Hi Jason,

Thanks for the reply.

Yep, I have seen and tried this...

Didnt't try the hit and miss solutions in this thread as I didn't want 
to make the problem worse as the card is working and you can scan 
networks.  It just won't connect to any.

This is THE script that got it to work as it is now.  I couldn't find 
the link to this after I shut the pc down but I remebered how to run the 
script and so could the card up and running again if I needed to.

I appreciate all the help given so thanks again.  The option to buy a 
usb card is not an option though.  I would like the wireless on the 
(expensive to me) laptop to work so will keep trying.
