    Hi. I have a problem with my wireless connection. The tab under network connections does NOT show wireless connection. This happened after I reinstalled winxp. I installed the wireless driver but it did not work. I can only connect to the internet using the wired connection. What should I do?

    Install SP3 and other critical Windows updates. Then make sure you have the latest chipset, networking and other (in that order) drivers from your PC manufacturer's web site.

    From where did you download the driver?

    It should be either a self-extracting self-installing .exe file or else a package (maybe a .zip) that contains all the necessary files. Maybe the download was corrupted; try downloading again.
