Having problems with your Dell Precision M90 Notebook ?

I am a Support Tech for the Army and really can't find a solution to this problem. When I plug in my Cat5 cable it still says network unplugged only on my M90 computers, all other Dells I have connect find but this one, its happened on two of my M90's already. Has anyone ever seen this? My network is down right now but it should at least still connect to the switch right?


Answers :

Perhaps the "other" Dell's network cards have auto-sense, and you're using a crossover cable... when you shove it into the M90, you get nothing because the wiring of the Patch Cable is not right.

Ethernet driver I just switched my laptop from Vister to XP Pro and I can't find a driver for the Ethernet card, in network connections the 1394 network adapter is there and it says its enabled but when I check it out it has no drivers and can't find a IP address. I'm pretty sure this has a Realtek in it but I couldn't find the right driver , I tried a generic one with no luck. I figured I'd try and get it up and running with my Road Runner Turbo before i worried about the Wireless Adapter. You
