Try System Restore, first.
What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

i did do a system restore... any other ideas. :S
You'll need to go to Drivers & Downloads, enter your service tag number and get the drivers under network. Install the Broadcom drivers and the drivers for your wireless card. Also install the Intel ProSet Wireless drivers.
If you did a clean installation of the operating system, then the procedure to follow is below.
The Desktop/Notebook Utility needs to be installed first, then the chipset drivers. If they are NOT installed first, then the rest of the drivers will fail to install.

Since the operating system was re-installed did you remember to go to drivers and downloads, enter your service tag(DO NOT POST SERVICE TAG here or your post will get deleted, since it contains your personal information), and install these drivers in this order.
Hint When downloading the drivers, make a folder for each drivers and name it with the device it belongs with to make it easier to install them in the proper order.
