Vista SP2 stops recognition of wireless card

On installing SP2, after the reboot my wireless network adaptor is no longer recognised.
In Network Diagnostics etc the network card cannot be found, let alone fixed! However, in Device Manager it is apparently working fine.
Further reboots didn't fix.
The only solution was to use System Restore to get rid of SP2. Instantly on reboot all was happy :-)
I guess I can live happily without SP2 for the moment, but wondered if anyone else has had a similar problem, or has a solution?
Dell Inspiron 1525, running Avast antivirus, with Intel PRO 3945/ABG wireless card.

Can't see the bios being anything to do with it.
Is it worth uninstalling the device completely in device manager and rebooting and letting windows pick it up again as new hardware ?
