Power Requirement for Wireless Networking

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q2h1bmtpbnM=?=, Oct 10, 2005.

  1. My wireless internet access does not work when I am running on battery power,
    however, it does work when I'm using the power supply. I have a new Dell
    Inspiron 6000 with XP and Centrino. Why is this? Is there something I can
    adjust so that it will work under battery power? What's the point of having
    a notebook computer if you have to use the power cord?

    Turn off power save mode in the wireless card properties.

  3. Thanks. I had to turn it up to high.

    Now, how do I keep the screen from dimming when I unplug the power?

    Look for your power settings and change the battery profile to not dim the
    display.
