Windows 7: Dell Vostro 230 Ethernet Port Not Working, Showing No Driver Installed

Dell Vostro 230 Ethernet Port Not Working, Showing No Driver Installed

I recently installed a new 1TB Hard Drive into my Dell Vostro 230. I re-installed Windows 7 64 bit and everything went well besides I can't get the Ethernet port to work. When I run diagnostics on it it comes back to "Install Driver for your network adapter". It doesn't appear the driver for adapter is installed and I've tried to install ones from Dells support site, but that hasn't worked. Any help would be appreciated!

I see three entries on Dell support under Network. Did you try the Broadcom 57xx gigagit driver?

First order of business. Edit your post and delete the service tag number. Dell considers that personal (private) information and should not be posted.

Which driver did you download? I see two Broadcom drivers I would install the latest version. Be sure to follow the Dell installation instructions for the driver.

You're a scholar and a gentleman! I did have that particular driver downloaded already, but the link you sent actually had instructions which helped me install. Thank a lot!

p.s. There's only one Broadcom driver listed. The other is a Broadcom utility.
