If you can redownload the drivers, you may want to try manually uninstalling the wireless driver and then either wait and see if Windows will install it automatically or you download it and install it yourself. If the problem persists, it is probably a faulty card. You can send it back to the OEM, or buy a generic card yourself from Hong Kong for pennies on ebay.

Also might be better to bypass Dell and go direct to Intel for the latest driver for the wifi card.
