Windows 7: How do I solve the yellow triangle in the wifi icon (Windows 7)

How do I solve the yellow triangle in the wifi icon (Windows 7)

Hi! A couple of days ago my wifi stopped working and it started showing the yellow triangle in the wifi icon. I've been trying to solve it but nothing seems to work. This is what I've tried so far:

- Turned the router on and off, as well as unplugging it and plugging it back in.
- Disabled and enable the wifi driver
- Uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the newest version, which I downloaded from the Samsung website
- Quit all networks and connected back
- Ran the netsh commands in the command window
- Turned the wifi off and on from the keyboard
- Made sure that the box that finds ip directions automatically is checked
- Unistalled Bonjour
- Checked for malware using MalwareBytes

I don't think the Wifi card is faulty because it does connect to other networks, and I don't think it's the router because other devices connect just fine.

I have a Samsung Notebook Series 3 NP300E4C. My wireless driver is Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter.

If you can help me out with this I would really appreciate it!

Sadly the laptop is in Spanish and can't be changed to English. I can try to translate?

I can't tell if you are running x86 or x64 Windows 7, go here and compare the driver you installed, they don't show one with the -EG at the end... Select Qualcomm Atheros wireless driver

It is x64. In that list it says it is compatible with x64. Is that what you mean?
