Question about Dell Ethernet Card Network Adapter

1 Answer

Network Adapter Connector does not work.

I have a dell dimension 4700 and the network adapter connector in this system does not seem to be turned on. When I hook up the power cable to the PC, usually, I see some light especially from the network adapter connector. What is going on with it? I reformatted the c: drive because it had a virus on it. Also, in the device manager it shows the ethernet card in the other devices section with a yellow question mark.

It is a driver issue... especially if your Device Manager has a question mark, and you recently re-installed windows.

This could be hardware failure as well, but looks a lot more like a simple driver problem. Find the latest driver, install it, restart, you should be good.

I can't connect to intenet after reinstalling windows. it says error 312. wired network adapter not found.


You probably need to install the drivers for the network adapter.
Go to"Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are beingdisplayed next to any devices. Double click on those devices and a windowwill pop open telling you about the error. You can access the "DeviceManager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "AdministrativeTools", "ComputerManagement" and select "Device Manager" located in the left sidecolumn.

I want to buy a PCI network card for Dell Dimnesion 4700. I have not used one before . what is mopst approrpriate card?


An Ethernet adapter card that has a capability of a transfer rate, of up to 1000 Mega Bits per Second.

Just about all of them nowdays.

Older versions were 10/100, but now for the specifications it will state 10/100/1000 for a decent network adapter card.

Here is an example of one,

Not an advertisement for website, nor manufacturer of network adapter card.

As for naming a manufacturer that makes the best one's? Doesn't really matter.

Reinstalled Windows XP no ethernet card


Hi,

It seems that after re-installing windows you have missed the Driver installation for your hardware. If you have a disk (which reads Drivers and Utilities) that came with your computer, You can insert it in your CD Driver and select the Driver for Network adapter. If you do not have a disc, you can always visit the Dell's support site i.e.:support.dell.com and Get the drivers suitable for your hardware by selecting the model or Entering the Service Tag of your Dell computer.

For your convenience I am providing below the link for Drivers for Dimension 4700 Desktop PC as you have mentioned.
Intel (R) PRO/100 Driver for Dimension 4700

Hope you find this information helpful.

Your comments and ratings are highly appreciated. Please do not forget to leave your feedback and ratings.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Dell dimension 4700 NIC problem


This is very common after a fresh installation of the OS. Simply go to Windows Update and run it a couple of times. Upon reboot, the system will detect your hardware and you'll be back in business!
Good luck!

Dell Dimension 4600 - network adapter disabled - I was told that I would need to re-load the hardware disk that came with the computer. Problem is the disk does not work - it's corrupt. What is work around...


Hi,
Right click on the icon in the system tray and select open network connections, a new window will pop up, right click on the disabled network adapter and select enable.
If the icon is not in the system tray go to the control panel, select network connections and enable the adapter.
If it still won't enable you may have to enable the LAN (network adapter) in the BIOS.
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.



Regards.
