Apologies for the dramatic title. I cant seem to get wireless working anymore. When I go into the Device Manager and right-click on "Intel® Pro/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter" and enable it, I get an instant BSOD. Ive tried it twice with the same result. Im running Windows XP SP3. Ive check that the driver is the latest version and it is. Also I do not have any questionmarks in the device manager.

Would really appreciate some assistance here.

Pls post stop message and error codes on the BSOD if it immediately reboots disable restart on failure so you can read the BSOD message
My initial research leads me to ask "Is this a Dell computer"

If so it is a known problem, check if this is the driver you have, if NOT download and install this one

The installation instructions are on the link.
Pls check first that it is for your computer if it is a DELL
If not post back pls
