I used Everest Ultimate to scan the system...
And discovered that the system had Intel PRO 100 VE based LAN settings/parts...I dunno? :lol:
I went to downloads.intel site and literally grabbed the full drivers pack for that setup, for my XP Media system.
TA-DAAA!!!! Ethernet is back and all is sweet.
(Hope this helps anyone else!)

The ethernet controller is a hardware device either as part of the motherboard -where you will have an RJ45 connector visible to you at the outside of the case -or as a Network Interface Card (NIC) which would be installed as a PCI card which has it's own RJ45 connector.
If yours is a driver problem you will need to specify which brand/model computer or NIC you have for a link to that manufacturer to download drivers from that site. If you encounter problems or have more specific information please post again here. Steve Medley

I need an ethernet controller driver for my dell dimension 4600 desktop


Well that is a problem. You can go to "support.dell.com" to download the drivers, however since you can't connect to the internet you will need to use a friends computer and download it.

Im trying to establish an internet connection (not wireless)


You will need to open control panel and go to device manager. There look for network controller and see if there is an Ethernet controller listed. If you don't have one listed you will have to install one or the driver for it if the Ethernet is on the motherboard. If you do have one, then right click on it and check properties to see if it reports that it's installed and working properly. If it is then you may have a bad connecting in the cable and not a problem with the computer. You should be using a BLUE Ethernet cable from your router or modem to get on the Internet.
