Dell Wireless WLAN Card problem
Can anyone give me some advice please?
I frequently get an error message saying, "Dell Wireless WLAN Card Wireless Network Controller stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly."

There doesn't seem to be any changes so I'm at a loss as to why this is appearing. I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop, run Vista HP, Avast AV, and Firefox is my browser. I also use Incredimail as my mail server.

Any ideas as to what I can do?

Reload the wireless drivers, even though they're the latest ones. This sounds like a driver corruption issue.
