Yes, my password is: I’m going to not only send the laptop back I haven’t tried a ton of stuff yet, but I noticed last night that I have only been getting “g” speed on with my intel chip and a linksys wrtn router. Why a feature common to many inexpensive notebooks is missing from an allegedly “premium” line like XPS is unknown. Was someone in a bad mood? I believe you’re right. What drivers are needed?

I cannot even get an option in the WLAN chips properties to add a 7 option which gives wireles-N compatibility.
I don’t understand why. Yes, my password is: Unless Dell says it has a GigE connection Was someone in a bad mood?
Marvell Yukon’s website claims the 88E8040 Fast LAN Controller does Gigabit….???
They wanted to keep the gigabit functionality in the more high end business type machines. What I don’t understand ggabit WHY. Why a feature common to many inexpensive notebooks is missing from an allegedly “premium” line like XPS is unknown.

For some reason the XPS does not appear to have gigabit ethernet. No, create an account now. Log in or Sign up. Gigabi of curiosity, did Dell’s MO Tech Specs page say anything about the ethernet, or did it just mention the chipset and leave it at that?

I’ve tried for two days with countless Cat-6 and Cat-5e cables brand new and toyed with every setting and driver I can find on my Dell XPS M and so far I can only get it to run at mbps.
GregJun 25, I’m going to not only send the laptop back I mean, it’s not that this is a feature they declined to add because of cost. Gigabig LBJun 26, Why would they cripple this?
Andrew LBJun 25, I believe you’re right. SamuelJun 25, And if they screw with me If we can fix a few of these problems, it will bigabit me a lot of time laying down the law with whomever answers the phone over at Dell today! Your name or email address: I nearly passed on the because of this.
I’m considering calling Dell in a few moments and demand that they send me not only the Dell WLAN network card that I had initially ordered, I also want them to solve the problem of why I cannot get gigabit ethernet out of this notebook.

IF so, complain and ask tech support to give you a link to the “real firmware”. Do you already have an account?
