Dell Inspiron 1545 Wireless problem Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN #2

This question is not answered

I am working on a friends Dell Laptop. It seems no matter what driver I install

for the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN #2 it still has problems with it. (Lil exclaimation point)

Dell 1545 Inspiron Windows 7 64-bit

Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN #2 --- At least thats what the device manager says.

Wireless is turned on, but it the icon to connect to wireless networks is not in the system try

in the lower right hand corner. I've tried several different drivers. Anyone else have this problem?

I've also tried system restore and that doesn't seem to work. I also tried to restore the laptop to

its original factory settings with the Dell restore disc, but the disk drive gives me this error...

-------------------------------------------------

"D:\ is not accessible

Access denied"

-------------------------------------

The DVD-RW is installed properly and there is power to the drive as well. User is system administrator as well.

HELP PLEASE! Very frustrating problems here. 

Any suggestions?
