I have a dell Insperion 9400 laptop which uses the Intel PROSet/Wireless software for connecting to wireless networks. It has recently started giving me the error message "Problem applying profile" when I try to connect to a network. Sometimes when I reboot the computer the problem goes away until I change networks. I've tried deleting all the wireless profiles and re-adding them (home and work), but this doesn't seem to solve the problem. I've also tried upgrading to the latest version ( that's available from the Dell support site.

Any ideas?

Tried disabling DEP (Data Execution Prevention) which was a suggestion I found via Google, no joy however. – Alister Dec 2 '09 at 0:13

I eventually gave up on the Intel PROSet/Wireless and uninstalled it and am just using the standard wireless stuff in XP - which seems to work just fine.

Thanks for coming back and updating. I'm surprised no one suggested this, though. I almost never use the OEM wireless profiles/EZconnect/etc. – hyperslug Dec 17 '09 at 0:32
