Followed this excellent tutorial (the part dealing with OS setup for XP) without much trouble, up to Step 70. At that point, my system does not generate screens or options that match the tutorial so the next 10 steps or so are greek to me. Here is step 70, which works fine.

70. Click the OK button. Taking you back to the “Wireless Network Connection Properties” screen.

But now, Step 71, I don't get why I Do Not See what is described.....What am I doing wrong? There isn't any "Wireless Networks" tab, no box with a check.....etc

71. Now click the “Wireless Networks” tab Verify that there is a Check in the box for “Use Windows to configure my wireless network Settings”, Verify that there are no SSID Broadcasts listed in the PREFERRED NETWORKS box (if there is select it and click the REMOVE button).

So I can't follow the directions for 71, 72, 73, and I'm sure this is where all of my troubles with networking are coming from...

Maybe my system has been configured for some other program to configure wireless settings, how do I fix this?

thanks , sorry to be long....

Its been 35 minutes, I've used the time to figure it out myself. Turns out there IS a simple way to turn the wireless settings back over to windows, & now I can proceed with the rest of this tutorial. (BTW, it really is nicely done, I hope it finally solves my longstanding network problems with this laptop (DELL Precision M90) If not, I'll be back.....
