alright, i know it is possible. here is the premise:

i just got my computer back from best buy (needed fixing) and i had to reinstall windows xp on it. i did so, and now i'm having some major problems creating a wireless connection.

i have a linksys wireless router, and a wireless networking card plugged into my computer, but for some reason in my network connections, on the left side (where it says "create new connection" and "set up home or small office network", which by the way are my only two options), it has no option to create a wireless connection as it did before (before my computer was fixed, that is). i know for a fact that when i created my wireless connection first, that is how i did it (through that option).

also, when bridging a connection (or whatever it's called) i had no option to choose a wireless connection. same problem in the "set up home or small office network" thing.

I had this same problem ..... after i re-installed windows. Look under device managers and see if all the devices required to run your internet are on that llist. Ethernet adapter etc etc need to be installed.. else you might have problems
