Dell :: E4300 WWAN Antenna Alternative

Jan 20, 2010

I have an E4300 and an E6400. The E6400 came with a 5530 WWAN chip, which I would like to move into my E4300 instead. When opening the WLAN/WWAN compartment of the E4300 however there does not seem to be any wiring for the GSM card.

I then found some antenna wires leading to the Latitude ON slot. Since I really doubt I will be getting a Latitude ON chip in the near future, would I be able to run these wires to the WWAN card?

Dell :: WWAN/GPS Alternative To ControlPoint

Oct 6, 2008

I'm really starting to hate the bloat of controlpoint, but I have a 5530 WWAN card, so need some software to control it, while searching the Dell support site I cam across R198215.EXE which is a Sony Ericsson Wireless Manager for 5530 cards, this is actually intended for use on the Inspiron Mini 910, but it works a treat on the E6500 too.

The download is 72MB but it only seems to install 5MB of software (you could probably trim that down by removing language dlls), you only need to run the software when you actually want to use the card.

I even got the GPS functioning which is more than even the factory installed drivers could manage, the COM7: port was always silent before, now it happily spits out NMEA sentences

Now to remove as much of ControlPoint as I can get away with, hopefully without having to reinstall XP again.

Dell :: E4300 Alps Alternative Mouse Driver/Software?

May 11, 2009

The E4300 uses the Dell Touchpad driver and I think it feels very buggy.
It looks like the Dell uses an Alps hardware

This is probably the first time where I'm quite annoyed by a touchpad/buttons. The touchpad buttons do not always respond immediately, sometimes requiring two presses to click.

And sometimes, when I'm using the touchpad, it will automatically click on a link I didn't intend to.

I know this seems minor, but it's quite annoying at times. I almost returned the laptop because of it, but now I'm trying to live with it but it would be most helpful if there was an alternative.

Dell :: WWAN Slot For Non WWAN Cards

Jul 29, 2009

Have D420 here and was thinking if it's possible to use WWAN slot for any other mini pci-e cards like SSD or video decoder. Now Dell docs state not to mix WLAn and WWAN cards between their assigned slots.

Feb 7, 2009

I have not been able to exceed 100mbps speeds even with DIR-655 and DIR-825 on my M1330 with Intel 4965.

I have an LED Screen ....

Dell :: WIFI Card And Antenna Cables In Latitude E Series

Sep 3, 2009

I have ordered E6400 but I have choosen Intel 5100 wifi card with two antenna port. I heard that this model isn't very good so I'm thinking about the upgrade to Intel 5300 with 3 antenna ports. I have a question about the antenna cables. How many cables are there near the wifi card in latitude with 5100? two or three? If there are only 2 cables, so the upgrade brings me no advantage.

Acer :: Fitting A Wifi Antenna

Jun 11, 2009

I'm upgrading my friends TM2200, and installing a Wifi card and antenna. The antenna needs to go inside the laptop cover (as you probably know), but there's a foil sheet inside behind the LCD screen.

Can anyone tell me if I just stick the antenna pads onto the foil, or do I need to remove small sections of the foil and stick them to the plastic?

It's a Tyco antenna I'm fitting.

Dell :: Adding External Antenna To Xps M1710 Internal Wireless Card

Mar 23, 2009

This is what I am working with:

Computer rig:
Dell XPS M1710 Review (pics, specs)

Wireless card intel specs:
[url]

And I think this is the external antenna I would like to get (would love any suggestions):
5 dBi Magnetic Mount Omni Antenna - Omnidirectional Antennas for 2.4GHz - Antennas - Fleeman, Anderson & Bird, Corp.

The pdf says the wireless card antenna is, "Hirose* U.FL-R-SMT mates with cable connector U.FL-LP-066"

So basically is all I have to do is buy one of these, 4 inches U.FL Pigtail:U.FL to MMCX WiFi 2.4GHz 802.11g - eBay (item 160119011606 end time Apr-09-09 01:58:22 PDT)

Drill a hole in my laptop case and install one of these connected to the first adapter that is connected directly to the card:
MMCX to N-Male, Pigtail 19" 100-Series - CA-MMNMCN19

Now the n-female from the antenna can then connect to the now adapted laptop wireless external antenna?

I am presenting all of this as a question because I think this is what I need to do but I would like to double check with some knowledgeable people first that this can work, is feasible, will bring desired results (increased range) etc.

Dell :: Alternative For Quickset On Vista 64 Bit (Vostro)

Oct 14, 2008

Dell does not release 64-bit Quickset for Vostro 1310 and 1510. The 32-bit ones won't work on 64 bit Vista.

That means you won't know how loud you change your volume, or whether it is muted or not. I tried to install Quickset x64 for other laptops but all shows "unsupported system" during the installation.

The workaround is to download the latest Dell ControlPoint System Manager.

This is the link: Dell ControlPoint System Manager

It is compatible with E4200, E4300 and M6400. However it installs successfully on my Vostro 1310 running on Vista Business x64. The volume indicators works, the mute notification works, change of brightness works. The only drawback is ControlPoint does not work with wifi/BT indicators. You flip the switch and there won't be any indicators for it on the screen.

Dell :: Alternative To ControlPoint Connection Manager

May 11, 2009

I have found a good alternative to Dell ControlPoint Connection Manager for my Mobile broadband connection. It's Sony Ericsson Wireless Manager.

