That's what I was trying to avoid. The PC is out of warranty and they will charge a nice fee for support which, since they don't provide recovery disks for computers anymore, isn't very fair. I don't want to put a bunch of money into a $600 PC that should be able to fix myself. I'll keep tinkering I suppose but I can't get that WIMAX 6150 off the PC right now. I tried to manually delete the registry entries but it wouldn't let me.
Thanks for trying to help, I do appreciate it.

Brucegz, in your screen shot I see you have exclamation or question marks for the SM BUS, network controller, etc. That would lead me to believe there is a problem with the Chipset driver. Try reinstalling the Chipset driver first and then install the Intel Management Interface Driver. Then see if that resolves your problem.
Here are the downloads of those two files......
The Windows 7 Chipset Driver.....
The Intel Management Engine Driver......

One last suggestion,
Try this driver for your Wireless
WiMAX_7.5_s64.exe That's Directly from Intel
If that didn't solve it
If you could run another Clean WIndows 7 installation.
Try this installing the drivers in this sequence.
Restart he computer after chipset installation
NVIDIA Display Driver (If your system has dual graphics)
Hope this helps

I finally had a chance to run a fresh install and load all the drivers from your instructions. I just want to report that it worked and your help and everyone's time in this thread is greatly appreciated. Fantastic resource!!!
