Dell Inspiron 15-3521 Wi-Fi Drivers problem?

Feb 10, 2018 1:54PM PST

Hi guys, recently, i upgraded my Dell Inspiron 15-3521 from Windows 7 to Windows 10.. I did a complete install, with both my partitions formated and so.. All good, till i tried to use Wi-Fi on it.. Nothing would work.. I downloaded the only driver that installed succesfully.. Didn't worked. I updated the driver from Device Manager.. That also didn't worked.. What can i do next?

I got the driver from the official Dell site.. I selected Win 10.. I got the drivers from that site.

OK, Driver but what about Dell's Quickset app.

The Quickset app turns on the WiFi. If you don't install it, you might not have WiFi turned on.
Also, be sure to install the machine's motherboard chipset driver package first.

Time to try some USB WiFi dongle. I usually try a Linux to test hardware but that depends on your choice of how far to chase this one down. Most folk go get the USB WiFi and are done.
