This IS probably the case, when upgrading to Vista removes ALOT of old settings that you may have had. The first thing that you should do is find the latest drivers for your wireless network card that is Vista compatible. Once you have the latest card drivers for Vista everything may be fine, or you may have to create a new connection. But let me know...
I think Vista wiped out my wireless network card.
There is no need to uninstall Vista yet, I have posted a fix for your problem above.
Can I uninstall Windows Vista and bring my lap top back to factory settings?
Like everything in life, there is good and bad aspects to everything. From my personal opinion of Vista, I think its GREAT!!! I also had a few issues with it, all because of compatibility. Many of my drivers wouldn't work because they where all old and suited for XP, but now that I have got that soughted out Vista is running perfect.
I wish I never installed this upgrade.
Let me know if my fix worked, cool.

Dell Wireless 1450 WLAN miniPCI Card:
Dell Precision WorkStation M60
Microsoft Windows 2000
Microsoft Windows XP
It seems that all drivers for anything to do with network are only compatible for Windows XP/2000, nothing seems to be out for Vista at the moment. I went through most of them because I wasn't sure which driver you needed, here is a direct link to your model:
Inspiron 5150 Drivers & Downloads
Can you tell me exactly what they told you to do? So that we can fix your Internet Explorer problem, as for the other problem with your wireless network card you will just have to hang back for awhile until drivers have been made compatible for Vista. I will keep you updated on the new driver release and will try and gather more information from Dell to resolve your problem.
After hours chatting with Dell nothing is resolved . I have same problem with no wireless network card and now I can't get on Internet Explorer. I can get on AOL, but no Internet Explorer.

I will install Vista again. I seem to have lost everything I had before. I am trying to get it back to factory but I am having a problem getting the Symantec Recovery to come up. They say push ctrl and F11 but it is not working. There is a folder Windows.OLD. Do you know how to bring that back? I double click on it but how to I download it in computer? I am in a real mess over it. lol. My lap top is all messed up. Thank you for finding out that information for me. I think I am going to have to bring this lap top in to a shop or something. I have no idea really what I am doing and I am just making a mess of everything. I am just so thankful for people like you who are so willing to help newbies like me. Thank you so much.
