    Thanks for the reply,.It is, but the problem started when I was playing around with the software called "Connectify".

    I remember it as Intel Centrino N-2230(Correct me if I'm wrong). I tried a fresh install of the latest driver for the card but a small wireless symbol appears for around 10 secs and then disappears, I mean nothing happens thereafter.

    Actually I was upgrading the software Connectify from v8 to v9 and then the problem started. And now even if I uninstall it I can't see my wifi card in device manager
