Question about Dell 1450 (D1450U) Wireless Adapter
When it says 'Conntected: 100Mbps" on the bottom, all it's saying is that you have a physical connection between your computer and the device it's talking to.
Now one thing you need to double check is that (I assume you have a wireless router) the router or whatever device you have connecting to your ISP modem has the correct network information. For example some ISPs will give you a static IP address that you have to manually add to your router. If TalkTalk does that, and Sky doesn't, make sure your router is automatically obtaining an IP address. This should connect you to your ISP and to the internet. Then your DELL machine should get an IP address from your router and then you should be good to go.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
