Alright.. I have a netxtreme gigabit ethernet card in my computer, it won't show up in the device manager, recently got a new motherboard so I can install it from the dell resource cd and I want to use it... resource cd won't start up because I don't have a dell board anymore.. so. How can I fix this? where can I find the right driver?

Someone please help me out here!

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 in case you were wondering.

Did a search at driverguide.com and found what you need.

You have to create an account but it's free....just use an email address that you don't care to get a lot of spam at.

Now, will it actually work? even though the card doesn't show up in the device manager?

The card is in the slot in the computer, it doesn't show up in the device manager at all!, I just need to know if it is going to work or not. I got a driver from broadcom.com and its a folder with 3 files in, and I dont know where to put them, or even how to install them, it came in a zip file and there are three small files in it..
Where do they go?

Is there any yellow marks under network adapters in device manager?
If so this is your card just dosen't have correct drivers installed.

If one of those 3 files have an ".inf" extension then this is what windows will use to install the driver.....Just unzip them to a folder(remember the folder)....If a yellow marked adapter is under network adapters then right click it an select update driver and guide the wizard to the folder where you unzipped those 3 files.

If no listing under network adapters then go to control panel and select install new hardware and let windows search for it...if windows cant find it then try to install it manually through the wizard...........

if none of this works maybe you could pull card from slot and try another slot or just reseat it.
