Re: Long Sign in time????

It may be possible to overcome the problem if you need wifi. However, you might consider changing the card. Dell use a number of different wireless cards for the Inspiron 1700.

I run without swap on a laptop with plenty of RAM, and put swap on a ...

MX Cleanup for MX 17 only?
