Sorry if i cover old stuff you have already tried but............
well you could try removing the card completely, then reinstalling it, physically i mean.
A short term would be open a dos window, run the ipconfig/all command and see what your primary dns server is, that should be the direct ip address to your router, something like 192 .168.2.1,
you can then try an ipconfig/release followed by and ipconfig/renew
If you hit an error at any point, your card is pretty much fucked, as you have stated you have the most up to date drivers. Assuming you have a standard LAN card in the pc as most mainboards do, then try to connect via cable, see how that goes.I only sabotage people I think are worthwhile

Fubes's suggestions sound good. If they don't bring you any joy, see if the supplier has a telephone or online chat support service. I had probs with my Cisco adapter a few months ago and they were very helpful. Talked me through fiddling with a whole bunch of parameters I'd never even heard of, and kept at it until the problem was fixed.

Well, that didn't work. Running the ipconfig just told me that there was no media connected. I found amongst various bits and bobs another adaptor (Belkin) but that wouldn't connect either, so now I'm wondering if it's the actual pc that's got the problem?
I've given up for now and moved the pc into the room that has the router in and connected with a cable. That works with no problem but isn't ideal given my home set-up, it will do until I can get someone in who knows what they are doing to have a fiddle...

Can you connect to the router wirelessly using another device to check whether it's the router's problem or your PC's problem?"Alright, they're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us...they can't get away this time."

Try the adaptor on another computer to see if it is working ok ?

Have you tried taking the PC back to a time before the update ( restore point),
failing that an ethernet cable and run it between the router and PC.
We had the same problem with the old PC, the brother-in-law fixed it using the restore point................had to save photos etc to disc before hand.
