And I have found a way to start the driver, but it is very tedious, so please provide a way to stop it from automatically getting disable. The way I found to start the driver is: Deleting this driver "Dell Wireless 1705 802.11b" 2.4GHZ" from device manager under network adapter and restarting the lapto
