Internet Unavailable After Windows Reinstall (w/Network Drivers)
So I had a lot of trouble with my laptop (Hackintoshed when I really shouldn't have, installed Pear Linux, didn't like it, deleted the Mac OS partition and somehow broke my boot loader) and since I wanted Windows 64bit, I figured a reinstall worked better.
Anyway, afterwards, I used my PC and nabbed all my 64-bit network drivers from here, and after installing and rebooting, my network adapter seems to not be working. The network/wifi icon has a red x in it and it says 'Not Connected' and 'No Connections are available' - which is untrue. My tablet and iPhone connect fine. I ran the troubleshooter, nothing worked.
My system specs are here, screenshot of the laptop's device manager attached.
ETA; I did not do the BIOS update that's listed with the drivers - wasn't sure if I needed to.
