Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Ethernet Problem Like in a recent post, I am having problems with the Dell ethernet drivers. (from the Dell site) After reformating, all drivers worked accept the network drivers. After fresh install, installed the chipset drivers, then video, then network. It showed a limited connection, Then I tried making it a static IP since the "ipconfig /all" showed me no DNS. So I pluged my other PC and retrieved the IP info in full. Then pluged in the Dell and entered the ip info. Then it said it's conflicting with a another IP on this system??? Any ideas??

DJDXL, it sounds like when you copied the IP settings from the other computer on your network, you copied the Static IP address from that computer as well. This is most likely the reason you're seeing the conflicting IP address - they both want to be 123.123.123.123 (insert your own IP address here). You should change them so they are using different numbers on the final set of digits - for example, 123.123.123.121 and 123.123.123.122 - the last numbers must NOT match, but the first three sets should match.

Give that a try, hope this helps!

If it is telling you there is a conflict the drivers are working it is the properties of the network card that are incorrect. Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.(note the gap between ipconfig and the /). Go to the properties of your network card and on the TCP/IP line click properties and tick 'Obtain ip address automatically'

No ethernet controller device found

If you went to support.dell.com and keyed in your service tag from the Dimension - dell should allow you to drill down and select the correct one.

Sometimes there are a few - usually from the month to month the machines were made the drivers can be different.
I have had to open the case and get the model number off the device before

Ethernet driver

Note the Service Tag of the the PC and access the Dell website from another PC. Go into the support section of Dell website, select Download Drivers, and enter the service tag of your PC.

You should be able to find the ethernet driver for it (if there are 2 or more download both and save to a CD or USB memory stick.

Now go to your Dell. You should be able to run the program from the USB stick and it will restore the Ethernet connection.

Do the same for other drivers you need, sound, graphics, etc.

Ethernet controller

Hello,

More than likely this is the one that you need. It is for a Broadcom NIC. If that one doesn't work, they have this one for a Gigabit NIC listed here. I would start withe the integrated NIC divers. Both files have download instructions on the page if you need it.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks
