PROSet is Intel's configuration software for the PRO/Wireless series of wireless adapters. It allows tight control of Wireless networks and will tell you what the MAC Address is on your adapter.
I used to have problems with IBM driver version numbers too, when I had an Aptiva.
I recently got a reconditioned X40 with a wireless adapter built in. I received almost no documentation, but through trial and error I got everything running except making a wireless connection. I keep getting an error message stating that I don't have the lastest driver for my Intel pro/wireless lan 2100 3b mini adapter and that I need version 188.8.131.52. When I go to the IBM website, the driver available there is 184.108.40.206 which appears to be an upgrade of 220.127.116.11. According to the documentation on the website, version 18.104.22.168 includes 22.214.171.124 which supports WEP (which my network uses.)
Whatever my problem is, I suspect it's something small that I'm missing since I can SEE my network and also one of my neighboor's.
I also use MAC ID's for security and I'm wondering if I'm using the wrong MAC ID. I'm using the ID that is printed on the bottom of the laptop. However, when I run BELARC, it lists a different ID.
Anyone got a website that explains in detail how to setup to receive a wireless network?
