Did you uninstall the drivers and then reboot the compute to have the system reinstall th drivers?

that may do a fix for it.

Done that, didn't work.

Or maybe I reinstall the whole Windows 7? Is there a way that I can customize the Windows 7 installation such that the wireless adapter has no change? And how do I uninstall Windows 7?

You made me laugh when you said uninstall 7.

Hey by all means if you want to redo windows...thats cool with me..but one important factor.

back up all your importat informaion...

Stic the CD in the cd rom drive and boot from your bios for when you want to boot from CD don't start the cd within windows.


and you will want to do a custom install and you will want to format the hard drive.

do not do an upgrade. It will make it worse.

come back on here immediately and don't install anything just yet...
and dont let windows install anything, turn the automtic updates off too. I will show you how to properly fx your computer.

when you do the customer instal you are going to see a button that saids ADVANCE click on that and it will let you format.

It seems to me that the problem is within laptop.
Have we established whether the Atheros card is able to use WPA or not? mine was not able to.

If your machine cannot log onto the router's broadcasted network, you either need to change the security of your wireless network (through the router) or change the machine's security to match the network. This is to say you have a login issue to the network.

Idont kow what else to do . he doesn't wan to touch the routers configuration.... redoing the windows is not going to fix it. Well, it may make his system go faster but won't fix his connection.

Customer is always right...he needs to et into his router and reconifgure it using hardwire.

It he got the WEP/WPA issue, he aint got no other choices. There is no way of getting the Atheros card to use WPA, i tried.

Oh, I reinstall the Windows 7 by inserting in the CD. Then chose the ADVANCED option. Somehow, my laptop hanged and everything is gone, my desktop is completely cleared.

BUT, I managed to get access to internet this time round. Oh man, I really have no idea what happened. But at least I'm glad everything is okay now. And I did backup my stuff. =)

Thanks for all your help. I appreciate it very much. =) Haha! This is funny.
