Try going to start , right click on my computer, go to properties , then click on device manager. Once there right click on the adapter and uninstall it.

Restart your computer then go to your pc manufacturer's website (or motherboard's site) and find the driver for the controller, install it.
Restart your computer again and hopefully it works.
