Hello,

Have you tried downloading the drivers from the Packard Bell website? You will need to download from another computer and copy them across (by USB stick for example). If you have only just freshly installed XP then you will want to download and install all drivers for complete functionality.

Cheers

Just installed them drivers, thanks.

No wireless is being picked up, under "Network Connections" in windows there is just "Broadband" and "Local Area Connection".

How do I get the wireless to appear?

If the wireless device doesn't show up then you may not have a wireless device?

Only other thing I can think of is to turn the wireless switch on, the laptop may have a physical switch along the outside somewhere.
