Hi

Is it showing up as an unknown device and might just need the drivers installed?  Do you have any unknown items in the device manager?

Get back with info.

OK ..
We're talking about the wired network adapter here, right?  Do you have a wireless adapter installed?  From what you 've said so far, it sounds like the wired adapter is having a problem.  Is your PC under a service contract with Dell?  The wired network adapter is attached right to the motherboard.  If it is bad and you don't have a replacement plan in place, it would probably be easier to get a USB to Ethernet device to use in it's place.  Have to been able to get into the BIOS and check if there is a setting?  I'm assuming if it was working and you didn't disable it in BIOS, it should be enabled.

Get back with that info and we'll go from there.
