Hey, I've had this old dell around the house for a while now. I have an awesome DS desktop right now, but I still have the laptop around when i seriously need to go mobile. Problem is, it deleted its own LAN. Yeah, you read that right, I can't see LAN on network connections now. Wireless and Wired are both non-existent. I'm still able to connect via wireless using the wireless app that came with the system, interestingly. Anyways, I cannot connect with ethernet. The ethernet lights still blink to notify of a working connection, but the computer doesn't seem to know that. I have internal NIC enabled via the BIOS, also.

This all just abruptly happened one day.

Any suggestions to bring my LAN back?

ShockedDoes it happen when wireless? Or do you have hardwire connection to modem/ desktop?
    Is it happening at home or everywhere? Have you checked your router? NOTHING lasts forever.
    I'm about to set up a LAN on my three computers(laptop1, laptop2, desktop) and will watch this thread with GREAT interest. If you figure it out, please post.

I think you have lost the drivers for the ethernet. Try re-downloading the drivers for your laptop from the dell website. That should fix the issue
