Installing Drivers for Ethernet controller and card

This system came with the abilty of 64 or 32 bit XP, but i need it to run 64 bit server 2003 and i can not get the network adapters to work. I have tried the 64 bit drivers for XP but these are not working. Device manager does not show an error and the device shows a connection but it will not pass traffic.

According to Broadcom's website, the proper drivers should be on the server 2003's install CD.

But there are specific drivers listed for server 2003 IA64 and x86-64/EM64T, also - http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtreme_server.php

If there's no installer and you don't want to run the driver update wizard, you would just unzip them to a temp/install folder, right-click the INF file, and choose Install from the context menu.

I get it say it has a connection but it will not pass traffic. It is not making much sense.

All drivers provide for your system from Dell:

It appears that there is no support for windows server 2003 either 32 or 64 bits, but you should call Dell support, they might help you.
