Gaming rig huh? I know windows Xp had wirelesszero to manage wireless connections. Does Win7 have a similar service that you might have turned off to speed up your gaming?
yes, and no its not turned off, i have it opened in one of the screen shots. i checked msconfig and services to make sure nothing was disabled. I also double checked win features just to be sure. the win7 autofix tool says that there might be a problem with the driver, however after uninstalling/reinstalling getting most up to date via internet after cd didnt work. So i dont see how the driver could really be the issue. I dont believe it is a bunk card because my usb wireless stick does not work either in a similar fashion, and i know it works ive used it many times in laptops/handheld devices.
