    Maybe provide a little more info:

    Model of Dell laptop?
    Newer network adapter drivers installed other than default W7 drivers?
    Any (errors) under Device Manager > Network Adapters?
    What does Network and Sharing Center reveal about active networks and/or connections?
    Is your W7 (re)installation media clean/untouched?
