My Dell computer won't detect my wireless card



Issue


After doing a system reset on my computer, the wireless option has been turned off. The wireless card is not under Network adapters anymore. I honestly don't know what to do. It's a Dell Latitude D520. The wireless card is a Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN mini card.

Additional Info:

Network Adapters
~1394 Net Adapter
No devices under Network Adapters have a red x.
  • I've tried resetting the TCI/IP, and the winsock.

Solution


You need to install all the drivers. The yellow exclamation mark indicates that drivers are not installed properly. You can download the drivers from the manufacture's website.

OR
  • Select the option "Choose from a list of all Dell products" --> Click on "Continue" --> Click on "Laptops" *Choose your laptop model.
  • Now download all the drivers and install them.


Note: Some devices may not function properly if the drivers are installed outdated. For more information click on the below link.

  • So install the "Chipset" drivers first.
