I've been having a lot of difficulty with detection of wireless networks with my IBM High Rate MiniPCI Combo Card. Lately, the networks are detected intermittently and I wasn't able to detect what does it depend on.
My hardware is:
Thinkpad X24 (2662)
IBM High Rate MiniPCI Combo Card
When I first got the laptop, there hasn't been any problem. Now, however, when I go into Wireless Network Connection configuration window, no wireless network is detected, while I know there's more than one network available in the same location detected by other laptops.
Yesterday, it detected the networks for a brief period of time and then stopped doing so again after a reboot.
The device manager shows that the card is functioning properly, card status shows that the wireless is on and searching. I've tried removing, installing and updating drivers (the drivers are now latest available - 2.00.09), upgrading firmware (to 1.04) - nothing seems to help.
Is this a hardware or a software problem? Any ideas how to fix this?
