Wireless Adapter?Dell WLAN 1450 Dualband WLAN Mini-PCI Card

We have set up a wireless network at the small resort that uses Starband Satellite Internet.
I have checked and rechecked all of the setting for the Guest computer and the Wireless Access Point several times but sometimes the Guest Computer will connect to the network with no problems and at other times it will see the Access Point but will not connect to the Internet. This is the only computer that has this problem as all of the other guests can connect each and every time. Does anyone have any help or suggestions?

Wireless Adapter?Dell WLAN 1450 Dualband WLAN Mini-PCI Card

Oi! Setting off fire alarms for me.

We had similar problems at our company. I remember the fix was to download updated drivers from Dell and re-install... I remember because that was THE exact same Dell adapter, the 1450...

However, if it's a "Guest" Computer that may or may not be a good idea or even possible if the machine doesn't belong to you.
