Wirless adapter Gateway NV59c laptop

Hello,
Recently my friend has been having issues with his computer, so I reinstalled windows fresh for him. I installed all the other drivers but for some reason windows cannot find the wireless adapter drivers anywhere, on the driver cd, online no where. I went into the device manager to see if I could find the name of the adapter but it will just give a warning and call it "Network Controller" Im not software savvy and have no clue what to do from here, please help
