    User took firm loaner laptop home; when he turned on the wireless switch to connect to his home wireless network, the laptop just continuously rebooted and would never boot up into Windows (Windows XP sp2). If wireless was off, the laptop booted up just fine. We tested the laptop at work, wireless connectivity works with no rebooting issues. We took the laptop home ourselves to test, and were able to duplicate the problem. Has anyone experienced this issue?

    You probably have a utility associated with your Wireless adapter controlling Wireless connections. Run MsConfig and click on the startup tab. Look for an entry associated with your wireless card and uncheck it. Then follow the steps detailed at:

    Windows does a much better job controlling Wireless configuration than most OEM utilities. You can always reverse the steps if this doesn't work.
