Make sure that your tcp/ip networking is set to 'Obtain IP address automatically'.
Power modem first , then laptop. Make sure that you are using the right cable for connection between modem and comp.

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

Hi,

Your ethernet card is not working and it seems to be damaged so if your laptop in under warranty so replace it free from the service center. Otherwise they will take charges for this replacement.

My dell 8600 inspiron will not pick up the internet from my wireless network or connected directly to the cable modem


It can only be 1 of 4 problems then. 1.)Ethernet card is not working. 2.)Drivers need to be updated. 3.)Network settings are not being put in correctly. 4.)Modem is not getting internet.

Solutions:
1.)Buy a new card and see if it works (do not throw away old one b/c if new one does not work either then you can return it)
2.)Go to the website for your modem (usually dell's website keeps all the drivers for standardly used cards) using someone else's computer or internet and update them
3.)Delete all networks in your network panel on computer then try to redo your settings all brand new.
4.)Make sure all lights are lit up on your modem and call your internet carrier.

Internal modem is not working


Are you sure it's a modem port and not a ethernet port. They look very similar and people confuse them easily. The ethernet port is slightly larger though. So we can verify we're talking about the correct thing, are you using dialup to connect to the internet? or are you connecting to a broadband router or dsl modem?
in either case you should be able to get drivers on dell's website and copy them over to your laptop.

Missingg ethernet card driver for Inspiron 8600. Information on system components is Intergrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem. I have no driver file on disks


Hi,

Go to the dell site and check the support options for your computer. There should be a driver download section, and in there you shoud find the correct network driver. In theory, it's as simple as that to sort integrated component driver issues.

Can't connect to internet after reinstalling window-inspiron 8600


Use a computer that is connected to the Internet, then download and copy the drivers on to a CD or USB menory stick and install them on your computer.

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model laptop are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system.
