Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130 connectivity not working in Windows 10

Hi,

I tested Windows 10 on a Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130, shipped on May 2014 + Dell docking station. After update, the LAN and Wi-Fi will not work. After install, LAN and WiFi indicated Limited Connectivity. And here you have some information that perhaps helps Dell fixing this issue:

1. After executing Windows Troubleshooting by right-clicking the Windows LAN icon, the following errors are detected:

a. We cant communicate with the device or resource (primary DNS server)

b. Your broadband modem is experiencing connectivity issues

2. After uncoupling the Dell Venue 11 Pro from its docking station, and executing Troubleshooting by right-clicking the Windows Wi-Fi icon, the error goes: "The connection between your access point, router or cable modem is broken." It requests to turn off and turn on the router.

All the time, LAN is working as usual in my desktop and Wi-Fi is working well in my two Android devices. 

I updated the Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130 WiFi driver to the Network_Driver_X15C9_WN32_17.15.0.5_A12.EXE. The update did not solve the LAN and WiFi connectivity issue.

I reverted the Dell Venue 11 Pro to Windows 8.1 and LAN and WiFi works as usual. 

Please, any advice to solve this Windows 10 LAN and WiFi issue is welcome.

Hello.

I have the issue too. Upgrading dell driver did not work.

I reverted to. It's a shame to have this issue on a tablet pc less than 1 year old...
