    If you look on this page at the first post by Paul_Tikkanen, it looks as if those drivers may work. Download and install them.

    Is it an internal or external adapter?

    If the driver installs it will probably work.

    Do you mean that the driver installed OK; the wireless adapter looks OK in Device Manager; but you cannot detect any wireless networks with it?


    If it is external it is probably connected by USB. Look carefully all around the laptop. If you see anything "hanging outside" it see if you can identify the accessory. If you cannot find the adapter that way then it must be internal.
