    Toshiba Laptop w/ XP:

    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.

    If this adapter is internal, try the driver from Tosh site, specific to your
    model

    SP3 for WinXP contains a whole series of fixes for wireless issues. Search this
    article for "wireless" to see:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946480

    If you decide to update to SP3 and may want to revert to IE6 be sure to
    uninstall IE7 and/or IE8 beforehand. See this article for more details,
    especially the note regarding third-party wireless network adapters.

    I'll try these suggestions starting with the Toshiba driver and then SP3
    suggestion.

    Thanks.
    I'll update what I find out.
