I was deleting programs from my computer and accidentally removed Atheros Communications Inc. AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 Gigabit/Fast Ethernet Driver. My internet connection has stopped working since then. After checking my network connections, I found out 2 of them work with that driver. I have tried to download similar ones but none of them solve my problem, including AR81 Gigabit/Fast Ethernet Driver. Where can I download it? Any other solutions for my prob? Thanks.
