Windows 7: Cannot detect wireless signal, dropped moments after if is detected

In the process of updating my drivers yesterday I....accidentally deleted the driver for my ethernet connection. I had to do another system restore to get it back. And when I did, the wifi worked. I restored to the last section of my hard restore, the first restore(that I mentioned in my first post) did not have the same effect which is confusing.

I went and downloaded the driver's, bios, and firmware you mentioned after the restore, and the connection seemed to grow more firm. However, if I overtaxed the connection it would still drop for a few moments. At this point it was pretty late and I just went to sleep. When I woke up, it's back to exactly like it was in my first post.

I don't understand how this is happening lol.

<update> This is the point my Wireless connection is at now. I'm able to connect occasionally. But I a not "allowed" so to speak to stress the connection at all beyond basic browsing. Here is where my ipconfig goes from one moment to the next, from when I connect to after I stress it.
