Default Win 8 stopped internet/ is this a slot for SIM? - 04-01-2012, 10:54 AM

Heya guys and gals --

I am running Win 8 on my Dup and suddenly my internet has stopped working. It's acting as thought the receiver for it is totally dead. I cannot figure out how to reinstall it or what? I noticed the on and off switch on the function keys, but it's definitely on. Any ideas?

Also, I have opened it up to look at something and saw what LOOKED like a slot for a SIM card...does this look right?

Anyway, more concerned about getting the basic internet back to working order. If anyone has seen this on their DUO, I'd love to see if it's common.

Got the internet back, the device had safetys on I guess to turn off my internet in case it ran out of power, which it did. I turned off the ability to turn off the internet. Back in, about that SIM card...

the duo's design is prepared for 3G, but dell didn't put the hardware inside
So it's a no go
