I reinstalled Windows XP Pro a month ago. Then i was living in a residential hall that had ethernet internet. My XP pro CD came with SP1, and came with a CD for SP2. I installed SP2, but i could no longer connect to the internet through the ethernet (i could without SP2), so a residential hall computer advisor told me to uninstall SP2. I did this and was able to connect to the internet, and everything is fine. Now, i am at home...where i have a wireless connect (from cable internet). However, i am no longer able to connect to this wireless network. Whenever I enable the Wireless Network Connection on my labtop, it automatically connects to some connection in my neighborhood (and its a poor connection), instead of connecting to the network that is running from my wireless hub in my basement. Even worse, when i try to view available wireless networks, was comes up is a window taht entirely gray (as in nothing is available to click on except cancel). I'm not sure if i'm explaining this well. I doesnt show anything but only gives me the option to cancel and exit that View Available wireless Connections window. I know it nothing to do with the actual connection, b/c my sister is able to connect to the wireless network. I'm wondering if there is anything i can do to enable my labtop to be able to see available wireless connections in the area and be able to actually connect to my wireless connection instead of automatically connecting to some wireless connection. Thanks in advanced for all your help!
