Hi, I just bought a new Motorola Modem/Router and successfully connected my Windows 7 to the internet but I can't figure out how to do it on Windows XP.  Can someone help please?

Is the XP machine desktop (not likely to even have wireless)? or Laptop?  If the latter, there is usually a wireless on/off switch on the case. Is it ON ?

@camtz  - Thanks for the update and I was happy to help. I think that little switch causes more wireless aggravation than it is worth!
