Does this computer have an inturnal network adapter? If it does take yourself to dell's website. (Maybe on a different computer lol) Dell will have the drivers you need on their site install them onto this computer and you will be ready to go
you will have to use another computer to download the drivers but HERE is the link for your model PC. remember to select the correct operating system. It may be best just to download the network driver first then run windows update. Often the windows update will find missing hardware drivers and let you install them instead if having to go look for them.
If you have just installed Windows XP on this system, you may need to locate your network interface card (NIC) drivers on the manufacturer's website. Since you do not have network connectivity, this can be done on another computer and use a USB device or a CD/R to transfer them.
It is best to find the model of the computer and search the computer manufacturer's website for correct drivers. If they are not available, then find the NIC type in the specifications of the computer, and search the internet for the drivers for that card.
First, did you get the correct driver for your network device (on the motherboard or otherwise) when you reinstalled XP? Check in the device manager (from the Control Panel among other routes) for a yellow exclamation point. If you do not have the driver, you need to find the right one for your computer - from the manufacturer of your motherboard. If your network connection has lights, are they lit? Next check that you have your network properties correctly set. Do you use a dynamic address or a static address to access your router? Is the router accessed with a fixed address (gateway)?
Also if you have a wireless network adapter, you should check if the wired network works.
1. check first your lan connections,
click start, go to control panel, click network connections din check your local area connection.
2. right click the local area connection, then try to disable and enable it.
3. if not been solved,
try to look the driver of your ethernet drivers
look at and search your motherboard's brand and model then search it and download for your drivers for your network adapter.
or you may try this,
1. right click my computer
2. click properties
3. clcik hardware tab
4. click device manager,
5. click network adapter
6. right click the name of your network adapter then, click update
Hi, If your son' s computer has a LAN port, then install the LAN driver.
LAN port is different from modem. Modem is used for dial-up connection
while LAN uses broadband or dsl connection. If you do not know where or
how to find the LAN driver, post the manufacturer and model name of
your LAN or the motherboard. You can also find it by right clicking the
My Computer icon->Manage->Device Manager. On the right side,
Expand the Network Adapter. You will then find the software that you
are going to reinstall. Another thing is to try to update the driver if
it works or not. Here are the steps :
Right click My Computer icon.
A box will appear (Computer Management), Click Device Manager
On the right side, Click and expand Network Adapters
Right click the software, click update driver.
Wait 'til it finds the necessary software.
If it does, then your finished installing the Network
Adapter driver. If it says it cannot find the necessary software, you
have to manually install it.
IF NOT yet installed, copy the Network Adapter software and paste it in google to find your Network Adapter installer.
I hope this fix your problem. Drop me a comment again if you encounter some problems, ok? I will assist you.
The tech was incorrect - your network adapter is just not recognized by the system. If you install the correct drivers for your particular network adapter it should be recognized, which should then solve your problem. Search the Gateway website for network drivers for your particular desktop, and if the network adapter was added (not built into the computer) then determine the manufacturer and model of your network adapter, then search the manufacturer's website for the correct drivers.
Even easier, if you still have the original disks that came with your computer and/or network adapter, they should include the correct drivers.
