Driver de internet dell

Let me get my spanish going. There's no such thing as a Internet Driver. What is happening with your system? What happens when you click on Internet Explorer? You might have a connection problem instead of a driver problem.

I think you mean Network Driver. On the Dell Optiplex GX270 the NIC or Network Interface Card is standard on the computer. Every computer comes with one. So if you plug a network cable from your modem or router into the network card on the back of the computer it should light up if it's working. If it's not working you need to purchase a network card. Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections and see if it says connected. If it does right click on it and select properties, then select the option near the bottom of the window that says "show icon in the notification area when connected" and click OK. Now if you look at the bottom right near the time you should see a computer with green lights on it. That means it's connected.

Assuming the card is there and lights up then that means your drivers are already loaded. But if by some freak chance they were not there you'll need an internet connection to go to google and type in the search "dell support" ( without the quotes). Look for drivers and downloads. Give it your computer model Dell Optiplex GX270 and your operating system. Download and install the driver.

I am trying to get an ethernet connection to my isp provider(Sprint) on my home computer. However, they said that I need to install a network card in order to get connection. How do i install this? Or is...

Hi hdixon530,

Your motherboard should have an ethernet port ready to go so you shouldn't need a network card (see atached picture)

The only thing you need to get internet acess is for them to come to your house, install the router and the internet line and then configure your pc for it's use.

I have a dell optiplex gx100. I installed Windows XP but it wont conect to the internet. Please help

In order to connect to the Internet, you need the following things:

- an Internet service provider (ISP)
- a network interface card (NIC) or modem
- a cable to connect from the NIC or modem to the jack in the wall where your Internet service comes in

Do you have all of these three things? What type of Internet service do you have? (ie. cable, dial-up, DSL, etc.)

I can't get my Dell Optiplex GX270 to communicate with my modem

You might be lacking your System BUS and Chipset drivers. Your chipset controls your outbound hardwares (that includes Ethernet). If you still ever had your Resource CD, that may come in handy for your drivers are in there. If not, what you could do is to download all necessary drivers using different PC and I assume you have any media to transfer the files (e.g. Flash drives, SD cards, ... others), from there copy the file in ant directory you want.

Follow the file on that Directory you created from the downloaded files.

Order of installation should be:
1) Chipset
2) Audio
3) Communications(modem)
4) Network (Ethernet/LAN/Wireless)
5) Input Devide Drivers
6) IDE & EIDE Controllers

you may have to skip installing others drivers if you already have it.

To check what drivers that are missing just press "Win + Pause Break" buttons. On "System Properties" window click the "Hardware" tab then "Device Manager" button.

On Device Manager look for a the ones that are not installed are that with a yellow triangle icon.

Hope this helps.

My modem makes a skewky niose when i switch it on

If it's a dial up modem this is probably normal, if it's for adsl (fast internet) then contact your provider to have them replace it, if it isn't working.

I can't find PCI or USB drivers for a Dell Optiplex GX270

Do you know the motherboard mfg?
if it something other than the Dell then you can get the drivers.
USB drivers are mostly generic and are available at Microsoft. there is an application called "Driver Detective" and they are good. They check the computer and get everything you need.
