Re: network adapter prolem
I need more info before I can help much. Try this if possible.
is the network adapter park of the motherboard or is a separate PCI card?
If you can remove the card, I would remove it and restart the pc. Then
turn off the computer and reinsert the card. Power the PC back up and
see if windows even detects a device added. If it does not, then the
card may be toast.

Check the Device Manager in the Control Panel and see if the drivers are loaded. Click Start/Control Panel and look for System or System and Performance. Open it and look for Device Manager. Open the Device Manager and check the Network Adapters.
Download and Install Network Adapters.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "EmachineSupport" or "Gateway Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Network Adapter drivers.
This dell should already have a network adapter already on it, there is a port on the back of the machine that looks like a BIG phone jack next to your USB and sound plugs.
If you are unable to get it to work even after it has been plugged into that jack then I would check to make sure that windows has the drivers installed to actually run the device. Go back into device manager and make sure that the yellow question mark where other devices is does not show a networking adapter, if it does it means the driver is not installed.
Also you may need to go into your bios (restart the computer and hit f2) and make sure the network adapter is enabled. usually under integrated peripherals
If nothing is showing in device manager it will be the card it self and most times they are part of motherboard it self. Easy way to see would be is too look and see is it metal square peace on motherboard or is it like a card that plugs in the board. You can install another one just make sure you check what kinda PCI or PCIE card it can take. Most can take PCI if any empty. Usually white, blue or sometimes black elongated space on keyboard. If you go to google and click on images and search for PCI slot it will show you. Hope this helps.
Hi, If your son' s computer has a LAN port, then install the LAN driver.
LAN port is different from modem. Modem is used for dial-up connection
while LAN uses broadband or dsl connection. If you do not know where or
how to find the LAN driver, post the manufacturer and model name of
your LAN or the motherboard. You can also find it by right clicking the
My Computer icon->Manage->Device Manager. On the right side,
Expand the Network Adapter. You will then find the software that you
are going to reinstall. Another thing is to try to update the driver if
it works or not. Here are the steps :
Right click My Computer icon.
A box will appear (Computer Management), Click Device Manager
On the right side, Click and expand Network Adapters
Right click the software, click update driver.
Wait 'til it finds the necessary software.
If it does, then your finished installing the Network
Adapter driver. If it says it cannot find the necessary software, you
have to manually install it.
IF NOT yet installed, copy the Network Adapter software and paste it in google to find your Network Adapter installer.
I hope this fix your problem. Drop me a comment again if you encounter some problems, ok? I will assist you.
I will assume that your broadcom adapter is not showing up under Device Manager > Network Adapters. It will happen if the driver is not properly installed.
Look for "Other Devices" under Device Manager. Usually, it will show as Network Controller or Ethernet Controller. Right click that and select update driver. Make sure that you have the driver or file for that adapter. Once the driver is properly installed, it will be under Network Adapter with the correct name.
assuming it's XP,right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down list for network adapters, if its there click the '+' sign, then right click on the network adapter and select uninstall.
Restart pc and the network card will be found and the driver automatically installed.
It should now be in network connections, if not reply back
If you right-click the "unknown" device and select Update Driver, you can force windows to search for the correct driver, and then put in the CD or floppy that came with the network adapter, and tell Windows to look on that CD or floppy. If the installation process didn't work, this might.
The tech was incorrect - your network adapter is just not recognized by the system. If you install the correct drivers for your particular network adapter it should be recognized, which should then solve your problem. Search the Gateway website for network drivers for your particular desktop, and if the network adapter was added (not built into the computer) then determine the manufacturer and model of your network adapter, then search the manufacturer's website for the correct drivers.
Even easier, if you still have the original disks that came with your computer and/or network adapter, they should include the correct drivers.
