Cant see my wireless device under Device Mangaer

Hello all,

I recenlty got my DELL Inspiron 1545 formatted,after which i am not able to use my wireless network.I have installed all the drivers provided in the CD's by DELL.But somehow not able to bring up the wireless adapter up.How do i check if the hardware by itself has problems or perhaps i have not got the driver installed at all !

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

According to your specs you are using Windows Vista 32-bit and not Windows 7.

The details you have posted are for your wired ethernet adapter, not your wireless adapter.

Device Manager indicates you don't have a driver for your wireless network - hence the yellow question mark.

You need to download the correct driver from Dell Support, save it, and then install it.
