    I apologize for any spelling and any other mistakes about my english, I am terrible at it.

    So, yesterday I was sitting with my laptop in kitchen, playing and all. Then I decided it's time for bed and wanted to go to my bedroom with my laptop still on ( i do that all the time ) but when getting up I somehow tripped and my laptop slipped from y hands and fallen down on the ground. I somehow managed to balance the fall of it and it landed perfectly on the ground without even shutting down.

    I continued to my bedroom and finished with my game, was turning it of and suddenly a huge lag spike appeared and laptop reseted, not restarted but reseted. I was to tired to see it load up again and just forced shut down by holding the power key. After couple minutes I realized that I should have waited for that and turned it on. Instead of loading properly I got to chose either load windows normally or run start up recovery. I chose the recovery. It started and went on for some time, I fall asleep but not for long I woke up just as it loaded the windows. It was not good, desktop resolution was reseted to no driver state, all application shortcuts from desktop were gone ( recycle bin to ). I was to tired so I picked up at morning. It was not good. My laptop was very slow, I could turn nothing on, and when I tried it just froze, had to force shut down. I assumed that I corrupted windows and took my windows dvd and rewrote the windows, formated both parts of my hard drive. I wrote all drivers and everything. It was all going smooth, thou I noticed minor slow-downs, but do not appear to happen anymore.

    So now I get to the problem. My WiFi is really messing around. For about an hour it was all good. I started downloading my game, for some time it was all good speed was at max but then in went to nothing, and game client says the connection is lost. But I can access any site. No lag no connection problems. But I can't download game. It is not clients problem I tested it on other game client and it's same thing, it downloads good for about a minute and then speed drops to 0, I tried waiting for some time, but no miracles there.

    Technical information:
    OS: Windows x64 Professional SP1.
    Network adapter: Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter
    I do have Intel, Broadcom wireless drivers installed also, but the Atheros is the one running the show.
    I am currently running Trial version of windows, but I have never seen something like that.

    I already tried putting laptop on wire it is the same, I cannot download games or turn torrents. I am able to download drivers from sites. But thats all. I have 10 years old PC and I can download what ever I want on it.

    I didn't tried rewriting windows again, I did overwrote drivers few times now. I have checked many solutions, nothing works. Everything seems to be in order router works well, all IP's appear to be good, my wifi is the only one in the channel. I am just out of ideas what the hell I am suppose to do.

    I know this is a lot of reading and it's not very well written.

    Adding additional info.
