Samuel , Jun 25, I nearly passed on the because of this. I’m going to not only send the laptop back IF so, complain and ask tech support to give you a link to the “real firmware”. What drivers are needed? I mean, it’s not that this is a feature they declined to add because of cost. I believe you’re right.

I mean, it’s not that this is a feature they declined to add because of cost. If we can fix a few of these problems, it will save me a lot of time laying down gigxbit law with whomever answers the phone over at Dell today!
Marvell Yukon’s website claims the 88E8040 Fast LAN Controller does Gigabit….???
Share This Page Tweet. I’m going to not only send the laptop back 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?
What drivers are needed? Yes, my password is: I nearly passed on the because of this. SamuelJun 26, Do you giagbit have an account?

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. What I don’t understand is WHY. And if they screw with me Was someone in a bad mood?
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 believe you’re right.

As anyone successfully connected at “n” speeds? Andrew LBJun 26, SamuelJun 25, GregJun 25, Was this some nutty segmentation strategy?
IF so, complain and ask tech support to give you a link to 88ee8040 “real firmware”. No, create an account now. Andrew LBJun 25, Your name or email address: For some reason the XPS does not appear to have gigabit ethernet.
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 cannot even get an 8e8040 in the WLAN chips properties to add a 7 option which gives wireles-N compatibility.
