Has anyone else tried getting the VLAN support working on a Dell Latitude E6500? The network device I have is a "Intel(R) 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection". Using the latest drivers available from support.dell.com, both the Dell download page and the driver report it as version 188.8.131.52. The Dell download page states it as A01, and dated 2009-02-24. The driver reports a date of 2008-04-04. Under the "Advanced" tab of the properties from Device Manager, it shows "Priority & VLAN" as set to "Priority & VLAN Enabled". However, it doesn't appear to provide a way to add and configure the VLANs. For Intel network cards, this typically requires the Intel PROSet application. The only download I can find from Dell is the "Intel 825xx Gigabit Platform LAN Network Device - Application", 14.0.2/Gold Build 01, A00, 2008-08-13 - and it is for 32-bit Windows only
I'm very surprised that Dell only provides DDR2-800Mhz memory support for Latitude E6500 instead of E4300. I don't understand, the built in chipset of E6500 is a Mobile Intel� PM45 Express Chipset that support DDR3 Memory so why the E6500 don't support it ? Intel tech specs : The Mobile Intel� PM45 Express Chipset delivers Microsoft Windows Vista* Premium support with the highest level of Microsoft Windows Aero* experience.1 It delivers outstanding system performance through high-bandwidth interfaces such as dual-channel DDR3 and DDR2 memory support, 1066 MHz system bus, PCI Express* x16 graphics port and PCI Express x1 I/O ports, Serial ATA, and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity. Use of the Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset includes support for Intel� Active Management Technology (Intel� AMT) 4.0, the next generation of remote client network management for business. Use of the Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset also includes support for dual graphics with ATI CrossfireX*, for extreme gaming. Support for DDR3 and DDR2 memory technology Does anyone try to upgrade E6500 memory to DDR3-1066Mhz ?

I am very curious with this Frankenstein-ish upgrade. I have seen both the Precision M4400 and the Latitude E6500 up close before and I do realize that both laptops use pretty much the same lower chassis and other modular internals with the only difference is the screen and screen bezel and touchpad unit. With the exact port locations the same. Is it worth it to get a refurbished M4400 motherboard and swap it with a Latitude E6500 one and putting it in a fully working Latitude E6500? The reason I ask about this is a friend of mine's mother works for a company that resells their ~1 year old Latitudes for a really cheap price (I think Latitude E6500's go around $250-$350 a piece!) and replace them with newer Latitudes and (rarely Precisions) from Dell the following year.
got this (invoice date 9/23) for home office & we're setting it up but noticed the palmrest & particularly the keyboard have a degree of mush flex that I never experienced with any other notebook, is this much Flex normal for E6500 or should I exchange-return it? (as seen somewhat in youtube video of another E6500 owner below; keyboard caves like pressing a bouncy ball, more the closer the keys are to the center)?: [url] No other review here mentioned this: Dell Latitude E6500 Review With Pictures (Updated Constantly) [url] What is Keyboard Flex? Keyboard flex? monitor flex? Tech Support told me the flex is normal to withstand stress better & keyboard replacement may not make it any different & that the return policy is 21 days (today-tomorrow) but Customer care assured me it's 30 days so I should have until next week by Oct 22. [url] "New Vostro, OptiPlex, Latitude, and Dell Precision systems purchased directly from divisions designated by Dell as Commercial or Public may be returned within 30 days from the date on the packing slip or invoice."
I've got a choice at the moment between two latitudes: 1) Dell Latitude D630: 2.2ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 120gb HDD, dvd/cdrw drive, vista, nvidia Quaddro GFX 2) Dell Latitude E6500: 2.26ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 80gb HDD, DVDRW, Vista, Which do you reckon i ought to go for between the two? The laptop will be used primarily between home and university, so will be taken between the two places in my shoulder messenger bag, so will probably take a few bumps
I just ordered a Dell Latitude E6500. Now I'm looking to get a cable lock for it. I know they are not the best at protecting your laptop, but some protection is better than none, besides I just want to lock down to a table while I need to run to the bathroom for a minute. So, from personal experience, if you have a Dell Latitude E6500/E6400, what locks work/fit best for it? I've done some research and I've tried to read around(couldn't find much on here for the specific laptop). So far I'm looking at these two (but I have no word from latitude E6500/E6400 users): ..

