According to some blog post, there's a hacky way that involves extracting their .exe files using 7zip and putting the binaries to a well-known location - but that seemed a bit too risky for my taste (wouldn't want to brick my machine now if it goes wrong...).
So in the end, I went and bought myself a USB ethernet adapter, which in the end did the trick.
But one thing's for sure: Next time I buy a laptop, I'll look for a manufacturer that cares a bit more about Linux...
@lhinderberger just mentioning because it might be of interest: Dell supports UEFI Updates via fwupdmgr :)
@thomas Thanks, that's good to know 🙂 I hope though that I don't have to replace my laptop any time soon *knock on wood*
