Hi Westfall, You have tried all 7 wireless drivers and none have worked !!! Maybe the wlan card is dead

Go to device manager and locate the unknown device. Right click on it and go to properties. In the properties window, go to the details tab and in the dropdown menu, go down to hardware ID's and post the top value here so we can help you.

I would think it would be the latest WiMAX driver at the top of the page on the Asus driver site.

If the wireless NIC won't come up in Device Manager then you might try shutting the system down completely, unplug from the wall for a bit then boot up and maybe will come up.

If Westfall hasn't visited the Windows Update site then that would be my first move after a clean install...probably hundreds of updates some of which should fix the driver problem.
