Thanks for the follow-up. According to MS, Disk Cleanup "removes temporary
files, empties the Recycle Bin, and removes a variety of system files and
other items that you no longer need." so it probably removed entries tied
to the the old motherboard/NIC and that in turn allowed the drivers to
properly work with the E6500's chipset.

The salesrep did a standard Windows disk cleanup last night and now
everything works fine.

That's a new one on me.

All,

A salesrep laptop (Dell E6400) motherboard had issues so the local PC
shop
found a refurbed Dell E6500 and installed the hard drive into it.

He had numerous wifi networks already set up that are still there. But
he
can't get any of them to actually work. He even reenters the passcode.
Has tried in in many locations. Won't even work with the wifi hotspot in
his phone.

Could it be that since this is a new NIC with a different MAC address,
that he needs to 'forget' each wifi individually and add them back? I'm
guessing not because it worked for me here in the office with our wifi.
But I'm running out of things to try.

Ideas? Thanks.
