Hey guys,

I just recently had to do a clean install of Windows XP SP2 on my laptop
because of a virus. When I did this, my wireless card can connect to my
Wireless Router but Internet Explorer cannot connect.

I've updated the driver using an ethernet connection.

Is is my wireless card or just the system?

Thanks a bunch.

Jorge

Try to get the latest Updates from MS, specially SP2 and there is a WPA
update get that and try to go through the settings in Control Panel, you will
need to Enter the SSID (Network Name) and the Encryption Key as it is Entered
on the Router Configuration Page.

= Click Start >> Control panel >> Network and Internet Connections >> Double
click Network connections, then right your LAN Icon and select Properties.
On the LAN properties under General make sure the Internet Protocol TCP/IP
is selected and click Properties.
There make sure the Machine Get assigned Automatically IP address and Renter
the Encryption Key and the Network SSID then click
[OK].

= Click start >> Control Panel >> Double Click Network and Internet
Connections >> Double click Internet Options, on the IE Properties window
you will see these Options:
General | Security | Privacy | Content | Connections | Programs
| Advanced.
Click on Connections tab and make sure the Connection is listed there then
click on LAN settings button and uncheck Automatically detect settings.

So, here are some steps it will apply on wired or wireless
