More likely it's the ethernet card or your ISP, (Internet service provider). Do this. Open control panel, open system. Click the hardware tab. Than click device manager button. Scroll down to network connections. Click the + sign which will open the network. Do you see a yellow ! point?
If you do than you need to re-install the network driver software. Click the link below, it will take you to Dell's web site. Listed there will be all the drivers for your XPS 200.

Click the + sign next to Network. Download & install the
Intel - Driver. Also download & install the Intel - HTML file.
There is also a Intel - Diagnostics Utility that will check your network card. This file may already be installed on your PC.
How ever do not run the utility un-till you install the other two files. Once you know your network card is working than it's down to your ISP. That requires a phone call. If your network card fails
you can add a new PCI network card. I'll post a link to some below. If you feel you need a new cable buy what's called a CAT6 Rj45 cable to go from your modem to the PC.
Click the link for PCI network cards:

Cable Rj45 CAT6

Both of these you can get at a local store. Opening the link gives you a picture to go by.
If you have more questions just post back here.

Good luck & kind regards.

Why cant i get wifi or wireless internet to work


Bill:
depends on how u r hooked to internet. direct thru cat5 cable to modem, or wirelessly thru router? then, you must make sure that your modem is connected to web? make sure modem is connected; plug in to desktop(off) then turn desktop on; go to start, then control panel, then Network and Internet; find out if you see a connection? if so, then right click on network connection, click on Troubleshoot Issues. this will try to resolve your internet connectivity. if you still cannot get online, call your internet provider for more specific steps in fixing.

My daugther bought a Dell xps 200 at a yard sale over a year ago and she has never been able to log onto it because it has an administrator password on it and it won't allow you to do anything without it. ...


Please check site below. You can disable the motherboard password via a jumper settings.

If the administrator password you are telling about is for windows, then you just have to reformat the hard disk and install the operating system you want.

Dell XP 200 Dimension ethernet port


Hello.

I'd suggest testing with another computer and the same Ethernet cable to your modem to see if the results are the same and to narrow down which component is the problem.

Was it always slow with this setup or did something change.

Is the Linksys adapter connected via USB ? That would be slower than an internal adapter.

Try updating the Linksys adapter software - Device Manager - rightclick - update driver.

Hope these suggestions help.

Need drivers to run windows 98se on dell xps m140


Microsoft (and Dell) stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago -- it lasted for over TEN years! So, it is *NOT* likely that you will find drivers for any computer that was "designed for Windows 2000" or "designed for Windows XP" or "designed for Vista".

So, in general, it is a _bad_ idea to connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- Microsoft has issued many "security-fixes" in the 4 years after they stopped supporting Windows 98 and Windows ME.

Wireless issues with my Dell XPS/Dimension One desktop


Even if it's a new Dell, you may need to update either the drivers for the wireless card or the BIOS.

Also, verify which protocol your Dell is set to use (i.e. 802.11g, 802.11b, auto-select, etc.). Dell may have fixed to to a slower protocol for compatibility.
