You don't have any way to connect to the internet. You need some kind of hardware either wired or wireless. If Windows can't fin the right driver then you need to provide it with a CD that came with the hardware. Another way is to get a USB wireless or wired network adapter that you do have the drivers for.
Using another computer, go to Dell's web site and download the correct drivers. Burn them to a CD or put them on a pen drive and install them.

The fact that the internet works with Ubuntu tells you that the NIC works. All you need to do is get the Windows 7 driver. The driver to get is the last one on your list. Broadcom Integrated controller. Once you get that from Dell Windows will be able to have the correct drivers and it will work. You can also get the diagnostic utilities but those alone will not fix the problem. You need the driver. Install that first.

it's worked...................thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you
