I am unable to access the wireless network tab and its contents although I can access the General Tab and the Advanced Tab in Wireless Network Connection Properties Window. Instead I get an error that sayas explorer.exe caused the error and the MOD in play was netshell.dll. Also, the executable which I presumed was by the hardware vendor BCMWLTRY.exe sometimes shows in the error message with either netshell.dll or ntdll.dll as the MOD involved.

I tried to just do a plain copy of the netshell.dll to the directory. I assume the problem is with netshell.dll. IS that the correct assumption ? Also, I couldn't copy it since it's in use. Is it a matter of just disabling all netowkr connections ?

Ok, could you check with the vendor it is their file or not...

No. Nada.

No. Possible reasons are 1. Buggy WLAN device driver - check with the vendor for update; 2. some 3rd party software
interferes in communication between netshell.dll and the WLAN device driver.
