Solved Problem with Ethernet Controller

Post by Jenkins on 7th March 2009, 4:44 pm

I connect to the internet for my laptop through an ethernet cable but my compooty wont recognize it. I was told to look in the hardware manager in the control panel for anything to do with ethernet that has a yellow "!" next to it. And I found that exact thing. So then I updated it. The only problem is is that the updating wizard thing couldn't find an update anywhere. So I was wondering if there is a site that I can go to to get the driver or whatever it is that I need.



By the way:
I'm on a Windows XP Home Edition Dell Inspiron 600m
Rolling back the update is not an option because I had to reinstall XP after a little issue I had.

Thank You

I need more inforamtion on the card you are using.

Start >> My Computer >> Right click on Properties >> Systems Properties >> Hardware tab.

Click Device Manager >> in dialog screen, expand the Network Adapters device from the list.

Post the details back here.

Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200 BG Network Connection is the only thing under the network part. I'm not sure if that's the card. The actual ethernet controller icon is under other devices, I don't think that it is installed on my computer yet but I might be wrong.

Okay, so i downloaded it, ran the program, it extracted it and then i went into the device manager, right clicked on the ethernet controller thing, did upgrade, then upgrade from specific location then i chose the place that it was extracted to (C/dell/R11blahblah/DRIVERS) and it gave me the same error message. what should i do know?

Does the internet work?

Try this: Start >> Control Panel >> Network Connections >> Right click your local area connection >> Properties >> uncheck the Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity option.
