    The above will only be true if using an unregistered adapter of some kind - e.g. cellular adapter that looks like wireless. – John Mar 12 at 18:38
  • @John I have an original Dell laptop, Is it possible that the adapter that comes with the laptop is unregistered? – Erel Segal-Halevi Mar 14 at 18:53
  • If the adapter and the machine are all Dell then it should show up. Maybe try the first initial repair for Windows. Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator, and run DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth and then follow this with SFC /SCANNOW Restart when done and test the adapter results. – John Mar 14 at 19:01
