I have a Dell Inspiron 600m with a built in WIFI card. My router is D Link. The wireless connection only seems to work if my computer is plugged into power source, IE, the WIFI does not work when I am using the laptop on battery alone. Does anyone know why this may be?

Power saving mode? What the hell would be the point of that? I doubt that they would design it so that
you CAN'T use wireless when you need it the most! If you're plugged into AC power, you might as well use
wired! Only having wireless when you're plugged in completly negates the usefulness of wireless...
Well G brace yourself coz yes there is such a setting in Windows that turns the device off to save power.
Justin it could be that you also have the power management enabled...
Heres how to disable the power management for network devices:
Go to Control Panel>Sytem
Under the Hardware Tab select Device manager...
In the Device Manager, go down to Network Adapters and expand the category...you should see a list of network devices present
Right Click on the Networking controller that you use...and go to properties
Under Properties select the Power Management Tab
Deselct the option to "Allow the computer to turn off device to save power"
Click OK and that should do the trick.
