    BSOD IRQL Less Than Or Equal Wireless

    Hi,

    I've got 4 laptops running XP that had been working for about a year with no problems and now I'm getting a blue screen as soon as they connect to a wireless network.

    Nothing has changed with the network at all and I'm also getting this problem at home.
    I have tried the latest drivers.
    I have tried older (apparently stable) drivers
    I have wiped one and started fresh
    I have disabled wireless N as someone suggested on a site from a google search

    The card is an Intel 2230

    If anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

    Thanks

    Any chance of a photo of the BSOD, if it reboots straight away etc and you don't have enough time to take a photo then if you keep pressing F8 ( as though you are going to boot into safe mode ) and one of the options should allow you to disable automatic reboot

    Which should stop it from restarting and allow you to take a photo of the BSOD

    A possible conflict with a Windows Update possibly? Have you looked at some of the recent updates installed, say Jan 2014/Dec 2013?

    Will have a go at getting a photo once I'm back at work.

    I haven't checked any updates but I've re-imaged a laptop from 6 months ago, which wouldn't have any new updates, and I'm still getting the problem.

    With this being an XP Machine, presume they are on SP 3 ?

    Is there any reason why they must be using XP? That wireless card is fairly new and would probably be better suited to the likes of Windows 7.

    They are student laptops and at the moment all student machines are still XP as some machines are just too old for windows 7 to run properly.

    We are actually looking into using 7 on the newer machines alongside XP on the old. Just trying to sort out profile issues. In the meantime I would like to get these working.
