can't surf after installing new primary hard drive

Jump to solution

I have a dimension 8300, replaced hard drive, installed windows XP and drivers from DELL provided cd's. Everything seems to work fine except I cant connect to dsl.

I dont have any yellow interogation marks in device manager.

Under Network Adaptors, I have : Intel(R) PRO/100 VE nerwork connection (in properties, 'this device is working properly')

I tried reinstalling the DELL provided driver and disabling / enabling device;  no luck

The LAN icon is visible only when my DSL cable is disconnected

 

Any sugestions?   please

Since the operating system was re-installed did you remember to go to drivers and downloads, enter your service tag(DO NOT POST SERVICE TAG here or your post will get deleted, since it contains your personal information), and install these drivers in this order.

Chipset or SMBus driver
