I have been having issues with my Intel Centrino 1030 wireless driver for quite some time. Several months ago my computer began to have problems with connecting to the internet following a windows update. I would fix this by system restoring, then 2 updates later (which is usually 2 times of being shut off) it would break and I would restore again. This continued for several months until now. The computer shut off and then there were no system restore points to which I could restore that would fix the problem. I attempted to uninstall and check for changes in the device manager, which did nothing. I have aa windows 7 64 bit with no internet connection. I have another computer with internet access, burnable CDs and USB flashdrives at my disposal if necessary
Any help is appreciated!

It may be possible that Windows is updating your drivers automatically and for some reason the compatibilty is breaking the network connection.

 

If this does not work or it was disabled let me know. I have something else you can try.

I tried that method, and while it probably could have prevented this happening it didn't fix the already screwed up driver

Go to the device manager right click on the wireless driver select properties and on the driver tab see if the rollback button is available to you. If not do a system restore and diable the automatic driver updates before you connect to the internet. 

 

Good Luck

Update: I fixed the problem 

I went into my installed updates, and uninstalled each of them (all 250, took 3+ hours) and proceeded to delete and download a new network driver.
