Windows does not install all your drivers, especially with a laptop.

You have to get your drivers from the manufacturer`s website.

That`s because you haven`t installed the network drivers yet.

I have more than a couple of Dell computers and if not using the Restore discs you don't get everything that came with the computer when you first got it. As suggested you do have to get the drivers, go to support.dell.com and put in the Service Tag number, a label on the bottom of the Notebook or maybe in the battery compartment. You can download on a different computer and as recommended put the files on a USB Thumb drive. If the Notebook has USB 3.0 ports, use one of the USB 2.0 ports as USB 3.0 usually needs drivers installed.
