and make sure your wireless device is configured and working properly. Go to "services" and make sure Windows wireless "0" is set to automatic. If both are there, under Start/Settings/Network Connections, your device should show but won't be configured yet but you should be able to click on it and browse for wireless signals. You should be able to put its icon in the tray from there as well so you can check its status. This is just for starters if you haven't checked these already.
So I just had to format my hard drive and reinstall windows on my dell laptop (for the 4th time, for some reason they keep sending me REALLY bad hard drives). Anyway, this time, when I reinstalled windows, my Wireless connection isn't... there. Under Network Connections, there isn't even a option for Wireless internet. Like I mentioned, I have previously installed windows several times, and I never had a problem with this before. I looked though my CD's and couldn't find one for the wireless, and I don't remember using one before to set it up. It connects to the internet fine though cables, but how can I reinstall Wireless on it?
