    If the computer crashed, it is very probable the file system is compromised. I had the same problem recently with what was probably a faulty master file table on a NTFS data drive and the corrupted...

    Intel built-in usually works well, so I'd think it's not a dirver/hardware problem. Did you check whether you chose the right network security protocol, too? (WPA, WEP, etc...)
