wireless failure after norton update

Hi, Tuesday evening (Swedish time) I was on the net via wireless connection. Immidiately after a Norton update my wireless connection died and my connected speakers did not work. I updated norton again last night, but still same problem. It says "no connection, use machine switch". Now I've read some of the discussion and realise that many out there have problems. Could anyone explain (to a computer idiot) what I should do? Just wait for yet other updates from Northon and hope that resolves the problem / unstall Norton, or..?

Please check these instructions provided by Vineeth and see if that helps.  Let us know the results.

1. Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
2. Do one of the following depending on your operating system:
  - For Windows Vista: Click the Network and Internet icon, and then click Network and Sharing Center. In the left pane, under Tasks, click Manage network connections.
  - For Windows XP: Double-click the Network Connections icon.
3. Right-click the network adapter that is currently active, and then click Properties.
If the User Access Control appears, click Continue.
4. In the Network Connection Properties window, under "This connection uses the following items", click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) or Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
5. Click Properties.
6. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window, on the General tab, check the DNS server settings.
If "Use the following DNS server addresses" radio button is selected, check the server addresses. Make sure that the DNS server addresses displayed are the same that are provided to you by your Internet service provider or your network administrator.
If the DNS server address starts with 85.255.11x.x, then it is more likely that the DNS cache has been poisoned as the result of a Pharming attack
