It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

G'day Nuciman....I am a newbie myself....so don't bet the house on what i am saying.
Are you doing a MANUAL restore?....or are you doing a "PC Restore"..or "restore to factory settings", via Dell system??
The reason i ask is because if you are doing a manual install, then i would guess that you don't need to use Dell drivers at all.
DO NOT take this as gospel.....but if in fact you are installing manually...then you can prob download the drivers from Microsoft directly......which may be a whole lot simpler for you......you will find that there are people on here who will give you the download links to do the job simply and easily.
There are plenty of GOOD people on here who are VERY ABLE when it come to giving you the right advice. You can trust them.
I speak from experience.

@ NuclMan. When you visited the Dell site did you enter the service tag or simply go by the model number? If the service tag number is not available then MrBruce1959`s advice should point to the specific drivers needed.
Looking at the page for the Optiplex SX260 I only see two actual drivers under Network. One is a Truemobile 1180 Wireless USB Adapter, the other is a 8254x 1000 Integrated Network.
All others are either listed as a Utility or Firmware.

The machine came with wireless? Is it built-in, pci card? Or is it a plug-in USB?
What exactly happens when you attempt to install the driver? Any error messages?

If you are having issues for any reason getting on line, try a direct LAN connection instead of the wireless connection, this may get you back on line and on to the web site to do this scan.
