Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 802.11g/b
My internal wireless card doesnt seem to be working, and im not sure if its a software or hardware issue. When sitting next to a working router, the card still reports "no wireles networks found in range". To test it further i took it to the library where there is a wireless signal, and still there was no response. I tried to restore the settings of my operating system to a week prior to the inactivity date and still it doesnt work. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what i should do or to what the problem might be?
Heya. I had this same problem. Shedding some light: Function key+ F2 (or the F# key that has the little antenna on it.)

Go into hardware, then device manager in my computer properties or control panel and look down the list at 'network adapters'. Click the '+' sign adn check that your wreless adapter has not got a yellow!(exclamation mark) next to it, if so it's a driver error. If not right click on it then down to properties, then look in the 'device status' box, if it says code 10 it's faulty. If it says this device is working, look further down at 'Device Usage' and make sure it's enabled.

But here is the fix. Check your channel on the router. Then go to device manager and then to network adapters, click your wireless adapter, then advance tab. On the Ad Hoc section, the channel here should be the same as the channel on the router. You should be connected now.

Tried these fixes with no luck, then realized the tiny "antenna on" switch on the front of my HP Mini 1000 (parallel to the on switch, just in front/under the keyboard) was glowing red instead of its usual blue. My antenna was off! Flicked the switch to turn on, and voila, wifi.
