    Hello, so I bought a new PC and received it today. I did buy it off Ebay, so it was already built, it was quite expensive as well. Everything seems to work otherwise, but the WIFI does not. When I do trouble shooting, it comes up with "Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter." The issue is, when I go to the device manager, it doesn't show my network adapter.. only things such as, "WAN Miniport" and so on.

    I've tried pretty much everything, is there a solution to this, or did I buy a faulty product?

    Are there any "unknown" devices (with an error)? If so, one may be a network adapter.

    Desktop or laptop? Have you looked for the physical existence of a network adapter?
