Re: no network connection
Did you setup your network connection Go to control panel network setup and follow instructions make sure both computers are on the same network EG : network name = workgroups or similar And also is your router setup properly

There shouldn't be any issues if the network connection worked with the integrated NIC. Maybe you just managed to purchase a defective replacement card. The other possibility is that you didn't disable the onboard network hardware in the computer BIOS settings. There may be some conflicts since the motherboard is trying to address both of them. Make sure the onboard NIC is disabled, and try another PCI card if you still have problems.
It sounds like a driver issue. I assume you mean the card worked previously on an old motherboard. Remove the wireless NIC driver and then re-install it. I assume their are no yellow exclamation marks agianst your NIC in windows system properties? To see sys properties right-click "My Computer" select Properties/Hardware/Device Manager. Look for the network adaptors section. You can update drivers from here on your wirless card or even try the Troubleshooter tab. if you don't have the driver CD let windows go onto the internet and search for a driver. If you rely on the wireless card to connect to your internet connection, perhaps you can connect your computer to the internet modem or router via your computers LAN/network connection? If that's not possible, download the driver from the NIC cards manufacturer website and pop it onto a USB thumb drive which can then be installed onto your new computer. Last thought, make sure you are only using one controlling application for your NIC ie you use either the Windows Zero Config Utility OR the NIC cards manufacturer utily eg D-Link, Netcomm, etc etc That is not both at once as windows has a major hissy fit.
There should not be any problem with you buying your own PCI ethernet card and install it yourself. They are not that expensive. www.newegg.com has on for only $7.99 and it will work fine in your computer. It does not need to be from Dell.
No you can't download any faster with 2 NIC ports.
In a typical setup where a PC has 2 NICs, one is setup as the
connection to the internet and the other can be used to interface with
any device that is Ethernet capable (home video cameras, alarm systems,
home control systems, etc). However, the other NIC can be connected to
You can even share an internet connection though a wall NIC throughout the home.
This means 1 for the internet and the other for networking to another hub/server or computer.
if your system is still within warranty I would think twice about opening the case yourself to installing a new network card.. you will be voiding your warranty.. so think about it
another thing i would try before deciding on going for another network card is to check your onboard network adapter has updated drivers... or you may want to reinstall the drivers for that adapter.. either one of those may probably fix your issue assuming is not a hardware failing given that your system may not be that old.... make sure you check the windows update and look for any new hardware driver for your network adapter that may be avaliable through windows update.
before you install your new network pci card you may have/want to disable the one on board going into your bios for that. so to ensure there's no resource conflicts when installing the driver for your new card (it may not be a problem even if you don't but if you run into problems while installing the new card consider this suggestion)
Does it have a built-in system beep buzzer? or else you need to connect one. The system beep has a code and will tell you if your video is not connected or your memory is not detected.
Try to make it boot even until the bios screen. Check your video card or your monitor connector. A single beep is a good sign that your motherboard has no problems. hope this helps
