Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b
I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG card installed in a HP laptop. The wireless network button on the side is pressed, the light is on, the computer recognizes the card and says it's working fine, and I have the latest driver installed, but it still can't find my network. What am I missing?
Actually, I resolved the problem just the other day. I ran the Dell pre-boot Diagnostics Utility to check all of the hardware on my laptop, and when I restarted in normal mode afterwards, the problem was gone. My only guess is that a random value got changed somewhere in the drivers, and somehow running the Diag. Util. bumped it back to normal. Also, I was right next to my home router as well. I had friends use their laptops anywhere in my house, and it had an excellent signal for them (I also tried using it in other wifi locations, but it wasn't working there either).
Anyway, if you have a Dell (other brands, such as HP, might have something similar), try the Diag. Util. (accessed by hitting F12 when the Dell logo appears when you first boot up your computer. Then, select "Diagnostic" from the list that appears). Hope that helps anyone else with the same problem.

Assuming network is up..right? only reason that all of that would be happening, and no network, is that the signal is weak..can you see it on the network reader? and how strong is the signal(bars)?
