Internet connection not working

So, after installing F-Secure my computer has been unable to find an internet connection.  First I figured the problem was in the firewall settings, but there was no connection even after I switched off the firewall. My bag of tricks is empty and I'm getting really frustrated. What to do?

    How do you connect to internet. Dialup, LAN, USB modem ?

    Whats the operating system?

     

    Go to Control panel-> Windows firewall. then try to restore default. See if this works.

     

    try to ping www.google.com in CMD. See if that happens or not.

     

    Scan whole C: drive with f-secure.

    LAN, Win8

     

    So I tried all of those, still nothing.  Now I've also noticed that after installation the Windows troubleshooting has found a problem with the following drivers: Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG wireless network adapter and Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet. The troubleshooting wasn't able to fix it.

     

    I also tried deleting F-Secure, but the laptop still refused to connect to the internet.  I got it to work by system restore.

    Now I've installed F-Secure again, but the same problem still exists.
