Windows 7: BSOD when accessing public wifi networks...

BSOD when accessing public wifi networks...

Hi all,

New to the forum, but I've been having some major issues. I recently moved to a new area. In doing so, it's taking some time to get internet set up at my new place. In the mean time I'm using a public access point (a coffee shop or library) and every time I get on the internet, it crashes exactly every 6 minutes. I have a million minidump files, but I've attached only the most recent, and assume they will all be similar if not the same.

Can anyone analyze this and tell me what's going on or how to fix it. I'm in safemode now, it's the only way to use the internet without crashes.

If you have wifi software installed. Uninstall it and allow windows to recognize the wireless device and install its own drivers.

Windows is currently set up to configure my wifi. I don't have any software for that.
