I got a computer from a family member, I did a reformat by putting in the windows disc and deleted everything. I reinstalled Windows XP with no problem.

However....now the Internal wireless adapter which was installed doesn't show up anywhere on the computer. I even opened the computer up, pulled out the card, and put it back in...still nothing. I KNOW it worked before I reformatted. I do not have a CD for this, don't know if there was one, and have no clue what brand it is (might be link-something or other)

Any tricks for getting this to work?

*EDIT* Went into device manager and updated the driver after connecting it to the internet.

Try checking the chips. often you can locate teh drivers that way or you can look up the FCC ID and that should give you the manufacturer.
