Re: reinstall windows xp to laptop now cant connect to...
Hi there. You may have to use a keyboard toggle command, hold down Fn and if you can see a wireless icon on one of the F keys press it. Hopefully the wireless will activate and connect. If you can't see the keys post back with the make and model of the laptop.

Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.
Try running the cd that came with the router again, since you reinstalled windows, the configurations for the router have been lost. If this doesn't help let us know and we'll work on it from there.. good luck!
In addition to installing the operating system (Windows XP) you will need to install the drivers for the system. If you system is a Dell Dimension 1100 you can get the drivers from this link:
Driver installation order is:
Desktop system software (R121089.exe)
Intel Chipset Utility (R96614.exe)
Intel Video Driver (R104515.exe)
Audio Driver (R105155.exe)
Network Driver (R105786.exe)
Modem Driver (R133743.exe or R73044.exe)
Once you have all the drivers installed, then you can install your applications and configure your internet connection.
