Well, this is a problem on my mum's laptop, as I use a Desktop PC...

She played a game that my little brother installed and when the game ended, she suffered some problem- lines were appearing on the screen, and making it impossible to do anything.

So, as the laptop is now out of warranty, I thought i'd have a go .. and we both decided that using the XP Recovery disk was a good option; so we did, we re-installed XP Home Edition SP2.

But now, where previously the wireless connections icon would be in the corner- it isn't.

There is no wireless connection in the network connections, the wireless switch IS on, and i'm pretty stuck for what to do.

Also, we had a small network between the PC and laptop- and I seem unable to re-connect that, too.

Any ideas on how to get wireless internet up and running on the laptop?

All ideas appreciated.

Thanks,
Jay

Additional Information:

The Laptop is a Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro; makes no sense to me, but that's what it says!

Also, Device Manager shows the following with Yellow Exclamation Marks:
In 'Other Devices':
- Multimedia Audio Controller
- Network Controller
- PCI Simple Communications Controller
- Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

You need to install the network drivers.

Actually, it looks like from the list you provided that you need to reinstall all the drivers for the laptop...which is always the case when you do a reinstall of Windows.

The drivers are all located at the following site:

http://support.fujitsu-siemens.com/com/sup.../downloads.html

I can help you get the exact drivers you need, but I need the version of Amilo Pro that you have. There should be a "V1xxx, V2xxx, V3xxx, etc." Can you tell me what version notebook it is?

You'll see a section SELECT PRODUCT

Then under the "Select your operating system", select Windows XP Home


Your drivers are on this next page...click the little checkbox that says "show all drivers".....download all of the drivers and install them.
