I have a corrupt or faulty Network Adapter in Windows 7. Device Manager - Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter#2

I have tried to up date it , but Windows only says, you have the latest driver installed. Can I safely uninstall it, and reinstall without any danger to my PC

I assume you are using Windows 7 in which case Reinstall Network Adapter

I have followed the " Reinstall Network Adapter " instructions you sent but when the Reinstall downloads it is the same as before with a small yellow triangle.

Question - On the 2nd to last step " Confirm Device Uninstall " do I have to tick the box " Delete the driver software for the device " as well as the OK button, or just the OK button which is what I have done

Yes delete the driver as well. Reboot and Windows should find the correct driver and install it.

Sorry to be a nuance , but do you mean by this tick the box ( " delete the driver software for the device") and then OK Just so there is no misunderstanding . Then Reboot.

It seems I am not getting any further replies from you ?

If Windows still can't find / install the driver it would suggest the network card has failed.

I don't find this very funny, As you see I by the previous Questions and Answers in this thread I have been very careful about what I did, and I have followed all your instructions to the letter only after confirming each step with you. Now it seems the software for my Network Controller is missing after following your advice :-
