Wireless Network Adapter Causing Crashes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN and it keeps crashing my laptop. I would be working and my screen would freeze and my computer would remain unresponsive. This only happens when I turn on my laptop's wireless card.

I tried multiple drivers but the later ones froze my computer faster. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and it still does the same.

Have you tried uninstalling the network drivers and let windows install drivers for you upon reboot?
Have done all your microsoft updates?

Yes and yes. It doesn't freeze as quickly when I use the drivers Microsoft provides but it's still annoying and I'm worried that continuous, forced shut downs are going to break something eventually.
