i loaded software on my dell vostro 1500. when i did, my wireless internet connection went down, and, in addition, i note that the computer's device manager no longer lists the wireless adapter. one question do i re-initiate my wireless internet connection without going through the device manager? thank you.

Check in the BIOS to make sure the wifi adapter is not disabled, and also check for a hardware off switch for wifi.

If all that looks good, get the driver for the wifi card from Dell and run the setup for it.

May not be a bad idea to remove that software you loaded if that is what caused the issue.
