Hrm... I've tried everything except for the "Ultimate" reset... I'll do
that right now =) Also, today I just installed an extra ethernet
controller i had lying around and the motherboard/XP detected it! Did
the motherboard somehow "Blacklist" my wireless card (b) or what's the
deal?

thanks in advance!
