Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
I'm having problems connecting to the internet via ethernet cord. (Prior to our move to Singapore, I had always just used wireless connection.) When I attach the ethernet cord, no lights appear on my modem or my laptop to show connection. The other option for connection is via USB cable but my laptop does not detect the cable modem. Service technician from my local internet service provider believes that my LAN card is faulty. DELL technical assistance suggests replacing the motherboard. I assume replacing the motherboard is quite expensive in terms of labor and parts, so I am thinking that buying a router to go wireless is the best solution. Any other thoughts on how to resolve the problem?
Hi. If Dell is correct, then yes, it would be expensive. Your other alternative is to buy a PCMCIA Ethernet Card. They range from about $20 to $40. Or, you could go with what you suggested and do wireless via a wireless router.
