    The LAN and Wifi drivers are different sets. Did you get both of them?

    Is the Wifi card installed properly in device manager?

    Did you check if there is a switch to enable/disable the wifi card? Most laptops have some kind of switch or key combination to disable wifi on the fly.

    If there's no dedicated switch, there is usually a key combo like FN+F10 or something.

    There should be an icon on the Function Key that looks like a radio tower with radio waves on both sides of the top.

    Are you SURE there isn't a switch?
