Windows XP doesn't always install the drivers required for the hardware to work properly. Go to Dell.com, service and support, enter your service tag number and get the drivers needed.
Hi I have a dell insprion laptop that I have had for years. I moved on to a different laptop. However, for my son's birthday I gave him my old laptop, bought and had installed a new hardrive so that the computer had nothing on it. It does have Windows XP. I figured when we got home we would just turn it on and our network would show up and we would choose it, get our password in and ....fresh start.
Well, when we turned it on, no network options showed up and I can't figure out what the next step is. Do I need to get the newest Base Station MN 700 disc for our Base Station and install that so he can join our wireless network? What am I missing? I am so clueless that I don't know how clueless this question will come across!
