Sounds like the wireless card is faulty. Try downloading latest drivers for the wireless card if that does not help then I suggest swapping out the wireless card.

8400 dell hold power switch to get started


If it still acts up, compare wiring of the large motherboard Molex connector to the original. Dell used a variant that does not interchange. The enable wire is in a different location from standard ATX location.

If the processor is an AMD, remove cbattery and clear BIOS, and then try again.

How do you turn on wifi for dell latitude d610


There is not wireless switch on this model. To turn on your wireless you will need to hold down FN + F2. If this does not turn on your wireless its most probably disabled in the Bios. To enable it, press the F2 key at the Dell Logo on startup, move down to wireless, press enter and move to wireless control, make sure its set to Fn+F2/App, then move down to wireless devices and make sure it set to on. Press Esc, and save changes and exit.

Identifying network, unsecured network


Are you using the Dell utility to connect to networks ? Try setting the network you want to connect to as your "Preferred" network in your wireless utility on your laptop. Also, try moving the network to the top of the list. Doing this might set it as your "Preferred" network.

Hi Brucemph,

I just physically fixed a dell with the same problem. Dell installs a wireless configuration software that will auto configure the wireless adapter in the event there is a "Conflict". It basically disables the default card. Look at the programs you have installed and find the Dell Wireless program. Open it and select the default wireless card that is installed on the laptop. Once that is selected, go to your network connection, right click on the network adapter choose properties, select internet protocol, right mouse click, properties and make sure the box is checked that say's obtain ip address automatically.

Let me know how you do.

WIRELESS PROBLEMS


You can verify the wireless card is connected properly by following the instructions in the service manual http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1500/ but I don't believe you can verify the connection of the wireless switch without completely disassembling the system. If it is under warranty do not attempt this at all, call Dell.

If it connects when the wireless light is lit then something is obviously loose.

Wireless working very slow


Check that your network is secured with a key, unsecured networks are easily hacked and can get very slow.

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.

Wireless Connection


Hi Joe, Are you connecting to an Access Point on your home network? Are you connecting to a wireless connection in a cafe or something? Either way, you should be able to connect. All you need to do is tap the small symbol on the bottom right of the main screen (looks like a little staircase) and let it do it's thing. It will bring up another screen (WLan Utility). When it's connected, the arrows to the left of the clock will stop moving. If you want, you can click on the "Setting"button where you can perform more diagnostic functions. You might need to type in a network key, but otherwise, you should be working.
