|As stated before I have ALREADY DOWNLOADED THE LATEST DRIVERS! Why doesn't anyone listen?|
Neither the title or either of your first two posts specify that you downloaded the latest drivers so you'll have to excuse us for not knowing that without being told. Yes, yes, I see now you mentioned it in response #5 but since you were pointing that at someone else, I didn't read it through very carefully.
My next troubleshooting step would have been for you to download the second oldest driver and try it in light of the fact that the wirelesss worked on the original install, but not on the new drive with the latest driver. I've run into that issue before and I suspect the latest driver itself may be FUBAR'd or it's incompatible with your version of Windows.

Thanks, but no thanks.
I find the image's I do for backup that I keep stored on my NAS save me from having to install from scratch. In a matter of minutes, I can be up and running at my last backup point. Usually a 2 day maximum difference.
Also, if were to reinstall from scratch, I wouldn't want any OS and/or driver files from the old install carried over to the new. That would defeat the purpose of a "clean" reinstall.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
