Wi-Fi card can be considered broken only if its not able to scan for any available networks. Also, do check in the device manager of the computer. Check for the device status of this wireless adapter there. If its properly installed, etc., it should say, "This device is working properly". There is also a fix for other error messages. Regarding hardware breakage, we cannot come to a conclusion so easily as we have all these things to check. The case may be little complicated as its an in-built wireless card. We cannot even remove it and try on a different computer.
Your Intel wireless-G 2.4Ghz is defective, all you have to do is test another wireless LAN to make it sure that is working via USB panel. I encounter this kind of problem and wish it would be the same like me. Usually this kind of problem cannot see itself that is defective but it is working good to your PC. Just try a new wireless LAN if might work. Good luck!
I had this same problem this weekend. This is a 802.11 B card. It can use WEP and WPA for network security/encryption. You can find the driver here -> http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-67214
Once you download the file run it and install. Your wireless card will then work.
Note: This adapter will not support WPA2 type network encryption. It will only run at speeds up to 11Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. Make sure you have set you router to support this older format.
Your HP G60 has an 802.11 b/g card. 802.11g has a maximum rated speed of 54 mbps, like the router. You never get the actual "rated" speed with wireless cards, this would occur only with maximum signal strength, no network protocol overhead, no security, etc. if you were to replace your current card in the Satellite with an 802.11 b/g card, you would get comparable results.
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
the plug ins that it relates to can only be other programmes that are associated with the network for example windows zero configuration.
I would suggest going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look in the list for network adapters and on the '+' sign right click on your wireless network card and select uninstal.
Restart pc and it should be installed automatically, but keep your eye on the taskbar when it says found new hardware and ensure that it says it has found the intel pro wireless( if thats the model) and try again.
Also re install the drivers from your notebooks web site incase there are updated ones.
