Re: no ethernet controller in device manager
You need to flash the cmos.. To do this open it up and look for a switch inside the system., press for 5 seconds and release.
If you cant find the switch or there isnt one, then locate the battery on the board (its a big watch battery) pry it off, hold the power button down for 1 minute, the press it 5 times, replace the battery.
NB: UNPLUG THE SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING THE ABOVE. Once this is done follow the onscreen instructions to enter the bios or setup, load optimised defaults then save and exit. Your device will now show up in the device manager.

hi your problem is that you should set the connection to internet Dell Dimension 4550 (Pentium 4 2.66GHz, 256MB RAM, 60GB HDD, XP Home) first you need to go to: control panel>system>device manager>check if appears the ethernet car if it does then. go to control panel>network conection>properties>select tcp/ip go to properties check and make sure the option of automatic ip and the automatic dns select it and you are ready....
Dell Dimension 4550 Drivers From the above link you can download the required drivers. There are two drivers available for Broadcom and Intel. I suggested try the Intel Drivers (as your system may be having the Intel based Ethernet) To PCI communication Controller (Modem) you have to install the Modem Drivers Trt Eicon (recommended) Or broadcom conaxant etc
Purchase a USB memory-stick.
On another computer with Internet access, access: http://support.dell.com and select "Downloads and Drivers". Select "Dimension". Select "4550".
Select "Network Adapters". Download the device-driver, copying it to the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and "install" the device-driver.
1. Click on Start, go to Settings and then Control Panel. 2. Click on System, go to Hardware and then Device Manager. 3. Click the (+) sign on Network Adapters and select the adapter. 4. Double click on it and read the Device Status.

Does the ethernet card have a yellow or red checkmark. If its yellow, select the device and then select turn it on. If it's red, right click on it and select uninstall. Rebbot Windows and allow it to find the card or at least provide an error.
xp will have basic drivers..go to the control panel, device manager, and have the system look at the hardware again( at top of the panel, there is an option for action) click on any of the items in the panel, and then Action, Scan for hardware changes..follow those instructions..it may ask for the drivers and utilities disk in that process..
