Question about Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (WM3945AGMW1WB)
My laptop, a Dell inspiron E1505, was recently infected with a trojan virus that rendered in inoperative. After reformatting the hard drive to overcome this problem and reinstalling the OS and all drivers, I am unable to connect to the internet. Reason being that the system is not recognizing my wireless network adapter. My laptop info. indicates that Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 802.11a/g mini card was installed. However, after reformatting the hard drive, this adapter is not being recognized. It is showing that an alternative network adapter is installed and is recognized - a Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller Rev. A17. I seem to remember using the Intel PRO/Wireless driver before reformatting the hard drive but, which do I use? Either? How do I get one or the other to work?
go here and follow the steps to get the drivers and software to install.
dont know what o.s. you are running, but go into device manager, if you haven't already, to see if the apropriate drivers are installed and are enabled. let me know.
