Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

How do I check that I have service pack 2 installed on my Windows XP home edition. I have service pack 3 and many updates which have been done automatically. I need help with getting my computer to talk to my wirele3ss modem. I am just using a small aerial plugged into the back of the CPU. Many thanks in advance. NB: Had to reinstall OS recently now signal strength icon in task bar is no longer there, only the one for effinet connection.
