    I'm not showing any wireless connections in my "Choose a wireless
    network" screen. I can not update the driver from the device manager,
    this made me just uninstall the driver and reinstall from Intel's site.
    After doing this, it works, brings up all connections in my area and I
    can connect to one of them. But when I turn the computer off and turn
    back on, whether immediately or the next morning, there's no wireless
    connections anywhere. It's like there's no wireless network adapter
    available. I have retried the uninstall-reinstall drivers and once again
    it will work fine.

    Network Adapter:
    Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

    Any ideas?

    Toshiba Satelite Laptop
    Intel Core 2 CPU
    T5500 @ 1.66GHz
    Microsoft Windows XP
    Media Center Edition
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 2


    Thanks for any help.

    Jeff

    FWIW I had the same problem on a Dell desktop machine using a Netgear
    wireless card. It was suggested to me that the configuration profile had
    somehoe become corrupted which is why it would not load after a reboot.
    The solution was not to uninstall and reinstall the drivers, but to
    **DELETE THE DEVICE** in Device Manager and then reboot to allow the
    adaptor to be redetected and the profile rebuilt. It worked fine after
    that.

    I just seen a couple of other responses in the Windows XP forum that
    I'll also try, but I'll try this one first and see what happens.

    Thanks
