As the title says. did a  fresh install to get rid of the junk rpeivous owner put on.

 

 

Here are some details:

 

is a samsung no550p7c laptop

 

wireless worked before, was demonstrated it by previous owner

 

laptop doesn't seem to even realize it has wireless capabilities, no wireless icons show up

 

have installed all internet related looking drives from samsung, still no attempt to use wireless by machine

 

have attempted wireless both right next to and far away from router

I'm still learning but I would personally say try installing updated drivers from the manufactuer and if that doesn't help then try using the device manager to find your wifi card and make sure it is working properly. Last thing I would add would be to try to swap out the NIC or get a cheap usb wifi adapter and it should work.

according to minitoolbox, the driver is not installed. come googling tells me that the network card is a "intel® centrino® advanced-n 6235" but i cant download any working drivers for it...

Try http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect/wireless it should auto detect the card if its intel and give you a way to download and install drivers.

Is the reinstalled OS the same as the previous which is usually by the hidden recovery partition?
