On the educause wireless listserv, I saw a lot of responses say it was a
driver issue with the wireless card.  I saw it mostly with the Broadcom
chipset, so you might try upgrading the drivers.

We recently started deploying IronPoint 200 APs from Foundry Networks.
These are excellent access points and have been working great, for the
most part. We now have had two confirmed reports of users who's laptops
will BSoD when they attempt to connect to our APs. They can use the
exact same laptops across the street at their hotel.

I forget the first laptop it was reported on, but the second one is an
Asus M6000 (M6b00R 24H) with an Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG controller.
Has anyone else had problems like this?
