connections>right click to properties>TCP/IP line>properties and ensure 'obtain ip address automatically' is ticked, then reastart your pc. Or you can also click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns, so as to renew your dns and ip address.
