BSOD error code, hand-written by my uncle, so forgive us the typos:
0x0000008E (0x0000005, 0xB.F05A2C6, 0xEB90181C, 0x000000)
igxp.dv32.dll - Address B.F.05A2C6, base at B.F.04F000, datestamp 47B6002D.
There was a WGAErrorLog.txt, as found in the Windows\Temp\ directory, before we did anything: (Created April 26 2012)
Here are the details you requested:
Device Manager -> Network -> Wireless -> ICIDU Wireless N Client Adapter:
Device_ID - USB\VID_0CF3&PID_7015\12345
Hardware_ID's - USB\Vid_0cf3&Pid_7015&Rev_0202 and USB\Vid_0cf3&Pid_7015
Service - AR9271
Class_InstallationProgram - NetCfgx.dll,NetClassInstaller
Test_01: (RE-INSTALLED WIRELESS>
-ACTIONS: Un-installed Wireless Adapter as instructed, shut down, took out adapter physically, rebooted. (No network, no errors)
Shut down, connected wireless adapter again, booted, new hardware found and automatically installed as Wireless Network Adapter 2.
Please note the number "2" Re-connected to router by entering key, network found.
-RESULTS: As before, DNS-cache can't be cleaned, slow to connect at random (especially in the beginning), Youtube video cache is filled after a few seconds. Essentially exactly as before.
Test_02: <LAN ONLY>
-ACTIONS: Un-installed Wireless again, shut down, disconnected adapter, booted, no errors, shut down. Reset router, connected LAN-cable, booted system.
LAN found, but troublesome, although I'm not sure the router was fully rebooted again. Connected as LAN.
-RESULTS: As before, DNS-cache can't be cleaned, slow to connect at random, Youtube plays only a few seconds.
We noticed a full HD (720/1080) video stops after 4/7 seconds, and 320 videos after about 20 seconds. Internet radio plays for more then 10 minutes but eventually also stops.
-RESTORED: Disconnected LAN, re-booted and shut down. Then re-installed Wireless, which was troublesome.
We reconnected it to another USB port then before, and it was not recognized by the system at boot. we had to hot-plug the adapter in the USB-port-used-before to get it recognized. It's an old system, so maybe it was a USB1.0 port, I'm not sure. The system now connects to "Wireless Network 3"
1] Is it possible to permanently remove wireless connection 1, 2 & 3 in order to re-install Wireless 1?
2] Would it make a difference if we un-installed both network adapters, there is a LAN adapter (PCI / On-board) and a Wireless adapter (USB)? (We have the original drivers for the Dell LAN adapter and the Wireless drivers)
