RE: Windows 10 WiGig - Dell 1601 wireless card and D5000 wireless dock

I am very disappointed with the slow Dell response time about this problem ..... I am unable to run Windows 10 with this major malfunction.

They even remove the D5000 from the store and the dell precision m6800 customization  page , also Wilocity is gone acquired by qualcomm and i checked their site in hope of they release any update to their chips , nothing .  so i think is a bad decision i chose to install qualcomm card and buying D5000 .:emotion-6:

Dell still offers the 1601 Wigig card as an option  as of 11:50 (noonish ET) today for M4800 and M6800. It has NOT been removed.

This link however does have me concerned - http://www.dell.com/support/Article/us/en/04/SLN298676/EN

This tells me the new Wigig doc is not backward compatible...

What the heck Dell. So we are left high and dry?

Can we have our systems retro fit by a Dell tech expert? Maybe a trade in program could be organized

The Qualcomm/Wilocity acquisition was completed in July of 2014. If this article has anything to say about  Wigig and how Qualcomm feels I think the answer may be coming soon. Dell may however just wrap the drivers and application in with the standard Aetheros (sp) driver/software pack. I would LOVE it if they would allow it to use Windows 10's new "Connect" button.

Dell have 2 choice to fix this problem

1- force Qualcomm to release a new updated driver for the WiGig chip working on windows 10 in  my laptop that i spend 6000 $ to buy it from dell .

OR

2- change the wireless card from Qualcomm to Intel and replace D5000 with WLD15 .

I prefer the solution number 1 . ASAP

so Dell Release updated driver work on windows  10

I have the same problem. I've tried several options, and the dock won't work with windows 10. I have a latitude e7240, and dell says it's windows 10 certified. I guess that only applies to parts of the notebook. I hoped dell would offer better support. This is a business model computer that includes better warranty and support that the consumer class products.

Still nothing.  Thanks Dell.  What a useless piece of equipment. 

Thinking of buying a Surface Pro.

RE: Windows 10 WiGig - Dell 1601 wireless card and D5000 wireless dock

I have been checking the Dell downloads page daily for anything that will wake up the 1601 Wigig card. So far nothing. Has anyone had any luck getting things to work or any new movement from Dell? 

Things I want for X-mas (or Thanksgiving)

  1. Drivers and software for Wigig on Windows 10 64bit
  2. Factory replacement for the existing Wilocity version customers to an Intel based version that is supposedly working on Windows 10.
  3. Red Rider BB Gun.

RE: Windows 10 WiGig - Dell 1601 wireless card and D5000 wireless dock

This is really quite disappointing.  I spent a substantial amount of money to get the latest and greatest and got everything working with the D5000 only to lose everything that made this setup unique as soon as we switched to windows 10.  If I wanted to use a standard dock I would have bought something else.  The fact that Dell is not providing any compensation really shakes my confidence in the brand.  Just for the record my company was going to standardize on this build for all our employees but after this we may drop dell together.
