First thing to do is to choose which Operating System you're using. This is an example for the Dimension 5000, using Windows XP,

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_5000&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Left-click on the down arrow in the circle, to the left of - Network

There you will see - Broadcom - Driver
Left-click on - Download, to the right.
Then choose which way you wish to download.
Using Dell Download Manager, or your internet browser.

With using the internet browser, write down where the file will go.
IF, you Do Not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, the file will go to your desktop screen.
Double-click on the file, follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard. (Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish)

Here is the Service Manual for the Dimension 5000, also,

Thought I would include it in case you need it in the future.

Dell Dimensions 5000. Cant get online but I need to get the ethernet controller driver. Dell site does not give the option to save the download. How do I download if I cant get online?


try clearing out your cookies or using a different browser as your download options for that browser are now recorded with dell. you want to download using your browser - the bottom option - and save it to your desktop or usb drive. don't use their download manager!

I need the drivers for the ethernet controller and the network controller for a Dell latitude D620


For the D620, you would go to the following website. You'll need to select the operating system that you're running, and then go to the "Network" section of drivers and download the drivers there. There may be several different drivers since the D620 came with several different network adapters - It's most likely the Broadcom - Driver 57xx Gigabit Integrated Ethernet Controller.

Download the file and run it - it will walk you through the installation.

Ethernet card vanished from the list


xp will have basic drivers..go to the control panel, device manager, and have the system look at the hardware again( at top of the panel, there is an option for action) click on any of the items in the panel, and then Action, Scan for hardware changes..follow those instructions..it may ask for the drivers and utilities disk in that process..

Window Re-Install and no Ethernet Driver


use another computer to get the drivers from the dell webite (at home, library, friends) and save them on a CD or removable media. This would be the fastest and cost effective way. If you can get on the net to post this question then you can download and save the drivers as well

I had to reinstall XP like 6 months ago, on a dimensions 3000. just reinstall the drivers. here i think this is all of the drivers.
just start "Dell Driver Reset Tool.EXE"
and run "Sownd driver for 3000.EXE"
driver for vga "Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller.exe"

and the Ethernet driver "Intel PRO100 VE Network Connection.exe"
Click Here for a zip of all the drivers.
