try this... 1. download the updated driver 2. go to the device manager then uninstall the wireless driver 3. restart your computer then reinstall the driver 4. restart your computer for the last time and the driver will be installed properly
on your inspiron 2200...
1) click "start", "run", and type "services.msc"
2) select "wireless zero" at the bottom and check if it set to "automatic"
3) make sure that "wireless zero" is set to "start"
4) turn on inspiron 2200 wireless switch
5) right click wireless icon near to your computer's system time
6) click "view available wireless networks"
7) check if your wireless name is visible
The password is a WPA Shared Key. The secret key will be shown in your routers security or advanced or network configuration page.......if you forgot the key then the best alternative will be to reset the router you could simply create a new WPA-PSK and then setup each machine again that needs wireless access to your network.
I had the same problem. If you are using the latest driver for your intel 2200BG (220.127.116.11). Try to roll back to a previous version. It solved my problems with being unable to connect to a Linksys BEFW11 router running WEP64.
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
