    Hi, I have a asus M2N32 deluxe sli 590 board, and ocassionally, say one
    third of the time, my computer cant detect it, the wifi program loads but
    says it's been diabled! I turn on and off a few times and wiggle my antenna
    socket and it works again (after a while).

    Any ideas??

    By comparing a picture of the M2N32 on Anandtech, with a picture
    of M2N32 on Newegg.com, it looks like the WiFi is a vertical module,
    with a 2x5 USB header as its interface. I'd examine the module
    carefully, for dry solder joints. Also, look at how the thing is
    mechanically secured. Wiggling the SMA connector for the antenna
    should not be doing anything, if the module has been properly
    supported mechanically. I don't see what is holding it in place,
    with the pictures I've found so far. I hope it is not just
    a friction fit between the 2x5 header and socket.
