The safest place to get drivers for a laptop is from its manufacturer.

If you supply the exact make and model number of the laptop, that would help us find the drivers.

Go to the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC to download the wireless driver to a stick or CD, install to the laptop. If more than one is shown and you don't know your model, try them all one at a time.

Did you fix this it`s been a over a week. Just plug in the laptop using an ethernet chord and run windows update, how are you on the net now anyway ?

Diana, may I ask, how does 1 accidentally delete a driver ? You would have to go out of your way to do that.
