Have you tried the Windows Vista 32bit driver?

Dell did not write Windows 7 drivers for that model of laptop.

yes i did, but never worked. this was the driver i tried : Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller. i have downgraded the system to Vista ultimate 32 bit i can get all the drivers except for the Network controller, wireless driver am able to install. could there be issues with this driver with this version of Windows (Vista ultimate) ?

If Dell can't help, you probably need to get a driver from Marvell.

Or from the installed WiFi card manufacturer? Do you have a WiFi card installed?

WR2 Thanks for sharing your ideas with me, i just discovered that the the network port is damaged due to someone who cut the network cable without removing it from the termination points one point being the laptop network port. I appreciate so much. thanks man!!

I never would have suspected a problem like that.
Just when you think you might have heard it all before - something new and really strange pops up. 'Hardware butchery'.

i tell you, i tried all i could and i had to load windows from windows Vista home premium to Windows 7 ultimate and it never made sense that just this driver was a problem. i thought of opening the laptop and discovered the problem. now am using the usb network adapter it working fine
