I just reinstalled Windows XP Home for a Dell PC, Dimension 4550. My problem is that I am unable to connect to the internet, even though the ethernet is connected and lit up.

I checked my device mananger and I am missing (yellow question mark) the following 2 drivers:

  1. ethernet controler,Location: BUS 2, DEVICE 8 FUNCTION 0
  2. USB device, location 0 (USB device)

Since I no longer have the installation CD that came with my PC, I went to the website and downloaded and installed the drivers

  • R56237
  • R56238
  • R60203

to no avail and I am still unable to connect to the internet. I am hopeing that someone can tell me which driver to download in order for me to get internet access via my ethernet/router.

Try downloading/installing the two drivers listed for wired Ethernet, the Broadcom driver (look like you already did this one) and the Intel driver (R52043).

What is the service tag for this PC? (there should be one or two stickers on the case) – sawdust Jun 15 '11 at 2:15
