Product Support | Dell US - (vendor ID show it is Realtek). However that one seems outdated.

Realtek
The second one in list (Win7 and Server 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program (SID:1726062)) should work.

It's coming up with error

The network controller was not found. If deep sleep is enabled, please plug the cable.

I tried both. Error on both. Chipset was installed automatically. There's no errors in device manner except this Ethernet driver.

Chipset first definitely.

The NIC is same in those two, so should work.

Try the Dell one as Oscer told, if Realtek drivers won't work.
