So I fixed it I also installed all of the ndiswrappers and all of the wireless stuff I could find so between that and changing the key to WEP I finally fixed it. Press the F2 key again to turn off Wi-Fi on the Dell laptop. Sometimes things get dropped from newer kernels and older kit won’t function anymore. I know from using Windows though that the firewall is always on even wired it stays on as it has questioned downloads at least in Windows 7. I hope this helps with your problem.

Hi thank you for your help this was a new install of Linux and I don’t remember turning the wireless off. I don’t even think you can do that with Linux and the FN key that controls the functions at the top sireless the keyboard.
So anything not too complicated as I still don’t understand Linux near as much as I do Windows.
If you have the WindowsXP. Home Help Search Login Register.
If there’s a harder way to do something I’ll cpnnection find it. Sometimes things get dropped from newer kernels and older kit won’t function anymore.
Maybe you could try a different kernel,possibly an older one. Waldo You are absolutely right.
Dell Latitude D600 Intel PRO/Wireless Network Connection Driver A15
Hi I know my wireless card works completely in sending and receiving to my router as I have had it set up with Windows XP and it works fine. Must be something wrong with how the software is written as I can see networks so I know it wasn’t off. I wonder if you are entering the proper encryption key for your router?
I do have an ethernet port and I am able to directly plug into my router so using my laptop in my basement office is not a problem but if I want to move the laptop anywhere else it then becomes a big problem.
I tried adjusting the firewall a while ago and still no luck I can see my router and I was able to put in my wep key but it still will not connect. I hadn’t thought about the firewall but I can check it out and see if I can connect.
To continue using , please upgrade your browser.
Hi I thought I would update this. So please make your explanations as uncomplicated as possible. Any way to fix the driver?
Thank you for your help! So I fixed it I also installed all of the ndiswrappers and all of the wireless stuff I could find so between that and changing the key to WEP I finally fixed it.
This by the way was a test to see how Linux would work with this laptop using another hard drive I have for it. I can’t say as I am still new to it although I have looked at many different flavors and distributions out there. Press the F2 key again to turn conenction Wi-Fi on the Dell laptop.

Taking a quick look on the net found these references. January 23, I unfortunately can’t connect to any of them even if I had the key. So I know for sure that it works with Windows XP and would if the driver was right for this in Linux.
