    I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 With Windows XP home, with wireless issues.

    I just re-formatted and installed all the needed drivers from Dell, and the wireless card was not recognized. So I looked in bios, and it said there wasn't one. So i bought a replacement, and now bios notices it. But Windows still doesn't. I looked in Device Manager, and it notices a "Network Adapter" and it has a question mark over it. It also says the Ethernet Adapter isn't responding.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?
