A friend of mine recently gave me his Gateway M460e laptop. When i received it, all necessary drivers were installed, however the hard drive was riddled with viruses. Last night, I uninstalled XP, reformatted the hard drive, and re-installed XP, as well as installing Avast AntiVirus. I do not need to set up a wireless network, all i need to know is how to connect to an existing wireless network. Beforehand, there was a wireless network icon in the system tray, but now that i did a clean re-installation it is gone. I assume that this means I need to install a driver? I have a laptop with Windows 7 which I can use to download any necessary files and transfer them to the Gateway with a flash drive. I found a page
with a list of drivers for the laptop, but (being as I have little computer knowledge) have no idea which ones to install, or if these are even the ones I am looking for. Can someone please help? Thanks!
