Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b

Wireless network unavailable no matter what

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?

    I had this problem for about 6 weeks. Checked all my settings. Even contacted Microsoft for a fix. Nothing anyone else suggested worked because the system shows everthing is working fine and the driver is good. I even purchased a new wireless card. I had Intel 2200BG.

    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.

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

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.

My Adapter i no longer picking up my wireless router, it doesnt light up at all when its plugged in to the usb port either


Hey!
It seems like the driver/software of the adapter got corrupted, or that the adapter itself is corrupted/mulfunctioning!
First, unplug the adapter; completely uninstall, restart then reinstall the software; then plug it in again, preferably using a different USB port.

If it still doesn't work, replace the adapter!

Best regards,
Pelu.

My Netgear WG111v2 adapter seems to have given up. Tried re-installing software but the PC does not seem to recognize the existence of the hardware. Any ideas or do you think it's Donald D'd


Sounds like, may be the first time you install the software driver you might have selected the option "Donot prompt me to install the software Again"
Open Device manager and find is there is any exclamation mark next to the Wireless adapter, if so uninstall the driver and search for new hardware, it should work.
Good Luck.

Toshiba Satellite limitations on network adapters all wireless, need other


you need to log into the router setting by typing something like 192.168.*.* etc,check the right one for your router and enable some type of encryption like 128bits wep..Then your network is secured with a password which will stop anyone access.Now also change your router password if possible to prevent access from others...Hope this helps.

WLAN not detecting


Please make sure that youre wireless adapter is on to begin with. I say this as a precautionary measure cause most of the time, i see many cases at work with this simple mistake done. If there is a hardware swich, make sure it's on. IF Hardware switch is on, make sure wireless connection is enables. This can be checked if you go to Control panel>network conenctions>wireless lan (see if it's shaded or faded grey. That means it is not enabled).

Once you have done this, and it shoes that the wirelss LAN connection is up and running, do what S_n_A_k_E said. Check if the driver for the wireless adapter is having problems and reinstall if necessary. If even that is not the issue, then make sure that you havent accidentally MAC locked your notebook out of the network (yes, i've seen this happen before as well :D)

Alternatively, you might wanna check out if you're behind a systen firewall that doesnt allow connectivity or if in a coporate enviroment, make sure that your in your proper VLAN zone. Hope this helps.

Wont detect any wireless networks


Go into hardware, then device manager in my computer properties or control panel and look down the list at 'network adapters'. Click the '+' sign adn check that your wreless adapter has not got a yellow!(exclamation mark) next to it, if so it's a driver error. If not right click on it then down to properties, then look in the 'device status' box, if it says code 10 it's faulty. If it says this device is working, look further down at 'Device Usage' and make sure it's enabled.
