I am thinking of Upgrading my old Dell Vostro 200 from XP to W8.1 using a clean install on a new SSD. The only significant issue that the Microsoft Windows Upgrade Assistant shows up is that for my Intel(R) PRO Network Connections 8256V-2 10/100 I need to "go to the Intel website". I have searched there without finding anything relevant (except for one about "8256*" that might have been, but led to a broken link).
I am a database application developer so know little about these internal things, and I presume this is about Ethernet connectivity. Do you have any comments about whether this issue is significant, whether I can get a suitable driver for it, or etc.
