Hi @all,

after the secound time of starting "iStat wireless"-Gadget in Vista Ultimate no Data (IP; WLAN Strength) is displayed. Same Problem at my Desktop PC also Vista Ultimate (german). I know a other Gadget wich shows the WLAN-Stat which has exactly the same problem.

Greetings :) Cirnoc

Microsoft do have a fix for this issue, its just not a generally available hotfix, you need to contact them for it. I just did and it works fine - islayers gadgets now work fine.

MS KB Article 932030


Windows Vista incorrectly detects the miniport edge of PassThru as a WLAN adapter when you use the PassThru Intermediate Driver from the Windows Driver Kit

Norton Support

Wireless Network option is not available in the Windows Vista Mobility Center after installing Norton Internet Security 2008
