Yesterday I took the advice of some thread online and updated my Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter which seems to have fixed the wifi problem. But the VPN and broadband is still not connecting. I've tried everything on command prompt including pinging which comes back as trasmit failed general failure and ipconfig commands which return as "no operation can be performed... blah blah... it has its media disconnected".

Please, explain this to me like a 7 year old. Don't use any technical terms and be as condescending as possible. Thank you.

I've seem some advice online that is flat out wrong.

Rarely is it necessary to change a driver. I followed MS's advice years ago and lost my internet connection. Thinking I must have done something wrong, I rolled back the driver, got internet access and downloaded and installed the driver a 2nd time. The result was the same - loss of an internet connection.

Is your laptop Toshiba? If so, you should probably be using one of the Toshiba supplied drivers (depends on your operating system)
