I just did a fresh install of windows xp pro sp2 on my Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. I used the driver CD that it came with to install all the proper drivers. I still cant seem to get my laptop connected. Right now I am just using a Cat5 cable from my router to my laptop (figure that was the simplest method).

I also am having a problem getting the wireless driver installed, but if I was able to get the laptop connected I am pretty sure I can find a download for that. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

is the laptop getting an ip address? What shows up if you do ipconfig?
