    I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 running on Windows XP that I recently reformated and reinstalled windows and a few of my applications onto. After reinstalling all my drivers and returning my configurations my Intel Pro Wireless 2200BG Wirelss Network Conn seems to have lost 3/4 of its transmitting range. I have tried reinstalling drivers, changing ip addresses, switching to windows controlled networking, installing drivers in a different order, chaning router settings, downloading new software from dell and intel, etc, etc, but cannot seem to restore the adaptor to its original range. Let me know if you have any suggestions. No spyware, viruses, virus protection software. It is really driving me crazy.

    I also have a Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller
    & 1394 Net Adaptor Installed

    Check to see if the antenna leads have come loose. If you don't still have the paper document that shows how to get to those leads look for the Maintenance manual for your model on Dell's web site.
