Windows 7: want to know what data is necessary to connect to wifi

want to know what data is necessary to connect to wifi

This topic aims to get the specifics of what actual data is necessary to communicate with and log-on to a wireless access point given that all network devices are working.

The reason I need this information is because I got a rather nasty computer virus that after removing it left me without the ability to log-on to wifi networks. it always says 'limited access', not 'limited connectivity' watch those 2 very carefully.

I have a pretty good idea that something may be wrong in the windows 7 networking drivers (not the hardware drivers), but it may be something in the registry as well which is why I need to know how to 'build' a wireless connection from the ground up.

for example what are the base software and registry requirements?

what should the registry pertaining to networking of a clean machine look like?

what exactly happens during the entirety of establishing a connection to a wireless network? from the smallest data lookups to handling the login handshake/or the equivalent.

what is a nethook and how can I remove it?
