Not able to detect any networks after reinstalling windows 7

hey guys, i just formatted and reinstalled windows 7. wireless internet was working perfectly fine before, however after reinstalling windows 7 my bluetooth network adapter is not able to detect any signals. i attempted troubleshooting and it said to connect a ethernet cable. i did notice in device manager in "other devices" theres a device "network controller" that isn't installed. i'm not able to cuz i can't access the internet with that laptop. any suggestions?

Go to the Manufacturer site and download the drivers for your system

(Do this on another computer)

What is the make and model number of the bluetooth adapter?
Make and model number of your computer?

Put this info in your System Specs (User CP / Edit System Specs).

Also, double click on the Unknown device with the yellow mark. Click on the Details page.
In the Property dropdown, select Hardware Ids. There will be one or more that look something like this:

PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_1677&SUBSYS_01751028&REV_01

You can search on that to see what device it actually is. Try using the data including the &subsys_nnnnnnnn. If that doesn't give you any useful results try it without the &subsys.
