    i have this same problem and have even gone to the dell site and dled the ethernet drivers they have posted there,burned them to disc via laptop,installed and still nothing.i am thinking it must be a mistake on dell's part in posting the wrong drivers(the drivers that are posted are for a 3com nic).i bought the system second-hand and for some reason the driver disc the guy gave me which said optiplex drivers on it turned out to be for the gx320-745 models.so now i have no idea what to do or how to get my internet back up on the desktop.please help if you can.

The yellow signs indicate the device driver is bad. Right click on the device and click on update driver...that should do it..if you have any questions let me know.

Rate it don't rate it I don't care :)..

    ok i got you sorry about that..changing the ethernet card will work, I was just hoping we could do it with just driver update..unfortunately unless you still have the disk with all the drivers on it when you got your pc then replacing the card is the only choice..good luck

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!

I want to download the ethernet driver


Here is a link to the network drivers for the GX260. There are 3 options for ethernet drivers, one by Dell and two by Intel. You will need to try each to see which one works.

I have decided to replace my network card on my optiplex gx260, due to yellow ? & inability to connect to the internet. went through all the driver search business without sucess. opening the box, I don't...


The ethernet port is integrated on your unit. You should just have to install the new card (and drivers) and plug it in. You can however go into the device manager and disable the onboard if you wish but it shouldn't be necessary.

Missing Drives for Dell Optiplex GX260 PC Desktop Problem


if you don't have the cd with the drivers and utilities, then you can download the drivers online with another computer. (you will need a thumb drive or cd to save it on) you will also need to make sure you know what brand of ethernet card your computer came with. once you get that ethernet card working, you can get online and download the remaining drivers, possibly through windows update. be sure to select custom update, not express, so it will search for the hardware drivers for you.
