Wifi driver problems Inspiron 3543

So this has been happening a while now with this drivers not working properly, before the new year I was using the windows 8 64 bit driver on windows 10 because it seemed to be working but with the update that happened with windows 10 over the new year it is no longer working and neither is the windows 10 driver so what can someone point me in the direction of getting this resolved please? I'm a student and need my laptop for school which starts tommorrow if anyone can help please do if you need any more info message me (yes the ethernet works its just the wireless driver)

Actually tried something different I combined the windows 10 and 8 driver meaning i installed both packages and that seems to be working for me at the moment, it isnt very stable but it gives me more stability than the braodcom or single packaged drivers.

You can also go to the power options, and changed the Wireless Adapter Setting, from Maximum Power Setting to Maximum Performance.

1. Power Option

2. Click on " Change plan settings " - Balance or Power saver)

3. "Change Advance Power Settings "

4. Tap "wireless adapter settings"

a) " Power Saving Mode "

b) Set Maximum Performance

@Durban Dominique could you please tell me which one is the right driver? It would be a great help.

I'm actually using a Dell Inspiron 15 3543. When I try to disable the wifi adapter (Broadcom 802.11n) trough the device manager or when connection is lost and I try to reconnect it, the screen freezes, and the only option is to shut off the computer forcing it (by pressing the power button for 3 seconds or taking the battery away) 

I'm so close to change this laptop because I look in tons of pages for a solution (I'm can't send Dell my computer again because I bought it in the US and I'm outside the country for a long time and I'am not thinking in open the computer and change the wifi antenna because is brand new.

I  really trust you can help me. 

Thanks a lot.

I forgot about this topic tbh but guys there is no cure for this....all the drivers you use even the default ones and generic drivers wont work.....I just changed the wifi card at my local dealer...its an easy change half height wifi card located in the same area where the hard drive and ram stick is....you can practically do it yourself.....as for curing the problem it seems to be the card's themselves that is the problem as NO drivers work for it.

Hello Rahd! Thanks for the quick reply.

Is there a specific antenna you recommend? If that's the solution I wil try to change the default one..

I just don't know if the warranty still covers any problem that the laptop may show after opening it or changing parts..
