Sounds like the drivers aren't installed properly for the adapter.

Reinstall all the drivers and the wireless utility to start.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
  1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
  2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
  3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?



I'd like to see this as well.


Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

You have no wireless network hardware that is recognized by Windows. The fact that the wireless adapter doesn't appear at all, even in error, means it's not being sensed.

Wow sorry that was really foolish on my part okay... attempt # 2 lol...

okay so network adapters are the same but this time there is a yellow mystery next to "other devices" and when i maximise that it shows a mystery sign next to "WPM111" which is my device.
