I recently purchased a dell laptop 6000. I was told that the driver was acidently removed. when I downloaded it I received a message that the adapter was not installed. now I can not get on the internet and I am getting a message "Internal configuation is inconsistent. please restart the machine to resolve the problem." what should I do?

the driver is Intel PROset/wireles

My Inspiron 6000 used a Broadcom 802.11n Wireless, not Intel Proset. What is the Service Tag for the laptop? Use that at the Dell support website to find the correct driver.

Before you install it, open Device Manager, expand Network Adapters then right click on the wireless network adapter and select Uninstall. Reboot and see if XP finds the right driver. If not, download the right one from the Dell web site and install it.
