Windows 7: Wireless Card not being detected

22 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Wireless Card not being detected

I have an ASUS PCE-N13 Wireless PCI-Express Adapter. This is my second wireless network card and I do not believe they were both defective. My device manager does not detect that card and I installed the driver on the CD that came with the network card. Anything I can do? Only a wired connection with an X mark shows on my task bar.
