How to "Enable Intel Mywifi Techonology" in dell Inspiron n5010 laptop?


Hello people,

Recently by mistake i had uninstalled my Network driver as i had some connecting issues on each restart.

But, doing so, now am unable to connect to use wifi at all.

1. When i open "Network and sharing", no wifi networks are listed.

2. Even though i have installed "Intel Mywifi Technology" application with all necessary drivers, by default its in "Disabled" mode, so everything is disabled in the application i cannot modify anything.

Dell Inspiron N5010 || Intel(R) Wifi Link 1000 BGN is my network adapter.

Only 1 network adatper is currently listed, but before i did uninstallation, i use to have 3 Network adapters. i dont understand why am not able to get those 2.

when i tried running the diagnostic tests, i get below error msg

"The wireless adapter is disabled or uninstalled"

Please try to help me.
