    I just ran the Windows XP Help and Support, Network Diagnostics and I got a FAILED for the following areas:
    Network Adapters FAILED
    [00000010] Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection FAILED
    DNSServerSearchOrder FAILED
    198.153.192.50 FAILED
    198.153.194.50 FAILED

    I've been having some wireless issues and I am not sure what this is telling me and what I can do about it to fix it. I checked with the Intel web site for network adapters and it appears that I have the latest driver.
    Any helpful suggestions?:confused:

    What are the issues?

    Have you tried the latest wireless driver from the PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's site? Does it work better or worse than the one directly from Intel's site?

    Are you using XP's WZC or Intel's Proset to manage the wireless connection? Are you sure that only one wireless utility is running?
