Hello,
We lost our hard drive on our Dell laptop and had to reload everything (eek!). Now we do not have a WiFi Connection setup and cant use our WiFi. There is no option for WiFi at all. We are basically starting from scratch. Anyone have any ideas how we can get our WiFi connection system back?? Or find it?!
Thanks in advance!!
Debbie

First off, please remove your email address to avoid unwanted contact.

Ok...

Did you restore your computer using the Dell restore disk, or did you install XP using a store bought disk?
Sounds like it's just that the driver for the wireless card is not installed. If you use the asset tag number on your computer and visit the dell support site, you will be able to download the correct wifi driver. Then all you have to do is install it.

Thanks, Makai,
We used the Dell disks. We did notice that some programs were not installing and had to go back and redo them, so this is what we will do today. I appreciate the help.
