One thing I've just noticed is the driver version on my tablet is 188.8.131.52
However the driver on the Intel website for windows 10 is a bit older: 17.1.1529.1613 even though the date on it is 2 days ago!
So what I'm thinking is maybe the driver 184.108.40.206 is for windows 8 and so when I try to install the latest windows 10 driver the OS says well this is an older driver so I'm not going to let you install it?
I have installed the latest device drivers on the Dell support site as well as a very recent BIOS firmware version. I have not had any dialogue windows pop up preventing me from completing an update. I will check on the Wimdows version number.
The Dell Wireless 1537 WiFi/BT Driver
This is the Driver that should work for you I have the excact same card
Still no luck - I have run this package as administrator.
In device manager please can you confirm what you can see under Network Adapters?
I have 1 item which says:
Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260
When I look at its properties and click the Driver tab it says:
Driver Provider - Intel
Driver Date - 22/02/2015
Driver Version - 220.127.116.11
Digital Signer - Microsoft Windows
Roll Back driver button does nothing.
If I click uninstall driver (advanced) it does not give me the option to delete the driver files which I think is normally a checkbox.
In the end I went to the MS website and downloaded the tool to create a windows 10 media. I then booted off the USB drive I created and did a clean install.
FYI to boot of USB on a dell venue 11 you have to push the volume up key (F12 does not work).
Only problem I have now is I don't have a product key but at least wifi works!!!
No luck with mine either. I have tried numerous times to load the drivers linked and using the drivers on Dell's site after entering my Tag number. I even went down to Best Buy and bought a Nethear USB wifi adapter and it loads the driver but the adapter never shows up in networking even though it does get listed in device manager.
Now that I have logged in I can see there are a lot of things fixed after doing a clean install.
This is definitely the best option. After booting from USB I deleted all the partitions (ie nuked all traces of win 8.1) and things are good.
