did that last night,along another 6 drivers from dell,still no internet,boo hoo poor me,wonder why no internet.

Have a look here, I've downloaded one driver as a test and scanned. No malware. I usually do this when getting drivers other than from the manufacturers site. There are choices for ethernet and wlan.

First one you should have installed is this one. Chipset.

Download SIW and under network adapter see what your ethernet controller is.

I did not expect you to get the internet with that one, but the chipset is always the first drivers that you install.

Try this one Driver.
