You can automatically get drivers from windows update:


You can check Windows Update at any time to see if it found new drivers and icons for your hardware, especially if you recently installed a new device. If you want to have Windows Update automatically check for the latest drivers and icons, here's how:
  1. Open Devices and Printers by clicking the Start button , and then, on the Start menu, clicking Devices and Printers.
  2. Right-click the name of your computer, and then click Device installation settings.
  3. Click Yes, do this automatically (recommended), and then click Save changes. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    If Yes is already selected, click Cancel to close the dialog box.
If you let Windows automatically download drivers and information about your devices, your hardware is more likely to work properly.

This is the broadcom driver right from Dell's website for your computer if you prefer the manual method:
