Ok, so I had a couple viruses on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite A105-S4094) and ended up reformatting it. I don't have the original CD that came w/ the laptop but I thought I would be OK without it as I can get drivers from manufacturer websites.

So i reformat and put windows xp professional sp3 on it and first thing i noticed was the wireless icon in the taskbar didnt show up. Ended up going on a different computer and finding about 3 drivers for my laptop and downloaded one which ended up allowing me to connect wirelessly to my router but it doesnt seem to be working right because i lose connection after a couple mins( or I think when i stop using the internet for a little while). Tried downloading another driver and nothing changed, but I'm not sure if I removed the first driver completely and would appreciate any help yall can give me.

Refine your search by selecting XP operating system and Wi-Fi
It will give you 4 choices
