Got home from work, this afternoon, and decided to swap out the WLAN mini-card on my "new" Dell D630 ATG. I couldn't stand the blinking WIFI LED any longer -- yes, I tried all the tricks. It was 'all_blinking_all_the_time' or 'nothing' and I like the LED. I just cannot stand the blinking. I want it to be 'on_solid_all_the_time'. 8-)

As soon as I cracked this thing open -- which is super clean on the outside -- I was met with a rat's nest of cat hair, wound around the electronics & keyboard. OMG!!! I spent over an hour with a mohair brush, and 120 psi air compressor, removing the hairballs from this laptop's innards. The hair was stuck to, or wound around everything. It wasn't simply a matter of blowing it out.

Anyway, I removed the Intel Wireless Pro 3945abg WLAN card, and replaced it with a Dell Wireless 1390. No more blinking WIFI LED light. Yay!

Guess I'll throw the 3945 into my closet, and buy another 1390 on Ebay for my D620 -- the donor machine.

Here's the latest...

Got bored and installed the Linux 3.13-rc7 mainline kernel & X.Org 2.99.906+git drivers. Working fine, so far.

Oh, yeah. Can't forget to mention the blisteringly fast SanDisk SSD. Feels like a different machine, now. :D

Heh! I guess!?!?!

Truthfully, I don't even like 'green'.

Probably some sort of deep-seated psychological defect... :D

For the blinking LED issue I went with the 79p black insulation tape from Wickes.

Job done. :ugeek:
