Just the adapter.
I believe I have figured out my problem, the recent windows update caused my drivers to go defunct for some reason for the wireless adapter. Fully updated drivers dont help. Hopefully they have a fix for it soon, until then, I guess I get to have windows updates off. Restored back to the point before the windows update and everything is Hunky-Dory.
So help me god, Ive had more problems from windows updates than I have had from system-crippling viruses in the 15 years ive used computers.
