Hi, I dont know if this is right

Hi, I dont know if this is right


I dont know if this is right forum for my problem.
I have a laptop with built in Intel "PRO/wireless 2100 3B". Recently, I was trying to hook it up to my home network that has Linksys wireless Router.
For Some reason my laptop fails to see the routher even if both the machines are in a same room. I know the routher is working fine because I did a little experement with an external wireless network card (linksys) in my laptop and it was able to see the router.
Any ideas?
I am network challanged as some of my friends would like to say.
I would appreciate your help/advice.



RE: Hi, I dont know if this is right

I found the problem. All I had to do was to throw the broadband swithc on my laptop to on!!
Like I said I am network challenged.
