    Dead Realtek RTL8187B

    Hello all. Greetings from Mexico.

    Im attempting to tune-up a friend's netbook.

    Running XP Home

    Wireless is Realtek RTL8187B and it is not seeing any networks at all (and I know my network is running, as are 3 or 4 nearby).

    24 hours ago it was working more or less OK although a bit unstable and has now given up the ghost.

    Reinstalled latest driver per Realtek's site; no result. Not a single network is visible.

    Wired Ethernet works fine.

    Any way to verify via software if the card is fried? (no way am I going to try and open the machine).

    Thanks in advance...
