Satellite M55-S325, wireless not working (Wi-Fi)

I have had my laptop for 4 years and we bought a new router several months ago and everything was working fine.  I recently had to reformat my harddrive since my laptop was freezing up on me.  I have installed all the software again to the computer and have done all the updates, but for some reason the wi-fi does not want to work.  I have a portable iPod that has wi-fi and it is connecting to the iPod, my husband's computer is connecting to the internet but for some reason mine won't.  When I open Intel PROSet/Wireless and try connecting to our wireless network at home I get a message saying, "Another application is controlling the wireless adapter".  I have checked all the possible solutions I am aware of, but maybe I am missing something?  At the moment I have to have the ethernet cable plugged in in order to use the computer.

 

Any suggestions?

You installed this wifi driver and client?

 

   Intel(R) 802.11a/b/g,b/g Driver V10.5.1.59/V9.0.4.17 & PROSet V10.5.0.1

 

 

Work your way carefully through this Microsoft document. It's the same for SP3.

Be sure to troubleshoot with security turned off.

That was all that it needed was to update the driver and client!  Thank you so much!  I had tried the other document and read through it and according to all the documentation the old driver was working properly but once I updated from the other link you gave me it worked! 


Thank you sooooooooooooo much.

have you tried Synchronising your laptop with the software that came with your router?
