Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

I had to reinstall the OS for my Insprion 6000 using the dell system CD. I downloaded drivers for the Broadcomm Ethernet controller and the Intel PRO wireless from the dell website and installed them as well as the chipset driver and other necessary drivers. I can connect to my DSL router with either the Broadcomm or the wireless but it doesn't establish a default gateway or an IP address. If I run ipconfig it says "Media disconnected" under network controller but under "Network Connect
