Cannot detect wireless network card

Last Modified: 2013-11-09
This is a strange one - i got a laptop from an employee which had XP home edition on it.  I sent it in for imaging to put XP Pro on it and when it came back, the wireless network is no longer showing up under System device manager.   I know it has a card in it because i was using wifi prior to it being imaged.  I checked the BIOS and it says that wireless is enabled.  How can i find out what kind of wireless card is in it so that I can install the drivers/software??
