My wireless isn't working after I uninstalled broadcom from my Gateway laptop. I did a system restore and it started working. Then I updated my Microsoft Office suite and the wireless stopped working. I tired to configure the wireless to let windows configure it, I don't know how. I looked in my device manager and there is a question mark next to other devices and also the sub category called modem device on high definition audio bus. Please help.

Open up the Device Manager and run a scan for hardware changes. Check the Network Adapters branch of the hardware tree in the Device Manager. You want to verify if there is a Network Adapter present, specifically, a wireless network adapter.

If there is no device present, you will need to reinstall the device drivers for your WLAN (wireless) card.

Gateway was recently bought out by Acer computer, so you may want to consult both manufacturer's websites if you do not have your drivers and utilities installation CD-ROM.
Bill Gates recognizes the skills... so i suggest you start there and recognize them too...
