Re: Dimension 8400 Ethernet Adapter Driver

Thanks, but the only drivers there are Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Integrated Controller.  My paperwork from 2 years ago calls out an Intel PRO/1000 Integrated Ethernet PCI NIC.  This network adapter is on my motherboard.

Re: Dimension 8400 Ethernet Adapter Driver

thanks for the efforts!!
The Broadcom drivers on the Dell website were the ones.  I guess Broadcom works with Intel?
who knows....at least it's working now.

Re: Dimension 8400 Ethernet Adapter Driver

I had a hard drive failure and ran into the same situation when I was reinstalling all the drivers.  My paperwork said I have a Intel Pro 1000 Integrated PCI NIC card.  I couldnt find anything on the dell website for it so I used the Broadcom 570X download #R87461 that was recommended for 8400 series.  I loaded it on a CD, and popped it into the computer, and bingo... instant ethernet.  Everything works now.  Smiley Very Happy
