I am still running windows 2000 on an IBMT20 Laptop. Dont laugh, it works well.

I have an Aironet 340 pc card installed and it has no trouble connecting to the nearest wireless lan automatically.

But in XP, there is a facility to view wireless networks and gives their status.

How can I do this in Windows 2000? Is there a utility that I can download and install to W2K?

i would suggest you to use the Aironet Client Utility to configure the wireless adapter. This tool also shows the available networks.

You can download it from the software download section.
