Hi Ahsan Mughal,
The inspiron N 5110 is not tested with Windows 8.1, hence there are no drivers available. Please let me know how did you installed the Windows 8.1 and what was the previous operating system.
i simply just download the windows 8.1 provided for me from my university and install it as we install new operating system and my previous operating system was windows 8...
Hi Ahsan Mughal,
Please uninstall the wireless/Bluetooth driver from the programs and features. Follow the steps below.
Start > in search box type in program and features > select the wireless/Bluetooth driver > right click on it and click uninstall.

Right Click the driver installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab > check the box run this program in compatibility mode, Select the appropriate options. Once the driver is installed check if the issue persists.
when uninstalling the "Dell WLAN and Bluetooth client installation", which i supposed to be the driver from programs and features. It says "Installer can not run on this platform. Please select package for your operating system."
Please uninstall the Dell WLAN and Bluetooth driver from device manager, follow the steps below.
Start > in search box type in device manager > under the network > select the wireless and bluetooth and right click on it and uninstall and check the box (delete the software for this device). Restart your computer. Install the Dell wireless/bluetooth driver which I have provided in my previous post.
