I recently did a system restore on my computer. It is windows xp and a dell. Every thing went great with the restore except that I have no internet now. I have it connected through an ethernet cable, and plugged into a router. Does anyone have any ideas?

I honestly don't know, how would I be able to check. If this is the case, how would I go about fixing it?

Thanks

ok yes I believe it does have to do with the drivers, I see a few with question marks on them. I've heard you can download them from the dell website. I tried myself but can't seem to get it right. Do you think you could walk me through this.

Thanks again.

I can try.
I need to know your Dell service tag number and what drivers have errors listed.
