"windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. if you have an adapter you will need to re-install the driver"
"ethernet controller doesn't have a driver"
I recently bought a dell 380 and can't get it to connect to the internet. (I am using a hard wired connection that works fine with my other pcs)
I have re-installed windows 7 but this hasn't helped. I still get the above messages.
I have tried the "NetAdapter Repair All In One" but I don't have the .NET Framework 4.0.
I may have got a code 28 error at some point (I've been working on this a while) and I can remember at some point extracting this info from the pc
which was supposed to help me find a driver.
At this point I wonder if there is a physical problem.
I would be grateful for any advice.
