Kelley, I had the same problem when I installed a new router. Now I'm using Windows to manage my wireless, so at least I have web access. Right click on the intel proset icon in your tray and select Use Windows to manage wi-fi. If someone out there knows, I would like a solution that allows me to use the Intel ProSet as it provides a stronger and more consistent wireless signal strength than with Windows. Windows keeps dropping the connection and closes my VPN client.
I have the exact same problem that Kelly posted last year. I am using a Netgear Router, which I can connect to wirelessly just fine with my netbook. However, with my Dell laptop, my wireless connection to the Router (using INTEL PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) has been sporadic at best. Yesterday, when it would not connect at all, I updated the driver (PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility) from 10.1.0.3 to 188.8.131.52.
When I am trying to "Create Profile" (as no profiles are in the list), I get an ERROR message "An internal database error occured when saving/updating the profile." The only choice in this dialog box is an OK button. I cannot figure out any way around the error. I hope that someone can help point me in a direction to solve this problem.
Thank you (in advance)
Its the same problem for me here. A workaround to this error is to apply write permissions for your user to "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Intel\Wireless\Settings" folder.
Normally the all user folder is readable only, but Intel ProSet Wireless wants to write there to store your profile.
Why that is ? Hell knows.... We also wish we could change this.
