Running WinXP Pro sp3 on T60 (2623-D3U).
I lost wireless capability after installing Access Connection 5.12.
I uninstalled Access Connections, WLAN drivers, Keyboard and HotKey, and Power Management.
I re-installed in the following sequence:
Power Management v1.51a
Keyboard Customization from 1qkcb9ww.exe
Hot Key from 7zvu08ww.exe
WLAN from 7vwc23ww.exe
Access Connections 5.12
I even re-installed TVSU.
Nothing shows up with Find Wireless Networks in the Productivity Center, but if I use the Windows Wireless Connection I can get the wireless connection to work. But means I have to change the advanced settings every time.
I rolled back the v12 driver for the 3945ABG connection to v188.8.131.52, but that didn't help.
Has anyone a suggestion/solution that will will allow me to get things working properly?

Well, after spending the day on the phone with three different techs, none of whose official answers matched, I still don't have Access Connections 5.12 working.
Here is the latest information on what's been applied. Note, the sequence is critical, although support is not in agreement as to which is the correct sequence. I'm not including the ones proven to have been wrong - there were three.
For a T60 (2623-D3U) running Win XP Pro with sp3:
MIGRA- download directory version comment
70602 7zu707ww.exe PWRMGR 1.51a
68000 7zvu08ww.exe HOTKEY 5.20.0 / 2.0.4
52527 7rwc09ww.exe WLLANATH 184.108.40.206 Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
4ZLNJB 7vcx83ww.exe ACCON 5.12
I've uninstalled Access Connections 5.12 and will let Windows manage wireless connections.
Now all I have to do is figure out why all the installs/re-installs managed to trigger an Outlook Express compaction note.
I don't even use Outlook Express...
If anyone ever figures this all out, please let me know.
