Dell Inspiron N5110 Wireless cannot connect

I had to reinstall Windows but upon reinstallation, I noticed that wireless does not connect. I tried pressing Fn +F2. Nothing. No LED light for wireless.

First I started the WLAN AutoConfig service under services.msc. After starting/enabling this service - nothing.

I searched the forum and found a post for Quickset. I followed the instructions given and restarted. When I press Fn+F2 the screen flashes the wifi symbol and my wifi LED comes on. However, when I go to connect to a wireless network - none can be found (I have connected to this network before and know that it works).

I searched help and suppoort and navigated to Manage Wireless Networks. I click on the Add button and get the following message:
Windows cannot detect any wireless network interfaces.

Does anyone have a clue on how to fix this? Getting wireless to work after reinstallation should not be this painful.

Thanks in advance.
