Problem #1

I have an Acer E5-521 laptop that uses the Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter. I wanted to update the driver and I found a link to it - https://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chipset=83&system=7. I deleted the driver, then I installed the new one and now I don't have wifi anymore. I checked network connections and I see that wifi is enabled. Also checking the properties for the adapter says that the device is working properly.

Problem #2

Using sfc /scannow I noticed some corrupt files. Here's the sfcdetails.txt file -> View attachment sfcdetails.txt . And from what I understand I can't use DISM because of the wifi problem.

#1 might be related #2. Open the Admin Command prompt, copy and paste and run these in order:
Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth&sfc /scannow&pause
