Hey geeks!

Firstly thanks for taking the time to read this post!

I had to reformat and lost all drivers etc. My Ethernet connection is active but its not picking up the signal on my computer, so therfore I installed USB.
I'm now looking to use Ethernet since its better (so I was told).

Apparently I have to install some drivers. Here is a link to the dell website with my PC details etc. Could you point me in the correct direction of which one to download and tell me what else I need to do?

Many Thanks.

Simon :)

Howszit?

The Dell support website does have the drivers for your model, but you may have to update your Java for the Java app to load when you click on Download Drivers. It will let you choose model, or enter your asset number, ask you what op system you want and display the drivers.

Good Luck

I know my model etc, that link should take you to the driver download section. What I wanted to know was which of the drivers I should be downloading.
Just incase you cant see that link, my model is the Dell XPS 600.

Thanks.

you may need to uninstall the USB connection software once the NIC card is active

Ah ok, thats the problem. I no longer have the USB software. So once I remove it I cant reinstall. So I kinda need to make sure that this works. :)
