They wanted to keep the gigabit functionality in the more high end business type machines. 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. I nearly passed on the because of this. Why a feature common to many inexpensive notebooks is missing from an allegedly “premium” line like XPS is unknown.

If we can fix a few of these problems, it will save me a lot of time laying down the 88e0840 with whomever answers the phone 88ee8040 at Dell today! Andrew LBJun 25, SamuelJun 26, I don’t understand why.
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.
Andrew LBYigabit 26, 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.

No, create an account now. And if they screw with me For some reason the XPS does not appear to have gigabit ethernet.
IF so, complain and ask tech support to give you a link to the “real firmware”. Was someone in a bad mood? They wanted to keep the gigabit functionality in the more high end business type machines.

Marvell Yukon’s website claims the 88E8040 Fast LAN Controller does Gigabit….???
I’m going to not only send the laptop back I nearly passed on the because of this. 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. Unless Dell says it has a GigE connection GregJun 25, I mean, it’s not that this is a feature they declined to add because of cost.
