I can’t say as I am still new to it although I have looked at many different flavors and distributions out there. So I know for sure that it works with Windows XP and would if the driver was right for this in Linux. 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. Hi I thought I would update this. If you have the WindowsXP.

Dell Latitude D Wireless not connecting(solved)
Hi I thought I would update this. If there’s a harder way to do something I’ll probably find it. So I know for sure that it works with Windows XP and would if the driver was right for this in Linux.
So anything not too complicated as I still don’t understand Linux near as much as I do Windows. Maybe Linux works differently?
I hadn’t thought about the firewall but I can check it out and see if I can connect. The F2 key is located on the topmost row of keys on the Dell keyboard.
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 layitude the proper encryption key for your router?
I can’t say as I am still new to it although I have looked at many different flavors and distributions out there. Thank you for your help! Press the F2 key again to turn off Wi-Fi on the Dell laptop.
I unfortunately can’t connect to any of them even if I had the key. 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. One is to the manuals available from Dell, the other is from a site called eHow, which I have gotten good info from in the past.

This by the way was a test to see how Linux would work with this laptop using another hard drive I have for it. Thanks to everyone who came to my aid I will keep this open in case anyone else wants to comment.

OldGuy Hero Member Posts: I don’t even think you can do that with Linux and the FN key that controls the functions at the top of the keyboard.
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. Press the “F2” key once while holding the Function key. I know wired to the router I can connect directly to the internet but not wireless presently.

Taking a quick look on the net found these references. Sometimes things get dropped from newer kernels and older kit won’t function anymore.
