I think the Dell 2200 may have a program (look on Start > All Programs) which needs to be run to enable wireless. Also, some laptops have a button at the front/side which you push to enable wireless. If you don't have a user manual you can download it from here - maybe give you some more ideas.

Are you sure that the laptop have a wireless card

NOTE from Dell Inspiron 2200 Manual:

Wireless networking equipment is optional for some systems and may not be included with your computer

Check that a wireless card is listed in Network Connection or the Device Manager

Using the FN (Function) key you have to hold down the FN key and press the F2 to Enable the

Wireless card as stated in the manual

You can also Enable/Disable from inside the Network Connection Area

Click Start-Setting-Network Connection-Right click on the Wireless Area Connection-Enable or

Disable as required

Some times you have to Disable and Enable before the card will connect to the wireless system
