I recently cleaned out my hard drive and reinstalled windows xp on my computer. Now I have no network connections and can't seem to set up my wireless connection. I continue to get error messages. Please help!!!
Since the operating system was re-installed did you remember to go to drivers and downloads, enter your service tag(DO NOT POST SERVICE TAG here or your post will get deleted, since it contains your personal information), and install these drivers in this order.

What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

I am a little bit computer illiterate. How exactly do I do this?
Click on the blue drivers and downloads or click here, it will take you to drivers and downloads. If you choose by service tag, you can enter your service tag number or you can click find my service tag.
Drivers you'll need. I can give you a few but if you enter the service tag number at drivers and downloads, it will narrow down the drivers you need. Please do NOT post your service tag number here.

Make and model of your wireless router and the type os security you're using is helpful. What channel?
