Hello! and thanks in advance :)

I decided to reformat a computer of mine that was running poorly, (Dell Dimension 3000 desktop that I had formatted and installed windows 2000) This computer was connected to the internet and worked fine pre-format

I formated the computer and re-installed Windows 2000

I installed the drivers which I downloaded from Dell's Drivers & downloadsincluding the network drivers and chip set drivers

Neither my IE or Firefox will connect to the internet and I cannot ping google.com from my cmd

The device manager shows my Network Adapter (Intel® PRO/100 VE Network connection) and its working properly

I am sure its something I am missing, unfortunately my networking is weak :) so I just cant figure it out!

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks again

I'd spend 15 bucks and I'd buy new ethernet card.
