RE: Internet Explorer Disabling Wireless ??!
Johan, I am having a similar problem in setting up a new Vostro with
802.11draftN. However, if yours worked once, it also be that your IE got
corrupted by spyware.
Can you plug into a network connection? can you use Firefox? If firefox
works over wireless, and IE won't work over wired, you might try to insure no
viruses/spyware have messed up your HOSTS paths. Procedures at MajorGeeks.com
Otherwise, I'm in the same boat and have no answer.
