Ethernet for Dell Dimension 2400?

I had to reinstall my whole operating system and now I cannot install the modem drivers for comcast cable internet on my computer, I could not do this before I reinstalled my whole operating system. When I go to install the drivers it says that my computer meets all of the requirements except for Ethernet, which it says is "not found." Which Ethernet card do I need to get in order to be able to solve this problem and use cable internet on my computer?

You need to install the ethernet card driver of your system,
hope this solve:

If the ethernet is not detected and it is built in to motherboard maybe is damage

If not built in; try to transfere the card to the other slot beside or its equivalent slot.

If not solve the problems;

Time to buy new ethernet card. You can buy any ethernet card for broad band connection.

Cant get on the internet

The longer the cable, the slower the connection.

It should work with the cable as it is not "too" long.

I would try turning the modem and router off for one minute and then turning back on.

Can't log onto internet or my mail , then there was the term something isn't plugged in.

Check that the ethernet cable is plugged in to the back of the computer. Also check that the cable is connected to the modem and that the modem is switched on.

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall

Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.

Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop - Can't connect to internet

The NIC (network interface card) is integrated into the motherboard of the 2400 computer. Most likely that circuit is bad. To fix it you’ll have to replace the motherboard or purchase a NIC card and install it into one of the PCI slots on the motherboard.

Ethernet Controller

I had to reinstall XP like 6 months ago, on a dimensions 3000. just reinstall the drivers. here i think this is all of the drivers.
just start "Dell Driver Reset Tool.EXE"
and run "Sownd driver for 3000.EXE"
driver for vga "Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller.exe"

and the Ethernet driver "Intel PRO100 VE Network Connection.exe"
Click Here for a zip of all the drivers.
