Reinstall the wireless adapter driver, if need download a copy from www.dell.com use the Service Tag number (its printed on a label on the bottom of the laptop) to get the correct model laptop drivers.
Use another computer to get on the Internet.
You could use the Restore function, select a date before you installed SP2, then download the driver before you install the SP2.
Please note, you should be installing SP3 not SP2.

I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop. I recently reformatted it. Now It does not recognize wireless connections. I cant connect to the net Can anyone help?


When you reinstalled Windows, Windows probably did not include a driver for your wireless adapter. A driver tells Windows how to interface with a certain device, such as a wireless adapter. You can easily download the driver online and install it. Once installed, restart the computer and you should again have the ability to connect to wireless networks.
I've gone to the Dell website for you and found the correct driver. Please visit this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&catid=5&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
On that website, I would first try downloading the first driver on the list. If that doesn't enable your wireless after a reboot, try the other ones. After the correct driver is installed, your wireless will be working again.

After the installation of your operating system make sure that the driver of your wireless adapter is also installed. Also you need to check if the wireless switch of your laptop is turned on. If you dont have the driver of your adapter you can download it ath dell support website

Dell latitude 820 wireless driver problem


Try a forced install. Unpack the driver into a folder, then update the driver through the device manager. Make sure you dont have the wrong driver. Most laptops nowadays have a lan driver and an ethernet driver (it may not directly say wireless driver). Use a program called Everest to confirm the wireless devices' chipset.

Have you tried to reinstall the wireless card drivers? Sometimes when the install updates you need to update your hardware drivers to keep things running smoothly.

Internal and wireless NIC missing from device manager


Yes try this, go into device manager, start,control panel, system, hardwar, device manager
and uninstall the card, reboot, it should tell you it found new hardware and if you have the proper software installed, it will say it is installing the software for your device, try this first as it will reinstall it as long as the software is there, or you can at that point install from disk,
