Hi,

I clean installed Windows XP Home yesterday on my Dell Dimension 2350 because it had a lot of malware.

I got everything restored, except my broadband connection from Comcast.

I've been searching up drivers for the modem, an RCA DHG536, and none work so far.

If you guys have any other ways of configuring the connection again, that'd be appreciated.

Thanks

Have you tried this one?

Also, next time it would be handy to keep the CD that normally comes with a modem..

use a sofware like win zip or izarc to unzip the file and install the driver.

I unzipped it with 7zip and it wasn't very helpful for my model, it was for a different one.

It might be somewhere else.

all your driver from dell http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/di... i would suggest you to load all the one you use on that system in a file and burn it on a cd.


I've already reinstalled WinXP Home and it's all working fine.

I had SP1 and downloaded all the appropriate drivers from the Dell disc as well.

I just need the driver from the disc that Comcast kept with them when giving me the broadband connection.

Should I contact them for a disc?
