I just updated my Dell Latitude 410 with a clean install of Windows 7 (from XP) and cannot get the wireless network adaptor to work. Within Device Manager and under Network Adaptors I do find Intel(R)PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection. The Network Map shows the icon and name of my wireless network. However, when I choose Manage Wireless Networks (Wireless Network Connection) my wireless network is not listed.

So, it looks normal (with no yellow exclamation point mark) in Device Manager?
If so then a great deal of concern over the driver is eliminated.

Yet, there are other things that can cause this:
- no actual signals nearby
- the wireless function turned off on the computer.  (Not in Windows).

I would reset the whole thing with:

netsh int ip reset

No yellow exclamation point.
The signal is very strong on my other devices.

Do I type netsh int ip reset in the Run window?

I've been to that Dell Detect site and DL'd the wireless driver mentioned in my original question. My question still is, where do I type in "nesh int ip reset"

Commented:
Note Dell is not the manufacturer from Intel(R)PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network card.

Here you will get the latest driver (Newer than from DELL and from Windows update):
