The Dell TrueMobile 1180 WLAN PC Card device is utilized with the Dell TrueMobile solution. This solution is capable of accessing WLANs (wireless local area networks) and allowing sharing of local files and printers with users on the same network. It is likewise capable of enabling sharing of Internet connection and roaming wire-free around a home or office setup. This robust WLAN solution is scalable in order that new users may be added and new network functions may be activated as networking requirements rise. The Dell TrueMobile 1180 WLAN PC Card device uses the 2.4 GHz (IEEE Draft Std 802.11g, IEEE 802.11b) frequency band. This device uses the DSSS or Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum modulation technique that employs the DBPSK for low transmission rates, DQPSK for standard transmission rates and CCK for high – medium transmission rates. It likewise uses the OFDM or Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing that employs _, 2/3 and _ the convolutional coding rates for forward error correction, and 52 subcarriers with 64 QAM, 16 QAM, and BPSK.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
With the aid of the Dell TrueMobile 1180 WLAN PC Card device, a notebook computer that is TrueMobile enabled can establish a network connection effortlessly. Upon boot up, the notebook computer will detect particular WLANs that are within a specific range. Prior to connecting to WLANs however, users should first configure profiles for every network. The access point that interacts with the notebook computer is preassigned an SSID (network name) that can be recognized by the notebook upon boot up. In the event that users are configuring a new WLAN (wireless area network), they are recommended to utilize any character string coming from the network key. On the other hand, if users are try to connect to an existing network that is WEP enabled, they should then acquire a network key via the AP installer. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Dell TrueMobile 1180 WLAN PC Card errors before installing any driver updates.
