Crippled internet speed problem with the Dell 1707 WLAN Card drivers and Windows 10

I have just purchased an Inspiron 5555 with the Dell 1707 WLAN Card.  The system is using the latest driver (v and Windows 10 Version 1607 OS Build 14393.321.

My wireless link shows a 100% signal strength and is only 10 feet from the router, but even so the maximum transfer speed has not exceeded 54Mbps, which I would associate with 802.11g rather than 802.11n levels.  My broadband service is 200Mbps, so that is not a factor.

My 7 year old PC (Dell Studio 1555 with Dell 1510 Wireless-N WLAN) connects to the same router and acheives speeds of double and more.

It appears obvious that there is an issue with the driver for the 1707 WLAN card, so my question is, when will an updated driver be made available to enable the 1707 card to meet it's full potential.
