Hi,

Pls try running a network tweak such as DrTCP and/or TCPOptimizer. Additionally, you may want to re-check/re-configure your anti-virus and determine if it is in anyway hampering your network connection.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Wired network problem


First of all are you sure your Internet card is working? there should be 2 lights at the back of your CPU in the Internet port when you connect the RJ45 or Internet cable they suppose to blink to show they receive and sending data. Are you sure you the RJ45 cables are at their right places? you can always identify them by their colors.If you think every is ok with your connection and your modem is sending Internet signal you can always buy an Internet adapter (USB) to resolve your problem.

Network Driver


Hello,

A network driver will just keep your computer to communicate with the internet and it has nothing to do with the speed and strength of your internet. For that, you need to contact your internet service provider.

If you want to optimize your computer's performance to its best though, you can download and install RadarSync. It is driver updater which can make your computer up to date. However, just like what I just indicated earlier that it won't affect the speed of your internet. RadarSync can do a lot of things that are automated and can keep your computer to automatically fix driver problems.

I hope this helps.

Desktop computers do not usually have a wireless card installed. They will have a built-in LAN card that uses a LAN cable.
If you want to connect your computer using a wireless connection then you will need to install a wireless card in your computer and configure it to communicate with your wireless router.
Otherwise you can connect to your wireless router using a LAN cable.
Your wireless router may have built-in LAN ports and you can connect your computer to the wireless router using a network cable.

since the network card is built onto the motherboard reinstalling the driver would be the best first option.

HERE is the link to the driver.
Broadcom827.exe - Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver Version: 8.27.1.0
Supports: Windows XP
Note: This is the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet driver for use with the Big Lake, Cortez, and Putton Bay motherboards in Windows XP.

I would try that first.

Dell Optiplex 745 desktop will not connect to internet


Most desktops need to be connected with a wire to your network because most desktop computers do not come with a wireless NIC (network interface card). If you are not sure if yours has one you can get your service tag off of your computer and type it in the Dell website (link below) under drivers and downloads and look at the original configuration for your system. If you have a Wireless NIC card in your desktop it should connect just like your laptop computers did. If not you may have a defective wireless card.
