Hello, and Welcome

 

Firstly, is Windows 7 32bit or 64bit?

 

Right click the wireless adapter in Device Manager, Select Properties and under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Copy and post the first line.

This is interesting. I went to the ASUS support page. Your Vendor and Device ID reflect an Atheros chipset but there are no Atheros drivers listed under the wireless category for you PC.

 

Go here and download the Atheros Driver. Top of the page

 

Version: 10.0.0.297   2014-07-22

 

Click the green Download button. It will be a bit before the download begins. Unzip the zipped file to a folder on your desktop. In it there will be 6 files. Delete the following files that have a X suffix. These are the 64bit drivers.

 

netathrx.inf

athrx.sys

athrextx.cat

 

Open Device Manager. Right click your Wireless Adapter. Select Update Driver.  Do not select Automatically search for drivers. Select Browse my Computer for driver software. Then open the folder with the three files. It should find the inf file you have there. Click okay.

 

Here is a guide on updating the driver in Device Manager if you have not done it before.
