Hi AniketS

Ask Dell for correct drivers for your operating system and hardware

(should be easy to find on their web site using the PC serial number)

If the correct driver does not work the wireless card may be disabled by hardware or software or bios switch or is broken

is your wifi card turned on, there should be a switch on the side of your laptop that turns wifi on and off or one of the the function key. When its turned off the software won't see you have the wifi card hence won't install.
