Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

2 Answers

Ethernet port doesn't recognize internet

I have had a latitude D600 for about 4 years now. It has a Broadcom 570x integrated ethernet controller and is running Windows XP Pro SP2. The problem that I have had in the past 6 months is that the wired ethernet does not work effectively. It does not recognize that the connection is good when plugged in. Occasionally the Local Area Connection will disappear altogether from the Network Connections folder. I have tried:
1. Ensuring that the power is plugged in and the power down of the ethernet port is disabled when connecting to the ethernet.
2. Uninstalling then reinstalling the drivers for the ethernet controller. This initially worked but the same problem would arise.

The wireless works fine and I have been able to operate with just this.

I am unsure as to whether this is a hardware or a software problem.

I'd appreciate some assistance with this.

Ok i have herd of service pack 2 causing these problems, go to dell website , see if there are any service pack 2 fixes to download for your model laptop , or any updated drivers for your laptop , it does almost sound like a Harware problem , but i dont think thats the case , reinstaling xp may be the solution , start from scratch , and take note of what you install , as it maybe be some other software / programs causing this, it's also possible it is spyware or a virus causing this , spware doctor is a good program to use , you can download it for free and do a check , but u will need to buy it to clean the infections, unless u know how to pirate it, which i dont think im allowed to say ,

Emachine doesn't recognize the ethernet cord when plugged in

Sounds like the integrated ethernet port has gone bad. You can install a new ethernet card in one of the PCI expantion slots. Then plug the ethernet into the new card, this should take care of the problem. You can not repair a bad integrated ethernet port.

since the network card is built onto the motherboard reinstalling the driver would be the best first option.

HERE is the link to the driver.

I would try that first.

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.

More than likely this is the one that you need. It is for a Broadcom NIC. If that one doesn't work, they have this one for a Gigabit NIC listed here. I would start withe the integrated NIC divers. Both files have download instructions on the page if you need it.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

What error code was given when you tried to install the Broadcom 570x. What operating system? (WinXp, Win2000, Vista)? I would go to Dell's website and download the drivers shown there for the Latitude D600.
