Not quite sure what you mean. A reboot will fix a lot of problems like that, otherwise I would try a System Restore back to before you had the problem.
You could also try going to Windows Update and seeing if that will get the driver, or go to the Dell site and look for the driver for your model.
If you have the Operating System disk, you could boot from that and choose to REPAIR your computer.
If you have trouble doing any of these, please tell us the model of your computer. (It should be on a sticker on the bottom of the computer).

Good luck.
Plz let us know how you get on.

How did you erase your wireless internet?
I assume you didn't go to the device manager and remove all drivers. That is very difficult to do accidentally.
My next guess is that you uninstalled third-party software for managing your wireless connection. This is an easy fix. Just enable your wireless adapter via windows control panel and then double-click the wireless icon which appears at the bottom right.

Can you tell us what we are trying to deal with. Make, model, laptop or desktop, Vista/XP?

If you can connect the computer to the modem via RJ45 cable then you will have internet access. Restart your computer now and with a bit of luck then Windows will find new hardware and reinstall the driver automatically.

If not, then Go to Start>Control Panel>Device Manager. Look for Network Adapters. Click the little + on the left hand side and see what shows up - you should have 2; one for the cable card and one for wireless. Right click on the wireless one and choose enable.

If things are going well, you can go to Control Panel again and choose Network. Look for options to Connect to a Network. If your router is shown, highlight it and choose Connect.

Fingers crossed, you will now be away laughing again.
