My old desktop with...

My old desktop with windows XP won't see my wifi.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your router?

It is the 2wire that came with the computer

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

I talked with ATT which is my internet provider. They exhausted their steps and advised me to contact HP. But the computer is to old for them to help. I tried to find an updated driver for the router on the web, but didn't have any luck.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Network Expert to know before I connect you?

I am currently using my laptop and it works fine. Also, the desktop in question will see other wifi's in the area. Just not mine.

Hello,

My name is***** will be the person helping you today.

Thank you for the update.

How about this; can you plug the problem wireless computer into the router or modem with a cable and allow me to run a secure remote assistance session on the computer so I can setup the wireless connection? When the remote session begins, we will be able to communicate back and forth via a chat window that will appear on your computer screen.
