    Hello there,
    I have a Toshiba Satellite A65-S126 notebook that just bought, it was running Microsoft XP Home so I upgraded it to XP Pro. Now my problem is I no longer have a wireless network tab in the properties box of my wireless network connections nor is there anything wireless in the control panel. This notebook is using Atheros Super G for the wireless. I have tried reinstalling the wireless zero configuration and I have made sure that the service is set to run automatic. Still I have no wireless tab. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am at my wits end.
    Thanks
    Richard F.

    Go Start>Run and type in msconfig. In the Services tab, make sure there's a tick in the Wireless Zero Configuration box. If not, put one in. click OK, restart and tick the "don't show me" box, then OK.

    Thank you for the reply,
    I have fixed the problem, actually all I did was install service pack 2 for XP. Thanks for the msconfig tip though, this is something that I will remember.
