Hi all, I have bought dell inspiron 3180 with windows 10 OS, I was disappointed with windows 10 performance so I downgrade to windows 7 ultimate. I was happy with my windows 7 performance, faster and better but i cant find any wireless network driver for windows 7. If you have any solution please help me... Regard,

That can be the hazard when installing an older version of Windows. Dell never released Windows 7 drivers for that model Inspiron.

I have to assume you have one of the following wifi cards.

I have tried many dell issued drivers for Qualcomm-QCA61x4A-QCA9377 windows 7 64-bit but none of them having success. I think i should roll back my windows 10. Thank you @JOcean for you support.

You may have to however one place I had not thought of at the time. The Windows update catalogue. They have drivers for almost any piece of hardware and might be worth a try.
