    No Wireless after Upgrade

    Trying to upgrade a DELL Inspiron One 2020. It has the Qualcomm/DELL Wireless 1705 card. I downloaded the Win 10 x64 drivers from DELL and Qualcomm, but still will not connect. I can connect another Win 10 laptop to the same router, so I know I have connection. I searched the internet and couldn't find any real answers. Computer is out of warranty so DELL is no help. Any ideas?

    Try an older driver.

    After my recent upgrade, I kept getting a yellow alert on my WiFi icon and neither of the two in the computer's store did the job, although you could try them via Device Manager/Network adapters - right click on the wireless one and select Update driver then on Browse your computer - but I went to Realtek and the only one for mine didn't even mention Win 10, but it has done the job.

    When you download, select Save and then you'll have it in your Downloads folder as a fall back.
