I'm assuming you checked in Device Manager to see that the adapter isn't disabled for some reason. If not, check there as well.

i recently had to restore my computer to factory settings and now i cannot connect to my wireless home internet. the computer says "this computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured". but it is a laptop and worked before. i downloaded the driver from the gateway website and installed it but still nothing...now i have come to conclusion that the internal wireless networking device/adapter is not being detected, or isnt turned on?
Hello jarbarmartar, welcome to GeeksToGo. Please do the following to determine if your network card is detected by the system and installed properly:
Check Device Manager
- Click Start
- Right-Click My Computer
- Click Properties
- Click the Hardware tab
- Click the Device Manager button
- Expand the Network adapters group
