Wireless network - unable to recognise

By tk ·
I have an ethernet based lan, to which I have added a wireless access point. On my notebook, my ieee 802.11b wirelss pcmcia card registers an excellent connection with the the correct device(MAC address matches the access point box MAC). The access point indicator lights indicate a connection to a functioning network.
I cannot however detect the access point from anywhere in the system and cannot therefore access the lan from my notebook. Switching to a cable allows connection to the network but defeats the point of the wireless access. I am running win 2000 pro on all machines.TCP/IP settings are set to automatic. Even a full reinstall with notebook lan card disabled in BIOS produces same result. I am reasably certain that it is not a hardware fault or resource conflict.Can anyone give some pointers how to sort this out? Have I missed something really basic?
