wireless problem

hi .. i have some problem in my dell inspiron N5010 laptop(model no :5010-2113)


when i bought it .. there was windows 7 home premium installed in it. it was 64 bit. yesterday i formatted it and installed windows 7 professional 32 bit. now it shows no connection available when i try to connect wi-fi. and when i start troubleshooting, it says network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken. there is no switching button for wireless detection in this model and it was working properly before i formated. How can i fix that problem?

You will probably need to install your wireless card drivers. They should be available from Dell's website.

Other drivers for your computer should be installed as well.

You can't go to Dell's website and download the drivers (which are free) for your laptop?
