Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

Internet connectivity issues with Dell 2350

I've recently been given a Dell Dimension 2350 desktop to wipe it, as it was previously virus-laden and just completely unusable. The wipe went without incident, I installed a copy of Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3, and all of a sudden I cannot access the internet to get all of the Windows updates that I need, the drivers and everything. Once I have internet connectivity, I know what to do.

    I don't know the exact ethernet driver to be honest, but no I absolutely dont have a internet icon in my taskbar

    Same problem, same model, integrated NIC. I've gotten the driver from dell's website as well as the broadcom site. No conflicts in device manager, it just keeps trying to acquire a network address indefinitely.

    I'm starting to think the port is just bad now. any other ideas?

If you go to the Dell website and put in the service tag, Dell will tell you exactly what ethernet driver you need. If you don't have access to another PC (you wouldn't be here asking - ha ha) you could simply buy another network card and install it, then disable the existing one in the device manager.

Please post with the results of your efforts, this is not too difficult to solve. Good luck.

    I believe your driver would be

    Broadcom 4401 integrated NIC V3.63.AO3

    Did you try to update like I explained

The USB connection does not normally have anything to do with the internet. You can try updating all your drivers with a driver update program, or look for them manually on manufacturer's websites.
Does the USB device show an error in the Device Manager?

All drivers are installed properly and internet will NOT WORK!!

Here is a utility that will correct corrupt network settings in XP, download it, run and then it will ask to restart the computer.

Also, verify that your Win OS or 3rd party firewall is not blocking the internet.

Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
