Question can't get ethernet controller installed

i have a dell dimension 8250
i did a fresh xp install b/c my comp was going to ****
completely formatted the hard drive....

and i installed xp again, and also all the drivers discs i could find that i still have


however when i go to
my computer
manage
system tools
device manager
other devices

it shows ethernet controller is missing.... with a giant annoying ?

i have downloaded and installed
broadcom diag utility- netxtreme gigabit ethernet
broadcom driver- netxtreme gigabit ethernet
intel diag utility- 10/100 LOM
intel driver- 10/100 LOM

i was able *to my knowledge* complete installation on the first three

however when i downloaded the last one, i went to install

unzipped the file and it took me to install directions for xp
which is what i am running

but then it says i gotta have the disk inserted to install the program
so it's kinda like the download from dell is only a readme file

i'm begging you guys don't give up on me like other forums... i gotta get this desktop working again....

but those are all the steps i have taken so far

any questions just ask

but

HELP ME AHHHHHH:freak:

Are you sure that the chipset driver is installed? If not, it can be found here.

How about running a little everest home which will tell us which of the choices dell gave you for possible onboard ethernet it actually is.

Intel 82557/82558/82559 EtherExpress PRO/100B Adapter
Broadcom BCM V.90 56k Modem

Drivers and Downloads

Should be those drivers right there. According to Everest you have a Dimension 8250 and searching thru the Dell website those are the drivers they have for the network device.
