While you wait for analysis of crash report, try installing both the ethernet and wireless driver in XP Compatibility Mode.

I'd want to get online using ethernet to have optional Updates deliver newer drivers.

The tool you linked didn't appear mate. The result of the ethernet + adapters drivers was successfull. the wireless adapter worked untill i installed Avast anti-virus and restarted my computer due to some updates. Since then it hasn't worked, it is connected to my wireless network but refuses to enable in network connections.

Sorry the links are there now so you can trace bluescreen cause.

Are you saying driver was delivered by Updates when connected via ethernet which solved this?

If not righclick System Tray connection icon to Troubleshoot wireless.

Uninstall Avast if it is causing problems with your wireless which is so rare I can't remember it ever before, but possible. Install Microsoft Security Essentials instead.

I checked online for drivers for the Belkin 54G adapter & the latest drivers (if you can call it that) only mention Win XP as the latest compatable OS. You may have to buy something more up-to-date with Win 7 compatability.

Rightclick on connection icon in bottom right System Tray when only the wireless adapter is connected, select Troubleshoot Problems. It should give you an idea what the problem is.

Post up the bluescreen report to our Crashes Forum along with a description of the problem causing the crash.

I agree with that suggestion for MSE! I recently dumped Avast off my wife's PC - I can't remember why I hadn't installed MSE on hers. Avast recently added a Outlook Plugin that was causing lockups in Outlook, so it was time to go!

Ill give it a go. The thing is my computer defaults as a wired connection even when there is none and when i disable the wired connection it insists its still there.
