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.

Can you boot into safe mode? If not then the reason it continually reboots may not be software. I've seen a number of laptops that exhibit the behavior because the CPU is overheating.
