I think I am stuck. If I can't get on line with the linux side of the latitude could changing something from the windows side do anything? The win 7 is connected.

I am going to try to do this
Reset the rfkill status in the BIOS / UEFI
1.3.2. You can try the following procedure, which can reset the rfkill status on some laptops, thus removing the wireless "hard block":

- power off the laptop;
- remove the power cord and the battery;
- press and hold the power button for 30 seconds;
- put the battery back in place;
- connect the power cord;
- boot your Linux Mint or Ubuntu again.

result
It freaked out the dell laptop and it wanted to do a bunch of tests but when I said no it booted normally but no fix

Final stab - if you only plug the laptop in does it make any difference?
Otherwise I give up.

Enable IPV4(DHCP) in LM.

Don't change any Windows settings.

192.168.0.1 would be an internal ip address and no, you do not need internet connectivity for that page to work, you only need network connectivity.
The fact that it still says command not found suggests dhcpcd was not installed.

I'm not sure what you mean by
Quote:
Reset the rfkill status in the BIOS / UEFI
. As I said before, a "hard block" is due to a physical switch disabling your internet. For instance, on my laptop fn+f2 enables/disables this. Also, as I mentioned before, this should only affect wireless and not ethernet.

Since dhclient is not giving a "command not found" I'm guessing this is your default dhcp utility. Please try
Code:
 dhclient eth0 -vv
to give some more info on why it is failing.

Also, you might try running
Code:
sudo systemctl start dhclient@eth0.service
sudo systemctl enable dhclient@eth0.service
before running dhclient

[I] pressed fn and f2 at the same time and nothing happened and still not connected.

Sigh...
I am getting pretty tired.. I will take a break and work on enabling IPV4(DHCP) as Jeremy suggested but I have to find it again first.

I really appreciate your effort. You two have been awesome and I do know I can wipe out linux and reinstall if nothing else works.
