Can anyone help with the following problem please?
I am unable to connect to a wireless network.
I have an Acer Aspire 5315 with an Atheros AR5007EG wireless adapter. This shows as "working correctly" in Device Manager. I have tried to re-install drivers for it endlessly. They all seem to install ok but I still have the problem.
The symtoms are....
1) If I try to setup a wireless connection I get "An unexpected error occured". There are no useful looking messages in Event Viewer.
2) If I use "Diagnose and repair" I get "The network adapter is experiencing driver or hardware related issues".
I have uninstalled just about anything that I think might be causing conflicts. I have scanned for malware. I have run chkdsk and sfc. I have all the latest updates from Windows Update. I have tried in Safe Mode with Networking but still get the same results.
OS is Vista Home Basic 32-bit SP2.
I'd be grateful for any advice that might help to resolve this please.