I just ordered a new Latitude E6500 (and my boss is paying for it!). It will come with Vista Business 32 and I plan on reformatting the machine and doing a clean install. My new system will have: P8600 2 GB RAM 160 GB 5400 HDD WXGA+ LED Display 4500MHD Integrated Webcam Intel Wifi 5100 Dell 370 Bluetooth I prefer to have my system as clean as possible. Is there any included software that I will need to reinstall?
I've been wavering back and forth between the T500 & E6500 for the past few weeks, but been pretty satisfied with our past Dell fleet and their service. Up to Monday I was pretty much set on the E6500's, but I'm starting to see more and more threads about troublesome issues on the E-series. Things that would certainly bother me and my team. Maybe we can keep track of all the issues and hopefully resolutions to them on this thread. Here's what I've compiled so far: Let me know what else to add. 1. Poor quality WXGA+ LED screens Disappointed with LED LCD in E6400 E6400 vs. XPS M1330 LED Screens 2. Drifting Trackpad / Lack of proper sensitivity adjustments E6500 TrackPoint drifting badly 3.

I have a latitude E6500 with an nVidia Quadro NVS 160M and I was wondering if there are any more gaming-specific cards compatible with this laptop. I know chances are very small there are any that fit, but I was just wondering. I can't find anything about graphics card upgrades on dell site, so I'm assuming its not supported in any way. I should be able to do the upgrade myself.
I just purchased this system for $605 (ex tax) in the outlet for my aunt, who is barely computer literate. She'll use it for email and skype. She needs Ultimate for foreign language support.

I have Dell Latitude D820 with NVidia Quadro NVS 120M, but its causing failures, probably NVIDIA GPU. There are vertical straight lines on the screen, sometimes it won't boot at all, sometimes it would go dark screen and never start... etc Its been approximately 2 years since Ive had it. Im planning on buying Dell latitude E6500. I have the following questions: 1) Most people's reviews about E6500 are very disappointing, is it really true that E6500 is worse than the D820 or D series laptops in terms of build quality and hardware failure problems? 2) Considering Im having trouble with the NVidia GOU (probably) and that some people have witnessed GPU failures in Apple Macbook Pro (which uses 9400M and 9600M GPUs) and E6500 uses 160M (9300M GPU), so its a 9-series GPUs failing. Should I consider having Quadro NVS 160M in E6500 or I should avoid it and get Intel's Graphics card for now? 3) How much performance affect is there if comparing NVS 160 M with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD ? regarding the basic 3D simulations, such as using Macromedia Director or Studio Max, or games? I mean to ask, is Quadro NVS 160M really worth it?
Just did a clean install on a Dell Latitude E6400 of Slackware 13.1 and, for the most part, all is working great.

I recently purchased a Latitude E6500 with fingerprint reader. I was so impressed with the Studio15 that I had. Here is the problem the software with the E6500 doesn't let you login on websites or programs, like the Studio did. When contacted Dell they stated that it will only work with Vista. My E6500 came preloaded with XP Pro. So I bit the bullet and downgraded to Vista. Guess what still no use except to log into windows. Wave software SUCKS! Does any one know of software that will work in XP with the Latitude? Digitalpersona does not have a XP version yet. Yet on my Studio I converted to XP and it worked. Anyone have a link to the fingerprint software on the Studio?
I need a new laptop and in my price range started looking at the Vostro 1510, then kept reading that the Vostro fans were noisy, so I looked at the Lenovo SL500. Then after reading conflicting reports, I stepped it up a bit and started looking at the Latitudes. I can get refurbished Latitude E6500 in the outlet for a bit more. I am fairly accomplished computer user (just don't do hardware). Is it worth it? I have been reading postings about many problems on these as well so I'm just not sure what to do at this point. I am definitely looking for a matte screen, and Windows XP, bluetooth, and camera. If I purchase the E6500 I would like the backlit keyboard. Are there any other features I should look for? On the E6500 which graphics card is recommended -- Intel or NIVIDIA?
