The situation is that ..... I have laptop Toshiba satellite s4747 which came with Vista.
I downgraded to XP and now many things are not working.

Can someone help me figure things out....

1. Atheros Wireless.....I have downloaded a driver named awlc4030_v4_0_0_1733.zip
After i unzipped it i got some files....i still dunno how to set up a wireless connection.

2. Logitech Mic......I can only use built-in microphone of the laptop. I purchased logitech mic but it is just not working i dunno wot the prob is. Maybe i need a driver. This is the logitech mic i have h.t.t.p://w.w.w.pcrichard.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=60438&parentCategoryId=4&categoryId=110000&subCa tegoryId=140050

midniter,

Hello and welcome to Geekstogo.


To connect to a wireless connection you want to click on start. Then click on connect too. Then you should see a option for wireless.

That should bring up a window letting you know wireless networks in the area. Go ahead and select YOUR wireless network. You will need a wireless router in order for this to work.

As for your logitech mic issue. You want to go Into Control Panel(Click on start then click on control panel). Then click on classic view. Now click on sound and audio devices. That should bring open a new window. Now click on the audio tab. There you should have a dropdown for you mic. Go ahead and select the mic you want to use and click on apply.
