Windows 7: No internet access after reinstalling wireless drivers.

No internet access after reinstalling wireless drivers.

After experiencing some problems with stable connectivity, I went into device manager and selected to uninstall the driver for my Qualcomm Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter. After rebooting, I selected the option to automatically update the driver. After all this, I keep getting "Not connected- No connections are available".

1. It's not the router. (The internet is working)
2. Already tried to do system restore. (System restore can't access a certain file and won't let me).
3. Already tried Roll Back Driver.
4. Another weird thing is that when looking at the status of the network connection, it states that the speed is 412.3 Gbps. Despite this speed being ridiculous and it not being connected to anything.
5. Trust me, it's not the router.

Hopefully somebody can help me out!

Please try updating your atheros wireles card drivers from the computer manufacturer's website as device manager is unreliable for finding updated drivers.

I tried doing that much earlier and that rendered the computer unable to boot. I eventually had to use the start-up repair utility to get the computer running again.

Pleas provide us with an ipconfig /all for us to review.

Also please download xirrus wfi-inspector and post a screenshot when you are connected to the network.

I downloaded the utility that you suggested. The computer was still unable to detect any open networks.

Your ipconfig /all shows no ethernet adapter or wireless adapter.

In device manager under network adapters please expand your ethernet adapter and wireless adapter and post screenshot.

As no adapters are showing at all.

Are all hardware drivers installed any question marks or exclamation marks or red x's in device manager?
