Re: DELL 2350 ethernet controller trouble

Did you reinstall Windows when you put the Win XP disk in? If so, did you reinstall the chipset drivers? Spcifically, which drivers did you reinstall?

Re: DELL 2350 ethernet controller trouble

If your USB ports are not working, it is a sign that the chipset drivers are not installed.

Re: DELL 2350 ethernet controller trouble

If the USB ports work and there are no other problems listed in Device Manager, except for the network card, try downloading the driver from Here. You will have to download in on the computer you are now using to access the internet, then copy it to a CD-R, take the CD-R to the computer with the non-functioning network controller, copy the driver file to the hard disk on that computer, then run it and see if you can correct the problem.
