Default Deleted wireless adapter

I've just done a factory reset of windows 7 home premium and it's not allowing me to detect any wifi networks. I've looked in my devices and there are no network adapters or drivers!!! What do I do?

If you bought the PC from a store, then find the manufacturer and model of the PC, and visit the manufacturer website to download/install the drivers.

If somebody built the PC for you, find out the manufacturer/model of the network device (normally written on it) and download/install the drivers from the manufacturer website.

Wait! Hold up! What brand name is the computer? What model number?

If you down load the realtek chip drivers it may not work in the configuration the computer maker has it.

You should be able to find the model of the computer on the bottom of the laptop assuming that its a laptop?

The Realtek ones *may* work. They certainly did for my TP Link adapter.
