Re: dell latitude d800 laptop
The problem may be the modem has to assign an IP address to your laptop, what you may have to do is plug the laptop into the modem and see if the laptop recognizes the modem with no errors in device manager,
Next turn off the laptop and modem, reboot the laptop then modem for the modem to assign an IP address.

Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.
Maybe the laptop is configured by default to look for a wireless signal through its wifi drivers, or a different previously installed modem. Go to your Computer/Control Panel/Network Sharing Center and set up a new connection there so your computer knows what to do.
Go to dell support at www.dell.com/support find drivers and downloads, click on it. it'll ask you to choose your system. if you have the service tag number on the bottom of your laptop use that method or just pick by modle. you'll see where it says type of driver ... just leave it as all, same with importance, and so on. you should now be at a page that lists them all by type. I'm pretty sure that it's the Conextant V9 . Dell usually keeps all models of laptops with great hardware and my last 4 dells all had conextant.
