Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Have no way to connect wirelessly

Before I reinstalled windows xp on my Dell, I could connect wirelessly through the router near my home computer. I reinstalled Windows XP home edition (the previous version was professional), and now I can't find any way to get to the wireless program it used to have. HELP!

Thanks

Sounds like you need some drivers installed, especially if you just installed XP clean.

Visit support.dell.com, click on Drivers and Downloads, click on the service tag option and enter your service tag located on the bottom.

This will take you to a list of drivers for your specific model. Make sure the OS chosen is Windows XP and in the list you should find some wireless drivers. There may be several different wireless drivers listed. And one of those will be specific to your needs.

You might need to identify which wireless card you have first. Which will requrie gaining access to it to get some part numbers or model numbers from it. There should be an access panel on the bottom that you can open to gain access to the mini-pci wireless card. That way you can see which one you have and download the correct software for it.

My friend,

In that computer go to the wireless connection in the control panel.

And try to connect through the Windows utility.

Don't forget to start the wireless zero configuration from services.msc

To get in to services.msc in xp
Click on run and type services.msc
Then search for the wireless zero configuration .
Start the service.
Make sure if there is any other utility is there on the computer then disable that.

Verify that you have the correct type of authentication in wireless- if your router is set to WPA2, then you would have to go under the connection properties > security tab to change it to match that setup. If that does not work, then the issue may be that the wireless card is defective and starting to fail.

Dell Dimension 4700 - Driver Reset


1st you need to download or install all the drivers for your Dell computer. Try to use the drivers/utilities disks first. Once you can get online, go to Dell.com and look up your model 4700 and download all the missing drivers. Your Linksys Router is not a modem. The Linksys has the modem connected to it for wireless connections.

Make sure you have fresh ip address...
go to command screen: ipconfig /renew

If this doenst work you can static the IP of the Wireless NIC. Make sure the IP you use is on the subnet of the router.

Cannot get internet connection


You probably have to buy a wireless card and and install it in your computer...there wasn't much in the way of home wireless back in 2002.
Go to your device manager and look at the network adapters and see if you have a wireless adapter installed on your system. If not, you will have to put a wireless pci card in and install it and then you will be able to configure your computer to connect to your router with a wireless connection.

Does it say limited connection to network? You're connecting it through a wireless router right? Do you see your wireless router when you search for networks?
I had similar problem with my previous Dell laptop. Wireless use to work untill one day it just stopped, found the networks, but kept giving me limited connection whenever i tried to connect. I found out the problem is linked with the driver. Dell laptop i had was also on XP OS.
Maybe try reinstalling the drivers. After I formatted my computer and reinstalled drivers, it started working again.
Hope this helps.

Trying to set up a network printer with DELL TRUEMIBILE 2350...please help


using windows xp on all the computers, when you connect to the printer windows should automatically install drivers.

1. Goto My Computer, Click My Network Places (Explorer Bar).
2. Click View Workgroup Computers (Explorer Bar)
3. Find the computer that has the printer physically connected to it, open it
4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.