It's very simple and worked perfectly without any configuration.
I guess it will only work with the 5530 card, though.

HP/Compaq :: Crap. Busted TV Tuner Antenna Adapter

Dec 3, 2009

i just built an hd antenna and i was scanning for new channels and it was picking up some awesome channels and then i tripped over the cord and busted that little adapter that converts a normal coax cable to the mini one that plugs into the tv tuner.

anyone know the part number? I've looked everywhere online and can only find the partnumber for the antenna, not the adapter by itself. is this mini plug a standard? i even chatted with hp parts department and they were of no help.

Sony :: ADH Not Available -- Alternative Warranty

Apr 20, 2010

Just got off the phone with Sony and found out that you can only purcahse the accidental damage coverage from Sony if you buy the laptop from them.

Since I picked up my laptop from Amazon, I cannot get ADH.

I feel pretty strongly about having ADH coverage and am curious if any of you have picked this up through a third party. In particular I would like something that will cover the machine from:

Normal mechanical failure
Water damage
Being dropped/sat on

Sony :: Alternative To Vaio TT

What other alternatives to the Vaio TT is there out there? I *really* loved my TT, but unfortunately I had two with the same touchpad problem and don't want to risk getting a third (although Sony was very helpful in replacing and trying to resolve the problem).

I especially liked the high resolution, the balanced size, the SSD and the battery time.

Apple :: Macbook - Alternative To VLC

Feb 25, 2009

I just got a Macbook. Very happy with it, its very good. However, I currently have VLC installed so I can played some of my movies which are in .avi and some music. I need a playlist function and able to do full screen. I like VLC, however - i find it is not stable. Sometimes it keeps crashing and also, it does not handle playback smoothly.

I've tried mplayer, it seems good, however it does not support fullscreen mode.

Is there any other alternatives. I might have to download the xvid component for quicktime to enable playback of .avi files and get use to the idea of using itunes to play all my music.

Dell :: Cheapest Place/coupons/deals To Buy A M6400? Or An Alternative?

May 18, 2009

I'm thinking of purchasing the M6400 laptop. I cannot stand my current laptop anymore, the Inspiron 9300 . It doesn't suit the tasks I'm involved with... it was handed down to me by my brother who is a programmer while I'm in the graphics/media field.

So I was wondering if any of you know where I can buy the m6400 for the cheapest price? or perhaps any coupons or deals that you may know of.

I'm a student and can't afford the m6400 at the current price on dell's website or without any coupons or deals...

Also I was wondering what is an alternative laptop to the Dell M6400. I'd love one with a smaller screen size but with a similar performance, although there can be some compromise. I will be using the laptop mainly for architectural renderings, 3d modelling, animation, graphics, multi-tasking between softwares etc... I'd like one with 8GB Ram (no need for ability to upgrade to 16GB etc like the m6400)

I'm hoping the alternative will be much cheaper than the m6400 due to the smaller size, and lower specs etc.

I talked to the dell help guy and he recommended the XPS studio 13 model... i don't trust him as he didn't seem too knowledgeable...

HP/Compaq :: HP QuickPlay To Launch An Alternative OS

Feb 10, 2010

My HP Pavillion dv2680 entertainment notebook has a feature called QuickPlay which consists of a special button on the keyboard which, when pressed, will turn the notebook on and launch the media software HP QuickPlay as soon as its up and running.

My question is, is can this button be used to launch an alternative operating system?

This button has been designed for launching the notebook into a media player rather than a notebook. The operating system (Vista in my case) is receiving some form of notification that QuickPlay was requested, instead of a usual boot.

Such an option would mean a pre-Windows Vista boot loader to interpret the options during boot.

HP/Compaq :: Alternative To Quicktouch Software

Jan 10, 2009

I've got a HP Pavilion dv6000z series notebook. There was no OSD software for the Quick launch buttons that came pre-installed on this notebook when I purchased it in Aug '07 but I installed the Quicktouch software that is now available/pre-installed on the newer dv5/dv4 series notebooks and it works relatively decent. Anyone know what I'm talking about? It's the one when you press the volume slider a small black rectangular box pops up to show the volume level? Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew a better OSD for the Quick launch buttons? My friend has got a Lenovo SL300 series notebook and the OSD for his buttons work very well (including display brightness with the fn button) so I thought there might be something similar that will work on the HP notebooks as well. I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit alongside Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit beta.

I want to replace my 1810T's Intel Wifi Link 5100 with an Intel Wifi Link 5300.

The 5100 has two antenna connectors and so the 1810T has two antennas already installed in it.

Can I just place the third antenna here (empty area next to mini PCIe slot):

Dell :: Webcam On Vostro 1700 Crashing (LiveCam.exe) - Any Ideas Or Alternative Software?

May 14, 2009

I'm having a few problems with the web cam software in my Dell Vostro 1700 laptop.

When I run the web cam manager it displays video fine, but as soon as I start to record video it crashes, saying livecam.exe has stopped working.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it's still no good.

Any ideas? I've not used it for quite some time, so don't know how long it's been like it. Alternatively, are there any other good free apps that let you eaily record video on a web cam?

I also have Skype and MSN Messenger installed, but wouldn't have thougt they'd have done the damage (as it's only when I try to record that it crashes).
