Hi! After a week of computer issues, I finally had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows XP. Now, I'm in the process of reinstalling all of my programs and I can't figure out how to get back into my wireless network. I have my DSL modem on a desktop and I have a Linkskys wireless router. I tried doing the wireless connection setup on my laptop, but I'm really not good at this. When I originally set it up, I had to be walked through step by step. Is there anyone that could help me? I can try to give you whatever info you need! Thanks.

if you did a restore, you need drivers for chipset, nic, audio and video for that specific machine.

you gotta get a wired connection before the wireless.
