Network Driver


Hello,

A network driver will just keep your computer to communicate with the internet and it has nothing to do with the speed and strength of your internet. For that, you need to contact your internet service provider.

If you want to optimize your computer's performance to its best though, you can download and install RadarSync. It is driver updater which can make your computer up to date. However, just like what I just indicated earlier that it won't affect the speed of your internet. RadarSync can do a lot of things that are automated and can keep your computer to automatically fix driver problems.

I hope this helps.

The network card (also the sound and video) is integrated onto the motherboard on this computer. You probably just need to install the drivers. You can download the drivers from Dell here. Also make sure the onboard network hardware is enabled in the computer's BIOS setup. (If you didn't use a restore set from the manufacturer and just install Windows, you almost always need to install the drivers for integrated hardware.)

I recently reinstalled Windows XP onto my computer and when I did it didnt recognize the driver for network adaptor. How do i get that adaptor driver?


Go to the Internet site for that adapter's manufacturer, and locate the drivers for that exact driver. Then download it and install it, and it should work fine.

Hi,

Make sure you have any appropiate software installed and that you are using the correct wireless authentication method (WEP/WPA ect...)

Also check to make sure there is not IP Conflict between your PC and another wireless device on the network.

You can also try assiging your PC a IP Address to use within the gateway address, or set it to obtain it automatically.

exact instructions to do this all depend on your operating system and the wireless connection utility used.

Hope this helps
