Have you tried uninstalling the device driver from Device Manager then reinstall it? A current ethernet driver is advisable.

Thanks for giving it a try. From the computer that you are using and connected to the internet, you may go to Dell Support site and download the driver for your ethernet adapter. Transfer the downloaded file into a USB flash drive then transfer and install the driver into the problem computer.

Please download and install Unknown Device Indentifier, post screen capture of the Devices and we'll help you find the correct ethernet driver for your computer.

or.... Model and Service Tag of your Dell computer is also helpful as maxie said.
