That's good Lasater, thanks for reporting back in.

With over 30 thousand hits I'd say this thread has helped many more than we realize.

WINDOWS 7 STARTER EDITION 32-BIT
 
 

Hi guys, I'm also having the same issue with the laptop i'm using. By the way It's Sony Vaio Y series (VPCYB35AG) running Windows 7 32-bit Starter Edition. At first for few minutes(like 2-3mins) i'm able to see the Wireless connection adapter and I can connect to wireless connection. And also in the Network and Connections window, I can see the Manage Wireless Connection button. After a few minutes it would just disappear and I could not connect to wireless connection anymore. I also checked on the device manager and i cannot find the Atheros adapter. It's also noticeable that the Wireless light won't lit up given that the wireless switch in the laptop is ON. I already re-installed the Original wireless lan driver, but still it won't appear in the device manager.

I really appreciate your help on this.
