    yes iv did it all.
    i installed net framework from the optional download section and the driver actually installed but it made no difference.
    went to properties on the divice and it had a code 10."this device is unable to start"
    so then of to the dell site were it scans your pc for the system specs/hardware/software...ect.and it only found the ethernet under network adapters??.
    im guessing that the card my be broke.it was fine before i re-installed xp.......any thoughts??
