So, I happened to do CD recovery a day ago; *Due to forgetting Administrator password* and now my laptop seems to not be able to pick up any wireless connections when there usually is a ton. Also every time my laptop restarts it always loads saying "Preparing for first time use" Like I used the CD recovery again. which I didn't. I thought that maybe it has to do with the Drivers and such, though im not very tech fancy, so I wouldn't exactly know where to find the correct driver to install, and which to install.
Here is my laptop's Information:

Oh and lastly, I happened to notice on Driver manager, that on "other devices" there is a yellow exclamation point, on both of them: Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 and Network Controller

If you were wondering, my Network adapters is: Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)

Thank you~

You can get the drivers here ASUS - Notebooks- ASUS U56E
start with the chipset then audio,video,lan,wifi then any others you do not need any driver programs they can offer drivers that are unsuitable for your system,download the drivers to either a usb stick or burn to a disc and transfer to your computer
