Trouble with Inspiron 6000 with Intel PROSet/Wireless
Posted on 2006-07-20
Someone from another office recently quit and their laptop was sent here to be used. I was told to do a fresh install, which I did. I wasn't given the drivers, so I downloaded everything from Dell. Well, here's my problem. After installing the Intel PROSet Wireless driver, I've been getting all sorts of problems.
After it finds a network, I click on it and it lists the WAPs it has found. When I try to scroll over it, I'm unable to. All of a sudden, the thing keeps searching and the program starts eating up the processor. The only way to stop the thing is to end the task.
I tried to allow Windows to handle the wireless connection, but there isn't a Wireless Network tab in the Wireless Connection properties.
