Windows 7: Printer killed wifi?

Printer killed wifi?

today I was installing the full version of the software for my printer (HP J6480) so I could edit the text in my scanned document the original driver was the one that Windows 7 automatically downloads and uses and while it was installing the software I looked down at the task bar I noticed that the wifi had a "!" in it ( it worked 2 minutes before that) and since then I've not had Internet
I have tried restoring it 2 days back no success , reinstalling wifi card ,and the built in network troubleshooter with no success
My specs are
Dell inspirion 537s 2gb ram 2.93 intel core 2 duo
Win 7 home 64 bit
Wifi card is a d-link WDA-1320

Thanks in advance for your help

Could you check if after installing your software there has been a proxy change in the internet settings of your IE? Also try re-installing your network card drivers.

Does the WIFI card show up OK in device manager with no yellow ! or red X's? What does the network and sharing center say as far as network access and INTERNET go? Have you tried using system restore to go back before you installed the printer software?

If this is a wireless connection delete your current connection from the list of preferred networks and set it up again. I would also reboot the router. If its a wired connection try swapping cables.
