I'm having a weird issue with a new Laptop and wireless.
The Laptop is a HP Elitebook 2530p . It has an Intel wireless WiFi Link 5100 AGN nic.
Running Windows XP sp3.  Allowing Windows to control the wireless network connections.
When it firsts boots up, it will connect automatically to our wireless network, surfing and network resources work fine.  However if I disconnect it and try attaching to a different wireless, it goes thru the connecting to network screen but eventually times out.  When I try to connect back to the original wireless, it also fails.  It won't work again until I reboot.
I've tried:
Updating to lateset driver.
Rolling back to a different driver.
Uninstall/Reinstall
Disabling Windows Firewall.
Using the HP Connections monitor.
I see this Information event in the System Event Log
Event: 5005
Source: NETw5x32
Description:
          The description for Event ID (5005) in Source (NETw5x32) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE=flag to retrieve the discription; see Help andSupport for details. The following information is part of the event:, Interl(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN.

Im stumped here. any help would be appreciated.

Not sure why this worked but, when we enabled the bluetooth wireless card and installed all its features, the Wireless NIC starting working as intended.
