    Hey, just reinstalled vista. First thing i did was try to connect to net, " This computer does not have a wireless network adaptor installed and configured" Will this be on teh driver and utilities CD i got with my computer? or must i get it from an external source?

    Thanks

    As Joe said,it might be on the disc.If not and this is really a driver issue,I would go to the pc manufacturer's web site and download the wireless adapter driver for your make and model pc.(And I am assuming that you did have wireless capability before)
    I would also take a look in device manager at the network adapter section to see if it shows any error indications for those adapters.
    Generally when things go wrong with devices over a re-install,it is a driver issue.