This Dell document (which isn't that new) tends to confirm the assumptions about the numbering of the refreshes of the Latitude / Precision series. The Dell Client Deployment Pack 1.0 supports the following Dell systems: Quote: Latitiude Series XT2, XT2 , XFR , D420 , D500 , C510 , Z600 , E5410 , E5510 , E5400 E5500 , LT , E4310 , E4300 , E6510 , E6500 , E4200 , XT , E6410 E6410 ATG , E6410 XFR , E6400 , E6400 ATG , XFR E6400 OptiPlex Series 160L , 780 , 780USFF , 380 , GX1 , 580 , 960 , 760 , 360 , 745 , 755 760 , 745c , xE , 980 Precision Series M4500 , M4400 , 390 , M6300 , M4300 , T7400 , T5400 , M2300 , T7500 T500 , T3500 , M6400 , R5400 , M6500 , R5400 , T3400 This suggests that the Latitude numbers are what everyone assumed they would be. The M6500 has arrived but, so far, Google isn't unearthing anything about the E4310, E6410 and E6510.
I am in the process of ordering a new e6500. I have been reading through the forum for the last week and I came to the following configuration but would like to clarify a couple of questions. Just an idea of what laptops I have, I am using Latitude D610, Latitude D620, Thinkpad T60. This might give you an idea of what I am used to. I find T60 is the best overall, D620 very mobile but slow, D610 ok and stable. Here is what I am thinking for the e6500. Latitude E6500 Intel� Core� 2 Duo P8600 (2.40GHz, 3M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB) Operating Systems Genuine Windows Vista Business Bonus-Windows XP Professional downgrade Memory 4.0GB, DDR2-800 SDRAM, 2 DIMMS Internal Keyboard Internal English Backlit Keyboard Intel� Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD 250GB Hard Drive, 7200RPM with Free Fall Sensor No Fingerprint Reader 15.4� UltraSharp� Wide WXGA+ (1440x900) LED Display-Brushed Metal Black Dell Wireless� 370 Bluetooth Module Modem Internal 56K Modem 8X DVD+/-RW w/Roxio and Cyberlink Power DVD� Camera / Microphone Integrated Webcam with digital microphone Intel� WiFi Link 5300 802.11a/g/n Draft Mini Card Intel vPro� Technology�s advanced mgmt features are Off for future use This machine will be used mainly for the Internet and not so demanding applications. Now, 1) What do you think overall? Any issues to watch for? 2) Should I go for the WUXGA? I have been reading about the small font but was not sure. My T60 is set to 1280x800 3) I read about HDD noise, should I downgrade to 5400 or maybe upgrade to SSD?
I need to select a new laptop for work. My company allows Dell only. Currently, I have a Dell Latitude D610. (yes time to upgrade). I travel often. Therefore, weight is a factor. I'm not sure if I should go with the 14" or 15" screen. My current 14" seems OK. I need a laptop where I can use a port replicator. I believe that this limits my choices. Some of the models I like from a design standpoint don't seem to offer this. So, I ended up with: Latitude E6400 Latitude E6500 Latitude E5500 Latitude E5400 I couldn't really figure out what the difference is between the E5x and E6x.
I'm looking at purchasing another Dell laptop, but more basic than my current Latitude E6500. I had a Inspiron 15 perfectly configured, except for the operating system. Apparently, Windows 7 Home Premium is the only available choice for an operating system (with or without a Belkin easy transfer cable). I was first shopping through SMB. When I called them, they said I'd need to purchase through Home & Home Office to get Ultimate. However, after checking there, I see it's not listed as an option through them, either. I went back an checked on Latitudes, thinking that it should be offered there, as Latitudes are more of a business-class model. At least through SMB, apparently Ultimate isn't offered on the E5400 or the E5500 - only the E6400 and E6500?
UPDATE: Cheat sheet to the superclean install posted [url] I am currently experimenting on seeing how far beyond the manufacturer's specifications I can take my machine. I'm keeping track of the steps I've taken, and will update this post when I feel I've reached the limits of what this machine is capable of doing, along with exact steps on how to reproduce my setup. Here's what I've currently achieved: - A maximum of 9 hours of battery life on a 6 cell battery using 6.5 watts - 6.5 hours of typical battery life while browsing using 8.5 watts - No audio stuttering/crackling and perfectly green DPC latency - Super quiet operation with no fan noise (fan stays off and doesn't spin) - CPU temperatures around 33 degrees, rest of computer around 40 celcius - Roughly 25 seconds to reboot to a working desktop (not just login screen) - Only about 0.37 gigs of ram being used when idle Machine specs are Dell Latitude E6500, Intel P8400 CPU, Intel X4500MHD Graphics, 1440x900 WXGA+ LED Screen, Corsair 128 Gigs SSD, 1.5 Gigs RAM, Dell 1397 Wireless, Dell 370 Bluetooth, DVD RW Drive, Webcam, Backlit Keyboard, 6 Cell Battery, Windows 7 Beta Build 7000.
