    Last week the computer described below was hit with the System Fix malware. I managed to get everything back to normal EXCEPT the wireless networking (which was how I was connected to the Internet at the time the System Fix malware hit). Who can help me with this?

    The device manager shows the D-Link AirPlus G Wireless Cardbus Adapter #2 as working properly at PCI bus 3, device 0, function 0, but also shows an unknown network controller at PCI bus 2, device 3, function 0 that I don't believe points to anything real.

    The wireless card cannot see any networks within range, although other devices we use in our house still work well with the wireless network.

    I've searched all over different forums without encountering anyone who has a working solution to this.

    I have tried the HOSTS solution and configuring Services described in http://forums.techguy.org/networking/959895-solved-wireless-not-working-after.html on this forum and that did not change anything.
