Hi Guys,

I have another laptop with no wireless connection for you to look at - I have done a heap of research but can't find anything that has helped for my specific problem. The laptop came with Win 7 Pro, which I completed the initial installation of before burning recovery discs and removing it - as part of the Win 7 install the laptop hooked up fine to my wireless network, so I know the hardware is OK.

No matter what I try the system says... Network - Disconnected - you are now offline

Have posted details below according to the HOWTO for wireless issues...
