So if you have uninstalled the intel pro set or whatever the thing is called and now installed just the latest driver from Intel

the 1000$ question is, does it now log on to it immediately

OK I have the proset software running....re-installed and found it ...and I see that there are a ton of things I can try so we'll see how it goes. I see 2 or 3 logging screens that I need to enable on startup...automatically if possible.

It still screws up with any driver but I manipulated something with the proset software and will watch it. I also changed the channel.

I have the latest driver in there at the moment. 15.6. I may as well leave it in there.

It screwed up and I was able to capture some data for whatever good that will do.

With respect, one of us is getting confused I think

I am saying that my research shows that the Intel proset software MAY be the problem and uninstall it and use just the driver I sent

That is why I asked

Ok I will go back and un install the proset and just use the driver you sent..the 15.6...There is an option in the proset software to allow windows to control the driver and I will try that first just for the heck of it..then un instal the pro set.

Latest 15.6 driver is in, Pro Set stuff is uninstalled...still no go...put my cursor on the signal icon and it says not connected and networks are available. Same old thing.
Maybe the computer is glitched up somehow even tho it doesn't report any errors. I don't know. It connects most of the time which is better than nothing.

I give up -I hate doing that - but it has to be something very well hidden.

Can you borrow a usb wireless adapter and try that.

Don't know anyone that has one...I just took out the adapter then re-seated it and plugged the antenna back in and it didn't help. Maybe I should try another of the same adapter? They are not much money. Maybe I can get Intel to send me one to try...fat chance but worth a try. I'll look up usb adapters as well.
If there was a way to delay that WLAN service a bit in services.msc I suspect that might do it but it won't allow it. If I toggle it as quick as I can get there it connects.

I know I said I am not going to reload this thing...BUT, I am running out of options and I am forced into it. I just won't give up so I ordered the OEM disks for 12 bucks.

It runs good and does not report any errors but it has crashed and recovered and repaired itself. The wifi acted up before that happened, if I remember correctly.
I found out the hard way this machine doesn't like to boot from the 2nd hard drive (OEM) for whatever reason, probably operator error. I had better keep that OEM drive just as a storage backup.

I have another new Samsung 840 Pro ssd so we'll see how it goes. If that doesn't fix it I might try another 2230 adapter.

Drastic but possibly the best way
