    Helllo,
    I'm trying to install my new ADSL modem. To identify & validate it, i need to get a wire connection to the web site of my ADSL provider. To do so i have to make an ethernet connection between the modem and my PC (DELL dimension 5150 pentium4). I dit it without result.
    I reinstalled the pilot (R105478.EXE)for my local network card with no result. I have a wifi card installed (netgear). I don't know what to do now.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I think it is included on the motherboard of my DELL 5150(I'm not sure). The bios information (F2 when I boot) tells PCI has ethernet on slot 3.
    I also hase installed a wifi card (Netgear) on my PC. I reinstalled the Pilot for local network (R105478.EXE from DELL).
    Thank you for your help.

    Hello,

    How can I see if I have a RJ-45 Ethernet port on the DELL ?
    Thank you for your help.

    @ mrninja
    Thank you for your answer.

    Since I have installed a wifi network card (Netgear) on my PC, the RJ-45 Ethernet port doesn't work.
    I need it for the 1st connection of my ADSL modem to the provider web site. I don't know what to do.
    Regards.

I want to install ADSL2/2 + modem with 4 port ethernet router, along with Xtreme N dual band gigabit router. My OS is Windows 7. I tried to inserting the IP address but this had no effect. Do I need new...


Hello there,

When you ask questions, you have to tell the exact model. When you say you want to install it, do you mean configure the ADSL connection and Wireless LAN? If so, you have to configure the ADSL connection first. You have to get the settings from your ISP. Usually the default address for D-Link routers is 192.168.0.1. You would also want to check the user manual.

You do not need the drivers. You are going to connect it via ethernet cable. And then you can configure from there. Once ADSL connection is working, you can now connect your Gigabit router to one of the ports on your ADSL 2+ gateway.

Good luck!

Ethernet controller driver needed


You can download and install the required drivers from Dell's official website. Click on the link below:

On this page there are four files, download them all and install them. You should be able to use your network card after successful installation.

Note: If the above link is not working, go to www.dell.com. On the top right corner of the Dell's website click on 'Support'. A new page will open from where you choose Drivers and Download option. Next step is to choose your laptop model.

Dell dimension 5150 ethernet problem reloaded windows xp home from a windows xp entertainment os. apear fine but not receiving.


Okay, so it seems you installed Microsoft Windows XP Home on a what was Media Center Edition installation, and the ethernet is no longer worker.
Please refer to dell.com's support section, enter your model, and download drivers that you need.
To find drivers you need, Go to start --> control panel and then go to (under classic view) system --> the hardware section, open up device manager, and then look for ones with a yellow big question mark, and get those drivers from dell's website. Burn these drivers to a CD on another computer, or use a USB flash drive if that does work.
Good luck.

I recently formated my hard drive on my dimension 5150 now i can't connect to the internet to update the puter because i can find the ethernet driver


Find a computer with internet access and type http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R105478.EXE into the browser. It will prompt a download for your network card. Burn it to a CD or copy to USB drive. Then take to your computer and run the file and your ethernet card will be working. This is for the ethernet card on your motherboard. If you have an aftermarket one as well this will get you on your way.

Ethernet driver


Note the Service Tag of the the PC and access the Dell website from another PC. Go into the support section of Dell website, select Download Drivers, and enter the service tag of your PC.

You should be able to find the ethernet driver for it (if there are 2 or more download both and save to a CD or USB memory stick.

Now go to your Dell. You should be able to run the program from the USB stick and it will restore the Ethernet connection.

Do the same for other drivers you need, sound, graphics, etc.

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting


Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.

PNY memory


Hi

Dell Dimension 5150 supports DDR2 400MHz (PC2-3200) and DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4300) unbuffered SDRAM Memory (DIMM). You may install a total of four DIMMs in capacities of 256MB, 512MB, or 1GB. The maximum memory supported is 4GB.

From your query, I think the obvious question is; What is specification of the PNY DIMM and/or does the PNY DIMM meet the requirements for Dimension 5150?

Check for memory configuration and installation procedures for Dimension 5150 - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/parts1.htm#wp1364711

The Chipset used on Dimension 5150 is Intel 945G Express. I am not aware of specific compatibility issues regarding the Intel 945G and PNY Memory modules. However, there may really be known issues that I am not aware of.

To proceed, ensure that the PNY Memory is compatible with Dimension 5150. If not, install compatible (memory type, speed, capacity) DIMMs.

Let me know if further help is needed.
