    Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 1 with windows 7 starter. The Model is AO532H. The Netbook was awesome but Recently it was lagging up and not working and then just stopped altogether. I figured I had malicious software or a virus. So I backed my files up and restored it to factory settings which had the wireless working again. However it started lagging again and died. Restored to factory settings again and totally doesn't work whatsoever. My wireless network adapter is an Atheros AR5b95.

    I have, reset to factory settings. Updated bios. Uninstalled and reinstalled the device, and tried to update the driver. It tells me the best driver is already installed/or it failed to install because the device is unable to start.

    I am at my wits end here. Is my Adapter like loose or fired or something? Is there a fix through the registry? Anything?

    Did you try to install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site? If so, what happened? If not, please do so.
