I use Windows XP Pro and for some reason, I can't enable WLAN to get internet access. I have an HP Laptop, but since I can't go on the web, I am forced to use my iPod to type this. I apoligize for any typos or mistakes. I really want my internet back.

Oop, I forgot, XP doesn't detect my network card, so if you guys know a solution, that would be great!

Have you installed the appropriate drivers?

Have you ever had wireless connectivity with this system?

System manufacturer and model?

Drivers... Can't find them.

Wireless? Yeah, originally had Vista and Ubuntu.

HP - Maker

Already tried that... borrowed a friends computer. However, I only installed the Network and Internet Access. Should I install the others as well? If so, you must wait, I have got school.

I think this is the one you want.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hi -
Just an extra - Control Panel > Network Connections -
Do you have any items listed there, even if they show Network cable unplugged , (or similar wording) -
Also have you tried > Open Internet Explorer (must be I.E.) > Tools (top line {if you do not see tools press Alt key}) > Internet Options (the bottom item from the tools drop down list) > Connections (across the top line) > LAN Settings 3/4 down the right side) > Uncheck all items except the top box (Automatically detect settings) > Click OK > OK > Now Reboot and see if you have any connections available in Control Panel > Network Connections - If so this can also be caused by some infections -

Thank You -
