Question about Dell (430-3572) Wireless Adapter
You need to install the drivers for it which it should ask for when it detects a new device. Have you got the cd that goes with it?

Tips for a great answer:
If your computer has a wireless network adapter, Windows will automatically detect wireless networks in range of your computer. You can see a list of wireless networks that Windows has detected in Connect to a Network.
Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon ( or ) in the notification area.
If Windows doesn't detect a network that you think is in range of your computer, it could be because of one of the following reasons:
The wireless switch on your computer is turned off.
Many laptops have a wireless switch on the front or side of the computer. If your computer has a switch, make sure it's turned on. Some computers also use a function key combination to turn the switch on or off. Check the information that came with your computer for details on locating the wireless switch.
Your computer is too far from the wireless router or access point.
Move your computer closer to the router or access point. If the computer is portable, try moving it around to determine the range of the wireless signal and the best place to use the computer.
If you can't get closer to the router or access point, consider buying and installing an external antenna for your wireless network adapter. Many wireless network adapters are set up so that you can attach an external antenna to them, which provides better reception than a built-in antenna. Check the information that came with your wireless network adapter to see if you can install an additional antenna.
The wireless router or access point is turned off or isn't working properly.
There are two things to try:
Make sure the router or access point is turned on and that the wireless signal light is illuminated.
Reset the router or access point by unplugging it, waiting at least 10 seconds, and then plugging it back in.
