I was working on a machine and cleaning out a bunch of stuff and I deleted the wifi driver.  Now it won't connect or even see see a wifi capability.  I also cannot connect being plugged into the network.  I tried downloading the driver from the manufacture's site and it still does not work after installation.  What can I do to fix my stupid mistake?

System restore may have the driver in it. Go to control panel, Recovery, and recover a restore point from a previous date. You will of course probably have to clean out much of what you already cleaned out, but it should allow you to recover your driver.
