Default No LAN connection...

Okay, I don't even understand this problem, but I have a Dell Inspiron 600m that I just inhabited from my brother. I use wireless to connect to the internet, but I tried plugging in a network cable and nothing happened. It seems as if the network port somehow got uninstalled or something. I tried downloading drivers from Dell's website, and nothing. I have no idea what to do.

CPU Q9300 @ 2.5GHz, for now
GPU HD4850 512MB
Display X2Gen 19" LCD
Mobo Biostar TPower I45
Mem 2 GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800
CaseApollo NZXT Black
Cooling Xigmatek something

Default Re: No LAN connection...

the port probably failed; physically speaking.

You could try drivers, just look up the model number on dell's website, but it sounds like you've already done that.

I guess you could just always use the wireless or use a PCMCIA card.
