Wifi card not reconized in device manager

I reformatted my computer and installed windows xp. I went to dell's website and downloaded all the drivers. I then checked device manager to make sure there were no yellow question marks or x's and there werent any. I then went to network adapters and I only see 1394 adapter and broadcom 440x 10/100 intergraded controller. I noticed a lot of threads saying go to device manager click network adapters and uninstall wifi card driver... The problem is the wifi card is not there. I have bought a new wifi card to see if it will reconize that one but it still wont. I have tried everything but cant find a solution. my computer acutally is a e1405 pc notebook. Please please help this is driving me crazy.

Afer i reformat my lenevo 3000 g430 i can't connect anymore to a wifi connection


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
Have you already installed the drivers for your computer? If not yet, it could be the reason why you are not able to use your wifi. Follow these steps so that you could know what to do next:
1)check the device manager in Windows: A)if you are using Windows 7 or Vista: -click on Start, then on the searchbox, kindly search for Device Manager and open it. You should have something like this: mondimondz_1.png
B)if you are using Windows XP: click on start>run>type devmgmt.msc and it will open the device manager Window.
2)If you will find a category that says Other Devices, kindly look for a item that says "Network Controller" if you find it, it means that the Wifi adapter on the comptuer is not yet installed. All you need to do is insert the drivers disc CD if one came with the computer when you bought it. If not, you could try connecting the laptop to the modem directly using a cable and download the driver from Lenovo's support website: www.support.lenovo.com

3)If you still cannot connect with a direct connection, the Ethernet adapter could have been not yet installed also. You could also check it on the Device Manager window and look for Ethernet Controller under Other Devices. or check the category Network Adapters and see if the Ethernet Adapter is installed.
4)if the drivers are already installed, you can try contacting your Internet Provider or call Lenovo's Technical Support Team.
hope this would be a big help!

Cant get any drivers to work on my dell after i reformatted the drive and re installed windows xp. I have a dell inspiron E1505 and the only driver I could get to work from dells website is the nVidia...


There are several different drivers listed for each category under your laptop model and Windows XP:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

You will not be able to install all of these drivers. You need to pinpoint which items your laptop came with. To do so, you may be able to look at your manual or order history and determine what exactly went into your computer.

In order to configure TCP/IP,you must install and enable a network adapter card, Windows 7, Vostro Dell A840


Not much to go on with your question. Windows 7 does not see your network adapter(s). Did you just upgrade? If so, you might need to go back to Dell website and download the Win7 drivers for you laptop. On that laptop you should see 3 network interfaces for WiFi, Ethernet, and the modem, and possibly a 4th for bluetooth. Dell is pretty good with downloads - just type in your service code at their support site, and they will only show you what you might need for your computer.

You mean you need the ethernet drivers or windows does't reconize the hardware?

If it is the drivers you can download here:

Ethernet not working after format and xp reinstall


Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage, then go to the Device Manager in the list on the left and find the Network Adapter from the list on the right, right-click Network Adapter and select Uninstall. When you reboot, XP should find the Adapter and reinstall it automatically. Another reboot may be required.

If it still will not connect, go to the NIC Manufacturer's website and download the driver to removable media. The Driver Update option can be accessed in the Device Manager, but this time select Properties when you right-click the Network Adapter, and go to the Driver tab.
