    Hello all,

    I just reinstalled Windows XP, with Service Pack 2. Now, for some reason, the computer doesn't seem to realize it has a wireless card, and does not automatically join networks. Then, when I go to "Network Setup Wizard", I get a "cannot find network hardware" error.... what happened?

    Thank you all,
    Michael

    Hi there. What is the exact make and model of your system? You might need to reinstall the hardware using updated drivers. I can find those for you.

    It was a 1.5 GHz Dell Inspiron 2200 with a Celeron processor.

    You need the driver for the network card.In some cases like[ net gear] they say to remove the card & re install it then install the driver
