I have just reformatted my windows XP and it is now not recognising its wireless capabilities. The LAN ethernet card works well. The wireless function has been working well before the reformat. I have activated the WZC but it was not effective.
In fact in the network connections there is not even an option for wireless connections hence i can't even manually create a wireless internet connection. I have used this computer before and the wireless card is built in and works fine. please help.

If you have internet, then just right click "Computer" icon on desktop, select 'manage' and then select 'device manager' in the "Computer Management" screen. Check for any entries with '!' or'?'. Most probably your 'wireless hardware' will have such a mark beside it. Right click on that entry select 'update driver software'. If you would have had a driver cd of your laptop, then you could have used 'Browse my computer for driver software', whereas in this case use 'Search automatically for updated driver software'. Your computer will search the internet for most appropriate drivers and install it. Hope this will help you out.
Are you using a 4GB or higher SDHC card, and is the computer (and/or card reader) more than a few years old? If so, that may be your problem. Would recommend considering the purchase of a new plug-in USB SDHC portable card reader (one that is stated capable of reading SDHC). These are only a few dollars on Amazon, and should allow you to download your photos. Note that if your computer is using Windows XP or newer, you should have no problems with the computer recognizing the plug-in reader. But if Windows 98 or older, you may want to ensure that the reader is capable of recognition with the OS before purchasing.
Your computer is built to acquire wireless signals made possible with routers as link stations. Also, the computer is capable of transmitimng signals with the same process to any device with conditions explained. First, TVs would acquire wireless signals with builtin wireless routers to recognise external media requirng intergration. Performing sigal transmittion compartibility checks should produce results of whether your computer is capable of communicating with the computer at a wireless level. Refering to the TV user guide ascertain the wireless capabilities with respect to computer to TV media communications. Every possible signal connectivity is acquirable with performing technical diagnostic checks to ascertain the missing links. For example, modern devices are capable of transmittions across mediums achievable at the users own experimentation.
A lan adaptor driver is fixable by downloading from the network site of the USB 2.0.
1. Lan adaptors are outdated versions incompartible with recent operating systems. Acquiring a new USB device or even wireless modems are the latest alternatives to lan computer connections of the past. Modern wireless modem connection have built in installation kits,also present is the computers capability to recognise to integrate to a network.
you may be having conflicts with usb devices. try temporarily removing all unnecessary devices from the usb ports. unplug and then plug the drive back in. you could try another port. if all ports are in use, then unplug another device, like the mouse and plug in to that port, then plug the mouse into the writers port. i had a similar problem with a wireless usb lan that stopped another device from being recognised. when i removed the lan and replugged the unrecognised device, windows recognised it. i obviously had to use the wireless lan, so i swapped that with the mouse and it worked.
Do you remember installing a wireless adpater on the pc that you upgraded to win xp? if not, then you really need to get a wireless receiver. Or you can also check you network connections under control panel, see if you have a wireless network connection under LAN or highspeed internet, if not you really need to get a wireless receiver for your computer.
