I recently moved and I am trying to connect my windows xp desktop with wifi. I followed the this you tube video;  https://youtu.be/AwzYwz7aGho and when I got to the part where I'm supposed to right click on Lan or high speed internet, I have one option and it says "network cable unplugged, fire.....Intel ® Pro/100ve network" and if I right click on that I get the same box shown on the video, however my choices are ' Disable, bridge connection, create short cut, rename or properties' "View available wireless networks" doesn't show up. How do I connect ?
