    I seem to be having a problem with this, added the service which now sees the wireless network and the device (MSI US60G) is enabled however it rejects the correct WPA2 key. "The key or passphrase is incorrect", very odd.

  18. guest says:

    it seems to stop working once you restart the system. I checked and the service was running as normal. restarting it did nothing.
