Safe Mode with networking, loads only a minimal set of drivers.
For wireless you may use either the wireless card connection ie: Broadcom or you may use Windows Wireless Zero Configuration.
If you use both you may well experience this.
Alternatively it could be another service running that is NOT running in Safe Mode.
Have a look at Control Panel, Administrative functions, Services and scroll down to Windows Wireless.Double click that entry
See if that is disabled or enabled.
If it is disabled, set it to automatic, using the arrow at the side, of the word disabled and click automatic.
Then click Apply and OK
See if that works.
