Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8250 PC Desktop ?

The network adapter in a dell dimension PC running XP home

\015 I dont see the network adapter in a dell dimension 8250 PC, running XP "home" . The on-board ethernet socket lights up when I connect the network cable. In "Network Connections", the LAN connection does not get listed, so I cannot tell what are the properties for the ethernet adapter.In Device Manager, the "Ethernet controller" displays a "?" and under "Properties it says that the device driver is not installed. I tried to find the driver online from another computer but I need to have the adapter name which I cannot get.I got the computer as a hand-me down so I don't have the original disks.\015
