Help! Limited connectivity because of wireless network adapter

Hey,
Last night I uninstalled ad-aware and then I lost my internet connection. It keeps on saying: "limited access". I found a driver with a yellow exclamation mark in network adapters and I accidentally uninstalled it and made everthing worse-_- I don't even remember its name and when I scan for hardware changes, it doesn't appear.
Btw, there isn't any restore points on my laptop.
