device manager screen looks fine. Did you install the drivers using all my links, or did win7 install them automatically? Did you install both applications (launch manager and turbo boost applications)?

Post screenshot of "network centre"->change adapter settings

You have: broadcom 802.11n network adpater. That's the wireless adapter driver.
broadcom virtual wireless adapter. don't know exactly what it is, but is also a wireless thing. It's called "virtual".

Both are working fine according to "device management"

"network centre"->change adapter settings -> double click on "wireless network connection".
Or right click on it and enable it (if disabled).
and right click on it and make connection.

Tell me what happens. All looks fine so far.
