You might try reinstalling the chipset drivers first...then uninstalling/reinstalling the network drivers.

You didn't provide any data re the system or how you are trying to connect...but the system may support both wired and wireless connections. If so, both drivers (LAN for wired and the wireless drivers) must be installed.

The computer is a Dell Optiplex G260 and I am trying to the internet through a ethernet cable. I loaded the chipset first then there were 19 other network drivers some wireless from Dell I loaded all of these next and opened them. guess things are not right for this computer to work.

You weren't supposed to load...every driver listed for networking...just the one that applies to the components of your system.

That system has differeing configurations of hardware/components...for the various choices that buyers may have made. Only one of those drivers listed at the Dell site...relates to your specific system.

Consult Device Manager or your manual...to see the exact driver you need for your networking capability.
