Well, you may or may not have noticed and older thread i started, starting that my pc could connect to skype, but nothing else. Well, i reinstalled windows, and my pc worked fine for a while. then, my wofi adapter stopped working, but worked on EVERY OTHER PC IN THE HOUSE. so i used a rather awkward setup that i had a few years back, where i routed internet by bridging the connection on a laptop to the back ethernet port in my desktop. its worked for aobut a week. then, just today, it stopped working, and i plugged in my wifi adapter. worked like a charm. then i descided that, considering how much i use my usb ports, having my wifi adapter in one of the two front slots didnt make sense. i plugged it into a back port, installed the drivers, and nothing. it shows my wifi network, shows im connected, but no network. i am trying to find the original driver disc for it, as i downloaded it a few minutes ago. may or may not help. if anyone has ever had this problem, i would appreciate advice greatly.
