Windows 7: ethernet port on Inspiron N7010 doesn't work

ethernet port on Inspiron N7010 doesn't work

I have an Inspiron N7010 laptop. Running Windows 7, 32bit, professional. It came with the home version, but we upgraded to the professional version so we could connect to our company's domain. I was running wireless. Now I have been moved out of wireless range, but I have an ethernet line dropped. The Inspiron does not recognize the ethernet line. It "looks" like it does not have a driver for it, but I am having difficulty finding one.

Thanking all "ya'll" in advance.

I hate to be stupid....but do you know which driver I need to download? Once downloaded, will it "self-install" or will I need to do something "special"?

Tks
