      hlep with setting up broadband after xp reinstall

      Hi all!, need your help, have had sky for over a year now and I have no complaints whatsoever. Last night I did a complete reinstall of Windows XP with service pack 2.

      I have the Sky Sagem router that was previously set up wirelessy through an Edimax USB Dongle which was great! When I now plug in the dongle to reset the broadband nothing happens, nothing at all, my PC recognises that theres a USB device plugged in (it does come up with the name of the dongle so it does recognise it) but when it asks for the software for it, it finds nothing! Should it not automatically install as it came with no disc and installed fine before or is it because I've not reconnected my router using the ethernet cable?

      Will I be able to reconnect using the cable as I remember when talking to sky about going wireless they said that after 30 days I would have to anyway as they would stop the wired connection! If this is true then I am stumped as how am I supposed to do an initial wired set up?

      Cheers in advance

      But which thread? Maybe we should tell the OP he should connect by LAN cable until his PC has downloaded the essential drivers from the Internet?
