Am using the last Lenovo released x201 driver for my Intel WIFI card. My x201 has been running fine but am now occasionally getting a blue screen. Error points to NETw5s64.sys which is the Intel drivers. Anyone else get this and how to resolve. I tried upgrading the drivers but Intel says to remove existing one. How does this affect Lenovo Access Connections if I remove the outdated Lenovo released driver?
BTW I am using W7 64 bit.

Is there a unique or special feature of Lenovo Access Connecttions that you need? I find Windows 7's built-in wifi configuration to be good enough for most use cases. I don't think installing newer drivers would affect Access Connections, but if it does, uninstall the Lenovo software.
If you still get random blue screens after that, the wifi card itself may be beginning to fail. Another possible cause is bad RAM-- though it might be less likely than the former, but run a RAM test with memtest86+ anyways.
