I have a Dell Demension 8300 (Dell tag: J1LQ731 )(Just reinstalled Windows XP SP1.) I have tried to download the drivers on Dell's site but all I get is something about Broadcom. I tried downloading that driver and it didn't do anything. So if you could help me find the drivers that I need it would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
