I run a Windows XP Home, SP3 which is fully updated as of today. The system is a Toshiba Laptop Satellite L310. For the past week I noticed that my laptop slowed down and was literally unusable. I re-imaged my OS from a saved image (from DriveImage XML). I have applied all the updates after this and the driver update for the Intel®PRO Wireless 3945 ABG Network Connection is current. But I find that my Wireless Network Connection shows up as "not connected" My laptop is able to see all the different wireless networks and I am allowed access to all these networks but I simply cant connect

Does any error messages show up when you try to connect to a wireless network?

When I choose the wireless network from about 4 to which I have access and enter the key, the connection then shows "automatic". When I use the "repair" option by right-clicking the tray icon, the end result is something like, "the selected operation could not be done because could not connect to the wireless network"
