I have uninstalled the intel drivers & removed all copies of the driver from my laptop. I have installed the Dell Truemobile drivers with no success. I am not sure if the wifi card is dell or intel, is there any way of knowing for sure?
When I reboot my system now it asks me specifically for the "Intel (R) Pro/Wireless 2100 LAN miniPCI Adapter" driver. Could the old driver just be cached somewhere on the system?
When I have the "Intel (R) Pro/Wireless 2100 LAN miniPCI Adapter" driver installed, my laptop will find the wireless router signal & try connecting to it. It will then bring up an error saying it cannot connect and I should contact the network administrator, which is myself. On my wireless router I have allowed it to assign only 1 of 3 ip addresses. I have entered one of these ip addresses instead of "obtain ip address automatcally" in the tcp/ip properties of the wireless network. Then when I do an "ipconfig" I get a message saying "media disconnected". This seems to me that the laptop still cannot communicate correctly with the wifi card.
Has anyone else found this problem or does anyone know how to fix it,

I was having a similar problem once, except running win2k. After installing all the drivers from the cd, the pc would freeze when trying to run the Intel Prostep config util for the wireless. I called tech support after a while and the tech said that you have to install the drivers in a certain order. tried finding the information again on the website, with no luck. you think that's the kind of info they would give us...
anyway, you might have to re-install the OS and install the drivers in a certain order. if I find it, i'll post
