The wi-fi adapter was acting funny so I decided to reinstall the driver. I unistalled it, cheked for new hardware and it came back up.
But still windows says "We couldn't find wireless devices on this PC". I tried reinstalling again, I checked for updates online, restarting every time. After that I even found my laptop's old drivers and installed them manually but still nothing helps. The windows update did not help, windows recovey is impossible.
Once again, the adapter itself works fine since it's discovered by the device manager and also functions on Ubuntu on the same machine. So I guess it's software-related.
I have no idea what's up.
I'm using Windows 10
the adapter is Atheros AR9002WB-1NG Wireless Network Adapter
if that's any help
