XPS 8300 - Ethernet controller driver

This question is answered

Hi there,

maybe one of you guys can help me figuring out this problem:

I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 (64bit, Home premium) on my XPS 8300, since I have just put in a SSD and wanted to start from scratch with it. Everything went fine, except for one thing: in device manager the ethernet controller does complain it doesn't have a driver installed... The chipset utility and all the other drivers from Dell for the XPS are installed, though.

My system does not have WLAN, so I'm stuck without network on that machine...

Does anyone have an idea to fix this?
