That is an old driver you should use version 10.0.0.352:
There is an even newer driver on Windows Update catalog - 10.0.3.456: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=Qualcomm+802.11b%2fg%2fn
I am really hopeful for a driver that contains the patch for the WPA-2 KRACK vulnerability.
According to Del, QCA9377 drivers are available somewhere:
but not on Windows update catalog, the latest driver is still 188.8.131.528:
Also there is nothing in the advisory about QCA9565 driver which most likely would cover Dell Wireless 1703 (PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0032&CC_0280).
Thank you Philip......I lost my Bluetooth capability after I conducted a required Windows 10 update. Found your online fix and installed it.....and I now have my Bluetooth back.
Thanks again.....Phil ( Sydney, Australia)
