  1. I recently had to reinstall windows XP on my recently aquired Dell Latitude. Model number is c510/c610.

    I aquired it refurbished, and came with a built in wireless adapter. It should still be the same adapter that the computer was made with.

    However, when I reinstalled Windows XP, the wireless adapter's software was not installed. My computer's internet connections tell me that there is only an ethernet conection, and I do not know where or what I need to install to get wireless to work.

    Can someone please point me in the right diraction as to where to find this and how to enable wireless. I have tried several drivers from the Dell Website, but there are alot and I do not know which one is correct.


    Thank you for your help.

    You may need to open up the laptop and find out just what the wireless card's make and model actually is. It might be Atheros or something like that. You might be able to access the card from the memory compartment
