My other half turned off computer while it was downloading 10 updates, long story short, black screen. Live microsoft helped me get it up and running again, downloads all eventuall successfully installed, little did I know, the wireless connection to the net was knocked out. This laptop is a Vista dinosaur, but has always worked like a champ until yeterdays hiccup.Up to date and hardly ever used -AVG virus scan clean. The wireless network adapter says working, up to date drivers etc. I called ISP- not a signal propblem etc ( did winsock restet ) - it's not paid AVG problem per them either. I have written CMD codes, been through every tutorial that I can decipher. The ethernet works, but wireless says "cannot find any addl neteworks. Some prompts saying again "netwok adapter" then something about not running "microsoft wireless service" which the Dino Vista I have cant get ? ( download center doesnt offer service to DinoPuters ? ) Microsoft help closed so I thought somebody would have victorious a sugestion. Thanks. Atheros AR50026EXS wireless adapter disabled/enabled many times did not fix.
