Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop
About a year ago, a storm came through where I live and my dell xps 200 stopped connecting to the intenet. I tried tech support but my warranty was up so now I am stuck with a computer that will not connect to the internet. My husband seems to think that it is the ethernet plug itself. It keeps saying that it can not repair the ip address.. please help!!
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.
