You would need to go to a friend or family member's house and download the driver onto a cd or flash drive, The go to your computer and install the driver.

Heh, gotta love it when your internet doesnt work and they ask you to go online for a solution. Your only option will be to download it from another computer and put it on a flash drive or external hard drive, or burn it to a cd. You can pick up a 2-4gb flash drive these days for around $10 at walmart/bestbuy etc. A must have in my opinion. If you have one already, great! Good luck, and if you have troubles finding the driver, just post what its for and we'll help ya find it :)

What the heck? This is crazy!


You can get a USB to ethernet adapter which will enable you to connect to the internet and download the drivers:

Otherwise, download the drivers using a different PC, save them to a usb stick, plug that into the machine that needs the drivers and install them from the stick.

Dell optiplex GX620 desktop has an ethernet port on it, that is not an adapter, I cannot connect to the internet, I downloaded and installed a driver for a wireless ethernet adapter, but that has not...


Okay,..........

1) You can download a wireless Ethernet adapter driver all day, but if you Do Not have a wireless adapter card installed in your computer, the drivers do you no good.

Or if you do not have a wireless USB adapter plugged into a USB port.

Example of a wireless adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4695358&CatId=2692

Example of a wireless USB device,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6367137&CatId=2692

Example of an Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

If you are just going to hardwire the computer, just buy an Ethernet adapter card, (PCI version), and install it in your computer, (On the motherboard), in any available white PCI slot.

IF it is the Mini Tower model.

The Desktop, Small Form Factor (SFF), and Ultra Small Form Factor (SFF) computers, are too small in width for a regular size Ethernet adapter card.

They need a Low-Profile Ethernet adapter card,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833114034

This is for a Dell Optiplex GX620 Mini-Tower computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx620/en/ug/A02/mtabout0.htm#wp1051997

Scroll the page down until you come to the bold blue heading - System Board Components
This is an illustration of a Top view of the Mini-Tower's motherboard.

16 and 17 point to two PCI slots.
This is where an Ethernet adapter card that is the PCI version, will plug into.

PCI slots are White in color.
An example of a basic PCI slot, ( 3 are shown),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PCI_Slots_Digon3.JPG

If you do decide to go wireless;

1) Wireless networking operates at half of the speed of wired networking.

A computer that is wired directly to an Ethernet adapter card, is twice as fast on the internet, as a computer that is connected wireless.

2) Make sure your Router is capable of wireless.
Make sure the wireless router has a built-in Modem, or that you have a separate Modem.

[ For DSL.
Phone line connects to Filter. Filter has a place for a telephone cable, and an Ethernet cable.
Ethernet cable connects to Filter, and other end connects to Modem.
Ethernet cable goes from Modem to Wireless router that does not have a built-in Modem.

OR,
Phone line connects to Filter. Ethernet cable from Filter goes directly to wireless router, that has a built-in Modem.

Computer has to have a USB wireless device, or a wireless adapter card, installed.

For additional questions, or to clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.

since the network card is built onto the motherboard reinstalling the driver would be the best first option.

HERE is the link to the driver.
Broadcom827.exe - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver Version: 8.27.1.0
Supports: Windows XP
Note: This is the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver for use with the Big Lake, Cortez, and Putton Bay motherboards in Windows XP.

I would try that first.

Dlink dfe690txd ethernet card an my laptop i need instuctions on using it to get on the internet


Ok, install the drivers from the CD that came with the card, if you do not have these download them from D-link. After you have installed them, you then use that Ethernet adapter to connect to a Router/Modem, the Router, or Modem then connects to the Internet. Your Laptop connects to the Router/Modem, and then you can access the Internet.

You should have had 2 cds that came with your computer. The 2nd one has all the drivers on it. Install the drivers and your problem will go away.

Cannot get on the internet


light should be green instead of orange. check in your device manager to make sure the driver is installed for the ethernet adapter, if it is then you know the motherboard is bad cause the ethernet adapter is connected to the motherboard.

If the driver for the ethernet adapter is not installed then go to support.dell.com and from there go into the drivers section, type in your model and then download the driver for your laptop and install it and then see if you can connect. If you do this and you still can't connect then that still means the ethernet adapter is bad and the motherboard would still have to be replaced.

Unable to connect to internet


Hi.

What do you mean by "reloading Windows"? Did you repair it? Maybe did reinstallation? If so, you may need to install drivers for your Ethernet adapter. You will need to specify Ethernet adapter manufacturer and model (if it is onboard adapter, then motherboard manufacturer and model), so I can provide you with the download link, in case you don't have the drivers.

Have to reinstall ethernet driver. Need to use a usb wireless to get online, then choose search online for driver, or right click the ethernet adapter in device manager and choose device ID and search for driver on another computer and then install it on yours.
