You shouldn't need an additional wireless adapter if there is one built in. May be that the inbuilt device doesn't have drivers installed?

The one in my Dell detected the network as soon as I turned the pc on.

Im sure there is a button to switch the wireless on, however you need to have the drivers installed for the 'soft' buttons to work. I had this problem a couple of years ago with a mates advent machine I couldnt source the drivers for the buttons
