Hey,

I upgraded my laptop yesterday with a new ssd and after a clean windows 7 install it can't detect the wlan adapter.
What I have already done:
- Reinstalled 3 different versions of atheros wlan drivers
- Reinstalled windows 7 again...
- screwed my laptop back open to check if there was a network card in the area... (nope)

Please help me,

thanks in advance.

Ps. I have n56v laptop and an atheros wlan adapter

I have, sadly they didn't work for me. It gives an error message at the installation that I have to put in my network adapter. I have considered that it might be an hardware error. But I didn't touch it while installing the ssd. So I doubt thats the issue. I did use a normal w7 edition that didn't came with the laptop. But its also home premium x64.

I would also first, install the "Chipset" driver from the link that I provided.

Another basic thing, are you sure that you have the wireless switch turned-on on the laptop?
