Problems with Dell Inspiron N5110 in connecting to the internet. [Help]

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 and recently I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on it. After my first installation I haven't been able to connect to the internet the wifi connections don't show up and neither does the lan work. As far as I know it's a problem regarding the drivers as when I troubleshooted from the Network and Sharing Center , it showed me a problem with the drivers and even in device manager when I open up the network area there all of the hardware and/or devices have an exclamation mark in front of them. Please help me out ASAP and please give me the exact link to the driver as I could not find it on dell's website. Actually it's my work laptop and I need to get it fixed before Monday. Thank You.


UPDATE AFTER SOLUTION- If you have the same laptop like me download the particular drivers-
Link (WIFI)
And for ethernet-
Link (Ethernet/Lan)

    Here's a link to your driver downloads.

    Your Ethernet driver download can be found here.
    Your WiFi driver download is going to depend on which WiFi card you have installed.

    Thank You so much , I'll try the links in a few minutes and you said " Your WiFi driver download is going to depend on which WiFi card you have installed." none actually it is the way it was and if you want to know the exact model no. you may know by the specs-
    Core i5 2400m (not sure but it's i5 (2nd Gen))
    GT 525m Graphics card
    And probably 4 GB Ram
    also there was one problem I was facing and that was when I switch on my Wifi on it the light stays on for about 15 secs and then goes off again but the wifi is still on as when I switch it off the watermark shows wifi off.
  3. When I said. "WiFi Card", I meant whatever factory installed WiFi device.

    How do I know which one is factory installed? Device manger?
    Thanks you're the best person ever :P
  5. Yes. Your specific device should be listed in Device Manager. If not, then just download all eight and see which one works for you.
