    I have an IBM Thinkpad 390X and had the MN-520 wireless card
    working perfectly for years. I had been keeping up to date with the
    automatic microsoft broadband networking updates, but when I installed the
    most recent critical update last week I immediately started having problems.
    First, programs that try to access the card directly, such as netstumbler,
    would quit immediately when opened. Now, my computer spontaneously
    gets blue screens of death with the error STOP ...IRQ ERROR NOT LESS THAN
    OR EQUAL, and then it reboots itself. This happens several times an hour by
    itself and is expedited by opening a browser window or using the network at
    all. I'm running windows 2000 and when I remove the card, the laptop works
    flawlessly. There is no way to automatically remove the latest update, so I
    tried unsinstalling MSBN entirely, and reinstalling the oldest drivers from the
    CD, but I'm STILL having the same problems. I can't believe the latest
    automatic update would cripple my system--very frustrating. Can anyone
