    God knows how this happened, but I've been yanking my hair out attempting to fix it.

    I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 9300.

    Upon restart a few days ago, I was unable to connect to any wireless connection. My Wireless Network Connection Properties box looked as such:


    After re-installing the Intel/Pro Wireless 2915ABG program/drivers/etc., when I click on "Configure" it goes to the adapter's properties screen. (woohoo!)

    However, I have no TCP/IP protocol. I click on "Install", choose "Protocol" and receive the following error:

    "Could not add the requested component. The error is: The system cannot find the file specified".

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's making me positively nuts.

    Thank you!

    Have you downloaded the latest drivers for your wireless network card. I had the same prob with my Dell Inspiron 9300 and just downloaded the lastest drivers and it works fine.
