This afternoon I lost internet on my laptop ............................. which is bad.
I can connect on my other devices though ............................. which is good.
I need my laptop for work, so it's very important I/we fix this.
It's an Acer Aspire 6390-Z with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit as the operating system.
It can find no wi-fi networks at all and the wi-fi button on the laptop now refuses to illuminate too!
Nothing I did seemed to sort the issue out.
I then popped into Device Manager where I found that my Atheros AR5B91 Wireless Network Adapter has a yellow triangle with a '!' inside.It also says;
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
I did a system restore and all seemed well for about 30 minutes but it's all gone bad again, even after another system restore!
Finally, when I reboot the laptop, I now get a message that says;
wirelesscm.exe - Unable To Locate Component
This application has failed to start because RtlIhvOid.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem
I really don't have any idea what all this means.
Please help if you can.
Many thanks in advance,
