Wireless not connecting
I'm having problems with an Acer A670 that will not connect to the network wirelessly 4 times out of 5. It's running win7 and a Netgear WNA1000M N150 wireless USB micro adapter. If I disable and re-enable the wireless adapter it works ok till the machine is next restarted then it's a lottery if the wireless connects again.
I've installed the latest drivers from Netgear but it's not helped and there's nothing in the event log apart from the warnings that it can't find a DC.

If you try the USB adapter in another machine, is it more consistent?

I had this problem but with US Robotics adaptors (I know there ancient) but I un-installed the software and just manually installed the driver, worked fine after that

Mainboard drivers? It could be a problem with the USB port. I would try it on another PC to determine if the problem is the PC or USB Adapter.

I've changed the USB port and set the adapter to use B/G wireless only. After restarting the PC numerous times I've not had any problems so I'm considering it fixed.
Thanks everyone for your help.
