Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling or just use the Windows Wireless management. Reinstalling the card and driver also?

To uninstall it you don't have to go and view your Network Connections. Right click on My Computer, click Properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click Device Manager. It'll be under Network Adapters.

Either go to dell.com and download the drivers and software, or use the Drivers & Utilities CD that came with the computer to reinstall the devices.

If that doesn't work then the card went bad and you'll need to replace it. Call Dell, tell them it stopped working and what you've tried and that nothing has worked. If it's still under warranty then you can get it replaced. If not purchase a PCMCIA wireless card for $50 from newegg.
