    I have a Sony Vaio VGNTX17GP with Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network
    Connection. Driver Version I checked the hardware ID from Intel's
    website. Also fixed known issues like : Operating Systems&lang=eng

    When i try to connect to any wireless network, i fail. Even though i try to
    use widows to manage my wireless, it sits on the connecting stage and then
    drops out.
    Earlier it used to work fine on my machine. I have tried to re-install win
    XP but i get the same problem.
    Please advice.

    Somewhere on the laptop should be a tiny switch of the wi-fi radio.
    Turn it on; this helps ;)

    Here is the manual for your model:

    Come on ... How else do you think i will get networks to connect to ?
    The wireless is turned ON.
    There seems to be some other problem.

    Anyone else ?

    This is a known problem with 2200BG just do a search and you will find
    all sorts of info. It is annoying some just fix it by getting the
    latest drivers and turning the power management on the wi-fi card to
    max and that helps. This has not helped for me yet still trying to
    figure out a solution on the Motion tablet.

    Nope.... This one did not do anything.
    I wonder what the problem is since the symptoms keep changing. Initially....
    the connection would break off and on.. and now, it just refuses to connect.
    It gets frustrating when you buy a laptop with inbuilt wireless !!
