>>> The internet connection is not working either >>> on Local Area connection or through wireless network connection.
What is the "Local Area Connection" connected to? If a router, is another computer connected to it getting internet access and, if so, what IP address does (a) the other computer and (b) the Dell Laptop get from the router?
With the WiFi, have you scanned for Available Wireless Networks, selected the one whose SSID matches that of your wireless network and selected the option to "Connect" to it? You should be prompted for any WEP/WPA encryption key and should then connect and have internet access.
