Re: CAN'T CONNECT TO ISP USING ETHERNET NETWORK PORT...
Make sure the cable is in the correct place. (8 ping plug-little bigger that the phone plug.)
1). start>>control panel>>system>device manager.
make sure there is not "red X" or yellow!" ont he network card.
if that is OK. right click on "my network place" on the desktop>>local area connection>> right click on properties again.
you will see the network card name, and select TCP/IP under the " This connection use the following item" box. Click on properties.
make sure the " Obtain the IP address automatically and the "Obtain DNS address automatically" are check.
shunt down the computer
wait 2 minutes, restart the machine.
open the Internet Browser after the machine finished loading.

Check that all drivers are installed and working in device manager as when I reinstalled Windows not all of the drivers installed and I had to do it manually. These drivers were the ones that give you access to the internet. These were network adapters and IDE ATA /ATAPI controllers.
Use Network preferences to verify your TCP/IP settings and that Built-in Ethernet is your primary network interface.
Follow these steps if you are using Mac OS X v10.5:
From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
From the View menu, choose Network
Be sure that "Built-in Ethernet" has not the status Inactive listed below the entry in the list of network ports.
Make sure Built-in Ethernet is the selected, or primary, network
interface: Click the action button (gear icon) below the list of
network port and choose "Set Service Order...".Services can be dragged
to change order. Services are listed with descending priority.
Select a network port in the list of port to configure it.
Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.dell.com
Enter 'Dimension 4700' and select your computer.
Select your Operating System.
Select the network device-driver, and download it (to a USB memory-stick, or to disk, followed by burning it to a CD-recordable, and carry the media to your non-connected computer.
Connect the power supply.
connect the ethernet cable from your router (or the box that your isp gave you to get the internet connection) to the port labeled "Uplink" on the hub.
Connect the ethernet cable from your computer or another device to be connected to any of the ports 1 to 4. Do not use port 5 (that port is used to "chain" another hub)
Please be aware that a network hub is basically a very simple device that will not assign an internal ip number to your devices or computer, and if you have two or more devices or computers, you do need that either your "modem" (the device that is installed by your isp) is capable of handling more than one computer, or you will also need something to act as a router (your computer can do it, but you will need to know how to set up that).
Hope it helps
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 i.e.:support.dell.com and Get the drivers suitable for your hardware by selecting the model or Entering the Service Tag of your Dell computer.
it easy plug your big plug rg 45 cable from the 2010 into your port 1 on your router then buy more rg45 cable from comp store plug it into port 2 then into comp 1 plug another one into port 3 on your router and plug it into other comp. everything should work xp will pick up and install anything needed. have fun surfing
When dealing with a router there are multiple IP address scenarios, on the internet service provider's (ISP) side you can have either a static or dynamic IP address. I believe most routers by default are set to accept a dynamic IP address from the ISP. Where the ISP permits the router can also assign IP addresses to each device that attaches to it allowing a single ISP connection to be shared by multiple computers. This is also generally the default for routers purchased for home use and the wireless adapters also accept the dynamic IP assignment from the Router. With the logical discussion out of the way I believe you wish to discuss the physical connections to be established. Again this is a generic discussion not knowing your specific environment. port types - I will refer to phone ports (technically RJ-11 either two or 4 wires (these cables plug snugly into phone jacks and modem connectors) and ethernet ports (technically RJ-45 which are 8 wires and to big to fit in phone and modem ports) First you have a connection provided by the ISP for DSL this is your phone line where filters are attached to your voice phones and an unfiltered phone connection goes into the DSL modem's phone port often with an ethernet port. If you have cable generally the cable company provides a connection to a cable modem which has an ethernet or other port to connect to your system. The ethernet port generally connects to the wan port (generally separate) of your wrt54g router with an ethernet cable. Computers can be attached to the wrt54g router using the 4 ethernet ports in a group provided they have an ethernet port too. Wireless cards connect to the wrt54g router through radio waves and with antennas on the router and often internal to the wireless adapter (often embedded in a notebook computer today). These details are enclosed with your ISP's instructions and the Linksys router instructions often with pictures to help the explanation.
