I did a fresh install on of Windows XP Pro on my Lenovo Thinkpad T61P, but my Intel wireless card does not find any networks to connect to. I'm 2 feet away from my router. It doesn't find any of the nearby networks it used to display either. I installed the appropriate driver (http://www-307.ibm.c....cid=MIGR-70504) and according to my device manager it is working properly. I know I performed my fresh install correctly because I followed a guide (http://forum.noteboo...ad.php?t=188992) that I've used twice before. My Device Manager doesn't display any other problems. Any advice with this issue is greatly appreciated. Oh, I also tried using a previous release of the driver to no avail.

I've updated the Bios and made sure that all Network capabilities where "Enabled," however the issue is still the same :) :) :)

Problem solved. Seems like I toggled the wireless radio slider (which I didn't even realize I had and is located in the front of the laptop) off. You can check the radio status by selecting fn-f5. It brings an applet to choose between bluetooth and wifi radio options.
