Well I resolved it by bypassing the wireless adapter and buying a nano external wireless usb thing, it works perfectly now. problem still not fixed however.
I found a way to fix my Network, ive manually uninstalled the Network cards Drivers and downloaded the following file "win78-10.0.0.75-whql" from
http://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chipset=81&system=6
and simply installed the driver via the Device Manager

Hope this will help some of you.
