Hi, This modem can be used via one of two ports: ethernet port (network port) or USB port If your computer has an ethernet port, it is perferable that you connect through this as you will have better performance. If you don't then you can get an ethernet card installed inside the CPU. If it's not possible to connect via this connection and you have to use the USB, then you will need drivers. This website gives you full instructions on how to use this particular modem and also gives you the USB drivers if needed. Good luck! Lolita

My lan drivers disappeared after formatting optiplex GX260. What do i do?

You'll need to access Dell's Drivers and Downloads page from another computer that has internet access, and supply the Service Tag (or other method of choice) information to obtain a list of drivers for your GX260. Assuming you're using the original LAN card, you'll have to download and install the required driver to restore network functionality from the Dell site (if other than a GX260 LAN card, you'll have to go to the LAN card manufacturer's site for drivers).

There may be more than one LAN driver from which to choose. If unsure which version you have - you'll need to get all of them and install them one at a time until you find the one needed by your machine.

Please rate this reply if it was helpful to you - good luck!
