Have you installed the drivers for the wireless device?

Download them on the computer that has access then use a USB drive or similar to copy them to the computer without access.

Usually you need to load the chipset drivers. Go to your computer manufacturer's website and download the chipset drivers for your system and also look to see if they have other network-related drivers.

Good day!

Hi, welcome to the forums, good advice from the previous posters, when you reinstall an OS it is good practice to check the device manager for any devices that may not have been installed, the chipset driver usually takes care of most, however sometimes you need to hunt down device drivers yourself. Go to start search and type devmgmt.msc click on the returned search and look for any yellow ? marks to indicate a problem. Post back if you are having difficulties.

If you have all the Disks that came with that Computer the Drivers should be on one of them. But there is most likely a updated version of them on the website of the Manufacturer.
