eMachine T2240

Can anybody help locate a ethernet driver for this machine? I have no network adapters listed in Device Manager other than my usb wifi Belkin. I wanna be able to do away with the wifi part of my network but that cant be done without the ethernet adapter. ( it is onboard and windows does not pick it up, along with any other drivers durin install. ) The eMachine website doesnt carry the driver, I think think the dial up modem driver is whats listed.

Any help is greatful

1) Are you sure it is enabled in BIOS?
2) Which OS are you using?

Did you run the Hardware Vendor Detection Utility ?

Not seen in BIOS? The BIOS doesn't care what OS is installed as it is the in/out system for the hardware to talk to the software. That means that either there is no onboard Ethernet or the onboard Ethernet is no good aka it's dead. Bad news either way.
