    Hey,
    I re-installed windows 7 on my laptop and now it won't detect my wireless network card (I use Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230). If I used devmgmt it won't turn up under network adapters. I tried installing the drivers, but it's not working since they can't find a network card that supports them. I've also tried reinstalling the chipset, but to no avail. In devmgmt I can find under other units something that is called networkscontroller, but it has a a yellow warning triangle with a ! inside it.

    How can I get my wifi to work again? please help me

    The device labeled "networkscontroller" could be the card. Use the update driver under the device properties and point it to the drivers. You could also uninstall the device, reboot, and then install the drivers.

    Did this laptop originally come with win7? Exactly how did you reinstall ie did you install from the recovery partition, install from a retail ms disk, oem disk, how?
