Can you access the internet on a friends computer? Try and find the driver on his/hers and save it to a cd. I thought windows has drivers for it already but i maybe mistaken.

Your post is more than a bit cryptic!

Are you on another computer now? I presume you've looked in device manager and the network adapter has a yellow question mark. Do you know what the network card is, the make and part number?

What kind of internet connection do you have? One thing I do before setting up a machine is to look in device manager and get the network card information and download the drivers to a floppy from the card makers website, since you obviously can't access the website when the drivers aren't installed.

If you have to, look on the card for the part number and make, go to the makers website and DL the correct drivers to a floppy and install them.. The installation may take any number of forms, from using an .inf file to just running an executable.

You may need to open the case and look at the card, if it's a card. Many computers have onboard network adapters. In that case it would be about an inch square and near the network connector.

Howdy:

Download a program called Belarc Advisor from www.belarc.com (it's small enough to fit on a floppy)..

Now, run that on your system and post the log here!!

I've been looking at your machine specs and I can't tell whether you have one or two network devices, it says a card and also onboard adapter. And whether it is D-Link or Linksys. And I don't find the machine listed at NEC, it may be listed at Packard Bell, or even Radio Shack, if it is both are pretty good at driver support. If you could clear up whether it is one or two, or D-Link or Linksys that would help. I'll check some more later.

HI

I used Belarc and under network it said " not detected " . So ten i used Everest and under " PCI/PnP Adapter " it said " D-link DFE-540 TX ProFast 10/100 Ethernet Adapter ". I don't know if that is teh model of my network card. If it is please post the link to its driver here.
