My son "borrowed" my older computer that I use as a backup. It has been working fine. However, he said it wouldn't connect to his network. I had him bring it back, and now it doesn't recognize any wireless in the area, including mine! I have never had this problem. I did a system restore, but nothing happened. I did some searches, and it seems that my problem has something to do with this: NICCONFIGSVC.EXE. However, I cannot find it on my computer, nor can I find it on the Dell support site. Please advise. Thanks

A model would help in finding the correct drivers to reinstall. Usually a chipset drivers reinstall fixes the problem. There has been some malware that used the same file name, but that's been a pretty long time ago.It might be the internet provider server deleted the file which it may have mistaken as malware. They usually don't delete off customer computer's but i have seen it happen.

It also may be the hardware on the motherboard has died and you will need to find a Nic card to put in the computer to get the internet back.
