appreciate the response...when I try to log into command prompt as administrator, it is password XXXXX so I cannot do that. The PC is a corporate one, which does, however, successfully receive wireless signals from other devices.
Should I try your original fix as regular user (non-administrator) or should we try plan B?
OM Gosh, I just realized that I had XP on the corporate machine, not Windows 7...sorry about the redirect...
No go on that fix..darn..
Given my recent revelation that I am actually using XP, and not Windows 7, I wonder if there is a SP download that would do the trick...I saw something to that effect on internet
Ok here goes
1394 Net Adapter
Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card
Intel (R) 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection
Success! It worked. Thank you so much for your hard work.
