Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop

Ethernet card Can anyone tell if my Dell 4600 gigabit ethenet (gbn) card is compatible with my Dell Dimension 4550 (optiplex gx260)? I have two of them in my Dell 4600 and I need one in my Optiplex GX260. So I thought if they are interchangeable I wouldn't have to purchase one.

Ethernet on DELL 4550 with TP-link doesn't work


Hi there,

pinging 127.0.0.1 just tells you that your network card is operational and reacheable by your system.

I have a couple of suggestions - check them out and let me know what you found out.

  • Go to Network Connections / Local Area Connection / General Tab / Properties / Internet Protocol (TCPIP) (from the list)/ Properties. Are all settings set to "Obtain automatacally..."?
  • Is your operating system Windows XP Home or Professional (with Service Pack 2 installed)?
  • Have you installed the AirPort Utility software that came on the CD? (Check Start > All Programs > AirPort)
  • You have to have the software installed in order to setup the router.
  • What is your internet connection: Cable or DSL?
  • Take a look at this document "Designing AirPort Networks" which is also on the CD that came with the device. If you don't have it, here is the download (link). Go to page 25 and follow the instructions for PPPoE (if you have DSL service) or DHCP (if you have cable service).

Let me know how that works for you and if you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to look further into that if this did not work for you.

Can anyone tell me how to uninstall ethernet card in dell optiplex 320? I also need to know where to download and install the ethernet card. I can't go to ipconfig and see my ip address. The tech sup...


The ethernet card on the Dell Optiplex 320 is integrated into the motherboard and can not be physically removed. However, a new ethernet card could still be installed into one of the available PCI slots and can be purchased at just about any computer parts retailer.

Before you jump to replacing the card I would recommend trying a few things yourself to fix the card. Here are some suggestions:
One thing to try is disabling and then re-enabling the device through the device manager.
Another thing to try, go to the command prompt where you did the ipconfig, and type
IPCONFIG /release
then type
IPCONFIG /Renew

Those two commands have fixed many "dead" ethernet cards.
If those commands don't work and fix your problem I recommend giving this utility a try:
WinSock XP Fix
Does the computer recognize that there is an ethernet card in the system? Have you had any viruses or spyware/malware on the machine recently?

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.

Installing a sound card into my Optiplex GX260


Hi

OptiPlex GX260 can be Small Form-Factor, Small Desktop or Small Mini-Tower. Compatibility with PCline 5.1 PCI depends on the profile of the PCI Card and the Profile of your OptiPlex.

GX260 Small Form-Factor is compatible with Low-Profile PCI Cards only. GX260 Small Desktop and Small Mini-Tower are compatible with standard PCI Cards. (Small Mini-Tower however uses a PCI Cage).

Check OptiPlex GX260 Systems User's Guide - http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/ug/index.htm
From here you visualize the 3 form factors. Also there is info and steps to install PCI cards.

NB:
1. Generally, upmarket PCI cards are standard height. Some manufactures supply a metal piece to allow it to be used in Low-Profile or Standard Profile.
2. Driver software needs to be installed after the hardware is installed.
