Need 64-bit driver for my integrated NIC.

Upgraded my DELL from 32-bit Vista to 64-bit Vista.  DELL doesn't support 64-bit yet.

DELL identifies it as "Intel 825xx 10/100 Platform LAN Connect Device".

Device id from device manger reads: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10C0&SUBSYS_020D1028&REV_02

Intel has an identification page:

http://support.intel.com/support/network/sb/cs-012904.htm

I do not see entries for Vendor 8086 and DevID 10C0.  Dell no doubt has an EOM DevID.

Can anyone point me to the correct driver to install for my device?

Thanks

To follow up. DELL says they will have 64-bit drivers on their website in a month.

Intel says it is an OEM device and I must get the driver from DELL.

My nephew who works at Intel has fired off an email to the driver team... That's probably the most promising avenue. :)

The first link worked perfectly.  Even from Dell's own website.  Too bad Dell themselves were not able to point the way.  Thanks!
