Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 2011B LAN Enterprise Access Point (WEAP2011BRW) 802.11b
Ok This is noraml if the ESSID broadcast is turned off and if a WEP or WPA encryption key has been added. this will not allow you to associate and connect to the wireless access point. But if you want to see if the wireless access point has a WEP or WPA key you can install NetStumbler and it will tell you what networks are active in your area. The network you are trying to connect to will appear and it will have WEP yes or WPA yes to indicate if the network has a key. If it does you will not beable to connect until you have the key.

Tips for a great answer:
Wireless problems with a Packard Bell PC or laptop can be caused by a variety of issues.
The best troubleshooting resources are the documentation that came supplied with the computer, and the Support section of the Packard Bell website.
Unable To Detect Wireless Network
If the Packard Bell machine is unable to detect a wireless network, the computer itself or the network could be at fault.
Check that a wireless signal is being broadcast via another PC or device, and check that are wireless adapter is installed, complete with the latest drivers, which are available at the Packard Bell website.
Unreliable Wireless Network
If the wireless connection is unreliable, intermittent or very slow, it suggests a problem with the Wi-Fi broadcast.
Try positioning the computer closer to the router broadcasting the wireless signal, or use a signal booster to improve the range.
Download and install the latest driver updates from the Packard Bell website and through the Windows Update tool.
Unable To Connect To Wireless Network
If the computer can detect the network but is unable to connect to it, a network security key may be required. This should have been configured by the person who set up the network. Consult the documentation that came with your router for details of how to change it or generate a new key.
