Update: I seem to have fixed the problem, although I'm not entirely sure how or why...
I tried re-running the driver installer, and while it was doing its thing I tried establishing a connection to my wireless LAN. At that point - and I don't know whether this is coincidental or not - the installer started to install the LAN drivers.
I checked device manager to be sure, and that is now displaying the LAN device correctly.