I bought a Latitude E6500 one year ago,I am planning to change the internal HD for a SSD HD to gain some speed; since my hardware knowledge is very scarce, I am planning to buy this SSD to host my GNU/Linux: OCZ Agility-2 SandForce SSD.URL....But I don't even know if my latitude is, I quote, "SATA 2.6 Compliant, 3Gb/s and 1.5Gb/s support".BTW, is it difficult to open the laptop to change the hard disk?
A friend of mine has a new Latitude E6500 and wanted to put a 500 GB drive in instead of the 160 GB it came with. So I used DriveImage XML to copy drive-to-drive the Dell-installed drive to the new 500 GB. When I try to boot off the 500 GB drive, the machine simply stops at the Intel RAID controller screen. I tried AHCI and IIRT modes in the BIOS and resetting the BIOS to optimized, but nothing helped; I always got that same result. I have also already tried imaging the drive twice: once before the initial boot-up and once after I installed some programs. Both times, it simply stops at the Intel screen after POST. The BIOS does recognize the drive and its full capacity, BTW, and I updated to the latest BIOS, too. Should I be doing something differently? I really don't want to have to spend the time installing XP and programs from scratch and I prefer to have him use the Dell image and have the diagnostics partition available, too.
I have seen some AC Adaptors for latitude e-series (Latitude E6500 & E6400) and they was very thin and light. However, yesterday I received my M4400 and the AC is too big and heavy in comparation with que latitude ACs. Reviewing the orders, I've seen that Latitude's have "450-11869 Power Cord: European 90W AC Adaptor 2 pin" whereas M4400 have "450-11970 Power Supply And Power Cord: Worldwide 130W AC Adapter with European Power Cord".
The new colors Regal Red and Regatta Blue are now available at Dell's website for the Latitude E4300. E6400 and E6500. The E4200 does not show the option as of yet, but that will surely be remedied soon. They seem to come with a hefty increase in price however...
I have a small question. What kind of case (plastic or magnium) have a Dell Latitude E6500 with BLUE and RED colors of case?
Quick question. I have a Dell Latitude E6500 with Fedora 13 on it. There is a wireless radio switch (hardware) on the right side of the machine, next to the CD drive. When I flip it to "off", the wireless gets disconnected -- as I expect. But when I flip the switch back to the "on" position, nothing happens -- wireless is still disabled. How do I re-enable the wireless after I flip the switch back to the "on" position?
I just installed fc12 on a Dell Latitude E6500 laptop. Everything is fine except that my Left and Up arrow keys are inactive so .e.g. I can't review bash history. In the "keyboard preferences" GUI the keyboard model is "evdev-managed keyboard" (although I have also tried without success the model specific for this laptop) and the only layout is "USA". Have done an update of all packages without fixing this problem.
I was wanting to connect my laptop Dell Latitude E6500 to my LG 32" LCD TV. The TV has HDMI ports and my Latitude E6500 only comes with a VGA out. I thought a 2m VGA to HDMI cable would suffice but when I select the HDMI input on the TV I get the No Signal message. If I check the Desktop->Screen resolution properties, my LG TV shows up in the Display dropdown. I have tried changing the resolution for the TV but it always shows the No Signal message.
I have a Dell Latitude E6500 running Opensuse 11.3. As far as I can tell the module for my wireless card is loaded correctly and it's working: Code: sudo lspci | grep -i wifi 0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation WiFi Link 5100 Code: [ 556.642557] iwlagn: Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link AGN driver for Linux, in-tree:d [ 556.642560] iwlagn: Copyright(c) 2003-2010 Intel Corporation [Code]..... The funny thing is that it works fine in a Fedora installation, which has an older kernel and older drivers, on the same laptop. The fact that the indicator light doesn't come in when the physical switch is turned on suggests it's something to do with that switch.
