Windows 7: In China, Uninstalled iNode VPN, corrupted Miniport Drivers, Code 31

In China, Uninstalled iNode VPN, corrupted Miniport Drivers, Code 31

Hello 7Forums!

I come to you, desperate and browbeaten after many days of searching, in an attempt to resolve my apparent driver mess-up. I'll elaborate, but to start: I cannot access the internet from the computer in question neither on Wireless nor Wired connections, and am writing this from a separate tablet. I can, however, move files generated by my computer to the tablet to post here, download and move over necessary programs, and take photos of my screen. I'm not entirely sure what would be helpful, so I'm starting by posting the context and the DXDiag log.

I am on an Asus G51vx, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with SP1 and most of the latest updates (old now given the lack of internet access).

The full story:

The problem started after I conducted a Revo Uninstaller Pro uninstall (by nature very comprehensive, deleting presumably all files edited by the installation) of connection middleman software iNode, installed with the help of staff here. It helped me access the subscription-based wall jack internet over proxy, but once the subscription ran out I uninstalled it and apparently the drivers, too, with Revo. All the drivers in the screenshot are displaying Code 31, "The device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device." Nevertheless, my wireless network is still able to detect and connect to wireless networks and even shows high sent/received activity, but remains unusable. Chrome is unable to load any pages, Steam autofails with Error Code 10107, Skype remains unable to connect. All very confusing. My wired connection is showing error 651, with no additional details besides that the device is reporting an error. It is not a modem problem as i have tested it successfuly with another computer.

I have completed a full virus scan with Microsoft Security Essentials and a full malware scan with Malwarebytes, with no infections. I've tried reinstalling some drivers to no effect (although I admittedly had little idea as to what I was doing, and could have it wrong), using dskchk, sfc /scannow, and a few other cmd commands, and event tried some registry tweaks (with backup!) with no luck. I do not have my original Win7 cd handily available nor do I have the original G51vx driver CD. They're both incidentally on the exact other side of the world or so.

So, please, where do I go from here?

Adding to this post my Malwarebytes scan for further info.

What I want to emphasize is that I am detecting wireless networks on my computer, can even connect to them successfully, but cannot access any form of internet. I can guess it may be the result of improper proxy data removal? Still at a loss.

Also, booted into Safe Mode with Networking, and did not see the WAN Miniport devices in Device Manager at all.
