Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Dial up self connecting

I have a dell dimension 4600... windows xp... SP2... modem = Conexant HSFi V.9x 56k DF PCI...

Problem = connection pops up every now and then (twice a day perhaps) and just connects by itself... I'll go out and come back & it's been connected for a couple of hours. Have resorted to unplugging line from wall at night & when I'm out and about. Running Avast Antivirus V4.8 Home Edition, it doesnt seem to know anyhtings wrong. Am not sure whether it's programs trying to auto update or some virus etc...

Please advise ;-)

I had to reload my operating system. But i am not sure f the ethernet driver i need for my dell 4600 dimension


HERE is the driver for your Ethernet card directly from dell. This one is for windows XP. go HERE if you have a different Operating System ans select the correct one. After you select your operating system it should be the only download with the description of "driver" on the list under the networking section.

NO PWER TO THE MODEM, TRIED UNPLUGGING AND REPLUGGING, WILL NOT TURN ON. OLD DELL-2000, DESK TOP.I THINK 4800 OR 4500. IS IT A FUSE OR COUL DIT JUST BE DEAD. NO INTERNET AT MY ZIP CODE, ONLY USED FOR GAMES...


most likely the modem is dead, I think your refering to the 56k softmodem (dial up) if so you can replace that for around $5 - $15 at most computer repair stores, even walmart may carry them im not to sure.

What modem is needed for windows xp dial up connection


You can use virtually any PCI-modem card for your computer. The Dell Dimension 2400 has 3 PCI slots and unless you have some fancy CPU cooler that takes up all the space inside the machine, any card will fit.

Take a look at these to get an idea.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Dell Dimension 4700 - Driver Reset


1st you need to download or install all the drivers for your Dell computer. Try to use the drivers/utilities disks first. Once you can get online, go to Dell.com and look up your model 4700 and download all the missing drivers. Your Linksys Router is not a modem. The Linksys has the modem connected to it for wireless connections.

    This problem happens usually when Windows service pack 2 has a conflict with 3rd party software like T.V. Media or service pack 3 conflicts with prior installation of SP2.

    If this is from SP2 Use recovery console to remove SP2
