Windows Vista crashes when wireless connection is made.

Hello all,

I am experiencing this same issue and was getting the same bcwml6.sys broadcom error. I open a case with Dell and so far they have replaced the wireless card with and new on and now they replaced it with an Intel 3945 ABG wireless card. I have upgraded and down graded device drivers on all network adapters and have even done a system restore to a time before the problem.

My laptop blue screens right when I make the connection to the wireless network and it crashes on both secure and unsecured wireless networks.

I know the wireless cards works becuase when I boot into safemode with network support I am able to connect to a wireless network just fine.

I'm have to assume that this is connected to software, but which one ? I don't want to re-install Vista becuase I have some many utilities installed.

Did anyone ever find a resolution for Vista Blue screening when wireless connection established?


Thanks

did you install any sniffer, vpn client or any other software that needs to interface with the network subsystem? If so, try to remove that from the system and see if that helps.

kunko,

I just uninstalled all sniffer and VPN software same BSOD.
Still when I boot in safe mode wireless works.

Checked all the servies associated wireless and they start up in both boot modes, normal and safemode.

can you post these files here:

  C:\Users\pjobst\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-145346-0.sysdata.xml
  C:\Users\pjobst\AppData\Local\Temp\WERA5DF.tmp.version.txt

(from your first problem description).

BTW: Are there any other tools that interfere with networking?

Kukno,

It was taking so long to fix this wireless BSOD problem I decided that it would be easier to re-install Vista.

I was hoping that the re-install would be similar to XP re-install, but of course Microsoft F*$#ED that up as well. Doing an install over the top of an existing Vista actually does a complete wipe and re-install of the OS and makes a copy on the Windows users folder and names it windows.old.

Vista is such a piece of Poo operating system. One more nail in the coffin for Microsoft. I am only using Vista because I will need to support Vista for work soon. But I have a feeling everyone may be going to Linux or MAC.

BTW - after the re-install on Vista the wireless NIC works fine. My guess is that one of Microsoft updates caused problems with SonicWall VPN software.  But I'll never know for sure.


Microsoft Vista BOOOOOOOOOO

Thanks for the Help

Vista is already blue screening and not starting after MS updates being installed.

Vista = BIG PIECE of POOP
