RE: Windows 10 - WiFi does not work

Update:

After reviewing my notes, it might have been the following two driver updates that helped. These driver updates are specific to XPS 8700, but I imagine there similar updates for other Dell desktops, laptops, etc. Dell made it much easier with the System Detect tool.

I also highly recommend subscribing (via email or RSS) to Dell Technical Updates. They are almost a secret (not on purpose) as it is hard to find the "how to subscribe" info by searching the Dell website. That link will take you to the right web page though.
