This may belong in many different sub sections but I think this is the best forum for this particular problem. 


I have a Acer Aspire One running a Windows 7 (32 bit) OS. Just recently my internet connection was severed (wireless). So I tried to figure out what was wrong. I troubleshooted the problem and found that my wireless network card was showing a Code 10 error. Apparently, google shows that it is a generic code error and can be anything from a driver error to faulty hardware. I was hoping you guys can help me remedy this problem.


Device Manager shows my network card as the following - (Broadcom 802.11 Multiband Newtork Adapter and driver version Windows says is the most up-to date version on their servers).


I'm sending this using an Ethernet cord. By the way, when I go to  Network Connections via the Control Panel, I only see an option for Local Area Connection. My wireless connection doesn't even show up.


Hope someone can help. Let me know what else you guys need.
