8. Go to the 'Wireless Networks' tab.
9. Check the option 'Use Windows to Configure this Wireless Connection' and click 'OK'.

Now please perform the following instructions to connect to the wireless network:

1. Go to 'Control Panel', Click on Classic View in the left hand side menu and then open 'Network Connections'.

3. Click on the 'wireless network' tab.

How to install built in webcam in Microsoft XP Professional without a CD?


Webcams built-in to computers (I'm assuming it's a laptop) just require a driver to work (no CD necessary). You'll need to visit the website of your laptop's manufacturer and download the driver for it. After that you'll be able to use it with whatever software you need (including Windows built in software).

How can i install my memorycard built-in reader


what type do you have... built in types would often be plugged into the motherboard where you would plug in your front usb cable (if the motherboard has that option) which most new boards nowadays do.

My Built-in sound card was lost!


Go to START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / RUN.

In the command window type compmgnt.msc Under

System Tools click DEVICE MANAGER.

In the Device Manager click Sound, video, and game controllers.

Expand the tree by clicking on the (+) plus sign then select the

name of your sound device. Click Driver, then click Update Driver.

If it fails to update go to Windows Update by clicking

START / ALL PROGRAMS / WINDOWS UPDATE

Let it scan your computer and you'll want hardware under

Optional Updates. Your last choice is to go to the homepage

of your sound device's manufacturer.

Don't have wireless connection on my Toshiba notebook.


Make sure the drivers are installed for your wireless adapter. XP sometimes overlooks adapters during installation. Check the Device Manager for any yellow exclamation points. If you find one, uninstall it and click on the top item (your computer). Right-click the same device and then click Scan for Hardware Changes. You should have your drivers disk ready. The device will likely install, but be unable to find drivers. Point XP to your drivers disk and it should install the drivers for you.

BTW, if you don't have a drivers disk, check your system BIOS for the chipset and google for "<chipset number/name> Windows XP drivers". You should be able to find the drivers and download them from the wired connection before trying the above instructions for reinstalling the wifi drivers.

I hope this helps!
Regards,
CharlieJ

Have no way to connect wirelessly


Sounds like you need some drivers installed, especially if you just installed XP clean.

Visit support.dell.com, click on Drivers and Downloads, click on the service tag option and enter your service tag located on the bottom.

This will take you to a list of drivers for your specific model. Make sure the OS chosen is Windows XP and in the list you should find some wireless drivers. There may be several different wireless drivers listed. And one of those will be specific to your needs.

You might need to identify which wireless card you have first. Which will requrie gaining access to it to get some part numbers or model numbers from it. There should be an access panel on the bottom that you can open to gain access to the mini-pci wireless card. That way you can see which one you have and download the correct software for it.
