This a generic question that I hope someone can help with: I have a Dell 8250 that I have just re-formatted. I can not get online with it. It does not have the network adapter necessary to do this. i found a downloaded file that seems to be a driver, but not sure if it the correct one. I seem to remember being on the phone with Dell Tech Support in 2006. The file name is: Intel 10/100 LOM Driver Version A04. Once it has been extracted and installed, the readme instructions say the following: To reinstall the NIC driver for Windows XP, perform the following steps: 1. Click Start, right click the My Computer icon, click Properties. 2. Click the Hardware tab, click the Device Manager button. 3. Click the + next to Network Adapters. Herein lies the problem: There is no listing for NETWORK ADAPTERS! Can anyone help with this? This machine is definitely out of date, but i need to keep it for another few months, if possible. If I can not get online with it though, it will be pretty much useless. Any ideas or help would be appreciated. Thanks.
