Question about Dell (4G889) for Inspiron 2500, Inspiron 4000, Inspiron 8000, Inspiron 8100 Modem

1 Answer

PCI network card

The pci network card doesn't appear to work, no flashing lights. I'm unable to use with a virgin broadband router. I've tried to locate a driver in case that fixes the problem but can't find one anywhere. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 2500 running W2K. I downloaded and paid for Driver Genius pro but that didn;t help either. I'm wondering if the card is not working any longer but not sure how to tell.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

Jason

Try this one

I found someone else that was having the same problem locating this and it worked for them. It was a very slow link when I tried it, but be patient.

Here is a link to the Dell support website for the D610. You can download all of the drivers from there. I would suggest that you also download and install the BIOS flash to make sure the computer is up to date that way.

Good luck and please let me know how this works out for you.

Try this link for the Conexant chipset modem driver from Dell. If it expires then you have to navigate through from http://supportapj.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=au&l=en&s=gen&~ck=bt You may also check whether you have the latest BIOS update (A16, 5 Jul 2005) too.

Phillips screwdriver
Suggest Edits
  1. Prepare the Network
  • Purchase and setup a wireless broadband router by interfacing it with your wired computer. Choose a router that is compatible with your broadband modem and that supports the wireless network type you desire.
  • Enable WPA or WPA-2 security, and change your router's default password. Give your SSID or wireless network a memorable name.
  • Connect your modem to the WAN (wide area network) port on your router.

  1. Install an Internal Card
  • Purchase a wireless network card that is compatible with the router you purchased and with your computer. For example, if you bought a 802.11 b/g router, do not purchase an 802.11 n adapter.
  • Shut down your computer. Remove all cables and peripheral devices.
  • Remove the left side panel while facing the front of the case. You may need to remove screws or to manipulate latches and notches. Consult your case or computer manufacturer's documentation if you are unsure of how to remove the panel.
  • Clip the metal part of the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and ******** the bracelet.
  • Locate an available PCI or PCI-Express slot. Unscrew the screw that secures the slot cover that corresponds with the slot, then remove the slot cover.
  • Line up the wireless adapter's pins with the slot. Insert the card until it clicks into place. Do not force the card into the slot, or you may damage the card's connectors. If you feel resistance, remove the card, line up the card with the slot again, and reinsert.
  • Secure the card with the slot cover screw. Reattach the side panel, and replace any screws you removed earlier.
  • Reinsert all cables, and plug in all peripherals. Boot the computer.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions.
  1. Install an External Card
  • Boot up your computer.
  • Insert your external wireless adapter into the appropriate slot. For example, if you purchased a USB slot, insert it into a USB port.
  • Allow Windows the opportunity to detect the card. It should automatically install the drivers for the card. If you have updated drivers, insert the disk and install according to on-screen instructions
  • Complete Setup
  • Double-click the network icon in the task bar.
  • Highlight your wireless network. Windows will display the name you entered when setting up your router
  • Click the "Connect" button.
  • Enter and verify the security key you created when setting up the router. Click on "Connect."
If you have further query then try to let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

I AM ON TOTAL BROADBAND HOW DO I CONNECT WIRELESS TO MY COMPUTOR


With a broadband connection you will need a wireless router (you will connect your broadband modem to the router) a wireless adaptor for every computer you want to be wireless. If you have a desktop you can either add a pci wireless card (you will need to open your pc and insert the card in a pci slot) or you can use a usb wireless adaptor.

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps
