Default Wireless Adapter Keeps Shutting Off

I just had my machine re-imaged this week, and since having that done, I can't get wireless internet. Every time I start it up, the default is that the adapter is switched off. So, each time, I must turn it on manually by going to View Wireless Networks --> Change Advanced Settings --> Configure Advanced --> Wireless On and then press Fn + F5. This system, though a bit annoying, was working fine when I was at home the past two days. Now when I go through the process, my wireless LED lights up and then flickers off after about 5 seconds and I cannot connect.

Do I have to update the drivers somehow? When I click on Update, it asks me to insert a CD, which I do not have.

If it makes a difference, I'm operating a ThinkPad T43 with XP Professional.

Any ideas?
