Windows 7: New install... cannot connect to Internet...wifi or lan

New install... cannot connect to Internet...wifi or lan

I just dumped Windows 8 and installed a newly purchased copy of Windows 7. The devices show only Bluetooth and nothing else.
I highly suspect the software is missing the required drivers.
I load Linux Ubuntu live disk and have no problems at all. In fact, that's what I am using now.
Any help here would be appreciated.

@vistaking... Thank you for the reply. I did find the following information which, I suppose, tells the story.
Problem devices:
Ethernet controller - device not installed
Network controller - device not installed
PCI Simple controller - device not installed

I am going to run the cp over to my computer guy tomorrow and let them handle it.

Your reply led me to discover the above, so again, thanks

There's a list of Inspiron models here where you shoul dbe able to just download your missing drivers and install them yourself.
