    Today had to to conduct a bit of a messy reinstall of windows (changed cpu fan and windows wouldn't start properly so had to format and reinstall) and now my wireless adapter won't connect to my network. I should say I can actually connect to the internet through my TP-link wireless network card attached to my motherboard, however, last week I purchased a TP-Link TL-WN722N usb adapter because the signal was too weak on the network card. Before the reinstall it worked perfectly, giving me 4/5 bars of signal strength consistently with no drops. I've tried reinstalling and repairing the drivers but it has had no effect. I still suspect it is some weird driver conflict for some reason as I was having conflict issues with programs earlier in the day although they were all eventually resolved.

    Network Card : Atheros Communications AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCIe) (says atheros but really tp-link)
