I have recently installed windows 7 ultimate and I can not connect my laptop with wifi! It is saying that I have problem with network adapter or access points. I have tried disabling network adapters and updating them. NOTHING HAPPENED!

What does the Troubleshooter say from the steps I gave above?

Is the wireless button turned on? Every laptop has one. Sometimes is is an F key. Look in your Manual on the PC's SUpport Downloads webpage. While there download and install the latest wireless LAN driver.

Plug in by wire, enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3), see if the Ethernet driver is installed and connect to network, or Download it from PC Downloads webpage and install. Once connected, check for Updates and install all Important and Optional as there may be another wireless driver Win7 prefers and/or patches to make it work correctly. Keep checking back for more Updates until no more are offered.

If you're talking about the driver in the old folder.. it's not there! Either the folder is not there or the driver! Okay. So, I'll try doing what you just said about the updates now. And thank you!
