<<Louis, I'm on a Toshiba M35-S320. Is it the same wireless driver as the Lenovo (IBM)?>>
Your bug report indicates that this is the problem. Any driver on any system...is determined by the components inside, with none exclusive to any manufacturer of systems.
Take a look at some of the links at http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&sou...mp;oq=&aqi=
and you will see what I mean.
<<Is it possible that there is a conflict with the router which cascades to the BSOD? In other words, is there any sense in investing in a higher quality wireless router for the CA home?>>
I suppose anything is possible in ComputerLand...but I try not to look for complex answers when simple ones will do. Your bug report indicates that this driver is your problem. Simply uninstalling it and reinstalling a fresh driver should verify/refute that premise, IMO.
<<So, if I uninstall the current driver and install the latest version, shouldn't I create a restore point in case the new one doesn't work? Will a System Restore put the old driver back where it was? I'm sorry if I sound ignorant. It's just that I am an old geezer who is pretty new to this tech stuff.>>
I don't use System Restore (I rely on backups which I make periodically)...so I can't answer that for you. Logically...since your current driver is creating problems, I don't see why having the capability to restore such...would be advantageous. That is, unless you think that the debug report is inaccurate. Uninstalling drivers and replacing them is a routine task with Windows.
My approach with computer situations...is to try what is suggested by those whom I consider more knowledgeable than I happen to be. If that proves not to be a solution for me...I know how to try again, research more...or, worst case, do a clean install of XP.
Uninstalling a driver is pretty much on the same par with uninstalling a program, deleting a file, etc., IMO. If you backup/set restore points before doing those types of things, then follow your normal procedures which are designed to give you peace of mind.
<<...I sure appreciate your willingness to help.>>
Sharing knowledge, trying to help others without hurting myself...those things are fundamental to my nature. Considering that I benefit every day of my life from knowledge/experiences which others have put forth in the public domain...it's no great act on my part to try to pass a tiny piece of that on
The forum is a good vehicle for that...for most, if not all, who post suggestions for those seemingly in need of such.
