Is it getting any better if you move closer to the router?
First try to update the driver and see if it works better, if not than there's not really much you can do with it. You can swich to cat5e cable, that will be more than enough, or if you really need wireles speed than consider changeing the wirelesscacd in your laptop.
I suggest you some atheros chip based card, because their signal strength and sensitivity is very good. First figure out what you have, open up the small backpanel of your laptop, if there's two than it could be the bigger one. The card could be Mini PCI or mini PCI-E wichever is similar to your card is the type that you need.
After that go to ebay and search for "atheros mini pci" or "mini pci-e atheros", see description for compatibility, or ask the seller if you are not certain. Delivery usually takes about up to 5 bisness days.
Depanding of the card's exact chip you can download driver from here.
Just check before ordering if there's a driver or not for your OS, because as you can see they don't have drivers for some older chips if you have a relatively new windows like Vista or if the chipset is new in some cases there's no driver for XP
But for most cards there's a working dirver and it really makes a diference after most cards.

To swich the card:
-Download the driver for the new card.
-Uninstall the current wireless driver in windows and shut down the computer.
-Swich the wireless card for the new one.
-Start the system and install the driver.
-Enjoy your new card.

Broadband speed slower with intel pro 2200bg wireless


First, download the latest driver from http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1637 by selecting your operating system. After downloading run the setup and follow all instructions. Typically these issues are just a driver problem.

Please let me know if this solves your problem.

Thanks,

Wireless network found


If it cannot find any networks, check to see if there is a wireless on/off switch on the computer - look carefully some are well hidden. The switch turns the antenna on and off but windows still detects the network adapter and thinks everything is ok.

Wireless internet problem


Hi

I think your Operating System (OS) software installed after formatting does not have drivers for the wireless network card.

You did not provide any clues about the OS and the Network (Model/Brand) installed.

Dell Inspiron 6000 did ship with Windows XP as the Default OS and Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card or Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG, 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Cards as options

First, check the Original System Configuration to find out the built specification of the Inspiron 6000.
Enter you system tag. Click on the Original System Configuration Tab. Check the factory built specification and note the Wireless Card installed from the factory. If you have not changed or upgraded the Wireless Card, download and install the drivers from the list below.

Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card Drivers
Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG / 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Card Drivers

I am almost sure you will need drivers for the Chipset, onboard network and video.
Intel Mobile Chipset
Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller Driver v.4.25
Video (as above check the factory spec if you ordered the ATI MobilityRadeon X300)
Intel Graphics Video (onboard) Driver v.6.14.10.4609
ATI MobilityRadeon X300 Driver v.8.162-050803a2-025823C

Let me know how you get on.

System Crash


Hi

Intel 2200BG is known to cause this and similar errors when Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) encryption is used. The problem has been around since 2004 and new OS Drivers should fix this.

I recommend you download and install latest Windows Drivers (appropriate for your Windows Version) for Intel 2200BG Adaptor.

If this cannot be done, then setting your wireless to Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encription (though less secure) will minimise these error conditions

NB: Google "w22n51.sys" for more info.

Mike

Reboot necessary to find ISP server


2200BG is a very old Intel wireless card. Its driver had a lot of issues that were fixed over the years. Try the latest driver from Intel site: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1637&lang=eng (make sure to choose correct OS).
