    Sorry that I was unable to help. I have found one more tip though.

    Start - Run - msinfo32 - Check conflicts/problem devices it might help to find the cause of the problem.
    Under Conflicts, you can see, which memory/I/O is shared with your wifi, that should be the culprit.

    Is NVIDIA nForce sharing resources with my wireless card?

    This is device manager in resource view. It appears that NVIDIA nForce PCI system management is conflicting here. Is it safe to disable it?

    It is needed, because it manages PCI devices. Depending on your BIOS capabilities, either allocate wifi card to IRQ21 or disable some devices like LAN adapter and other devices, you are not using, like card reader or DVD-ROM. It might free some resources. It is strange problem anyway, to be unable to use all devices.
