Is it an internal wireless network adapter or a PCMCIA card or USB adaptor,

Go to the Laptop manufactures site for the drivers.

Cant help much more without more info like make and model of laptop if its an internal adaptor, if its an external adaptor (Belkin TrueMobile Wireless) go to belkin site for the drivers.

^Wasn't able to find any drives to download.

Isn't there a connectivity app in Windows XP? I remember before I formated it, it had a wireless connection check and would find connections nearby, it would pick up my router an my neighbors router but it was automatically detected. Now, I don't see that small app in the taskbar

?

Im not good at networking at all so I'm trying to learn. I also have an old desktop I would like to connect to my router as well

Lets see if you have any errors in the device manager.
  • Go to Start -> Run.
  • In the Box, type in "devmgmt.msc".
  • Now look in that window, can you find any "?".
  • Please tell me which devices are marked with a yellow "?".

Also out of curiosity. Why don't you install SP2 instead of SP1?

Regards,
Olrik
