I have two friends, husband and wife.

The wife has a Lap-Top with Vista on it and it connects automatically
to the local wifi network.
The husband has an old IBM Thinkpad, he has recently had an overhaul
and has had 2000 installed, it will not pick up the local wifi network?
What has to be done with 2000 to enable this facility?

Thank you.

Mike.

If by overhaul, you mean reformat, you might have to reinstall some drivers. Try looking for any yellow exclamation points in Device Manager
