    All you can do is disable the onboard NIC and use a PCMCIA NIC instead. Unless you want to have the motherboard replaced, which is not cost effective.

Most laptop lan ports are onboard so replacement would mean replacement of the entire Motherboard. A very costly option. I suggest buying a USB to NIC adapter from your local PC store and just use that for LAN connections.
(side note: get a good brand, cheap USB to NIC/LAN converters sometimes drop connections randomly so spend a few extra $$$ for a good one)

Is there a quick fix to replacing the processor fan on a Dell Inspron 1000


Not a quick fix, but you can buy a cooling base unit for it which plugs into one of your usb ports which supplies power for the built in fan.

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.

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

My computer ideapad lenova,i am not able to connect to internet,one IT specialist told me that my slot for inserting cable is bad what to do i am now in china Ghanzhou city


Do you mean the slot?
Is it the cable that goes into the LAN port?
If so you can use a LAN PCMCIA card and connect the LAN cable into this card.
OR
You can connect to the Internet using a USB 3G adapter which uses the cell phone network with a cell phone provider.

Dell Inspiron 1501 10/100 network port not working. I have installed driver and have known good cable in port. Worked until 2 weeks ago. Lights don't blink, onboard LAN turned on in BIOS.


Sounds like a failed NIC.

Things to try:
  1. Flash the BIOS to current version if not already done.
  2. Reset BIOS Defaults
  3. If NIC still doesn't work, try a system restore to a time when it worked.
  4. If that fails, most likely a hardware failure.

Power management related query


Some system have a BIOS settings like these. There are 2 options affecting the NIC. LAN/WLAN switching and LAN power save. Are both LAN power save and LAN/WLAN switching enabled?

On my laptop, it does the same thing as your computer when its on battery (HP laptop) except when there is an ethernet cable plugged in or loopback. I made a little loopback plug to keep the port active even when it is unplugged.

Dell 8100 ethernet will not connect off the port replicator


Let me give it a try ...

There are a few possibilities but i'll cover 2 of them :
1. There is a program that comes with your DELL that will save battery life by turning off your Network Card (LAN) I forgot what is the program name. But usually when you plug the power cable out, there will be notification at bottom right corner of your screen that told you so.

2. I don't know if your port replicator connected to power adapter (is port replicator = docking ?). The fact that your LAN connected when it's on port replicator make my first conclusion more acceptable. Since port replicator got it's own power adapter, it will just turn the LAN on.

Now if you want to check if thats the cause, just plug your notebook to it's power adapter/charger and plug your LAN Cable in. If it works than the problem is the nasty program from DELL.

If you want to disable the program just go to Startup Tab at msconfig and disable (clear the check mark) for that nasty program

Hope it helps

My laptop cannot connect to my local network (LAN)


Assuming you initially set up the router using the wired lan adapter and lead, enabled DHCP in the settings. First stand right next to your router; Dells wireless is a little tempremental, go to control panel and in there should be Dell wireless monitor, open this up refresh it and see if it finds any wireless networks, if so try to connect. Dissable your wired network lan adapter. Go to the properties of your wireless card and on the TCP/IP line click properties again and ensure that obtain an ip address automatically is selected, press ok and restart the pc.
