Dell D600 - Linksys wireless router/adapter

I recently had a 2.4 GHz 802.11g Linksys wireless router installed along with a wireless adapter. I installed the driver software and adapter onto my Dell D600 laptop.

However, its not working. the laptop Device Manager does not seem to recognize the adapter and there is no power light coming on the adapter.

Dell is no help, says it is a Linksys problem. Linksys says its Dell's fault

Help. thanks

Seems there is a problem with the Linksys since there is not any lights coming on. Did you plug it into a switched outlet in the wall? Does it work if you plug the Linksys into an outlet in another room?
If you can get it to light up, the way you will access it is through your web browser. Type in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser and a login in screen should pop up.

Please what is Wifi and where can i find the button to turn it on or off.


WiFi is a wireless connection, if you have a wireless router and it is connected to the Internet, then you can connect to the Internet using the wireless card in your D600.
If you don't have a wireless router, then you can connect to the Internet at a free WiFi hot spot at locations such McDonalds, Starbucks and the airport.
This model D600 may not have a wireless card installed.
If it has it will be an Intel {ro wireless card. Check the Device Manager - Network Adapters, if you do not see a wireless adapter then you do not have a wireless card installed.
If you have a wireless card and the wireless driver is installed the you are ready for wireless connection. There is no button to turn on the wireless card, it will be ready to use.
If you require information on setting up your own wireless network, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I formated my Dell latitude D600 and installed windows vista. As a result, the wireless lan stopped working. I have tried running different drivers to re-instal the wireless yet it has refused to...


Dell does not provide Vista drivers for the D600 because it is too old.
(See: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&catid=-1&impid=-1)

I see two options:
Purchase an add-on Vista-compatible wireless adapter (USB or PCMICIA).
Go back to XP. It will run better than Visa on the D600.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Need WPA2 wifi connection to my Linksys with Dell D600


The WPA settings on your wireless card must be the same as the setting you configured on your wireless router. This allows your wireless card to communicate with the wireless router.

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.

Bad Wireless Connection


This is usually caused by a driver glitch. From the device manager, uninstall the drivers for the wireless, then reboot. The machine will find and reinstall the drivers. If the problem persist, the take the card out, clean the connections, and reinstall it. It's located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. If it still won't work, then you need to replace the wireless card.

Wireless connection


Hi Kazmerr

Re: Dell Latitude d600

Assuming you already turned your wireless, your distance should be in range fom your router. Turn off and on the switch  or you can press Fn+F2 to start your wireless connection.If thats a no go check your wireless client  and make sure no other wireless client is installed ie. your ISP wireless connection manager.

Other work around for this is : make sure you have enabled or started your wireless client for windows by ff the steps below : 

Win XP Sp2: start > control panel  classic view> administrative tools > services > then look for Wireless Zero Configuration and right click it and choose start or restart . After doing this you may check or view your available wireless network again.IF no go >

For winXP or VIsta ONLY
Go to start > control panel   { classic view } > system > device manager > Look for network adapter {+} sign > look for 802.11g wireless / or anything that says 'wireless' and make sure that theres no yellow question or excamation mark on it and IF none right click it and choose remove/uninstall> then restart PC > and try to view avaialable wireless again by ff the steps above.

{ tthis will refresh your wireless network hardware and software}

Note: for yellow exclamation marks or questions marks on your wireless adapter you MUST reinstall your DEll Wireless adapter. using you DELL System Recovery Disk.

In most instance it has somthing to do with your wireless switch on your laptop. With all possible steps porvided above doesnt woprk pls notify me. Thanks and good luck.
