I suggest you to check if the network cable is connected properly to the LAN port and install the latest drivers for it. You can download the latest drivers from the following link by punching in the Service Tag and by clicking on "Drivers & Downloads" tab:
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)"

If this has the original Windows 7 on it then its probably Malware and or Physical Damage done by installing another NIC.
Chipset Drivers must be installed BEFORE NIC Drivers. 32 Bit vs 64 Bit also matters.
What is the exact description of the hardware that has this code 28 on it in Device Manager? What are the names of the driver files you downloaded and attempted to install on this Inspiron 570?
