Windows 7: No connections are available (Shows a X on the network icon)

No connections are available (Shows a X on the network icon)

I've been researching this for ever and everything I try does not work. My computer tells me to reset my router or/and modem, I do it and still nothing. I have tried everything, even restored my computer and reinstalled all my motherboards drivers. Sometimes it'll show a yellow icon on my network bar and it shows my network name, so I connect to it, then it says unable to connect... I click the troubleshooting and it keeps telling me to reset my router or modem. I tried that several times and even waited 10+ seconds. Still it doesn't work. Someone please help. The only thing that works is my iPhones personal hotspot, which I can't use for long because it is expensive. I tried to disable the networks and enable again, that doesn't work. I restarted my pc that still doesn't work. I don't know what to do please help.
Under network adapters in device manager. It shows Atheros AR9485 wireless network adapter and Intel(R)82579V Gigabit Network Connection. If that helps. Thanks in advance.

Hi, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Try this.

Go to Control Panel, Network and Internet, Network and Sharing Center, then select Connect to a network (Connect or reconnect to a wireless, wired network connection).

You mentioned that you have installed the drivers, try to update the drivers for you network card.
