Connection OK, but "network cable unplugged"

    I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 with a Truemobile 1150 WLAN Mini PCI card and an
    SMC 2671W access point. The PC can connect to the AP with "excellent"
    connection, but TCP/IP over this NIC isn't possible: the systray shows the
    "network cable unplugged" icon.

    OS is W2K SP3, I already de- and reinstalled the NIC drivers, updated the AP
    firmware, but all with no luck. My TCP/IP layers should be fine since I can
    connect to the LAN with the other (3COM, cabled) network card. Another PC
    can connect to the AP with no problems.

    Would anybody have a clue? I don't know what to do anymore ..

    Kind regards,

    It's SP4, of course. I'm sorry for the double post, tried to cancel it.

    I was able to resolve this issue! If somebody encounters the same problem:
    go to dell's website and download a file "w2kroute.exe"
    ( This whole thing appears to be a
    win route problem seen in W2K and I was able to get around it with this
