I got a HPNA version of the gateway device. I installed windows ME on it and got everything working. I got a Intel Pro/100 SP Combo adapter (Modem and Ethernet) and installed it. I connected the wire that was connected to the HPNA to the modem slot on the ether combo card. There is also a 14 pin male connector on the card and I am about 99.9% sure that it is for the ethernet, so the question is where do I get the cable to plug this 14 pin connector to the free 4 pin connector on the motherboard under the ethernet jack (if that is what is supposed to be connected) With out this cable I was able to install the adapter but fail to get a link light on my switch (tried multiple cables and ports, it is definitly the machine). Where can I get one of these cables and do u think it will fix my problem?
There are pins on the mini-pci socket that go to the RG45 ethernet plug, try a search in this section as a couple years back I believe I posted the exact pins; Have you tried a ethernet connection to the GCT after installing the new card? The mini-pci specs include lines for the eithernet so there is a possibility that you may not need a jumper.....
I also have a hpna version. I bought a mini-pci nic in hopes that it would work. It looks like a wire is needed to connect the card to the jack. I made a phone call to Dell's parts divison, just a few weeks ago, and asked them for a 4-pin to 14-pin mini-pci ethernet cable for an Inspirion 4000 laptop. Although I didn't buy it yet, they do have them in stock. They cost $15.
I then called Gateway and they told me that they don't carry those types of parts and that I was out of luck.
Back in 2001, you posted the pinout for you mini-pci card and you went on to say how you yourself called up Dell and ordered the cable. You said that it "works like a charm". Either you have amnesia or I'm totally lost.
