I loaded windows xp on my laptop which had windows vista on it. I am having trouble finding driver and getting the wireless LAN adapter to work properly. I have run windows update and everything is up to date. I can't seem to find any audio drivers that work. As well I can't find any drivers for the VGA Controller and the USB Controller. The wireless LAN will pick up the network and went I go to connect it prompts me for the password so I enter it and it can't connect. If I dissable the security on the router it works fine. I have double checked the password as well at one point while I was updating through windows update it all of a sudden connected but now it wont again.

What is the Model # of your Gateway laptop? Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager all the devices with yellow marks need drivers installed for them. Go to the Gateway site, type in your model # and download the drivers for your specific computer. If the computer shipped with Vista then Gateway probably doesn't have drivers for XP. It's best to put Vista back on it.

It's a Gateway Model W340UI if I type that into that gateway website it doesn't come up with any drivers. The computer runs slow as molasses on windows vista.

Alright so everything is almost working. The only thing that I dont have drivers for is for the USB's. The wireless network adapter is still doing the same thing. It did connect to the network one more time. It took it forever in order to do it. I think it is the security part that is not working properly because if I take the security off the router it connects no problem. This coputer isn't the only one running off the router so I know it's not the router.

I found drivers for the USB Controller. I have all the drivers I need now just have to make the wireless work. I have a thread started for it in the network section.

Thanks for the help
