    a friend of mine has xp pro and for some reason he can no longer get on the
    internet at any wi-fi location. it did work at one time. i looked at his
    folder for wireless config utility and it was empty, is this the problem? if
    it is where can i locate a download for it?

    What "folder for wireless config utility" are you looking at?

    Is there an icon showing in the notification area (near the clock) that
    can be used to "show available wireless networks"?

    What shows in "Network Connections"?

  5. Hi
    First step is to find out if the WIFO works.
    Follow this, http://www.ezlan.net/wireless.html
    If it looks like their is a viable working WIFI system, then you/he need to
    describe exactly what "Not working" in specific means in this case.
    One common issue is that people has encryption On, or the computer is
    configure to work with a business Network, and need to be adjust to work
    with Open Hot Spots.
