I upgraded my toshiba NB200 from XP to Vista, but can no longer connect to the internet. Diagnostics is telling me that the computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed. It worked on XP....


Use an Ethernet cable to connect the LAN port on the Toshiba to your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) or to your home-router.

Then, run 'Windows Update', and look for "Optional Hardware" updates, which should include the correct device-driver for the wireless adapter.

The bootable XP cd you have will work - You need to first reinstall the Operating System(XP), then download and install drivers for the devices(Such as touchpad, wireless, etc.)
The device drivers are all available from Acer's support site; If the Network Card driver isn't installed after the windows XP installation, you will need to use a different computer to download the drivers, and transfer them to your laptop using some sort of removable media - USB Flash drive, portable hard drive, memory card, etc.

About wi-fi


Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
