Can't find network

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?

    The connection has full bars and also the network is picked up and working on an identical laptop.

    The exact same problem, different type of laptop. The card just, out of nowhere, stopped recognizing any wireless networks yesterday. One second it was working fine (excellent signal strength, etc.), and then suddenly the little "X" appeared next to the wireless icon in the system tray, and whenever I try to search for wireless networks, it says "No wireless networks were found in range." Normally, it'd be detecting a number of them. I'm just trying to figure out if it's a corrupted driver issue (tried reinstalling several times), or the hardware itself crapped out on me straight out of the blue, with no history of problems or malfunction, ever, for the past three years (since I acquired said laptop).

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)?

I have an HP/Compaq 8230 that is 3 1/2 years old. Recently, my wireless has stopped working. "No networks found in range". It is an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG.


Do a wireless scan and see how many wireless connections are avaiable in your neighbor. If I was a beating men, that your wireless router is sharing a neighbor's wireless channel number.

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

WOnt connect


the model of laptop...if its Toshiba, hp or sony it likely has a switch on side of it.. or could be like dells fn and f2 keystroke (hold fn hit f2) a wifi light turns on then refresh wifi list. make sure u have at least 2 or 3 green bars in xp also if a tool took over the wireless configuration then it wont show any. (check box in advanced settings "let windows manage my wireless connections")
