Question about Dell Dimension 4550 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have an old Dell dimension 4550, I just got it from a friend, the enternet wont work. It says no wirelless or wired devices found and no drivers. I downloaded drivers onto a flash drive and tried to install them, it said that worked fine but still no internet conection. Please help. ALSO I took a pci card out of a compaq to switch them out but then i relized that that isnt where the ethernet cord goes so i have not switched them

Dell Dimension 4550 Drivers
From the above link you can download the required drivers. There are two drivers available for Broadcom and Intel. I suggested try the Intel Drivers (as your system may be having the Intel based Ethernet)
To PCI communication Controller (Modem) you have to install the Modem Drivers
Trt Eicon (recommended) Or broadcom conaxant etc

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Move the memory-stick to your computer, and "install" the device-driver.
