Check the device manager (right click on my computer> go to properties> click hardware> click device manager) and look for any yellow "?" or "!" marks on the icons, if none are found, make sure that the laptops "Wifi switch" is enabled.

Many people do not know that their laptop has a wifi switch that can turn the antenna on and off and make it appear as if the wireless adapter is not working.

Sometimes this switch is on the side of the laptop somewhere sometimes it is whats called a "soft switch" where you press FN and one of the number keys at the same time, the key usually has a little radio wave icon on it somewhere. - This is most likely the cause of your problem.

HP Pavilion Tx1000 not seeing wireless card. I put a new one in since the old one didn't seem to work, and not seeing the new card either.


That's the problem of the controller chip not the wireless itself. Faulty Nvidia chip on the motherboard. You will need to reflow the chip. Take it to the shop or get the DIY guide from www.msbinc.om

Broadband speed slower with intel pro 2200bg wireless


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.

Look in your package manager if you have a wireless-tools package (or just wireless). It will detect the card without any other installation.
