Help Installing network adapter for dell inspiron 8600

\015 I wanted to return my dell to the way it was when I first bought it so I inserted the installation disk. Now it is not working nearly as good. I am trying to connect to the internet but it is telling me that I have no network adapter. Please help.\015

Answers :

If you just purchased this recently and are retuning it, don;t worry about conecting to the INternet.
Just sxend it back. The Dell techs will do a complete refresh of the sytem before they sell it as a refurb unit, so don;t sweat this.
You need the driver for the Network Adapter. There are two ways to get it: Dell normally also supplies another disk that says "Drivers loaded on your system". But the best way to get the current driver is to go into device manager. Scroll down until you see network adapter. Click on the "+" to open it and right click on the device. Then click on install drivers. That should do it...If you have any questions let me know.
