Vista Wireless Issue - "Windows cannot connect to (network)"

Hello everyone...

I've never imagined myself actually posting foir help, but I'm at the
point that i don't know what else to do...

I own a Dell Inspiron 1420.. Which i recently formatted.

The first thing i tried to install was the driver for my Intel(R)
Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN. So i can get Online and continue restoring
my system..

I installed the driver right off of my Dell Resource CD, for Drivers
and Utilities..

I tried to connect to my router, and BOOM, I got that error, Windows
cannot connect to SDS-Network, which is my network..

note: The issue is not my router, my wife's laptop connects, and so
does my other pc that has a wireless card in it.. + my laptop gets the
same error for every other network in the area... and there are quite a
few.


Moving on,
I went to dell.com, and tried with the drivers from them after entering
my Service Tag: 621KLD1..

same issue..

Tried with the same drivers, but for XP instead of Vista..

same issue..

Went to intel.com, got their drivers..

same issue..

I also saw a thread online, about someone with the same problem, but
his problem was fixed by going into the card's advanced properties and
and changing a setting to disabled, i forget which setting it was, but i
did try that also, and..

same issue..

I also tried something I also saw online about some registry entry
thing that was missing, and that didn't work either..

same issue.

I am quite desperate... I need my laptop for work, i am a web
developer, and without connection, i can't work.

Please.. if anybody knows the deal or is willing to help, any help will
be greatly appreciated..

use your wife's laptop, go to the Dell site, get the LATEST drivers
for the wireless card, use a USB flash drive and transfer to the
Dell and install. what happens then?
