If it`s not in device manager it`s not installed. We will dig up the drivers for you.

Install the wireless LAN driver called Azurewave

http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrab...rt_Download_30


Once you install that, you should have 2 network connections that show up in device manager, the wired and the wireless.

I like DavidW7ncus idea.
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Remember ebay.
You need to know now that Windows 7 and Office are legal so you have the opportunity of refund if needed.
This is what I would do to verify.

After installing the wireless driver from the Asus Support Downloads webpage for your model, click on the five bar wireless icon in your bottom right System Tray on desktop taskbar (shown below). A list of networks will pop up for you to connect to yours.

If not rightclick the same icon to run Troubleshooter which will tell you what is wrong.

Now read through the steps for getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
so you can enjoy native Win7 performance without the poorly-written Asus bloatware and duplicate utilties which have better versions built into Win7. The factory preinstalled Win7 is one of the worst installs you can have. The link will give you an install better than 95% of them out there.

@ adambfoot

Do you have any symbols inside Device Management ?

To get to Device Management :

Click on the button

Type device manager inside the Search programs and files and press the <ENTER> button when you see Device Manager inside the Start Menu

I think it would be helpful if the OP posted a screen print of Device Manager with the Network adapters expanded.
Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

If there are no "Error / Unknown" devices and the wireless adapter is not listed what does that indicate?
- The device is disabled in BIOS
- The built-in wifi chip does not work (defective)
- ???

Here's an example of a Device Manager screen print

Good point !
He would have to take a pic with a camera, or save the screen print to a flash drive and upload it from another PC.
