Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
Hi! In addition, two of my colleagues have same problem with dell latitude. They try to use it in some hotels with wired connection first boot the local area connection in the network connection doesn't appear when they try to shutdown the laptop after few minutes turned it on finally the local area connection came up. The things is every time that they use it in different location still the problem exist. Windows XP SP2, updated all the patches and drivers from the Dell website. How can it be fix? Thanks.
I have a Dell Inspiron and when it operates on batteries it automatically (by default) shuts down the wired network adapter when not in use. The solution may be to insure the network cable is plugged in before starting the laptop or to learn where in the power management utilities to turn on the wired network adapter -- I believe it can be done permanently at the cost of reducing battery operating time overall. It can probably also be done on a when needed basis. My Dell currently does not have windows on it and the operation on my machine may not be the same as on a Latitude. When this happened I used to get little balloon notices from a systool bar icon, however I also modified the default configuration to show my network devices in the systool bar when connected as well as when disconnected.
