Question about Dell Dimension 2350 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Onboard NIC I just did a fresh install of windows xp Pro and now it's not finding my onboard network card. When I hook it up to the router, it gives a solid and a blinking orange light.......please, please help. I've tried using the driver from dell. No help there. I can't even find the card on the list that windows gives you when you install new hardware.

The Dell site should have the correct drivers for your PC. I notice on their page they have two different models, a NeXtreme and a 4401 integrated. You might have to try both.

NetXtreme
4401

Each of these have a contained installer to make it easy.

Actually the two drivers dell has posted on their site for this model don't work. There support wasn't able to point me in the direction of a driver that worked either. I ended up having to put a generic 10/100 PCI card in it, Windows XP detected it with no driver needed, problem solved for $15 bucks, a lot less headache. Dell is bad about not having proper working drivers for a lot of their hardware, or using 10 different ones in a given model and you have to try them all before you find one that works.

Hiro h50015 nic on windows 7 says network cable unplugged when cable is clearly plugged in


To connect to the internet, you must have a device like a modem or a router. Is your PC connected to this device? Do you have other PCs or networked devices on your LAN? Can you reach them with ping?

To make it easier to help, you should give information how your network looks! e.g.
internet ---- cisco800 router --- d-Link switch ---- myPC
or something like that. Otherwise it is fooling around in the dark.

Compaq Presario 2050NX onboard pnp nic (LAN) device not found - reinstalled onboard LAN device driver, still can't see it


For Windows XP CLICK HERE
In Windows 7 the driver installs automatically
I would suggest uninstalling all drivers for the network adapter then reboot and allow the system to find the NIC again. If this is Windows XP uninstall all drivers for the NIC, reboot, and install the above driver.
If it is Windows 7 uninstall the drive, reboot and allow device manager to locate the driver itself.

I have an emachines t3256 desktop that i just reinstalled windows xp and now i cant get the network adapter to work its onboard and i cant find a driver on their website


Try installing a PCI ehternet card.Turn off the cpu then restart.The cpu will automatically (!?)detect the new hardware and even install the driver(generic).Then there you can get to the internet and get you E-machine drivers.It will also install the driver for your onboard ethernet(NIC) adapter and with that you are good to go.

Network card not detecting in RHEL4 & 5


The solution proposed by user 'Solutions58' seems to be about windows box since he is talking about 'Device Manager'
RHEL4 or 5 detect compatible NIC cards during boot up process automatically. Sometimes NIC may be detected but may not work properly due to lack of proper driver (a.k.a Module - in Linux culture).
Do this -
1. First find out from HP's web site if NIC for your model has Linux support. You can also use Google to find appropriate driver for your NIC. If yes then you need to follow instructions that are provided in the INSATLL file that comes bundled with the driver.
2. Otherwise buy a $10 NIC card which has Linux support. Disable your onboard NIC through your computer's BIOS and boot it. Linux should detect your NIC right away.
3. Following command can help you in your quest
As root
# dmesg | grep eth (Will show your detected NIC)
# service network status (Will also show configured & active devices)
# ifconfig -a (Will also show your network devices and related info)
# system-config-network (will let you configure your NIC via GUI)
(This would be your best choice)
# system-config-newtowk-tui (Will give you a text base interface to configure your NIC)

Just installed a D-Link DFE 530TX network adadpter into Dell Dimension 5000 desk top. Runnng Windows XP SP3. BT Home Hub 2.0 router. Even though broadband connection is fine to the router. The network...


Sounds like an IP address problem. Your IP address on both the NIC card (DFE 530) and the router have to be in the same address range. You can do this 2 ways. 1... Have your router hand out addresses automatically. Make sure DHCP is enabled and that you have at least one address available for it to give out. ie. 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.3. The first three number must be the same as the router. The other option is to manually set your IP address on your nic card to match the router. If the router is lets say 192.168.0.1 then you can assign 192.23.34.2 to your computer NIC. If you haven't been able to access your router then check your router manual to find out the default IP address and use the same number for your NIC changing only the last number. The largest number you can use is 255. Hope this helps.

Network Adapter/Ethernet Controller


Nothing wrong with having two network adapters installed on your computer. If you have this DWA-552 wireless adapter installed as well as an onboard NIC, the correct thing to do is have both drivers installed so you see them both in your Control Panel->Network Connections window.

If you really want the onboard nic to go away, go into device manager and disable it - not uninstall it.

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.

Ethernet driver


dear brian,

to get you an overview on which components you have, although not installed or recognized by win xp pro, download pcwizard2008, install and run the hardware detection program, it'll give you a lots of details about your computer, you can even save the data to a pdf-file.

networking components on your laptop may be:
- the 1394 adaptor
- the( to be found) ethernet card
- and if it is onboard or u plug it in via USB 2.0 port: the WLAN-adaptor

look for the (onboard?) realtek ethernet
card(rj-45 plug, similiar to dsl-cable)
using pcwizard, find out about the model and download suitable driver rom the net for winXP.
install and then try setting up a network/internet connection

(be wise enough to use the right cable:
for hooking up your lap to an internet dsl-router use dsl cable, to establish PC to laptop connecton you will need DSL cable plus crossover adaptor !)
i recommend to use cable connections, they're
older, more reliable and for safety reasons, better than wirelessLAN!

if you have used the 1394-network adaptor before, you are better than me, I dunno anything about it.

WLAN is an option when using laptop not at home- but don't clearly understand if the toshiba model u use already has WLAN-onboard device or u do use an external, USB 2.0 device to connect to the net...?
please give more detail about that- and do tell which toshiba laptop u use as this is helpful for me to find u a proper driver, if still needed.
