No internet connection in my Laptop after installing Windows-XP Professional


http://www.packardbell.co.uk/pb/en/GB/content/download
Go to this link and enter your SNID, should be on the bottom. Select Windows XP and download the lan and wlan drivers. Of course you will have to do this on a computer that connects to the internet. Copy the drivers to a usb drive and install on the laptop.

How to install genuine XP on AH530


>> LifeBook LH530(FPCM45161) 14.1 Windows 7 Professional 64-bit NoteBook :$799.99 Fujitsu

Why would you even _think_ about "downgrading" from Windows 7 to Windows XP?

Your computer was "designed for Windows 7", and for 64-bit operation.
To "cripple" it by running a 32-bit version of Windows XP would be a terrible thing to do.

Plus, many components (video, audio, wireless) in the computer *NEED* the device-drivers included in Windows 7.

Finally, Microsoft soon will "sunset" Windows XP, i.e., stop issuing security-update for it;
at that time, you will need to install Windows 7, to protect your computer from "new" threats.

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.

Dell C640 wireless not working


I used Everest home edition to find the wireless drivers for my DELL C640 laptop.   The wireless card in it is an  ntel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B MiniPCI Adapter (IBM). I've downloaded the wireless driver from Intel's website, here: 
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=944&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional〈=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go!#DRI
It's the 3rd result in that search page. If the link doesn't work, simply search for Intel® PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Connection on Intel's site. 
That Dell C640 wireless driver works fine for me, I'm using the wireless card to type this :)    
good luck!
