One option for you to disable the Intel Proset wireless connection is to go to Control Panel > click Network Connections > Then there is an icon for Intel Proset Wireless connection > right click it and click Disable. Close the control panel and try to run the Windows wireless connection..

Using Intel ProSet Wireless, right? Use Windows utility and it will be fine. I still have not resolved this with ProSet.

If the Intel ProSet application has an icon on the bottom-right of your "system-tray" (the system-tray has the START button on the left and the clock on the right), then right-mouse-click on that icon, and choose 'exit' or 'close'.

I had usualy solved mysterious problems with other intel PRO wireless cards not authenticating, loosing signal, etc, by simply upgrading to the latest intel drivers.
Also using the Intel connection manager instead of the windows or Dell/other notebook manfucaturer's product is far more reliable.
Hope this helps.

Intel ProSet Wifi software can't connect to network


You need to manually add the network using your intel pro set utility. Or just switch to wzc.(wireless zero configuration). How to do it? just click start - go to run - type in services.msc - then look for wireless zero configuration on the list - right click on it then click start.
Then look for the wireless network connection icon on the system tray (that's in the bottom right hand corner of your screen). right click on it then select view available wireless network.

note: if you'll be getting the message "windows could not configure..." click change the order of preferred networks(that's in the same window where you're getting that message) then check the box that says "use windows to configure my wireless network settings" then click ok. after that go back to view available wireless networks then you should see your network now.

note: if you're using a corporate laptop where you don't have admin rights on it you need to use the intel pro

Something wrong with software causing wireless connection issues


Make sure you are using the application that came with your computer to work with the wireless card. The windows embedded application is a generic program. The application that comes with your computer/wireless card will work better or is made to work with that adapter. You can turn off the windows wireless zero configuration by going to:

Start -> Run -> Type "services.msc" hit enter

Scroll down to the bottom and right click on Wireless Zero Configuration and click Stop.

Use the Intel PROset Wireless application which are used in most Dells.

If you are stilling having problems, try uninstalling the PROset Wireless Application, Updating the Wireless Drivers and Reinstalling the PROset Wireless App.

How do I turn the radio on the wireless card


When your computer is switched on, the WiFi radio is almost always transmitting or receiving signals. In certain situations, as in an airplane, signals from the radio may cause interference. Use the following methods if you need to disable the radio and use your notebook without emitting radio signals.
Use the Optional Computer Radio On or Off Switch

If your computer has an external switch installed, use it to switch the WiFi radio on or off. See the computer manufacturer for more information about this switch. If you have Intel® PROSet/Wireless installed, the current state of the radio displays in the Intel PROSet/Wireless main window and on the Taskbar.

How to use the Device Manager to Disable the WiFi Radio

Wireless network not detected despite all elements seems working


Hello there.

This is a common problem. What i typically do on notebooks that use Intel Wireless, is install the latest drivers and Intel software from their website. 9 times out of 10 this will make it pick up a network that was not previously found, or fix problems with timeouts and so on.

Please click here then choose your version of windows, click 'Go!' and then click "Download" beside the section called "Intel® PROSet/Wireless Network Connection Software for Windows* XP/2000 32-Bit"

When you download and run this file, and install the software, you can then use the Intel utility to connect to the wireless network.

Hope this helps.
