Hello, I hope I can find some help here. I am getting desperate! I just reformmated my hard drive due to a nasty virus. I have a DELL Dimension 2400 desktop system. I am not new to reformatting, I did it over 2 years ago on the same computer and had no complications whatsover. However, for some reason after this reformat, my internet connection is not working. I used the original XP sp 2 disc with product code and assumed all the drivers are on there for the network adaptor that is on my computer. I have even used the tools cd that came with the computer and it detects the network when I run that CD. I have checked my device manager and there are yellow marks beside the network and some other objects. I have tried enabling them/uninstalling-reinstalling/disable everything. I even tried installing my wiress connection via a usb port, but it still cant connect to the internet. I called AT&T my service provider but they wouldnt help because I am using a netgear modem router. And I called Netgear but they wouldnt help because I am past warranty period. But, none of that matters because I know its not a problem with the internet istself or the modem because I am on another computer in the house just fine...thats how I am sending this post. My problem is this...everything I read tells me to download drivers again. But, how can I download drivers when I can't get on the internet from that computer? I tried saving the driver to a mass storage device or burning it to cd but neither plan worked...when I tried to open it up on the messed up computer it would not recognize the program?? I really feel like an idiot, but I need help...someone please respond.. Thanks!
