Hiya,

I have a dell dimension 2350 and a intergrated 440x broadcom ethernet port and it does not seem to want to even recognise that it is there I have tryed to install the drivers several times and each time it has installed then opened a command prompt window and abruptly ended ?!? I whether this is because it has finished installing or not I dont know all I know is that after it does this nothing changes :( I dunno whether it is because I have service pack 2 installed or whether its because it just can't recognise the port itself?? I would love some help on this because once I get it working I can connect my xbox through it :) ty for your time :D

Hello,

Try this 1.

Download the drivers from the manufacture website.

Click on the below link and download the file

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=DIM_PNT_CEL_2350&catid=-1&impid=-1

Note: Some devices may not function properly if the drivers are

installed out of order. For more information, click on the below link.

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/driver_install_order?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~lt=print

Try installing the "Chipset" Driver first and then install your network drivers.

Good Luck.

unfortunatly it just keeps going through the setup as usual then at the end when the instalation bar is full and it says removing backup files, please wait, for a split second command prompt appears and it just closes both the command prompt and the instalation program :( ??

Hello,
Click on Start --> Run --> type devmgmt.msc and click on OK. Is there any yellow mark in the device manager. Can you see your network adapter in the device manager ?

Hello,
Go to BIOS and check whether onboard LAN is enabled or not.