I am looking for a laptop with a matte display (at least 15.4'') and low power consumption, and so far I've selected these ones: - Latitude E5500 (WXGA anti-glare) - Latitude E6500 (Led backlit) - Vostro 1720 (WXGA anti-glare) (always with P8600) I really like the Vostro 1720 features, but I am a bit worried about its power consumption (having a 17'' display, a NVIDIA video card, ...). There are very complete reviews for both Latitude models here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-...k.11958.0.html
Intel's core i3/i5/i7 Arrandale processors will be released soon (Q1 2010). They all have integrated graphics but support external graphics too. Do you think these processors will be used in Dell Latitude and/or Precision laptops?
Will the Dell Latitude D830 have any trouble supporting an Intel WiFi Link 5300 WLAN card? I know its a generation newer than my laptop but the interface is the same so it should work without any issues, right? Im basically looking for a wireless g stable, low power, wlan card that will work with this laptop and think the wifi link 5300 may fit the bill.
Has anyone out there any information on the integrated contactless reader in the E6400/E6500? I know it's based on the Broadcom 5880 chipset, but not much else. Even Dell can't tell me much, other that it's supposed to support RFID and ISO 14443. I'm looking at developing a RFID application to which would use the Dell reader if I can find any information.
I just picked up a Latitude E6500 from the outlet, and it only comes with B wireless. People on the forum have mentioned that the E6500 has 3 Mini PCIe slots. One is full length and has 3 antenna connections, one is half length with 2, and one is half length with 1 (for Bluetooth). I'm planning on upgrading with an Intel 5300 wifi card, it's amazing how cheap they are on eBay. The 5300 comes in two configurations, full and half, but it's a 3x3 antenna, so it'll have to go in my full length slot. However, most of the listings seem to be for half, and they cost the same. I figure I might as well get the cheaper half length card that also saves .5 ounces of weight if it'll fit in the slot, and the antenna wires will reach. Does anyone know if this would work, or do I need to find one of the full length cards?
When I customize a Dell 15/17 or XPS 16, there are only options for Dell wifi cards. I believe these are Broadcom cards. I dual boot Linux distros and Broadcom cards are generally a headache for Linux users. I also don't like that Dell doesn't include the same Intel wifi card options as they do for their Latitude and Precision series .....
my laptop is just at a black screen after the dell screen. I clicked the error checking for the "C Drive" and "At Startup" and when i restarted it just went to a black screen after the dell screen. I have restarted several times trying to get Windows 7 to startup with no avail. What should i do? Its a dell latitude laptop with like 2gb of ram intel core 2 duo proc (not sure on speed)
I was doing some testing on my CR-48 notebook, which seemed to be very slow wirelessly when running Ubuntu 11.04. I cracked it open and decided to swap out the wireless cards with an Intel Wifi Link 1000 card I had in my other laptop, which is a Dell Latitude. I then began to do some speed testing, using speedtest.net. I tested each laptop 5 times for each card, so I did 20 tests total. 5 - CR-48 - Intel 5 - CR-48 - Atheros 5 - Latitude - Intel 5 - Latitude - Atheros The results I think speak for themselves. While the Atheros card no doubt *works*, it doesn't work as efficiently as the Intel card I tried. I also noticed if I shut off my wireless security, my speeds drastically improved on the Atheros card. On my router (WRT54G) I used both mixed mode, G-only mode, WPA, WPA2 and a mixture of TKIP, AES, and TKIP+AES encryption. My results were the same across the board unless I took off security.

Latitude E6500 and Precision M4400 were basically the same machine, the differences being the M4400's (obviously) different aesthetic on the lid, the more powerful GPU options, and a handful of other tweaks that I don't really remember the specifics of. From what I can tell, the situation looks to be about the same this time around with the 15.6" Latitude E6510 vs. the 15.6" Precision M4500. The Precision offers beefier GPU options and a 1600x900 sRGB LED display option, but I want the lower-power WLED 1080p display anyway so that's no loss
I'm running Windows 2008 64 bit on Dell Latitude e6400. Most everything works. The only issue is the Ethernet Gigabit adapter. The Vista 64 bit driver exists stating that no hardware was found. Dell supports says this laptop was specifically designed for Vista, no Win 2008 support if provided.
