Having problems with your Dell Latitude D810 Notebook ?

WIFi catcher I just purchased a Dell Latitude D810. I believe I can drive with the laptop in my car and look at an indicator light that tells me when I'm near a WiFi "station". Is this correct? What light would I be looking at? Is it the little green WiFi LED located at the hinge? Can I do this with the laptop turned off? Do I need to enable drivers? If so where are the drivers located?


Answers :

You can drive around with your laptop,You cannot look at the indicator and know when your near a "station" .You can however look at the wireless status page and see any available "stations". The led simply says that your wireless is turned on.You cannot do anything with the laptop turned off.You only need drivers if you don't have wireless drivers already loaded.

Most laptops (including your D810) have a green Wifi light to indicate when the wireless adapter/radio is operational, not when it's actually in range of something. Your laptop must be turned on for your wifi card to be functional. The "driving around" function you're talking about normally requires software that runs on the laptop. The software monitors your wireless adapter to determine when a suitable signal or network is in range. Your wireles adapter by itself isn't smart enough to make determinations as to whether or not a wireless access point is close enough for proper association, coordinate security settings, and decide if it's able to connect successfully without the aid of software. So, if you're looking to drive around and connect to wireless hotspots, you should leave the laptop on in the car, and find yourself some war-driving software that gives you real-time wireless statistics and more options for finding and connecting to wireless networks.
