I'm using Windows ME and don't have the Wireless Link icon when I go into Control Panel. When I looked in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM folder the file Irprops.cpl wasn't there, however I have since found it in the zipped folder C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\NET3.CAB and extracted it to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM which is where the other Control Panel Extension files are. I hoped that when I rebooted, the Wireless Link Icon would appear in Control Panel but it hasn't. I can't launch the applet by clicking directly on the file either which I can with most of the other .cpl files. In short I have no idea what to do next.

Hope someone out there has some ideas.

Go into the device manage and remove the NIC from the list reboot your computer. Hopefully XP will see it and offer to reinstall it.
