In my device manager under network adapters i have -1394 Net Adapter-. So, it looks like my driver is there but i cannot connect. I have a broadband connection so no internet connection wizard stuff is needed right? Someone please help -Thanks

Greetings Agentcaviar

You obviously are missing the Eithernet or Wireless Network interface Card (NIC), What you have there is the Firewire/Camera net connections. (For hooking up devices like cameras)

I am betting you have lots of yellow ! (exclaimation points) in device manager.

If correct you have a Dell Latitude D400 laptop. Go to www.Dell.com and get the Wireless and/or Ethernet Drivers appropriate for Gear you have in your laptop.

Or use the disks provided by Dell (usually several application and drivers disks were included) to reload your laptop.

You are going to have to either know or figure out if you have a Broadcom or Intel based Eithernet or Wireless. You probly can figure out which if you plug in your express service tag number on this link. http://support.dell....o...nki=0&s=gen

Good luck
