Gah, the PC's like ten years old and all I still have is the XP installation CD. :( WiFi was working before the reinstall. The card is separate from the motherboard but there's no brand/model number on it that I can see.

OK since the card is separate then I suspect there should be a drivers disk for that card. Since it is saying there is a newer driver already installed then my question is if the card is actually the intel Pro card or is it a different manufacturer.

Is this your card HERE?
If so then the click on the download tab and you will see the driver for that card is in blue right below the picture. If that is it then the issue is we are installing the wrong driver.

That is great to hear but can you take a look at the Device Manager again and verify that all entries are now not showing any yellow exclamation mark please.
If so then we can work on those missing drivers.

Ok, I will do that when I get back around noon tomorrow (baby's sleeping atm).

Also, I noticed while looking for the system specs and when in the BIOS that some of my memory slots aren't... active. Sorry, I don't know the right terminology. But basically, there are four RAM cards installed. Some were installed later on. I *believe* it was 4GB total, but right now it's showing just over 1GB. BIOS shows that there's four slots, but two of them are "empty." Not sure where to start with this?

Will post the info you requested tomorrow. Thanks again for all your help.
