Wireless Networking Problem


U

I keep getting this message and have no idea how to fix it:

Wireless networking problem

You received this message because hardware or software in your computer
caused Windows to shut down unexpectedly and restart. This is a serious
problem, commonly referred to as a stop error or blue screen.

Although the specific cause of this problem is not known, it appears to be
related to wireless networking.


I went through all the steps it suggested up to the step that told me to do
this. The wireless adapter that I have is:
Name [00000008] Dell Wireless 1510 Wireless-N WLAN Mini-Card
Adapter Type Ethernet 802.3

there was a recent windows update that offered a new Broadcom
wireless driver. start your computer without wireless support (is
there a hardware button of key combo to do this?) or safe mode and
either rollback the driver through device manager or do a system
restore to a time before this started. then go to windows update and
HIDE the broadcom driver.

not sure this IS your issue, but it does seem likely.

I've been 'round and 'round with Dell on this. Problem not solved, but I'll
report back here if/when I'm successful.

Trying Barb's suggestion now...
