Windows 7: Unable to detect WiFi networks after reinstalling Windows 7

VistaKing -- below is my the message I just typed in follow up to my #17. As I am about to send it, I see your #18 and #19, and will check them out now (still thinking I might have goofed somehow on the driver installation?).
...............

When I try to extract (WLAN) after download, I get a message: Please insert the last disk of the Multi-Volume set and click OK to continue. I don't know what is being referred to.

However, this is the same driver that I downloaded from the Samsung site and installed (well, think I installed) yesterday.

I cannot explain why it extracted ok yesterday and not from the download link you provided.

However, I ran the Install Application file and got the message "This program might not have installed correctly"

I ran the Install (Application) file from the Driver folder. Turns out there are subfolders (9.2.0.500 and 10.0.0.54) with Install (Application) files too. I presumed the Install from the Driver file would automatically deal with subfolder applications that needed to run.

So I'm left thinking I might have the correct driver, but might not have installed it correctly.

Sure, I'll put it into Wordpad then on a flash drive and try to copy-and-paste it into this box.

In the meantime, we've added a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller that torchwood referenced but nothing referencing a Wireless LAN.

family controller

Hi lotstolearn,
not sure if thats the right family controller, but if it works yeah
according to samsungs website your running an Atheros configuration make sure you download that make and the 64bit version
www samsung > product no > support > drivers > W7 64bit.

< sigh >

(of frustration with myself, of course)

I downloaded the file (again) but when I try to extract it I get:

"Compressed (zipped) Folders
Please insert the last disk of the Multi-Volume set and click OK to continue."

Suffice to say, I don't know what disk is being referenced here.
