hey all, i just did a fresh install of xp on my dell dimension 2400.. i downloaded the broadcom network driver from the dell site but still not able to connect.. i looked in device manager an i see the broadcom driver installed but under that there is a (!) next to ethernet controller.. i tried up dating the driver but i get error saying accton en5251 series chip based fast ethernet adapter the style of the INF is different than what was requested...

I tried looking on line for this particular driver but i only get these driver agents they want me to download.. is there any way to fix this.. by the i do see the 2 lil pc in task bar for the ethernet but it says not plugged an i have the cable plugged in

Did you install the chipset driver first? Go <here> and download the chipset(install) and then Broadcom Driver 3.63 AO3 08/05/2003. Please remove any other drivers installed coming from unknown links.
