You'll need to access Dell's Drivers and Downloads page from another computer that has internet access, and supply the Service Tag (or other method of choice) information to obtain a list of drivers for your GX260. Assuming you're using the original LAN card, you'll have to download and install the required driver to restore network functionality from the Dell site (if other than a GX260 LAN card, you'll have to go to the LAN card manufacturer's site for drivers).
There may be more than one LAN driver from which to choose. If unsure which version you have - you'll need to get all of them and install them one at a time until you find the one needed by your machine.

Are you talking about wireless card in a notebook. Please clarify. If your answer is "yes" Check the wireless ON switch on your notebook. It could be in off position by mistake or to save power. (for some manufacturers to activate wireless card you need to use combination of keys (e.g. Fn+key with wireless sign)
Then check device manager
Go to start-control panel ->system->hardware and device manager.
Click on cross to expand network adapters. Wireless should be visible there. From there just right click on the wireless adapter and select "uninstall" option.
Restart your notebook (or desktop) to have thie driver reinstalled AUTOMATICALLY.
Please let me know if problem persists.
Right click my computer - properties.
click on the hardware tab.
click device manager.
(here you will see all your hardware devices, click on network adapters and you will see your wireless card)
go into it's properties.
you will se an option to role back the drivers to what was previously there.
confirm this and wait and see!!
Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)
Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.
i would suggest to uninstall and reinstall the drivers of your network
adapter, or it would be best if you install the latest drivers for it.
no need to format the HD.
if you feel that formating is needed, it would also work but that takes a lot of work.
