Question about Insignia D300a PC Desktop

1 Answer

Help!! i just hooked a hub up from two of my computers, and my insignia shows a problem with the ethernet controller driver. It shows that it is not installed (code 28) and I cannot find it when I search for it. I cannot connect to the internet from that computer, and I do not have any cd's. I bought the computer secondhand. Can anyone help?

Re: help!!

If you physically know that the card is there, then you will have to look at the network card and look at the manufacturers name on the chip on top of the card. You can then either post it back here or search yourself on the net for a driver. Although just make sure it is enabled, Go into hardware, then device manager in my computer properties or control panel and look down the list at 'network adapters'. Click the '+' sign adn check that your wreless adapter has not got a yellow!(exclamation mark) next to it, if so it's a driver error.

Ethernet Controller is missing

You are unable to use the Ethernet, VGA etc. because you have not installed the drivers for the same.

You might have received a Drivers CD(it will read "Drivers and Utilities") which will be in blue color, when you got the computer from Dell.
In case if you haven't received it you can contact Dell on 1-800-624-9897 and request for a Driver CD. I guess this Dimension model is @ End of Life (I mean no more produced by dell) you might have to download the drivers from Dell's support site ( you will have to get it downloaded on a different computer and copy on a CD or a Flash drive.

Once you got all the drivers. First extract them in a separate folder

Go to Device manager
Right click on the Ethernet controller (where you see a yellow exclamation)
Click update drivers
Show the path where you have the driver files

It sound like your USB Ports is the problem. Go to the Hardware manager delete the USB Ports and then shutdown and power back up.
The system then should reinstall the USB Ports and associated drivers. If not the USB Ports were probably fried by the power outage.

How to add Wirless & Ethernet connections?

The only difference in using a wireless hub is that it will go between your router and your computer. The advantage is you can take your computer anywhere within range and connect using your computers wireless card (if you have one).
You won't need any more equipment or memory and most wireless hubs come with instructions. If they didn't give them to you, just Google the manufacturer and model of the hub and you should be able to find them easily.
After you've set up the wireless hub (which you can still connect to via your ethernet cable). your computer should notify you of wireless networks available. You have a utility to set this up within the control panel.
Let me know if this helps
