We recently reformatted the windows XP and after we did, we soon found out that we didn't have any internet connection.
When I opened the network connections folder, the folder was empty(no internet connection icon, or local area network or anything). I went to the dell support site and downloaded the network driver but it didn't do much. When i checked device manager, there was a yellow ! sign right next to the ethernet driver along with 6 other devices. The computer is Dell Dimension 4700(very old) and we changed the motherboard because it came with RDram or something that apparently cost 500 dollars to upgrade ram(since the company went bankrupt apparently). I don't know the name of the new motherboard, and I was wondering if the network driver is attached to the motherboard and if there is a way to fix this thing. Any help would be appreciated.

PS: also, I was wondering if I bought a Wireless network card, would it solve the problem?
