I have a Dell 600m Laptop with a Intel PRO wireless card #0C9063.   The card will not recoginize any access point.  The System reports that the card is working fine.   I reinstalled driver and even replaced the card..... Still doesnt work.   Please suggest other areas that I should check!

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Which OS is this?
Is it fully patched?

have you configured everything right in your WLAN - profiles ?


OS:  XP Home

Patches:  Updated with Service Pack 3

SSID is broadcasting, have tested on two different network @ two different locations

That was it.   I had checked it previous but it different seem to do anything (Fn + F2).  So I did it again and pressed Refresh and up came the network.   Thanks
I get this so often - i now make it part of the process when i sell a laptop to show people where this is.

a lot of laptops have a little switch at the front near the latch to open it up..hence you often turn it off when opening.
typically turns off all wireless devices - including bluetooth.
