    just reformatted, cant get wifi to work

      Hey, i just reinstalled my gateway laptop (P6831FX) with vista 32 bit which is what the laptop came with, but now my wifi doesn't work

       

      i have an Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN, and i updated all the drivers, and i can't seem to troubleshoot the problem.

       

      manual diagnostics says that my wireless adapter is uninstalled or disabled, but i have updated its drivers and the device manager says that it is ready to use. honestly, i have no idea how to fix this or whats wrong, but if someone can help me that would be great.

       

      some things to note are:

      Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN came with the laptop

      vista 32-bit came with the laptop

      all i did was reinstall vista

      drivers are up-to-date

      im not finding any wireless connections

      my wireless should be enabled, there are buttons that turn it on or off, but i have it on, so that cant be the problem

      it failed hardware test

       

      not too sure what else to mention, but ill answer any questions if it helps
