Re-Installed Windows 7, Now Drivers missing?

I have a laptop Dell Studio 1558 and after re installing windows 7, my internet is not working.

I re-installed Windows 7 and now the following drivers are 'missing' and have yellow exclamation points in the Device Manager:

Base System Device
Base System Device
Network Controller
Unknown device
Does anyone know where I can find the driver downloads for these?

The Hardware Id's are here:

Download the drivers you need from the dell.com using your service tag, if you don't have them on a disk.

Windows 7 and 8 rarely have those drivers. Head to Dell as noted by Kees.

-> Are you asking how we've come this far and are still accepting the need to go driver hunting?

I want to add that on most Dells you need a few help apps such as Dell's QuickSet and many times Intel's RST.
