Wireless Card

The Latitude 110L was shipped with one of four possible wireless cards. I was lucky and had an Intel Corporation 82562ET/EZ/GT/GZ. It works right out of the box, no drivers needed to be installed. A friend of mine bought a latitude 110L, and the wireless card that it came with was so incompatible that he never could get it to work and ended up buying the same card that I had on ebay.

I used OSx86 tools to determine the model number of my wireless controller.



Wired Ethernet


The wired ethernet is a PRO/100 VE. The iPC 10.5.6 installation disk has a PRO/100 VE kext that works with it.



Clamshell Display Fix


Installing the Clamshell Display Fix will make it so your Latitude will sleep when the laptop is closed and its little green light will pulse, just like a real Mac.



Random Kernel Panic on start-up


If you are having occasional kernel panics on start-up, use OSx86 Tools, run all of the system maintenance tasks that it has and re-start. It also helps to go into the bios and set the Fast Boot to through (thank you Jonas)

What model is your Dell? I have successfully installed iPC 10.5.6 on a GX280.

When you say you are starting off the DVD, do you mean that you are about to install off the DVD for the first time or have you already installed the OS?
