First of all, thanks for reading this post. Recently, I've updated the drivers for my network adapter because I felt that it was a smart thing to do. But it turns out I thought wrong. Ever since that install, I cannot connect to the Internet. I use a Asus P5L-MX Motherboard and the driver I use is Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter but after system restore, something even worse happened. I tried to roll back my drivers but it said the computer couldn't detect my ethernet controller anymore. I tried uninstalling all the drivers and installing them back again but the installation could not continue because no controller was detected. I am totally out of ideas and I am stuck at a dead end. Nobody I know is able to help me including a representative of my ISP. Could it be that an error occurred during installation of the new drivers like disabling my network adapter? If so, how would I enable it back again? I am very good at following instructions so I would be able to listen to whoever aids me easily but I am quite a novice at computer networking. By the way, I am using my older computer right now. The cable of my modem on the internet-less computer is connected to a wireless router with another cable connected back to the computer so that the computer is directly connected to my modem. I really need some help as life without the internet is quite painful. Thanks again to whoever comes to my rescue.
