Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook

1 Answer

USB Port Malfunction

I own a new/used Dell Latitude C610. It runs off of Windows 2000 Pro. My wireless card is a USB connection. I can get onto the internet just fine, but after about 2 minutes or so I get an error that says I have disconnect the device. The card is still plugged in with both of its green lights on, but the laptop is still saying that I have unplugged the card. Is there a power safety feature that I need to turn off, or is there a short in the USB port?

There is no power option in XP to shut off a USB port to preserve power so dont worry about that. I would try to use a different USB device such as a USB Flash Drive or printer etc. to test. If the flash drive for instance does not say it is disconnected after 2 minutes, then you know that the problem is with the wireless card. If it does the same thing as the wireless card, then you know that its not the card. I would say it would most likely be a motherboard at that point which becomes a rather expensive problem. Hopefully this helps!

Not without changing the motherboard. There is a bit more to it than just the USB connections. Take a look at this: http://www.everythingusb.com/superspeed-usb.html

Does the dell latitude PP01L have wireless internet


It probably has an old PCMCIA card for wireless but they don't work well with modern routers.

I would recommend getting one like the one in the link below. It's super small, very fast, extremely cheap $10, Installs right in a usb port, and if your operating system is windows XP or later it should even auto install the drivers for you.

What wireless card do I need for the C610, I assume it won't take an external adapter. Jim


The c610 I think has 1 or 2 PCMCIA Slots for a wirless card it also should have a USB port both these you can go wireless with.
Here is two link to wirless adapters that should work for your laptop.

USB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833122212

PCMCIA: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124110

Whot can i just plug into a u.s.b. port to inprove my reception on my laptop in spain ?


Linksys, Belkin and Netgear have several USB wireless adapters, and there are literally thousands on ebay. I personally suggest a PCMCIA card, I use a Netgear WPN511 in my Dell C840, which improves my signal up to 300 yards, but there are high-gain (Danets-Yagi) types that are better for more remote areas (up to a mile)
