Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b
My internal wireless adapter doesnt seem to be working, and im not sure if its a software or hardware issue. When sitting next to a working router, the card still reports "no wireles networks found in range". To test it further i took it to the library where there is a wireless signal, and still there was no response. I tried to restore the settings of my operating system to a week prior to the inactivity date and still it doesnt work. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what i should do or to what the problem might be?
Tried these fixes with no luck, then realized the tiny "antenna on" switch on the front of my HP Mini 1000 (parallel to the on switch, just in front/under the keyboard) was glowing red instead of its usual blue. My antenna was off! Flicked the switch to turn on, and voila, wifi.

This IS the solution: Set it to use 802.11b _ONLY_ Do this in Windows: Start->Settings->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager->Network adapters->Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection->Advanced->Wireless Mode = 802.11b only Driver version: 9.04.36 (04.04.2007) PROset/Wireless Software: not installed OS: Windows XP

But here is the fix. Check your channel on the router. Then go to device manager and then to network adapters, click your wireless adapter, then advance tab. On the Ad Hoc section, the channel here should be the same as the channel on the router. You should be connected now.

Problem I find with wireless is no two routers are the same except for one feature - their service life can be as limited as a battery's.
I got fed up with Netflix winking out. Although only 30 straight line feet away, I had to keep repositioning the router orientation. It would work until it rained outside (which weakened my cable signal strength a little) and then problems. It was like the old days where you had to have someone hold the antenna and stand is just the right spot. The solution? I ran a hard wire Ethernet line and have never had a problem since. When the pain of intermittent connection gets too persistent - take the extra effort of laying a hard line and you will never look back. I do the same for my wireless mouses and keyboards - don't use them - but especially if using them for gaming.
