this is pathetic, you would think there would be a fix to this problem. I have spent 3 days going over message boards and help lines about this problem and no one really knows the answer. I just found this site and although I have tried all that is listed here it is great to see all the potential answers in one posting. That being said I still can’t figure this out. I have an Acer 6920 with an Intel 4965agn wireless adapter built in. running vista home premium. in addition to the suggestions here I have installed every different version of the driver I could find and no luck I have tried a complete restore and even installing vista ultimate 32 bit to see if it was just a 64 bit issue - note it is slightly more stable with the 32 bit os but still will not last I have again restored it to the 64 bit vista home. some times I can get it working for a few minutes then it quits. and sometimes I get local assess only, sometimes (most of the time) vista "disables" the adapter and it will not enable without uninstalling and reinstalling and other times it just completely disappears. and I have to reboot several times to get it visible again. I would send the ipconfig but that really will not help since sometimes it says there is no adapter installed and other times it is there. and before you say it is the adapter I have pulled it out and put it in Acer 5620 running xp and it works there. I know this is a long post but this is driving me crazy Intel or Microsoft or somebody need to get this together. if this was my computer I would have through it away by now. I really would appreciate any and all ideas or if you know an internal adapter that I get that will not have these issues let me know and I will go that way. I have dealt with a lot a facers with this same adapter and have not seen this issue before but from what I have read it is very common. If I find anything that works for more than a couple of hours I will be sure to past it here
