Dell 4700 Computer Integrated NIC Problem

I have a Dell 4700 Computer with an integrated Intel PRO/100 VE network card. My OS is Windows XP Home Edition.

When I plug my ethernet cable into the port, the connection is not detected. I installed a Linksys LNE100TX NIC card into my PC, left the ethernet cable plugged into the integrated Intel PRO/100, and then the network was detected on the Intel PRO/100.

I removed the LNE100TX NIC and the network was no longer detected. I reinstalled the LNE100TX NIC card and the network was again detected when connected to the integrated Intel PRO/100. I disabled the Linksys LNE100TX NIC, uninstalled the driver, powered down my PC and removed the Intel LNE100TX NIC from my PC. Powered it backup and the integrated NIC (Intel PRO/100) still detected my network. Great problem solved! NO!

I powered the PC back down and installed a sound card in the slot that the LNE100TX NIC was installed. Powered my PC backup and now no network connection detected again by the integrated Intel PRO/100 NIC. I powered my PC back down removed the sound card and reinstalled the Linksys NIC. Powered up, now the ethernet connection is only recognized when it is plugged into the Linksys card. The integrated PRO/100 won't recognize the connection at all.

If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. I would like to get my PCI slot back so that I can install a sound card.

Thanks, in advance for your help.

Check for the pins inside the integrated NIC to check if the pins are bent / disfigured. Does not look like the additional card is making any different, looks more like a moving NIC cable is makin the difference.

Lemme know if this helped!

I lost my lan driver

The Dell E210882 motherboard has been used in the Dell Dimension 3000. Thus you can try the Dell site for the XP driver. Start here: and expand the section for network drivers.

If you have a different OS, try the Intel site since the onboard LAN is the Intel Pro/100 VE hardware. The Intel generic drivers are here: . Use the drop-down menus to select your OS and drivers if you want to shrink the list below (left-hand side).

If the on-board LAN has failed (it happens), get a PCI ethernet card. Then disable the on-board LAN in the BIOS. Usually that can be accessed by pressing Esc, F1, F2 or F10 on startup. There should be a splash screen telling you which key to press. If you get to the Windows login or Start Screen try again.

I hope this helps.

    Reinstalled Windows XP no ethernet card


    It seems that after re-installing windows you have missed the Driver installation for your hardware. If you have a disk (which reads Drivers and Utilities) that came with your computer, You can insert it in your CD Driver and select the Driver for Network adapter. If you do not have a disc, you can always visit the Dell's support site and Get the drivers suitable for your hardware by selecting the model or Entering the Service Tag of your Dell computer.

    For your convenience I am providing below the link for Drivers for Dimension 4700 Desktop PC as you have mentioned.

    Wireless internet problem


    I think your Operating System (OS) software installed after formatting does not have drivers for the wireless network card.

    You did not provide any clues about the OS and the Network (Model/Brand) installed.

    Dell Inspiron 6000 did ship with Windows XP as the Default OS and Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card or Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG, 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Cards as options

    First, check the Original System Configuration to find out the built specification of the Inspiron 6000.
    Enter you system tag. Click on the Original System Configuration Tab. Check the factory built specification and note the Wireless Card installed from the factory. If you have not changed or upgraded the Wireless Card, download and install the drivers from the list below.

    Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card Drivers
    Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG / 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Card Drivers

    I am almost sure you will need drivers for the Chipset, onboard network and video.
    Intel Mobile Chipset
    Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller Driver v.4.25
    Video (as above check the factory spec if you ordered the ATI MobilityRadeon X300)
    Intel Graphics Video (onboard) Driver v.
    ATI MobilityRadeon X300 Driver v.8.162-050803a2-025823C

    Let me know how you get on.
