Dell does not have drivers for Windows 8.x for this system.  That doesn't mean it won't work, just that you have to look for a driver yourself for any device that needs a driver.

What is the model of your wireless card?  Go to Device Manager (right-click [My] Computer, Manage), right-click wireless, Properties, Details tab, change dropdown to Hardware Ids, and post the VEN and DEV ID's here ... or the description from your original order.

You can try these drivers - they were not intended for your system, but are for that same wireless card:
