Debugging Intel PRO/Wireless Connectivity on Windows


Hi,
I have an Intel 2915ABG and use it with a Linksys WRT54GSv1 (latest firmware).
Every now and then the connection has issues where the PRO/Wireless indicates
that there is a connection, but no traffic goes back or forth. I am then force
to toggle the radio switch, and if I'm really unlucky, I have to power cycle
the machine.
What I would like to know is whether there is a way to get the PRO/Wireless
driver/software to log events regarding the connection, and I mean detailed,
low-level logging; not the useless info provided by the Wireless Event Viewer.
There is some info in the Windows registry that indicate the existence of a
logging service, but unfortunately it is specified as not installed, and I
couldn't find any helpful info about it.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I guess I had same problem, take a look at you computer OS services, you'll have Windows Wireless Zero wireless Config, and Intel Wireless config service, I disabled the Intel, and made sure the windows wireless zero was enabled, rebooted and have worked like a dream since.

Yeah, I stumbled across this a while ago, but didn't give it a try since it involves Microsoft's zero-config wireless service, which I don't think comes into play when using the PRO/Wireless tools.
Nevertheless, I decided I might as well give it a try and see what happens, even though the amount of logged information is overwhelming, and it will take me a while to figure out what's going on.

So you are using Microsoft's UI to hookup to wireless networks, right? I'd rather use the PRO/Wireless tools, but it probably wouldn't hurt to give the MS stuff a try to see if the same connectivity problems occur. If they do, then it is probably a driver issue, and I'm inclined to contact Intel tech support to ask them on how to get some connection debugging info, as I'm sure they have their own ways.
