Depends on the driver. Many drivers don't require any reconfiguration.

As SpywareDoc said most drivers do not require any configuration.  Are you asking how we configure a machine after we have installed the operating system and drivers?

Hi James.

 

You seem to have started several topics for the same issue, Wireless internet connection.

 

In one of your other topics you stated that there was a "Drivers" folder on your original C Drive. If you can still access that folder, the drivers inside are likely to be the best ones to use during a reinstall. There may be updated drivers on Dell's website, but they usually provide a confusing assortment of required and recommended files. You rarely need everything in their list.

 

That being said, it appears that you have the drivers for your wireless card (Intel ProSet) installed correctly.

 

If you don't need your 1394 (Firewire) adapter, (I've never met anybody that did) then right-click on it and disable it. Windows is trying to connect through it instead of your wireless. Also turn off Internet Connection Sharing on all adapters.

 

After doing that, please return to your topic "does anybody know how to get to the: "let windows configure your network setting" and continue diagnosis there, as it has the most info and followers.
