Let me be honest i duno the difference between wi-fi and wireless. I hope its the same thing. Anyway my prob is i downgraded from Vista to XP and now i cannot get the icon for wireless connections at the bottom-right of the screen. i was wondering if i will be able to connect to a wifi hotspot or any existing internet connection close to me. any help will be appreciated....thx I believe during the dowgrading process i have lost the driver for wifi or something like that.. anyway my system specs are : Toshiba s4747... Windows XP..
