Unhappy Connecting to the internet on xp

Hey guys,

I was using that Dell network wizard thing for xp... and it kept crashing so I deleted it...

And now... I can't connect to the internet at all (wirelessly) I'm a complete noob when it comes to anything technical so can you guys help me out here? =[

Cheers,

Default Re: Connecting to the internet on xp

Click on Start->Run then type in services.msc then hit Enter to bring up the services panel. Then scroll to the bottom and check to see if the Wireless Zero Configuration service is started. If not, right-click on it and select Start. That should make it so Windows will manage your wifi adapter. Post back if you need more assistance.

Ok thanks for getting back to me!

I've done what you've said (set it to automatic start-up too??) but nothing has really happened?

My wireless icon isn't there at all, it will allow me and will show me when I've connected to the router with a wired connection, but that's it! Haha, I'm soooo bad at this =[.

Cheers,
