Device manager on my laptop can't detect my wireless adapter

So I reinstalled Windows on my laptop last night using the Samsung recovery disc that came with it because I recently had problems getting it to start. But now that I did that the device manager on the computer can't detect either my wireless or ethernet adapters.

I don't know how to fix this problem and I really hope someone here can help

Ok, what type of Samsung is it? I need the model # or something to go off of. The most likely problem is that you simply need drivers. If you know the model I can help you find the correct drivers.
