Windows 7: wireless adapter not found?

Windows 7
wireless adapter not found?

I had the infinite start up loop before but anyways I took off what I needed to take off and did a clean install of windows 7. After I reinstalled it I couldn't find any networks and I could only connect to the internet via LAN ethernet cord.

When I go to Manage Wireless Networks it says my wireless is not currently enabled. My wi-fi light is on though on my laptop. I have a Toshiba Satellite L450. When I go to adapter settings it says my PCI adapter is working fine. Wondering how I can fix this and connect wirelessly, so I don't have to use the cord to connect to the internet everytime.
I already checked f2 setup when i turn the laptop and the wireless adapter is on.

Sounds like you need to install the drivers for your wireless nic.

There are 10 different Toshiba Satellite Pro L450 models. Which one do you have?

You can find the drivers for it here: Toshiba Support - Homepage
