Check if a cable is connected well the light will blink on the ethernet port. After that you cant see the whether the cable is connected just go to the My Network places(if you are using the microsoft windows) and goto network connections and local arear connections, right click it,and go to properties , now you can see the select button with message like (show icon in taskbar when connected ) just select it apply all the setting which is changed and close it reconnect the cable now you can see the message when is cable is connected

Check the cable by trying another one if you have not already done so. Before you buy a new ethernet card try downloading the driver for the ethernet card you now have and see if that solves the problem. Go to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600 If not then any Ethernet 10/100 PCI card should work fine in your Dell.

You need to be more specific as far as your layout. On your modem there is only one Ethernet port that needs to have a cable running into your D-Link router's WAN port. Now take a second Ethernet cable and run it from an available port on the D-Link router to your Dell XPS.
You may need to check that you have the correct Network Adapter driver installed. They are a bunch of scenarios that could be your problem. But with the little bit of information you provided, its hard to narrow it down for you.

Here are some things to check.
  1. In the system setup, ensure that the network adapter is enabled.
  2. Check device manager and see if the driver is properly installed.
  3. If the integrated NIC doesn't work, you can disable it in the BIOS and install a PCI NIC (Less than $20) and the system will work that way.

This might work for you. Now to go in and configure the router thats something totally different.
To physically install the router
Step 1: Connect the power adapter Connect the power adapter to the router and plug it into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch.
Step 2: Connect the router to the computer Disconnect the ethernet cable that is connecting the broadband modem to the network adapter in the computer. Connect the ethernet adapter in the computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Step 3: Connect the router to the modem Connect the ethernet port on your broadband modem to the WAN port on the router.

When I try to reinstall my router I can't get beyond the first step as the disk thinks our computer is not connected to the internet when it is. It convinces my computer that it is no longer connected....


Step 1: Turn off your computer, router, and disconnect the power to the modem.

Step 2: Connect one cable between the modem and the router's internet port

Step 3: Connect another cable between the router and the computer.

Step 4: Turn on the computer, then the router, then the modem - in that order.

Step 5: Now try running the setup disk.

Explanation: The modem has a security feature that disallows more than one device from connecting to it at one time. Once a specific device is connected, the modem expects that device to be connected at all times. If you unplug your computer from the modem and plug in the router without disconnecting the power to the modem, the connection will be rejected. This probably explains the reason for the error message you were receiving.

Furthermore, you do not need the installation disk in order to install your router. Open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar. A username and password screen will appear, the default is usually admin/admin for both, but if that doesn't work just try admin in the password field. When you have successfully logged into the web utility, you will be able to alter the settings at your discretion. For the most part the router will work upon proper cable connections, however you will want to enable security features to prevent attackers from gaining access to your computer.
