On Dell computers it is rare that the XP install disk properly reinstalls your Network Card drivers. If you have the Device Drivers CD that came with your dell (usually a blue or gray disk) you can install the drivers (usually a Broadcom or Intel NIC /LAN or Network Interface driver) then your PC can "see" internet connections. The CD will show you all the drivers you can install with a check mark next to each that apply to your system.

If you do not have the CDROM, go to support.dell.com on another PC and enter your system tag# (on the bottom or back) and look in "Network" and find the driver there. There are a few options so you might need to try several drivers till you find the one that works. 90% of Dell pc's come with Broadcom so try that first. save the driver to a disk or flash drive and run it on the PC in question.

You also will likely need drivers for the video card and chipset as well.

Internet connection problem


If you reinstall windows using System Recovery Disk then you do not need to worry about anything, it will
bring your computer back to the factory settings. However, if you use Windows DVD to reinstall the system then you need to install all the drivers manually.
If your drivers are missing then download it form your manufacturers website.

If you are using win XP

Hello,

Check for Highjackers, Malware, Viruses, or anything else that could have screwed with the OS. Sounds to me you had something wrong with your computer before SP3 was added. Personally if it was me I would back up all my data to a CD or thumb drive and wipe the computer clean and start over. You could try System Restore and remove SP3 but that only bandaids the issue.

Have a good one.

Change the calbe from the router to the dsl modem. Make sure you check labels on the rear of these devices to make sure the connections go where indicated. Is there and ethernet light on your modem. If that is on then the connection is made. Also check if the DSL modem works directly connected to the pc.
