Mandriva and windows can't connect to the same wifi network.

I have a laptop that I have recently installed Windows on it. for over 6 months I thought that there is no wireless network in my room, but I found that windows can connect to the network without any problems, while Mandriva can not.

I did not move the laptop and the network is not secure and I am using the default Mandriva Network Center.

What is this problem and how can I solve it?

Does Mandriva even detect your WiFi hardware?
