The Dell Latitude D600 is a small, light laptop originally designed for business users. The lightweight case design and built-in Wi-Fi make the Dell Latitude D600 an excellent choice for travel. The internal Wi-Fi on the Dell Latitude D600 must be enabled in two places. Wi-Fi must be enabled in the BIOS, and must be turned on using the toggled Function key. In addition, the correct drivers for the Wi-Fi adaptor must be installed. When the Windows drivers are installed, the Dell Wi-Fi connection utility is also installed. The drivers and Wi-Fi utility are available for download at the Dell Drivers and Downloads website.
