Dell no longer finds wireless networks

My girlfriend's Dell laptop no longer finds wireless networks. When I go to try and see the available network connections I only get two options: A 1394 Connection and the Local Area Connection. Neither of which allow the laptop to actually connect wireless to the network. The laptop can get onto the Internet once it's connect via an Cat-5 cable. Other than that, it's a no-go. I've tried myriad things, including disabling the 1394 connection - something I read on some forum. Might you be able to offer some ideas/assistance? Thanks.

Connection drops and no available network

So you are using windows Vista and the wireless connection is dropping.
Do you have any other wireless computer which is working properly ?
If the other wireless is working properly then the problem is with the wireless adapter. Now you have already upgraded the drivers, then there is nothing much we can do.
If you do not have any other wireless laptop working wirelessly, then try to bring another wireless laptop in the network and check whether it works properly.
If you face the same problem on that computer also that means the router might be having problem

Dissable your wired network lan adapter.
