    I need a ethernet controller driver for my dell dimension 4600 can not get on the internet without. Help!!!

    And I have no disc

    I need to download and burn to a cd

  • stefyboy Jul 08, 2008

    the operating system is windows XP home edition and the ethernet came with my pc thanks

  • jerryinpf Sep 03, 2008

    My problem is the same. The Ethernet card light (next to the input cable) indicates that the hardware is OK, but my system can neither find nor install the driver from my ResourceCD (P/N 9G705, Rev. A02). the System routines do not identify my controller manufacturer, or Model.

    Does that mean the controller is on the system board?
    Can you tell me what driver I should load?

    ethernet controller driver somehow does not rollback

  • igmyster Dec 29, 2008

    I have the same PC (Dell Dimension 4600) with a similar problem...the light right underneath the ethernet cable was green before I reinstalled my Windows XP Home edition but after the installation, it is now yellow and my computer does not recognize that I even have a network card. I tried installing the driver as you described above from the Dell site, but it has not worked. Any other suggestions? Thank you so much for any help you can provide and happy holidays!

    I have the same problem, ethernet light is yellow. How can you download a driver if you can't get on the internet. My Dell has Windows XP Professional.


  • alon_gl Feb 20, 2009

    I have the same problem, and cannot find the ethernet driver in the Dell website. There are 7 options for driver under Network, none is relevant.

    I looked for additional driver, but the Dell web page for Dimension 4600 is badly structured and I simply could not find any of them.

    Can someone simply find the driver and send it (or send a link)? I will be glad to get links for the Audio (I have SoundBlaster AudioPCI 64V) and video (I have 32MB nVidia GeForce2 MX).

    My question to those of you who are posting saying you can't get on the Internet to download the driver is this; How can you post to this website if you have no internet access? I am not trying to be mean, but the troubleshooters here need to know this. If you can get online to post, you should be able to get online to download a driver, unless your workplace prohibits downloading. Now with that said, try to find a friend that has internet access or try your public libraries, or local colleges. I have never had a problem downloading the drivers from DELL's website and getting them to work. There may be several entries under the NIC entry. Make sure that you look for and download the ones that say driver and not diagnostic or utility. There may be multiple NIC drivers, download them all. I find it helpful to add what the drivers are for to the end of the DELL names so it ends up something like this: R570105NIC. Also download the other drivers for your machine, you may have to install the chipset driver before your NIC will work 100%.

    If you still have the original disks your drivers will be on there. Reload all of them.

    Whenever you reload a harddrive it wipes out all of your previous drivers and sometimes Windows does not have an equal driver pre-loaded in it.

Hi stefyboy - Below is a link where you can download your driver. After you get to the page just make sure it says Windows XP as the operating system. Then scroll down and click on the + next to where it says network. You want the intel 10/100 driver. I've included a few a ways to install it. If your kinda new to this the easiest is the download to desktop method and just remember where it unzipped it to, you can always move it to a driver directory where you can keep all your drivers for the future.

If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.

Ethernet controller didn't work

Have you checked your drivers?
Go to control panel - system - device manager
Or control panel - type in device manager (depending on your os)

If there is a question mark beside your ethernet controller than you need to update the driver. If you have the disc pop it in the computer and then right click the ethernet controller and click update driver and then follow the wizard through and that should fix it if the driver isn't there.
If you haven't got the disc you will need to download the driver from the manufacturers site.

How i istall ethernet driver from internet

If you have no internet because the ethernet controller was not installed, you will need to download the ethernet drivers from another computer.
To do this, you will need either the motherboard model or the ethernet controller model. Search google for your motherboard model, and then on the drivers page, find "LAN drivers". Download the drivers, save them to a usb and transfer and install them to your pc.
