    Can't Get Intel Wireless Adapter 4965AG Operational Under Windows 7


      Intel wireless wifi link 4965 does not function under windows 7. I'm running a Lenovo ideapad Y510, Avast antivirus and windows firewall. Unit was running Vista, sprung for a new HD and Win7 home premium and can't get a wireless connection under Windows 7. Troubleshooter says network adapter not connected. Intel adapter failed the association test. I updated all network adapter at the Intel download site and have tried uninstalling and re-installing in normal ansd safe mode. This appears to be quite an issue for some Win 7 users that M$ has failed to address. See this link...,

      This is a HUGE problem for windows 7 users. Why M$ has not addressed this issue is beyond my comprehension.
