My laptop cannot connect to my network all of a sudden except in safe mode. When it boots, it will show the networks available in the tray popup, but if I click connect on any, it says "Unable to connect" and the troubleshooter is useless. Shortly thereafter all the networks disappear.
I have tried removing IPv6 support as I have seen that cause problems. No joy. I've also tried removing the wireless network adapter in Device Manager and reinstalling it, also no joy. I've also tried attaching a USB wireless adapter, and it has the same problem.
If I boot in safe mode, then it has no problems at all.
Three other devices in the house connect fine, so I am pretty sure it is nothing to do with the router.
Any ideas what to check next?
I am running Win7 Ultimate on a 2GHz Quadcore with 8GB RAM with a Broadcom 802.11n wireless card.
EDIT: RE wired connections: What is very weird is that if i plug in a wired connection, then not only does it connect via the wired connection, but the wireless also starts working perfectly. And a soon as I unplug the wire, then the wireless stops working again! So it seems the wireless is right now working only in safe-mode, or when a wired connection is also plugged in.
