The problem is that if I try to use the wireless network

adapter, I receive the error "Could not find the network

adapter needed for registration" and the the IPC closes,

with no option to chose another adapter. The IPC works

fine if I use the wired adapter (But I need the wireless

I saw the bug report, but that bug is only a cosmetic issue. It's not about the problem I am having.

Thanks, anyway.
