Solved Dell Inspiron 2500 Wired Network Problem

Post by Windows.7.Tester on Thu Jul 30, 2009 12:14 am

Hi, I found a Dell Inspiron 2500 in my closet, and decided to try it out.

So, it has internet explorer and used to connect to the internet through dial-up connect, but obviously I have upgraded and have Comcast.

When I plug in my ether net cord and click on internet explorer, it just says that it can not find the page.

Why does it not let me go on the internet?

Can someone please help me.

Well sense it has already connected to the internet before, it just connected through dial-up, shouldn't all the internet drivers and stuff already be downloaded and installed?

Yeah, it should be together with Windows since you're using a Dell PC. Just to confirm is your modem and router (if you use a router) properly connected to each other?
