If you don't have the Driver disk the Dell site has them for download, use the service tag to find the specific ones. Put the files onto a USB key and run them on the reloaded PC to unpack them to the HDD. Do them in this order. Chipset, Graphics, Network, Audio. Do not install them without rebooting each time.
You got drivers on dvd. find the dvd, and usually it's the one with dell logo. you have to install Drivers from that and your dell will Fly.

Most likely, it's not due to the computer, it's due to bandwidth. Either you're direct connection to the internet, or the bandwidth you pay for from your internet service provider...
1.) So, if you're connected wirelessly, try connecting directly with a CAT5(or 5E, or 6) ethernet cable, that will speed your connection up A LOT.
2.) If you ARE connected by cable, check your download/upload limits set by your internet service provider. If you have only dial-up, it probably won't be fast enough. You'd need at least a DSL or ADSL connection, cable broadband is best.
Hope that helps!
HI, Check in device manager to check if there is any question mark next to Ethernet controller . if there is then you would have to install the network card driver. For your reference attaching i picture how it would look like
You can use the following link to download the drivers for the Ethernet controller. Note: You would have to select the correct model and operating system for which you need the drivers.
You have to installl sound drivers, mainboard chipset drivers for your computer.
Windows XP usually recognise some motherboards. In your case, you must do it manually.
Search on internet for your motherboard drivers
your dsl provide you with filters and these filters must be install on all the phone jacks then the phone connects to that and there is one that has two opens in the filter this one has to be with the modem installe the same way except the phone goes to the phone side and the modem has (assuming your not using comcast that is totally different setup) there is no filter for comcast...
if all filters are installed properly then check the phone and the line that connects them sometimes a phone has 4 pins in them and the regular phone line has 2 pins in the center make sure you are using a 2 oin phone line after you check the phone base to see which one it requires (for comcast this could be your problem)
after re-installl the XP u should install the drivers for audio ,video,etc. those drivers are in motherboard cd,it is provoided to u when u buying the PC.check for the motherboard cd for your computer or try to know ur motherboard model and serch through internet.
What you need to do is install your ethernet card first. The card usually comes with a disc with the drivers and utility. Make sure you get that done to get it out of the way. Next you need to make sure the router is connected properly. If you have the installation guide for the router, check the lights. If it's properly connected, there should at least two green lights and one amber. The amber light should indicate theat you have no internet connection yet. You may want to check the proceedure about accessing the router. Usually typing the homeportal in the address bar on Internet Explorer. If you don't have the installlation guide for the router, download it under support at the manufacturer's website. The important thing to keep in mind is to make sure the ethernet card is installed properly meaning the drivers and utility(if any) are installed, and all it is is that it just has a red X on it telling me i don't have internet connection. From there, all you need to focus on is the router installation(physical), then follow the proceedure to access your router. Well i hope you fix it.
