Getting in line behind the rest and adding that I would carefully examine
the properties of the nics that work and compare them to the properties of
the nics that don't work. Remove all services on the nics that don't work
that are not on the ones that work. In fact make good notes and remove all
the services, run the Fix It wizard from here
then reinstall the Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Print Sharing
and nothing else. I have seem some really strange stuff applied to the nic
settings, and once removed the systems worked fine.
Be certain there is only one wired nic active when you join the network,
and be certain that that is working before activating and switching to wireless,
if in fact you switch at all.
Please post the resolution to your
issue so others may benefit
