Download the networks drivers from the dell webite.

Update the driver in Windows XP.

Hope this helps.

Also a good driver utility is DriverMax. It's free and it will search for drivers for your computer. It will also backup all the drivers currently installed on your system and has a restore feature as well. Here is the link: http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/

For driver seachers you have to have internet connection to get the drivers and I can't until I get the driver. I have gone to the dell site and downloaded all that i can and this one is still missing.

If it's the onboard NIC you need to get working, I think its the 3com 3C920. Here is the link: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~mode=popup&file=58539
If you have already downloaded this and run it (it should create a directory of C:\Dell\Drivers\R49651\) and started the setup program to install the driver. If this worked then you should be able to connect. (After rebooting.) We are talking about the onboard NIC and not the wireless NIC, right?
