    4965AGN Windows 7 driver issue


      This is my first post on the Intel community site. I just purchased and installed a new 4965AGN wireless ethernet card into my wife's MSI A6200 (CR620) laptop which is running Windows 7 home premium 64-bit. I removed the existing Atheros card (which was in the slot for smaller cards) and installed the 4965AGN into the other slot since it is a larger card. The installation went fine and when I turned on the laptop it installed the Windows driver for the card. I then proceeded to install the Intel driver () along with the Intel wireless management software. At this point, I was expecting the wireless icon to show up in the tray but it said that there was no card plugged in. I checked the device manager and it showed the card and said it was working correctly.


      I then opened up the network and sharing center and clicked on the wireless connection to diagnose the connection. It ran and said that there are driver issues. I switched back to the Microsoft driver and got the same result. When I run the manual tests it says that there is either no card installed or that the driver doesn't support the tests.


      Can anyone tell me what might be going on here? Is there some kind of problem with the latest driver and Windows 7? Any ideas on how to proceed to get the 4965AGN to work in the laptop? Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
