Windows 7: Network controller driver issue, cannot connect wirelessly

Network controller driver issue, cannot connect wirelessly

After being hit with a Trojan virus, I re-installed Windows 7 Premium 32-bit.

However, I now cannot connect to my wireless network. In device manager, there is a yellow triangle and ! against network controller. I have no idea what network controller I have. Speccy can only identify a Marvell Yukon network adapter but no network controller.

Any idea how I can locate the driver for the controller please? I have tried every trick I could find on different forums, to no avail so far.

Hardware IDs:
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_002B&SUBSYS_E025105B&REV_01
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_002B&SUBSYS_E025105B
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_002B&CC_028000
PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_002B&CC_0280

Many thanks

Welcome to Seven Forums!

Was the Trojan removed or did you just re-install Windows 7 like you mentioned?
To be safe scan your computer with this: Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.65 - FileHippo.com
Update it first then follow its instructions fully, after tell us the results.

Also what model and brand is the Wireless card so we can get the latest drivers for it from a Manufacturer's website. =)

Here's how to identify the needed driver using the information that you posted above:

How To Find Unknown Device Drivers By Their Vendor & Device ID

Basically, you will need the "VEN" number (168C) and the "DEV" number (002B).

Now go to this website and enter that information: PCI Vendor and Device Lists

Here's what I found:

Chip Number:1461103cChip Description:Atheros AR5B95 Notes:Drivers for Atheros AR5B195 and Windows XP http://global-download.acer.com/GDFi...C=ACER&SC=PA_6
