    Question I don't have Wifi after formatting my laptop

    Hello , I formated my laptop without backing out the drivers and after I reinstalled windows(Win 7 32bits Starter) I tried to reinstall the drivers, some of them worked but the ones related to the wifi didn't, and for some reason after the installation finished, it doesn't appear in network adapters, like they don't exist:

    See if their Diagnostics can help figure out the problem. If not, you may wnat to consider using USB-WiFi ... like this one for $5.99 (USD) https://smile.amazon.com/Cable-Matte...tronics&sr=1-3

    Then you may want to consider using USB-WiFi ... like this one for $5.99 (USD) https://smile.amazon.com/Cable-Matte...tronics&sr=1-3

    If not, you might want to consider taking it to someone that can replace the internal WiFi card. (Probably cost more than the device is worth but, it is an option).
