hey Alphapoint,

try this, uninstall the Wifi LAN drivers. let Windows install its generic drivers.

test your connection with the generic drivers. See if that works, then install the drivers from our support site but before you install it, go to MSCONFIG and set your unit to Diagnostic mode first before installing.
