Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Latitude D600 Network problem

The system has all the correct drivers and all of the hardware is listed under the device manager with no issues. Neither the wireless network adapter or the NIC will recognize a connection to the internet. The wireless card will recognize all available networks but will not connect to mine even after putting in the key. I need help trying to figure this out.

How do i turn the wireless radio on, is there a physical switch on the machine or keyboard?

The D600 has no hardware switch. Does the wireless device show up in your hardware device list? (Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware tab/Device Manager button/Network adapters). Mine shows up there as a Dell Wireless 1450 Dual band mini-PCI card. There are others that it could be. If it appears, double click on it and check it's device status. If no wireless appears there, then look for a possible unknown device under 'other'. If it is under 'other' then you need a driver.
Also, click Start/Control Panel/Network connections. You should see the wireless listed there. It could be disabled. Right click on it for options.
A lot more could be said, but try that for now.

I cannot connect to the internet with the Dell Latitude C400. we have Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP2. the CPU is P3 1200MHz and 512 RAMd

Sounds like you have a nice computer with a not-so nice problem.

I assume you have high speed internet, and not a dial-up connection.

FIRST thing to do is look at your device manager and SEE if your computer can recognize the network interface connection device (NIC) card. Click start, right click my computer and goto properties, colick hardware, device manager, network devices. you SHOULD see a listing of hardware under Network devices. IF YOU DO NOT SEE network devices, then look for a YELLOW ? mark. If you see one, it will be under "Other devices" and will say something like PCI network controller. If that is the case, you need to get the driver for the device and install it. You can locate the driver at the dell website, store it on a USB flash drive, and insert that drive into your notebook to install. I do not believe the p3's had built in wireless. If you have the driver installed, check your TCPIP settings and make sure they are correct for your internet provider (you can call them and they will walk you thru it). If all that should still fail, its not a great loss. The pentium 3 was a good machine in its day, but, having loaded windows XP sp2 (or 3) will bog it down to next to nothing. It will frastrate you into a tizzy waiting for it to do anything. You'd be happier dropping about 250 bucks on a used Del d600 in a computer shop someplace. They come with wireless, they are pentium 4, and have much better graphics support. Plus they can hold and use more ram. That p3 would be good if you had windows 2000 in it, and even then, I would only use it for school or office work. Do not expect to play any games on it.

I need to connect to the internet

can you see if the network card has the correct drivers?
Click Start; Right Click on "My Computer" Select Manage

A new application will launch - Computer Management
From this application, click on "Device Manager"
There may be some devices with ? listed - make sure that there is at least a device under network adapter. If there isn't, then the driver is not set for the network adapter - you'll need to take the original pc system disk to get the driver; or download it from dell.

Can't recognize the wireless router

Here's a few things you can try:

1. You should see the wireless icon in the system tray, bottom right of screen (tiny computer with rays to the right of it)

2. Try the correct wireless function key: hold down Fn key and press the F key with wireless mast picture on it. (possible F4 or F8). This will turn on and off the wireless card.

3. Check if wireless card is installed in Device manager as follows:

click on Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, select System, then Hardware Tab. Click on Device Manager.

Expand "Network Adapters". You should see a wireless card listed. If not, you've installed the wrong wireless driver...

Uninstall the one you installed and look for the correct one on Dell site.

The flickering may not be caused by a corrupt driver, it could be the impending failure of the fluorescent back light of the display or its high voltage supply.

Trying driver replacement though is the first thing to try.
If the original driver is corrupt, you can try the following;

- Right-click on My Computer
- Left-click on Properties
- Click on Hardware tab
- Click on Device Manager
- Locate and open Display Adaptors
- Locate the video listing for your
- Highlight and delete this
- Reboot the computer

If Windows does what it should (no guarantee on this!), it will 'find' a 'new device' and install the driver for it.
