i have an IBM thinkpad R52 with intel pro set 2200 wireless lan card.
other applications installed are IBM Access connection and thinkpad wireless lan drivers.
All drivers are updated and operating system is Windows XP Professional with SP 2.
Issue is i can power on or off the wireless radio only from adapter configuration settings by selecting a option there to turn on/off the wireless.
No software is able to switch its power state or for that matter even find out if its already on.
All software report that wireless radio is off -- do you want to switch it on ? and are not able to do anything if said yes.
Thinkpads have Fn + F5 key combination to control wireless radio - but even there the turning on or off does not effect the status of radio.
As a result both access connections and default windows wireless configuration tool are not able to detect any network.
Any help would be appreciated.
