Did you use the Dell software to rebuild your laptop or did you just put a fresh copy of XP on there? Sounds like you may need to reinstall the driver for your ethernet card.

yup sounds like a driver issue.... go into device manager and look to see if it is installed correctly..

start/controll panel/system/hardware tab/device manager... look for any yellow ? marks

Even with the included restore disks, sometimes your still don't get Ethernet drives. Try to install it from the disk manually, as it is probably there and not automatically stalled. HP does it, Compaq does it, Gateway does it, and I wouldn't be suprised to see it with Dell.

i used the xp and dell discs that came with my dell. searched and searched and couldnt find the driver. i do have the yellow warning on the ethernet controller. i spent over 3 hours getting my computer up to date and still nothing. will give a shot with the dell link. dont want to deal with durka durka bob and his nonsense.
