I did..yesterday,and it couldn't find any driver to install.
But it doesn't hurt to try again today.

That's weird that it wouldn't find the driver since it was installed before.

You could try disabling the internal wifi adapter and use a USB wifi adapter. They're not very expensive and work well.

Sorry for late reply, busy days.

Are you trying with Ethernet cable disconnected? Some wireless adapters get disabled when a cable is sensed.
