    Bobify; You are saying you can't connect via wifi? Can you reach the
    Internet via a LAN / hard wired connection. You're running with two
    browsers, both MS-IE and Firefox. Their recent / current versions don't
    support Windows XP. Are you using their older versions that do support
    XP?

    Do you have another device that reaches Internet content via your router &
    modem or (gateway; that provides both modem and router functions) that your
    laptop is connected to?
    If you post here again, consider providing details about the laptop....mfgr,
    model #, what XP version, your Internet provider, your gateway or your
    separate modem and router details.

    Within the past week, I had to return my gateway to Comcast for
    another one; the one I'd been using stopped working via wifi.
