    Hello my friend,

    I am afraid that you cannot install another wireless adapter on your laptop because laptop is very compact in space and there is not any other slot is left where you can install wireless adapter.
    Wireless adapter is installed by default in every laptop.
    if you want to install the adapter again then first of all you have to uninstall your present adapter.

    don't try to install the adapter yourself.
    Visit Dell service center they will get you install the wireless adapter.

    ALL THE BEST.

    Hello,

    As you know nowadays the laptops comes with the integrated wireless adapters.

    If your laptop does not have it than maybe it does not support it.

    But if it does and is not working tan i would suggest you to go to the recovery station of Dell.

    And get it installed there.

    It will surely cost you something but atleast your computer will be safe.

    -regards

    Hi,
    before installing a wireless network adapter, you have to check your system whether it is already installed or not
    and after that you install it.
    So all the steps of that be given on this page link, do it yourself.

    Here is a link :-

    4.Then you click on the option 'Manage' and then 'Device Manager'.

    5.There you open the drivers of the Network Drivers and go to 'Driver' tab.

    one can not install network adapter in laptop because it is a laptop, any laptop will have integrated wireless device. All you need to do is just install those drivers to enable it.

    After installing those drivers you will notice a new network adapter in network connections.
    right click on that adapter and click enable on it.
    it will search for the possible networks available and if you have a password for those networks you can access them.


    hope understand.
    all the best
