Thanks to all in advance.

I have a Lenovo t61 laptop with an Intel wireless LAN 4965AGN card.
XP pro SP 3 fully patched as of yesterday

every time I boot - either cold or warm - you need to run a repair on the card to get it to connect. hardwired is fine.

if you turn the wireless radio on and off you need to repair to get it to connect.

I have tried multiple networks and also changed the hardware with the same result
I have download new drivers from lenovo with the same result.

any ideas?

You could run "netsh int reset all" to reset windows networking. There may also be other netsh commands to clear specific areas you can use. Note that this will tend to remove any static IP configuration though.

Try opening ThinkVantage Access Connections (Fn + F5), go to Configure > Global Connections and turn off “Enable automatic wireless LAN radio control”.

Or if you're not using ThinkVantage - run Services.msc and set the Wireless Zero Configuration service to start automatically.
