Please update your system specs. The link is in my signature.

Have you installed or removed any applications? Have you installed any Windows updates?

Have you installed any recent Windows updates? Where did you get the drivers for your hardware?

The Dell Latitude D600 only has XP drivers. Did you install XP drivers in compatibility mode? What Linksys model do you own, and did you install Windows 7 drivers for it?

What is the specific error message? Also, are you running a beta, RC, or RTM/retail version of Windows 7? Did you do an in-place upgrade, or was this a clean install? If it was an upgrade, what was the previous OS? Have you installed or removed any applications recently?

To clarify: you did a clean install and you haven't added or removed any applications between the time things worked and when things stopped working?

Linksys doesn't provide a Windows 7 driver for that card.
