This one's been irritating me for a while, but now that I'm on the road more and connecting to various networks it's become too frustrating to bear. Here's the deal: - My Gateway MX6951 laptop has an integrated Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card and runs WinXP Media Center 2002 SP2 (boo, I know... hoping to get to Vista sometime soon) - It can see some networks but not others; I don't know what the difference is. I can detect the wireless network at the local library and connect without issue. - For now, specifically, I'm trying to get it to connect to the router at home. The wireless card cannot detect the router. - I know the wireless portion of the router is working because hubby's Toshiba Satellite can wirelessly detect and connect to it just fine. - Currently I'm connected to the same router via ethernet, so it's not the internets. What I've done: - Device Manager says it's working properly. - Looked high and low for a hardware switch for the wireless but can't find one, so I assume it's always on. - Tried installing wireless drivers from Gateway site; reboot; no change in behaviour. - Tried installing wireless drivers from Intel; reboot; no change in behaviour. - Tried fidgeting with wireless connection TCP/IP properties; nothing has helped so far. I've put them back to the defaults and it's still not working. (The wireless should still pick up the presence of a network access point though, regardless of security settings... right? ) - Searched Google for known issues, but nothing's come up (although I'm not entirely sure I'm using the right search words). Help? Cliffs: My laptop's wireless network card detects some networks but not others. Can't get it working. WTF?
