Wireless Connection Issue

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I'm not showing any wireless connections in my "Choose a wireless
screen. I can not update the driver from the device manager,
this made me just
uninstall the driver and reinstall from Intel's site.
After doing this, it
works, brings up all connections in my area and I
can connect to one of them.
But when I turn the computer off and turn
back on, whether immediately or the
next morning, there's no wireless
connections anywhere. It's like there's no
wireless network adapter
available. I have retried the uninstall-reinstall
drivers and once again
it will work fine.

Network Adapter:
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

Any ideas?

Toshiba Satelite Laptop
Intel Core 2 CPU
T5500 @ 1.66GHz
Microsoft Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Thanks for any help.

FWIW I had the same problem on a Dell desktop machine using a Netgear
wireless card. It was suggested to me that the configuration profile had
somehoe become corrupted which is why it would not load after a reboot.
The solution was not to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, but to
**DELETE THE DEVICE** in Device Manager and then reboot to allow the
adaptor to be redetected and the profile rebuilt. It worked fine after

I just seen a couple of other responses in the Windows XP forum that
I'll also
try, but I'll try this one first and see what happens.
