    Hi all,
    Recently a friend got a virus on the computer that required a re-installation of windows xp.

    Everything went well, but the only problem was that the internet does not work. I don´t have any problem connecting through ethernet but with a USB wirless adaptor I am unable to browse.

    I am able to detect the wireless network and connect, but I cannot get online. I have tried the wireless connection with another PC and it works fine. I am thinking it is a driver problem. Unfortunatekly I don´t have the original driver, but windows found a version but I am unsure of weather the driver is the correct version. Windows tells me that the device is an RT73 wirless USB card I believe the manufacturer is Ralink. I am unable to find a diver and have come accross several sites where I have to pay for a driver (which I don´t understand???). But does anybody know where I could get a driver for this device?

    Many thanks for your help
