Try disable, then re-enable the driver, if still no luck, try to locate the wireless adapters properties an check to see if all is in order, ch, SSID, everything must match to the wireless signal. (by the way where is the signal coming from ?) your router ? or else where ?

Open control panel -> network and sharing center (Vista/Win 7) and change adapter settings. See if wireless network card is available. If not, get the driver from manufacturers web site and install it.
If the driver is installed, check that WLAN is not disabled by some mechanical button on laptop. Some models have these.

You have to instal the driver for wifi adapter separately from the CD that came with the box, if u dont have the CD, visit the official website of dell and download and install the driver, follow the link;
