Re: Ethernet card problem

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.

Sounds as though theres no power getting to the card if theres no light on it - the dell 6XX series has a weakness in the PCMCIA connector too - it can easily flex and seperate from the socket on the motherboard over time and especially in transit. I wouldnt suggest trying to fix it yourself but dell will send someone out to fix it if its under warranty or for a small fee if not. hope this helps

Internet card

You can call the provider where you got the card and they can tell you where to go on the net to download the program that connects it. Its free if you can find out what the card reads or what kind it is.

Ethernet port doesn't recognize internet

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 ,
