Your system has an
Integrated Intel PRO 10/100 Ethernet port. You can hook the DSL modem to that.

No, you don't need a card, as long as you have an Ethernet to USB adapter, you should be just fine.

I need an ethernet controller driver for my dell dimension 4600 desktop


Well that is a problem. You can go to "support.dell.com" to download the drivers, however since you can't connect to the internet you will need to use a friends computer and download it.

I can't get my usb devices to work on my dell 4600 series pc. It won't reconise anything I try to plug in to the usb ports.


Try deleting your usb drivers.

Right-click My Computer
Manage
Device Manager
USB Controllers
Delete (Generic USB Hub)
Restart computer
(Windows will auto-install the drivers, on reboot)

Plug your device back in, and see i've it works.

I have a 2003 Dell Dimension 4600 and the network adapter is testing fine. However I am unable to access broadband internet and email through a wired USB/Ethernet connection to external modem. Both the...


the hard wired connection to the modem could be a system configuration issue, the cable has gone bad, or the modem is having connectivity issues with the service.
if your optical drives are not working physically, then you can't really fix that. if they just arent responding properly or Windows cant detect that they are there, then you may need to reinstall the driver software for the drives. which can be found on the Dell website or the manufacturer of the optical drives.
yes you can set up a wireless connection with a USB adapter but the modem also needs to have wireless capability in order for you to create the connection.
there are external USB optical drives available. so you can purchase a usb connected CD/DVD drive or burner. they shouldnt be very expensive nowadays.

Check the cable by trying another one if you have not already done so. Before you buy a new ethernet card try downloading the driver for the ethernet card you now have and see if that solves the problem. Go to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600 If not then any Ethernet 10/100 PCI card should work fine in your Dell.

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

Computer needs ethernet card for highspeed internet


It depends on your computer and your operating system, but generally if you have USB ports with a Windows-based machine, then you can use a USB ethernet adapter. You plug the adaptor into your USB port, then the ethernet cable into the adapter.

Almost any electronics supply store ie Circuit City, Best Buy, plus Walmart and other big discount stores carry USB Ethernet Adapters. You can also try your local mom 'n' pop computer supply store.

http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=133

I'm posting a link to a DLink adapter as an example *only.* There are other brand names out there that would probably do just as well.

Hope this helps!
