Hi bajoplayer, I had the same problem and there is an IntelŽ PRO/Wireless Driver Update to correct this problem. The update was released by Intel on 4/9/09 and corrects the problems for PCs with the following driver versions and Vista Home Premium 64-bit operating system:
Microsoft Windows Vista* 64-Bit Drivers for IntelŽ WiFi adapters.
Wi-Fi Driver Versions:
-IntelŽ WiMAX/WiFi Link 5350: 22.214.171.124
-IntelŽ WiMAX/WiFi Link 5150: 126.96.36.199
-IntelŽ WiFi Link 5300: 188.8.131.52
-IntelŽ WiFi Link 5100: 184.108.40.206
-IntelŽ Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN: 220.127.116.11
-IntelŽ PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection: 18.104.22.168
If this applies to you, then go to your hardware mfr's support site and search for the updates for your particular pc model. The driver update should be in the wireless or network categories.
I tried just about everything else for the last month until I found this fix. I downloaded 3 days ago and it has taken care of the problem.
