Question about Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

NIC too close to USB port?

I have a Dell Dimension 1100 with an onboard Intel Pro/100 VE network card. It stopped working after I plugged a Lexmark Z1300 printer into the USB port next to the ethernet port. I've upgraded the Intel driver, and ran diagnostics; the EEPROM, Control Registers, Interrupt, PHY Loopback, and MAC Loopback tests passed, but the Link test failed.

Using another computer, I can use wireless to connect to the modem and get on the internet, but can't connect to the modem's physical ports, either (this second computer's NIC is known good and works elsewhere). So I assumed the modem's ports were bad and got a new modem (exact same model). Still getting the message "network cable unplugged" for the Local Area Connection, and the Link test fails in the NIC diagnostics.

Is this NIC/USB problem common? Can it be fixed or does the motherboard need to be replaced?

I lost my lan driver


The Dell E210882 motherboard has been used in the Dell Dimension 3000. Thus you can try the Dell site for the XP driver. Start here: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/dimension-3000 and expand the section for network drivers.

If you have a different OS, try the Intel site since the onboard LAN is the Intel Pro/100 VE hardware. The Intel generic drivers are here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Network+Connectivity&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Adapters&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+PRO%2f100+VE+Desktop+Adapter . Use the drop-down menus to select your OS and drivers if you want to shrink the list below (left-hand side).

If the on-board LAN has failed (it happens), get a PCI ethernet card. Then disable the on-board LAN in the BIOS. Usually that can be accessed by pressing Esc, F1, F2 or F10 on startup. There should be a splash screen telling you which key to press. If you get to the Windows login or Start Screen try again.

I hope this helps.

What is tthe NIC


E210882 is the UL Labs Registration Number.
It looks like a Dimension 3000 or 4000 motherboard, which would be the Intel Pro/100 VE Network Card.

No high speed usb port


Hi Delvin!

The 2 usb-ports on the front and the 3 back of your Dell is high speed ones, at least the manual says so, they are all USB 2.0.
If you cant get them work properly with the 2.0 usb speed, you can buy an high speed pci add-in- card and install it on your pc.

Here you can read about the "high speed usb" :
http://www.usb.org/developers/usb20/

And here is the manual and avalible drivers for your Dell:

Good luck to you M8!

Dell 4700 Computer Integrated NIC Problem


Check for the pins inside the integrated NIC to check if the pins are bent / disfigured. Does not look like the additional card is making any different, looks more like a moving NIC cable is makin the difference.

Lemme know if this helped!

Internal USB connector


You did not have to unplug the onboard USB ports.
Your OS should see the card reader and set it up, unless you are using Win98 or WinME. I would plug the onboard USB ports, then restart with the new internal card installed.

Network Card


Yes the network card is the same ethernet card. If your intel pro/100 is onboard try to re install the driver from the motherboard drvier. Check also in the manager device it the network device have a complex to the other device. Follow this, Click START then RUN type DEVMMGMT.MSC then enter check if the network adapter have a yellow question mark. If you found the network adapter right click and uninstall it.and click the ACTION and click SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. After the installation finished try to connect to the internet. If still the same even you input the correct ip in the network configuration. Buy a new LAN card it's not expensive, because usually the onboard lan is easy to damage or not working properly you can installed and configured it but you cannot connect to the internet.
