I recently moved and switched from cable to satellite internet. When I tried to connect my modem via the ethernet port, the error message comes up that windows does not detect any wired or wireless network cards installed on my machine. I have a dell optiplex gx520 desktop. I know the modem works because it works on my laptop. Please advise

Do you see any Network Adapters, (other than 1394), in Device Manager?

Click Start > Run, type in devmgmt.msc and press [Enter].

Click the little "[+]" next to Network adapters.

What are the name(s) of the adapters in there? (If you see "1394 Net Adapter", ignore it. That's Firewire).

Do any of the other Network adapter(s) have a "?" or "!" next to them. If so, try reinstalling the driver(s) for it|them.
