I want update Ethernet Controller but I dont know how


  1. Click "Start" to open the "Start" menu.

    Right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer," depending on your version of Windows.

    Click "Properties."

    Click "Device Manager." This will be located on either the upper-left side or on a tab at the top of the "Properties" window, depending on your version of Windows.

    Double-click on "Network Adapters" in the "Device Manager" window. This will display your Ethernet card.

    Right-click on your Ethernet card and click "Update Driver Software..."

    Select the option to search automatically for updated driver software. This option will search the Internet for any new drivers available for your Ethernet card. If you presently have the latest drivers then you will be prompted that the latest drivers are already installed on your system and the window will close. If new drivers are available they will be automatically installed.

I have a Dell XPS400 and can not connect to the internet because the machine does not have any installed network adapters. I have always had internet access...where do I find this adapter if I can't get...


This is onr example of a Network adapter, or also know as an Ethernet Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=686143&CatId=200

This is Dell Support >XPS 400 desktop computer > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/index.htm

1) Work on a table. Computer off, and unplugged from power, open the computer case.

(Removing the Computer Cover, in the list)

2) Follow Anti-Static precautions.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components, inside a computer.

To relieve your body of Static, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be sure to Touch the metal frame again ]

3) View the motherboard inside your computer.
(The motherboard is also referred to as the Mainboard, {Proper speak}, and System Board)

Technical Overview > System Board Components,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/techov.htm#wp1053398

Viewing the illustration of the motherboard, the Ethernet Adapter Card example I gave above, would go in either one of the PCI expansion slots.

These are white in color, and in the illustration are labeled - PCI Card Connectors.

If there is already an adapter card installed in both PCI expansion slots, then see if the PCI Express x1 expansion slot is open.

In reality, PCI Express is a better technology than PCI.

Shown on the motherboard as PCI Express x1 Card Connector.

This is an example of an Ethernet Card, (Ethernet Adapter Card), that uses the PCI Express x1 expansion slot,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4675156&CatId=200

The reason I have suggested buying, and installing an Ethernet Adapter Card is threefold.

1) You may have your Ethernet cable plugged into the Ethernet port of the computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/about.htm#wp1053567

[Number 3 - Network Connector],

and the built-in Ethernet is no good.
Reinstalling drivers May help, but the above is a sure thing.

2) You have an Ethernet Adapter Card plugged into one of the PCI slots, or the PCI Express x1 slot, and the Ethernet adapter card is no good.
They do go bad, and are economical to replace.

3) There was an Ethernet Adapter Card installed previously, but taken out before you received the computer.

Network card gateway 830gm


Well, you most likely will have to replace the network card, as you already know.
If your network connection is part of the motherboard, disable that one and plug in a new network interface card.

They are fairly plug and play....

Ethernet network adapter not working on T20


Also , not all IBM T20/T21 laptops shipped with a ethernet card fitted.
some had a modem only card. some a combined modem/ethernet card.

if the tiny LEDs light when plugged into a known active network connection then the card is present.
if they dont light up then it probably isnt present.

to check for the card..remove the panel secured by a single screw (just above center of the base)
the panel is in the top right quadrant of the bottom of the PC if you look at the bottom with the power connector at the top and the battery at the bottom.

remove the screw. open the panel.
there may or may not be a card present.
if there is if there is only a single white connector (with 2 small wires) then it is the Modem only card.
if there are 2 connectors one with 2 wires and another bigger with 8 wires..then you have the network card. check the connectors a fully pushed home.
its fiddly good luck

If the ethernet card on your computer is built in meaning it came with the mother or its not an epansion card conencted to a PCI slot on your computer and its already bad, the best thing to do here is to get a new Ethernet card that will be connected to a PCI slot of your computer you can check this model number from Linksys LNE100TX or NC1oo ethernet card are not expensive so you can just go and get a new one...

About ethernet


If you computer has already a ethernet card installed on it, just need to get a ethernet cable and connect it to your modem and the other to the computer and make sure the USB is disconnected already, then power off your modem and restart the computer then power the modem back on and check if internet is already working, if its not working you may need to contact your ISP and tell them to enable the ethernet connection of your modem....

Cannot obtain internet


if you already have an ethernet card installed in the laptop, then it should be fine. did you try rebooting the modem that you are hooking the laptop to? Sometimes with different ISPs that is one of the major issues.
