Connect to a wireless network or plug a network cable into it.

"limited or nor connectivity" normally indicates that you are on a network with a valid network address, but cannot connect to the Internet.

 

So, is there another wireless device that can get to the Internet?

 

If you can see and connect to the wireless your machine should be okay and you need to look at the wireless part of the problem.

You have far more issues than it's not connecting to the net. I'd go to the dell support site and get the drivers to take care of those issues first. Start with your USB issues and then go from there. Somewhere there is a sticker labeled Service Tag #. If you enter than into the Dell site it will show all the drivers.
