Default Wireless Dilemma

after Reformatting my laptop , i have been unable to set up the wireless on the computer. It has an internal card , but for some reason it doesnt seem to just pick up the internet like it did before. So I put the wireless card in , and it works perfectly fine, but i'd like to set it up so that i can use the internal card. if anyone could help me with that please do ...
thanks PEACE

did you install the wireless card properly?

go to control panel -> network connections -> and enable the right wireless adapter and make sure your drivers are updated.

If you're not running windows xp, i dont think any wireless will work..

Once you reinstall windows you need to use your Laptops Mobo install cd that came with the unit and that should contain the drivers necessary for the on-board nic. Otherwise, you will need to download the driver from your laptops website.
