I just reformatted an old dell, ive installed all the sound/graphics drivers. but for some reason i can't seem to get it to connect to the internet. ive searched and troubleshooted/downloaded driver after driver for over 2 hours and nothing. any ideas?

computer:
dell dimension 8200 although the service tag on dell appears to be an 8250. the driver disk claims its an 8250 also
cpu: pentium 4 @2.66ghz
ram: 2x128mb's
120 gb hard drive.
