Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop, around 5-6 years old. It is connected to the internet through a cable modem then through a wireless router, but it is connected with a LAN line. If I try to connect to the internet, it finds no connection, although it recognizes that it is connected to the internet. I have two wireless laptops that can still connect fine, no problems, and I even tried connecting the ethernet cable directly to the desktop, bypassing the router, and another ethernet cable, no


Answers :

First, try uninstalling then reinstalling the ethernet device. If that fails,try replacing it. Ethernet cards can be found for around $25.
Sounds like the actual ethernet adaptor (hardware) may be out but first I would run a really good spyware and see if it is infected. This one works really great (see link at bottom) although, it is not free but you can download, installl and it will run scan and tell you if you have malware (which is why it will not connect). It only cost 30 bucks to purchase which is reasonable to take off the malware and get back online. Beats a techs fee.

\015\012If there is no sign of malware, then the hardware is out and you will need to replace. These can be purchased at Wal-mart for under 60 bucks. Hope this helps!