Had to reformat a Latitude D810 and reinstall XP OS. Since all drivers were wiped from drive I downloaded them from Dell Support. Have one (1) remaining device in Device Manager with yellow exclamation mark on it labeled Multiport Communications Port (COM3). Cannot find any driver in Dell Support that correlates to this device.

I just bought a Dell Wireless 370 for my Latitude E6400 and installed it. I have Windows Server 2008 Standard x64 installed on the laptop. I tried to use the bluetooth drivers for Windows Vista x64 (for the Dell Wireless 370 and downloaded from the Dell Support website), but for some reason they don't work. There are the following three unknown devices in my Device Manager: MS_BTHBRB, MS_BTHPAN and MS_RFCOMM
Once I turn off the wireless switch, I can't seem to turn wireless capability back on without rebooting the machine. The wifi LED remains unlighted and 'diagnose and repair' attempts do not work (telling me to turn wireless capability on by flicking the switch, which is already in the ON position). Has anyone else faced this issue?

Depending on whether Dell can fix my M1530 with a motherboard replacement, I'm thinking of asking that they replace it with a Latitude E6500. My father has this machine, and he seems pretty happy with it (aside from a few random crashes due to the way the IT Tech at his company configured the poor thing - the OS is a real mess).1) Are there any outstanding issues with the E6500 currently? Which is the preferred wireless card? 2) Does the Quadro video card have the same overheating issues as my 8600M in my M1530? I don't really game too much (all I'd be playing would be Half-Life based games) so I could get away with the X4500HD if I wanted to, but I'd prefer a dedicated graphics card (and I'd be having a screen which is 1920x1200).
Inspiron 17R 5720 preloaded with Windows 8 but my bosses mother would not be able to navigate through the tiles. I therefore installed all of the available drivers from dell.com and device driver cd.Last piece is to find the SM BUS CONTROLLER driver.Can someone point me in the right direction? Already tried intel.com and dell support (only supports laptop with preinstalled windows8 so I'm out of luck there).I know it Applies to: ChipsetIntel Management Engine Interface | Intel Management Engine
I am running CentOs 5.3 x86_64 on a Dell Latitude E6400 and can't get dual head to work. My graphics card(s) are Intel Mobile 4 integrated (one in the laptop, one in the docking station) My displays are two Dell 2208 WFP I run the "Display settings" GUI and select "Dual head", "Spanning desktops" with the right card & monitor. When I restart X it fails to start with stack trace in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file (full log attached) Backtrace: My /etc/X11/xorg.conf is below.
Looking at getting a new laptop for some of the guys in my office, but trying to figure out if any of these wireless cards will be supported by the kernel, hoping not to do any serious kernel hacking to get them working. The cards are - Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 802.11a/b/g/n - Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 802.11a/b/g/n - Dell Wireless 1501 802.11b/g/n - Dell Wireless 1530 802.11a/g/n If any one has experience with those cards being supported let me know, or if you know where i can find the drivers for them that'd rock too.
Today I found on Dell's support page there's a new firmware and application with title "Latitude On Flash". I have E4300 with Latitude On capable but I never used it at all. So I thought this might be the thing that makes the Latitute On something usable. But my installation process fails with message saying there's no flash device (module?) found on my laptop

I have a Dell Latitude D520 with an Intel 945GM Integrated Graphics Card. I have been unable to get the desktop effects to work in either Jaunty or Karmic. When selecting Normal/Extra/Custom, I get an error: Code: Desktop effects could not be enabled Graphics card info: Code: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 942/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) I've looked at countless threads pertaining to this issue, but nothing I could find resolved my issue.
I have just received a refurb E6500 from the Dell outlet and felt as if it wouldn't be powerful enough for engineering (found an M4400 on the outlet a day after I bought the E6500 that would have fit my budget ). So after reading some reviews and looking at some pictures I have decided to do a motherboard swap with an M4400 (and if everything works out make $60 from it all too!)
I ran into a problem that seems to be related to: [URL] with an HP Desktop. The desktop has a Intel 82567LM-3 on board gigabit ethernet adapter which on a fresh install of 11.3 would not operate properly. The e1000e driver was properly detected however on loading, the ethernet interface was never initialized. My solution was to get the latest e1000e driver from intel.com: Network Adapter Driver for PCI-E Gigabit Network Connections under Linux* [Code].....
