wireless is ok and wired works on different driver. wired uses something like a 10/100 broadcom right? Dell (im using 1) is really bad on drivers. I had to go to broadcom for a 32bit win7 driver. Could also be that wake on device is not checked. Best bet re-install the driver. I hate saying as much as you hate hearing it, but.
Hope this helped somewhat. Im subscribed to this thread so i will get anything posted.
