    That was it! The Dell Drivers and Utilities CD worked. I didnt know I had to use that too. BTW it was the Broadcom 4401 driver that worked for me.

XP doesnt install the right device drivers for the NIC card (LAN card) if you have the origianl Device utilities disk, you can insert it and find those drivers (they will be checked) if no disk, use another pc and go to support.dell.com and enter the tag# locate the networking device drivers and its going to be a Broadcom 47xx driver. if not that try others till it works.

If your running xp, make sure the netowrk card is not disabled, make sure you rnot using a cross over cable. use the cable you got with the routers. Try reinstalling the network card, goto dell support andenter you model to get the drivers.

1 thing to check. goto start ,control panel.
double click on netowrk conections.
right click on the main conection witch is the card in your pc, goto properties. andin the list internet protocol (tcp/ip) click this. and pres properties.

make sure in here obtain ip addres is automatically. and obtain dns is auto too.

Try this let me know how you get on.

I have a Linksys for my wireless router and it is 2.4 GHz-802.11b I have no idea how to hook it up. so if anyone can help please do thank you


Hook up the netowrk cable to the Internet/WAN port on the router. The take a network cable and connect it to a port on the router , the other end into your NIC card on your computer. Restart all units and you should be able to get online.

Bought a new computer with vista instead of XP and cannot connect to internet via the ethernet line from my cable modem. what is the secret? Usually plugging it in is enough when I have moved or changed...


Yes! plugging it in on the Ethernet cable on the modem to the computer should get you online. If your not able to get online, you may want to check the following:

1. Make sure that the Ethernet adapter on the computer is enabled. If you can't find the Local Area Connection icon in your Network connections (control panel\network and sharing center), check if the network adapter is properly installed.

2. Some cable service providers require the MAC/Physical address of the Computer to get it online through the modem. If the old computer is working with the modem, you may want to contact your ISP and ask their assistance in getting you online using your new computer.
