Wireless adapter crash

Atheros AR5007 b/g WiFi Adapter

Ive had this problem before but it was crashing due to my antivirus which I have since gotten rid of.

It doesnt detect any networks or connection.

if you go to network and sharing center and clik on change adapter settings, do you see the wireless? If so try clik on it then disable and then enable.
