The problem occurred only after I reinstalled XP onto the laptop, due to various ongoing problems within it. The drivers were however lost, and I have done my best to relocate drivers for the laptop: Modem, LAN, WLAN, Sound, Video, Cam, Chipset, CPU, etc. and the laptop itself seems to function alright.
The problem arose when I tried to setup the WLAN on the laptop. The desktop computer is running fine from a BELKIN 802.11g WiFi router, as is another computer in our house. (Not one I own) Anyway i have installed the driver for the WAN card in my laptop, but when i try searching for wireless networks in the area..... nothing. After clicking properties for "Wireless Network Connections" as instructed by IT technitions, the tabs that come up are: General, Authentication, and Advanced. Should there not be another TAB; such as Wireless Networks?
Any help regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated
