Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron N5110, Intel core 3 processor, and Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit os. I have recently reinstalled windows 7 from the windows 8 os. I can't access my wireless internet, I can only get to the internet via hard wire. I have searched Dell and Intel for the network controller driver and the sm bus controller driver, but to no avail. I have tried everything and can't figure this thing out. Please help me locating a fix for this issue.

you first have to install the intel chipset drivers for windows to get some of the drivers working.

there more then one wifi card that ame with these untis there a blue tooth and 3 or four n cards.
try running intel driver update on intel webpage and see if it can tell you the make and model of your wifi card. if not can download the drivers one at a time till you find the right drivers for your hardware.

Are you sure wireless is enabled on the router also? Check by going to the router, looking for it's ip address, username and password and browsing the sections to see if wireless is enabled.
