Dell Latitude D505 is not detecting wireless network

dear all,

I have got a problem with my dell latitude D505 laptop's network, I have got a wireless Broadband Router that supports both wired and wireless connections.

The problem is its not detecting network controller adapter, I have installed all the drivers and Network controller driver was not available in ? sign in device manager so i was unable to install it, my internet is working properly on Ethernet cable.

last time when I Installed Win Xp there were clear icon to update driver so there were not any problem with me.... this time its not showing any Driver update Icon .

I have done many tries, but unable to got it fixed ......

Is there any way to show network adapter, please help..........

Make and model of your wireless router and the type of security you're using? What channel?


What virus program and firewall are you using?


Did you recently install the operating system?


Can you run an ipconfig /all log and post it back here.





What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
