Samuel , Jun 25, Was someone in a bad mood? And if they screw with me Why would they cripple this? I cannot even get an option in the WLAN chips properties to add a 7 option which gives wireles-N compatibility. I’m going to not only send the laptop back

What I don’t understand is WHY.
You must log in or sign up to reply here. And if they screw with me 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. I nearly passed on the because of this. IF so, complain and ask tech support to give you a link to the “real firmware”. If we can fix a few of these problems, it will save me a lot of time laying down the law with whomever answers the phone over at Dell today!
Why a feature common to many inexpensive notebooks is missing from an allegedly “premium” line like XPS is unknown. Do you already have an account? For some reason the XPS does not appear to 88e0840 gigabit ethernet.
Marvell Yukon’s website claims the 88E8040 Fast LAN Controller does Gigabit….???
Yes, my password is: I believe you’re right. Why would they cripple this? I don’t understand why.
Out 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.
I’m considering calling Dell in a few moments and demand that 88e88040 send me gigavit 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. SamuelJun 26, They wanted to keep the gigabit 888e8040 in the more high end business type machines.
Was this some nutty segmentation strategy?
Unless Dell says it has a GigE connection As anyone successfully connected at “n” speeds? Andrew LBJun 25, Andrew LBJun 26, I cannot even get an option in the WLAN chips properties to add a 7 option which gives wireles-N compatibility. What drivers are needed?

It’s not just Dell BTW Log in or Sign up. No, create an account now.
GregJun 25, I mean, it’s not that this is a feature they declined to add because of cost.
