I installed win 10 on this computer before I found out Dell was not testing it for system. Worked great until the Aug  9th updates came out and apparently they did something to the drivers, as I had to install Linux in order to use the wireless connection, ethernet down in both systems. Maybe there is a wireless card Dell can recommend for use in the 6420 that would be compatible with win 10 and the 6420. I would like to keep my 6420 for a backup as I have a new laptop now.
